The rad10, rad16, rad20, and swi9 mutants of the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe, isolated by their radiation sensitivity or abnormal mating-type switching, have been shown previously to be allelic. We have cloned DNA correcting the UV sensitivity or mating-type switching phenotype of these mutants and shown that the correcting DNA is encompassed in(More)
The switching gene swi10+ has a function in mating-type switching as well as in the repair of radiation damages. We have cloned the genomic swi10+ gene by functional complementation of the switching defect of the swi10-154 mutant. The swi10+ gene is not essential for viability. The DNA sequence revealed an open reading frame of 759 nucleotides interrupted(More)
Neurological manifestations in Whipple's disease are highly variable and tend to occur at later stages of the disease. However, isolated, focal neurological symptoms are reported to be rare. Here we describe the successful treatment of a case of cerebral Whipple's disease initially presenting solely with isolated myoclonic jerks of the left hand and forearm(More)
Molecular genetic studies demonstrate that the human cone opsin gene array on the q-arm of the X-chromosome typically consists of one long-wave-sensitive (L) cone opsin gene and from one to several middle-wave-sensitive (M) cone opsin genes. Although the presence of the single L-cone opsin gene and at least one M-cone opsin gene is essential for normal(More)
