Affective disorder (AD) is one of the major forms of functional psychoses. Although the mode of transmission is uncertain, family, twin and adoption studies strongly suggest a genetic involvement. Because a basic biochemical abnormality is not known, direct analysis of the disease using a probe for the defective gene is not possible. However, a specific(More)
It has been known for > 10 years that there are two alleles of the human ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) gene, defined by a polymorphic PstI RFLP in intron 1. We have sequenced a large portion of each of the two alleles, including some of the 5' promoter region, exon 1, intron 1, and exon 2, and determined that a single nucleotide polymorphism at base +317(More)
Models are widely used to assist water managers in their duties, yet there is little advice to help water managers select a model appropriate to their particular application. The advice that is available is specific to either the application type or models considered, focused on one aspect of model application, e.g. goodness-of-fit comparisons between(More)
This paper presents the sensitivity analysis of a well-known in-stream water quality model, QUESTOR (QUality Evaluation and Simulation TOol for River systems) as applied to two rivers of contrasting land-use in the northeast of England: the 'rural' Ouse and the 'urban' Aire. The analysis employed a version of the Fourier Amplitude Sensitivity Test (FAST)(More)
Targeted overexpression of an ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) transgene to mouse skin (the K6/ODC mouse) significantly enhances susceptibility to carcinogenesis. While in most strain backgrounds the predominant tumor type resulting from initiation-promotion protocols is benign squamous papilloma, K6/ODC mice on a FVB/N background develop malignant squamous(More)
