The aim of the present study was to identify the deletion/insertion polymorphism of the bovine prion protein gene (PRNP) within the promoter sequence (23 bp), intron 1 (12 bp) and 3’ untranslated region (14 bp). DNA was isolated from blood of 234 randomly tested Polish Holstein-Friesian cows and from semen of 47 sires used for artificial insemination (AI)(More)
The molecular basis of BLAD is the D128G mutation of the gene coding for the CD 18 subunit of beta—2 integrin. This mutation is lethal, since homozygous (BL/BL) animals die before they reach sexual maturity. In the 1990s, BLAD was the most widespread genetic disease in HF cattle worldwide. The aim of the present study was to determine the frequency of BLAD(More)
The aim of the present study was to identify deletion/insertion polymorphism of the bovine prion protein (PRNP) gene within the promoter sequence (23 bp indel), intron 1 (12 bp indel) and the 3′ end untranslated region (14 bp indel). The experiment was performed on three groups of animals protected under a genetic resources conservation program: 139 Polish(More)
The aim of our study was to estimate the serum levels of glucose, insulin, C-peptide and uric acid in patients with psoriasis before and after treatment. The study included 12 males with active form of psoriasis and 15 control subjects carefully matched to the psoriatic patients for age and BMI. All measured parameters were in patients with psoriasis(More)
The hypereosinophilic syndrome is a multi-organ disease characterized by large counts of eosinophils in peripheral blood observed during at least six months without any evidence for other known causes of eosinophilia. Idiopathic hypereosinophilia is rare and is always diagnosed by exclusion of other disease. This work describes a man aged 21 years who was(More)
DUMPS (Deficiency of Uridine Monophosphate Synthase) is a hereditary recessive disorder in Holstein cattle causing early embryo mortality during its implantation in the uterus. The only way to avoid the economic losses is early detection of DUMPS carriers. Because American Holstein semen has been intensively imported to Poland since 1970, there was a risk(More)
Purpose: The aim of this study is an estimation of the visual evoked potentials (VEP) in patients with psoriasis vulgaris. The role of the nervous system was pointed out in the pathogenesis of psoriasis. Also epidemiologic research confirms that patients with psoriasis are at increased risk of MS development. Materials and methods: A group of 30 psoriatic(More)
Nucleotide and amino acid sequences of cattle amelogenin, the major protein of forming enamel, were analysed by screening 1547 samples collected from cattle of various breeds. Sequenced was the part of cattle exon six of the AMEL gene (codons from 107 to 186) encompassing so-called hot spot of mutation in the mammals amelogenin gene. The analysis showed the(More)
The European pond turtle, Emys orbicularis, inhabits a wide distribution area in the western Palaearctic. Polish populations of pond turtle represent the nominotypical subspecies Emys orbicularis orbicularis. The mitochondrial DNA haplotype (cytb gene) variation among 131 turtles from 26 locations in five regions of Poland was investigated. Five haplotypes(More)
The localization of the Po2 locus controlling a polymorphic serum postalbumin was studied in 41 families of the Czech Landrace breed. The haplotypes involving six closely linked loci (S, Phi, Hal, H, Po2, Pgd) were determined for each family member. The crossovers observed between the H, Po2 and Pgd loci indicated that Po2 is located between H and Pgd. The(More)
