The National Institutes of Health Mammalian Gene Collection (MGC) Program is a multiinstitutional effort to identify and sequence a cDNA clone containing a complete ORF for each human and mouse gene. ESTs were generated from libraries enriched for full-length cDNAs and analyzed to identify candidate full-ORF clones, which then were sequenced to high(More)
The National Institutes of Health's Mammalian Gene Collection (MGC) project was designed to generate and sequence a publicly accessible cDNA resource containing a complete open reading frame (ORF) for every human and mouse gene. The project initially used a random strategy to select clones from a large number of cDNA libraries from diverse tissues.(More)
T1DBase (http://T1DBase.org) is a public website and database that supports the type 1 diabetes (T1D) research community. The site is currently focused on the molecular genetics and biology of T1D susceptibility and pathogenesis. It includes the following datasets: annotated genome sequence for human, rat and mouse; information on genetically identified T1D(More)
OBJECTIVES A multicenter retrospective study was conducted to investigate the possible metabolic causes of pediatric cardiomyopathy and evaluate the outcome of patients treated with L-carnitine. METHODS Seventy-six patients diagnosed with cardiomyopathy were treated with L-carnitine in addition to conventional cardiac treatment, and 145 patients were(More)
Metabolic and genetic factors underlie some forms of cardiomyopathy in childhood. A variety of inborn errors of metabolism can impair mitochondrial energy production, or beta-oxidation, in the heart and lead to myocardial dysfunction. L-Carnitine, an essential element of beta-oxidation, transports fatty acids across the mitochondrial membrane for energy(More)
The authors analyzed the association of L-carnitine treatment with hepatic survival in 92 patients with severe, symptomatic, valproate-induced hepatotoxicity. Forty-eight percent of the 42 patients treated with L-carnitine survived, but only 10% of the 50 patients treated solely with aggressive supportive care survived (p < 0.001). Early intervention with(More)
