We have used the polymerase chain reaction technique (PCR) to clone the cDNA of the D2 dopamine receptor from rat striatal mRNA. Two major PCR products were produced; one product was identical to a previously published rat cDNA, while the other, more abundant product differed only by an 87-nucleotide insert located in the region of the putative third(More)
We introduce a new scheme for stylus-based input of phonetic scripts such as Indic, using a compact smart soft-keyboard. Phonetically related characters are grouped into layers and become dynamically available when the "group-leader" character is accessed. This scheme allows rapid input using taps and flicks. We have developed a prototype for Devanagari(More)
In this paper, we present a practical framework for the syntactic transfer of compound-complex sentences from English to Hindi in the context of a transfer-based Machine Assisted Translation (MAT) system. The analysis is based on the linguistic intuitions of the authors, backed by evidence from a real-life corpus, and ongoing work on a building a practical(More)
Three defective interfering (DI) particles of vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV), all derived from the same parental standard San Juan strain (Indiana serotype), were used in various combinations to infect cells together with the parental virus. The replication of their RNA genomes in the presence of other competing genomes was described by the hierarchical(More)
DNA blot analysis of the cloned rat beta 3-adrenergic receptor gene revealed unexpected restriction enzyme cleavage sites that suggested the presence of one or more introns near the end of the coding block. This region of the rat gene was mapped and sequenced and was found to contain two introns. The first intron occurs 12 amino acids from the end of the(More)
The paper reports on efforts taken to create lexical resources pertaining to Indian languages, using the collaborative model. The lexical resources being developed are: (1) transfer lexicon and grammar from English to several Indian languages, and (2) dependency tree bank of annotated corpora for several Indian languages. The dependency trees are based on(More)
The single-stranded RNA genome of vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV, Indiana serotype, San Juan strain) yields approx. 75 RNase T1-resistant oligonucleotides ranging in size from 10 to 50 bases. Each of the five structural genes, isolated as duplex RNA molecules hybridized to complementary mRNA, contains two or more of these large oligonucleotides. One of the(More)
A small RNA, containing approximately 50 nucleotides, is synthesized by cells coinfected with standard vesicular stomatitis virus and its defective interfering (DI) particles. Infection of cells by standard virus or DI particles alone does not lead to synthesis of significant amounts of small RNA. The RNA is initiated at its 5' end with (p)ppXp and is not(More)
