Various kinds of simple tandemly repetitive DNA sequences are abundantly interspersed in the genomes of practically all eukaryotic species studied. The comparatively elevated mutation rates of simple repeat blocks result in highly polymorphic and therefore extremely informative investigation systems for studies on forensic, ecological and genetic(More)
The 3′-end of the cDNA encoding the smg GDP dissociation stimulator (smg GDS) protein shares 100% homology with the previously published expressed sequence tag 00038 site. This site extends the 3′-end of the smg GDS gene by 212 bp. It has been localized to human chromosome 4. Here, we have refined the localization of smg GDP to human chromosome 4q21-q25(More)
In order to investigate the organization (and inheritance) of simple tandem (GAA)n repeats in the human genome, different restriction enzymes were employed for DNA digestion followed by separation of the resulting fragments by agarose gel electrophoresis. Frequently cutting enzymes (4 bp recognition sites) revealed highly complex multilocus banding patterns(More)
The gene encoding the brain alpha 2-adrenergic receptor (ADRA2C) is located on human chromosome 4. It has been circumstantially associated with a number of human disorders, including Parkinson disease, panic disorders, and Huntington disease (HD). Using somatic cell hybrids, we localized the gene to chromosome 4p16 distal to P8 (D4S62). To investigate this(More)
A cosmid library has been constructed from a hamster x human hybrid cell line and gridded into 270 microtiter plates containing a total of 25,920 single colonies. Approximately 84% of the recombinants contain human material, with an average length of 29 kb. This library represents a nearly three-fold coverage of human chromosome 4. We investigated this(More)
A cosmid library specific for human chromosome 11 has been constructed from flow-sorted chromosomes. The flow-purified chromosomes were prepared from the hamster/human hybrid line J1 which contains chromosome 11 as the only human chromosome. Individual clones were sampled in 187 microtitre plates, resulting in a total of 17 952 colonies. Hybridization(More)
Conventional methods for labeling double-stranded DNA lead to high specific activity. Yet they often alter the target DNA sequence to such an extent as to prevent a meaningful protein/DNA interaction analysis. Therefore we tried to establish a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based method which allows radiolabeling to high specific activity and should(More)
