In order to investigate the possible mechanism underlying the random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) fingerprinting, we examined the origin and the nucleotide sequences of RAPD bands. Our data suggest that a number of sites in the genome are flanked by perfect or imperfect invert repeats, which permit multiple mismatch-annealing to occur between the single(More)
The inbred mouse strains, Balb/c and SJL/J, have been widely used in biomedical research to unravel the genetic basis of susceptibility to tumors, viral diseases, autoimmune encephalitis, atopic disorders and neuro-retinopathies. In this study we attempted to identify DNA polymorphisms that distinguish them using RAPD assay. Screening of the genomic DNA of(More)
In India, many of the fish farmers stock 1-year-old stunted fishes (stunted yearlings) of Indian major carps (IMC) for enhancing fish production through compensatory growth, but many of them observed problems of early maturation in these fishes. Application of aromatase inhibitors for deceleration of ovarian maturation is one of the probable solutions to(More)
Allergen-induced synthesis of lgE Abs in genetically predisposed individuals constitutes the hallmark of allergic diseases; however, the molecular basis of this genetic predisposition remains unknown. T cell cytokines lL-4 and IFN-gamma reciprocally regulate lgE synthesis and are potential genetic factors governing atopy. To examine the inheritance patterns(More)
