The present experiment examined pilot response to the rapid cycling of automation. The experiment was conducted using a multi-task simulation environment consisting of tracking, fuel management, and system monitoring sub-tasks. Monitoring and fuel management sub-tasks were performed manually in all conditions. The tracking sub-task cycled between manual and(More)
Lesch-Nyhan syndrome encompasses a host of neurological symptoms, caused by a deficiency of the purine salvage enzyme, hypoxanthine-guanine phosphoribosyltransferase (HGPRT). How the absence of this enzymes activity affects development of the nervous system is unknown. In this study, we examined the ability of N2aTG, a HGPRT-deficient neuroblastoma and its(More)
Pyrimidine 5' nucleotidase (P5'N-1) deficiency is an autosomal recessive condition causing hemolytic anemia characterized by marked basophilic stippling and the accumulation of high concentrations of pyrimidine nucleotides within the erythrocyte. It is implicated in the anemia of lead poisoning and is possibly associated with learning difficulties.(More)
BACKGROUND Inosine triphosphate pyrophosphohydrolase (ITPase) is a 'house-cleaning' enzyme that degrades non-canonical ('rogue') nucleotides. Complete deficiency is fatal in knockout mice, but a mutant polymorphism resulting in low enzyme activity with an accumulation of ITP and other non-canonical nucleotides, appears benign in humans. We hypothesised that(More)
Lesch Nyhan syndrome is a neurological paediatric condition characterized by mental retardation, choreathotosis and self-mutilation. Biochemically, this condition has been attributed to a deficiency in the purine enzyme, hypoxanthine guanine phosphoribosyltransferase, however, the way this affects the development of the nervous system is still unknown. Ma(More)
BACKGROUND Lesch-Nyhan disease (LND) is a rare X-linked recessive neurogenetic disorder caused by deficiency of the purine salvage enzyme hypoxanthine phosphoribosyltransferase (HPRT, EC 2.4.2.8) which is responsible for recycling purine bases into purine nucleotides. Affected individuals have hyperuricemia leading to gout and urolithiasis, accompanied by a(More)
BACKGROUND Developments in DNA resequencing microarrays include mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequencing and mutation detection. Failure by the microarray to identify a base, compared to the reference sequence, is designated an 'N-call.' This study re-examined the N-call distribution of mtDNA samples sequenced by the Affymetrix MitoChip v.2.0, based on the(More)
