Expansion of trimer repeats has recently been described as a new type of human mutation. Of the 64 possible trimer compositions, only the CGG and CAG repeats have been implicated in genetic diseases. This study intends to address two questions: (1) What makes the CGG and CAG repeats unique? (2) Could other trimer repeats be involved in this type of(More)
Antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs) are capable of blocking the expression of targeted genes and are potential antitumor and antiviral therapeutic agents. The specificity of ASO gene inhibition is compromised when homology to other sequences allows the selected ASO to bind to nontargeted mRNAs. To reduce this nonspecific activity, an ASO should target a(More)
Aim Early detection of high-grade malignancy using enhanced MRI techniques significantly increases not only the treatment options available, but also the patients’ survival rate. For this purpose, we have developed a new method, termed “Active-Feedback MRI”. An active feedback electronic device was homebuilt to implement active-feedback pulse sequences to(More)
A new highly sensitive and selective chromogenic reagent, dibromo-p-methyl-methylsulfonazo (DBM-MSA), was studied for determination of lead. In 0.24 mol l(-1) phosphoric acid medium, which greatly increases the selectivity, lead reacts with DBM-MSA to form a 1:2 blue complex which has a sensitive absorption peak at 642 nm. Under the optimal conditions,(More)
Th and rare earth elements (REE) react with m-carboxychlorophosphonazo (CPAmK) in the absence of cetylpyridinium chloride (CPC) to form colour complexes. The molar absorptivities for Th and Ce are 1.03 x 10(5) and 1.06 x 10(5) 1.mole(-1).cm(-1) respectively. In the presence of CPC, REE-complexes are not formed because of micellar masking, while Th gives a(More)
Scandium in the presence of cerium(III) forms, with p-acetylchlorophosphonazo (CPApA), a heteropolynuclei ternary beta-complex of scandium-cerium-CPApA. The complex gives a very sensitive reaction for scandium with a molar absorptivity of epsilon(Sc) = 2.29 x 10(5) l mol(-1) cm(-1) due to the cocoloration effect. Most foreign ions can be tolerated in(More)
Rare earth elements react with p-acetylchlorophosphonazo (CPApA) to form colour complexes. In the presence of emulsifier OP and cetylpyridinium chloride (CPC), the yttrium complex is not formed because of micellar masking, while the cerium subgroup rare earths give more sensitive reactions with CPApA(epsilon(Ce) = 1.16 x 10(5) 1 . mol(-1) . cm(-1)) due to(More)
