BACKGROUND DNA tracts composed of only two bases are possible in six combinations: A+G (purines, R), C+T (pyrimidines, Y), G+T (Keto, K), A+C (Imino, M), A+T (Weak, W) and G+C (Strong, S). It is long known that all-pyrimidine tracts, complemented by all-purines tracts ("R.Y tracts"), are excessively present in analyzed DNA. We have previously shown that R.Y(More)
Abstract Previous studies in this laboratory and others have demonstrated both stimulation and inhibition of vasopressin release by norepinephrine. In other regions of the central nervous system, diverse effects of norepinephrine reflect activation of different types of adrenergic receptors and the interaction of norepinephrine with other regulatory(More)
A program to map the locations and frequencies of DNA tracts composed of only two bases ('Binary DNA') is described. The program, TRACTS (URL http://bioportal.weizmann.ac.il/tracts/tracts.html and/or http://bip.weizmann.ac.il/miwbin/servers/tracts) is of interest because long tracts composed of only two bases are highly over-represented in most genomes.
