The yeast RAD52-dependent pathway is involved in DNA recombination and double-strand break repair. Yeast ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme UBC9 participates in S- and M-phase cyclin degradation and mitotic control. Using the human RAD52 protein as the "bait" in a yeast two-hybrid system, we have identified a human homolog of yeast UBC9, designated UBE2I, that(More)
The RAD51/RAD52-dependent DNA repair pathway is involved in DNA recombination and DNA double-strand break repair in yeast. Although many proteins in the RAD51/RAD52-dependent DNA repair pathway have been identified in yeast, a novel protein(s) that functions with RAD51/RAD52 may also exist in humans. Using a yeast two-hybrid system, we have identified a(More)
Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality and a leading cause of cardiac transplantation worldwide. Multiple loci and three genes encoding cardiac actin, desmin, and lamin A/C have been described for autosomal dominant DCM. Using recombination analysis, we have narrowed the 10q21-q23 locus to a region of approximately 4.1 cM.(More)
Electrical dosimetry issues are discussed in relation to electrical stun devices (ESDs). A measure of effectiveness is based on a 'threshold factor,' F(T), calculated with a myelinated nerve model that simulates stimulation of a reference-case neuron (20 microm diameter, 1 cm distant). Several ESDs were measured in the laboratory using resistive loads of(More)
The yeast RAD52 protein is required for both homologous DNA recombination and repair of DNA double-strand breaks. RAD52 can bind to the yeast RAD51 protein, which shares a functional similarity with the bacterial RecA protein. The gene encoding the human homolog of the yeast RAD52 protein shares significant N-terminus amino acid homology with the yeast(More)
BACKGROUND Family-based behavioral treatments are effective ways to promote children's weight management through healthy eating and exercise. However, programs typically have high attrition and low attendance. The aim of this study was to obtain in-depth caregiver input on barriers and facilitators to participate in a family-based, behavioral childhood(More)
