A highly conserved repetitive DNA sequence, (TTAGGG)n, has been isolated from a human recombinant repetitive DNA library. Quantitative hybridization to chromosomes sorted by flow cytometry indicates that comparable amounts of this sequence are present on each human chromosome. Both fluorescent in situ hybridization and BAL-31 nuclease digestion experiments(More)
The rat serum albumin gene has been isolated from a recombinant library containing the entire rat genome cloned in the lambda phage Charon 4A. Preliminary R-loop and restriction analysis has revealed that this gene is split into at least 14 fragments (exons) by 13 intervening sequences (introns), and that it occupies a minimum of 14.5 kilobases of genomic(More)
Curdlan is produced by Agrobacterium sp. ATCC 31749 under nitrogen-limited conditions not associated with cell growth. A novel curdlan production process was developed based on the different nutrient requirements for microbial cell growth and its efficiency was increased by integrating carbon/nitrogen sources control and sequencing dual fed-batch fermentors(More)
The distribution of interspersed repetitive DNA sequences in the human genome has been investigated, using a combination of biochemical, cytological, computational, and recombinant DNA approaches. "Low-resolution" biochemical experiments indicate that the general distribution of repetitive sequences in human DNA can be adequately described by models that(More)
The empoyment of a novel method of affinity chromatography, which makes use of antibodies that specifically bind DNA/RNA hybrids, has made it possible to enrich for rat rDNA molecules which contain R loops formed with the 18S and 28S rRNAs. An approximately 150-fold enrichment of the ratrRNA coding sequences was obtained by this affinity chromatography(More)
The size and arrangement of repetitive and inverted repeat (foldback) sequences in rat DNA were studied by visualization of hybrid and heteroduplex structures in the electron microscope. The self-reassociation of repetitive sequence-bearing DNA strands often results in the formation of four-ended "H" structures, whose duplex regions equal the repetitive(More)
Bluetooth is an emerging technology to build a solution for providing short range, low power, low cost, and ubiquitous wireless environments. In this paper we propose a algorithm for asynchronous data traffic at the Medium Access Control(MAC) layer to meet Bluetooth characteristic and compare with other scheduling algorithms. The algorithm, named Efficient(More)
A neutral high salt tolerant protease from Aspergillus oryzae CICIM F0899 which could be used for soy sauce production and other relevant applications under high-salt conditions was purified to homogeneity through ammonium sulfate precipitation, ion-exchange chromatography and gel filtration chromatography with overall recovery of 2%. Its molecular weight(More)
We present a dual-species oven and Zeeman slower setup capable of producing slow, high-flux atomic beams for loading magneto-optical traps. Our compact and versatile system is based on electronic switching between different magnetic field profiles and is applicable to a wide range of multi-species experiments. We give details of the vacuum setup, coils, and(More)
