We have identified a recurrent de novo pericentromeric deletion in 16p11.2–p12.2 in four individuals with developmental disabilities by microarray-based comparative genomic hybridization analysis. The identification of common clinical features in these four individuals along with the characterization of complex segmental duplications flanking the deletion(More)
INTRODUCTION Previous studies have shown links between anxiety and depression and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), but little is known about possible mechanisms of this association. The current study examined whether the observed relationship between anxiety and depression and COPD is explained by confounding due to cigarette smoking and(More)
INTRODUCTION There is a paucity of empirical information pertaining to the association between personality disorders and cigarette smoking. The present study examined whether, and to what degree, personality disorders are associated with cigarette smoking; investigated the specificity of any observed smoking-personality disorder association; and the role of(More)
The most recently discovered collagen gene, COL27A1, codes for type XXVII collagen. The COL27A1 gene is strongly expressed in developing cartilage and weakly expressed in many other tissue types. The present study was undertaken to identify transcriptional regulatory mechanisms that govern the expression of COL27A1 in cartilage, and in particular to(More)
Qualitative research was used to determine what young black male college students do and believe in the hypertension related areas of nutrition, stress and exercise. Black female college students also were asked about their perception of the men's beliefs and behaviors in regard to the above mentioned areas. The study identified stress, especially the(More)
The purification of a new antibiotic, Ro 22-5417, was achieved by a variety of preparative column chromatographic methods. The antibiotic was obtained crystalline with an overall recovery of 3% after a 300-fold purification. The structure was determined from proton and 13C NMR spectra to be 3-(7-oxo-1-aza-4-oxabicyclo[3.2.0]hept-3-yl)alanine.
Two novel restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) around the DXS115 (767) locus, detectable with the restriction enzymes MspI, are described. Since DXS115 is closely linked to the factor VIII gene (F8C), the MspI RFLP was employed in haemophilia A carrier detection. The utility of these RFLPs lies in the increased applicability and accuracy of(More)
