Control of parasite replication exerted by MHC class I restricted CD8+ T-cells in the liver is critical for vaccination-induced protection against malaria. While many intracellular pathogens subvert the MHC class I presentation machinery, its functionality in the course of malaria replication in hepatocytes has not been characterized. Using experimental(More)
Sequence tagged sites generated for 60 NotI clones (NotI-STSs) from human chromosome 3-specific NotI-jumping and NotI-linking libraries were physically located using PCR screening of a radiation hybrid (RH) GeneBridge4 panel. The NotI map of chromosome 3 was generated using these RH-mapping data and those obtained earlier by FISH and sequencing of the(More)
BACKGROUND In cervical tumours the integration of human papilloma viruses (HPV) transcripts often results in the generation of transcripts that consist of hybrids of viral and cellular sequences. Mapping data using a variety of techniques has demonstrated that HPV integration occurred without obvious specificity into human genome. However, these techniques(More)
New comparative genome hybridization technology on NotI-microarrays is presented (Karolinska Institute International Patent WO02/086163). The method is based on comparative genome hybridization of NotI-probes from tumor and normal genomic DNA with the principle of new DNA NotI-microarrays. Using this method 181 NotI linking loci from human chromosome 3 were(More)
We have developed a new type of microarray, restriction site tagged (RST), for example NotI, microarrays. In this approach only sequences surrounding specific restriction sites (i.e. NotI linking clones) were used for generating microarrays. DNA was labeled using a new procedure, NotI representation, where only sequences surrounding NotI sites were labeled.(More)
Ten DNA markers were localized in the human genome by a screening procedure against the radiation hybrid somatic cell panel (GeneBridge 4 RH Panel) using polymerase chain reaction (RH mapping method). DNA markers were developed to nucleotide sequences adjacent to NotI sites of human chromosome 3 (NotI-STS markers) and also to nucleotide sequences of human(More)
The exon-intron structures of the human, rat and mouse ABLIM2 gene were determined in silico. The experimental verification resulted in the revealing of two mRNA isoforms of the ABLIM2 gene. The isoforms a and b contained 20 exons and 18 exons, respectively. The highest expression of both isoforms was observed in rat brain and eye and in mouse embryos. The(More)
The structure was described for human CKAP2, which codes for the cytoskeleton-associated protein 2, is at the boundary of chromosome regions 13q14.3 and 13q21.1, and is rearranged in various tumors. The CKAP2 exonintron structure was established by collating the nucleotide sequences of the cDNA and genomic clone AL359513 (GenBank) and analyzing the gene(More)
Radiation hybrid mapping (RH mapping) is considered as one of the main methods of constructing physical maps of mammalian genomes. In introduction, theoretical prerequisites of developing of the RH mapping and statistical methods of data analysis are discussed. Comparative characteristics of universal commercial panels of the radiation hybrid somatic cells(More)
The exon-intron structure of the human WASF4 gene has been determined. The in silico analysis of the gene promoter region was performed and the presence of transcription factor binding sites was shown. The highest similarity between the WASF4 protein and the human WASF2 protein was revealed. The WASF4 gene homolog was found in chimpanzee and macaque(More)
