Mutations in the PEX gene at Xp22.1 (phosphate-regulating gene with homologies to endopeptidases, on the X-chromosome), are responsible for X-linked hypophosphataemic rickets (HYP). Homology of PEX to the M13 family of Zn2+ metallopeptidases which include neprilysin (NEP) as prototype, has raised important questions regarding PEX function at the molecular(More)
Fluorescent amplified-fragment length polymorphism (FAFLP), a genotyping technique with phylogenetic significance, was applied to 123 isolates of Neisseria meningitidis. Nine of these were from an outbreak in a British university; 9 were from a recent outbreak in Pontypridd, Glamorgan; 15 were from sporadic cases of meningococcal disease; 26 were from the(More)
