We have demonstrated that DSCR1 acts as a negative regulator of calcineurin-mediated signaling and that its transcript is overexpressed in the Down syndrome (DS) fetal brain. To evaluate the possible involvement of DSCR1 in DS, we have cloned the mouse gene and analyzed its expression pattern in the central nervous system (CNS). Early expression of Dscr1 is(More)
We have developed a simple, straightforward procedure to isolate exons from cloned human genomic DNA. The method is PCR based and relies upon the conservation of splice-site sequences and the frequency of Alu repeat elements in the genome to capture coding sequences. We designed two different sets of primers: a primer from each end of the Alu element and(More)
We have used PCR amplification to analyse the allele frequency, distribution and heterozygosity of 5 microsatellite markers (D1S117, D6S89, D11S35, APOC2, and D21S168), in a sample of 100 unrelated Spanish individuals. The loci tested exhibit wide allelic variability having 7-17 alleles, PIC (polymorphic information content) between 0.79 and 0.86, and(More)
By Alu-splice PCR we have trapped two exons and subsequently identified the full length cDNA of a human gene, Intersectin (ITSN), which maps to chromosome 21q22.1 between markers D21S320 and D21S325. The gene has the potential to code for at least two different protein isoforms by alternative splicing (ITSN-L and ITSN-S). Intersectin exists with a high(More)
