Using the International Project on Genetic Susceptibility to Environmental Carcinogens (GSEC) database containing information on over 15,000 control (noncancer) subjects, the allele and genotype frequencies for many of the more commonly studied metabolic genes (CYP1A1, CYP2E1, CYP2D6, GSTM1, GSTT1, NAT2, GSTP, and EPHX) in the human population were… (More)
We present a wavefront array processor architecture developed at ETCA and dedicated t o r eal-time processing of digital video streams. The core o f t h e a r chitecture is a mesh-connected three-dimensional network of 1024 custom processing elements. Each processing element can perform up to 50 millions 8-or 16-bit operations per second, working with a 25… (More)
Gene sequences in human oocytes were studied to investigate the possibility of diagnosing inherited or sporadic genetic disease before implantation after in vitro fertilisation. By specific amplification the possibility of analysing the DNA from single human oocytes for a specific gene was shown, and genotypes for markers closely linked to cystic fibrosis… (More)
The nucleic acid sequence of the preproinsulin cDNA of carp (Cyprinus carpio), cloned in the PstI site of pBR322 ( Liebscher et al. 1980), has been determined. The sequenced insert of 439 bp includes the complete coding information for carp preproinsulin (108 amino acids), 10 nucleotides of the 5'-and 105 nucleotides of the 3'-nontranslated regions. The… (More)
Since the isolation of a recombinant containing a cDNA sequence for human phenylalanine hydroxylase (hPH) (Woo et al., 1983; Speer et al., 1986) prenatal diagnosis by linked restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLPs) has become possible for families in which phenylketonuria (PKU) occurs (Lidsky et al., 1985a). We describe here the application of a… (More)
Human globin cDNA-derived recombinants with plasmid pCR1 have been prepared for use as specific hybridisation probes and for the partial sequencing of alpha-, beta- and gamma-globin genes.
