The microsatellite loci FCA045, FCA077, FCA008, and FCA096 are highly variable molecular markers which were used to determine the genetic diversity in 148 captive Leopardus sp. The PCR-amplified products of microsatellite loci were characterized in ABI Prism 310 Genetic Analyzer. Allele numbers, heterozygosity, polymorphism information content, exclusive(More)
Adverse reactions are the main cause of treatment discontinuation among HIV+ individuals. Genes related to drug absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion (ADME) influence drug bioavailability and treatment response. We have investigated the association between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 29 ADME genes and intolerance to therapy in a(More)
Here we present mendelFix, a Perl script for checking Mendelian errors in genome-wide SNP data of trio designs. The program takes 12-recoded PLINK PED and MAP files as input to calculate a series of summary statistics for Mendelian errors, sets missing offspring genotypes that present Mendelian inconsistencies, and implements a simplistic procedure to infer(More)
Optimized methods for extraction and enzyme assay in crude tissue preparations were used to determine the amounts of terminal deoxnucleotidyl transferase (TdT) in malignant lymphomas. The TdT concentration was increased only in lymphoblastic lymphomas (LL) and was as high in these tumours as in the white blood cells from untreated patients with acute(More)
Synthetically-prepared 5'-NH2-dT(pdT)n oligomers (66,n=4 or 7) were immobilized on cyanogen bromide activated cellulose. The influence of temperature, pH, and ionic strength on the rate of the coupling process was studied. The oligomer 5'-NH2-DT(pdT)8 could be elongated enzymatically to the polymers 5'-NH2-dT(pdT)n (n=20, 51 and 84), which could be(More)
