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)
The location of the HYP gene, which determines X-linked hypophosphataemic rickets, has been refined considerably by linkage analysis, and three new microsatellite primers isolated, Cap32 (DXS7473), Cap29 (DXS7474) and 7v2 (DXS7475). The locations of four other markers have also been determined (DXS1226, AFMa176zb1, AFMa152wc5, and AFM346azc1). Markers Cap29(More)
The effects of tumor-conditioned media (TCM) derived from cultured cells from an oncogenic hypophosphatemic osteomalacia (OHO) tumor on transformed human kidney cells were investigated. Dose-dependent cell detachment and aggregation occurred in kidney cells cultured in serum-free medium supplemented with TCM, but not in skin fibroblast controls, or in(More)
The whole-genome fingerprinting technique, fluorescent amplified-fragment length polymorphism (FAFLP) analysis, was applied to Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Sixty-five clinical isolates were analyzed to determine the value of FAFLP as a stand-alone genotyping technique and to compare it with the well-established IS6110 typing system. The genome sequence of M.(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)
We have screened fourteen kindreds with X-linked hypophosphataemic rickets with four microsatellite markers, viz AFM163yh2, DXS999 (AFM234yf12), DXS443 and DXS365, in order to refine the genetic map flanking the gene, and to define a close flanking interval for the construction of a yeast artificial chromosome (YAC) and cosmid contig. The genetic data were(More)
Three polymorphic markers have been used to improve the genetic map of the region Xp22.1-p22.2, which contains the HYP (hypophosphataemic rickets) locus. DXS365 gave no recombinants with HYP, with a peak Lod score of 5.4 at theta = 0.0. A microsatellite marker mPA274 was derived for the DXS274 locus; it detects five alleles with a polymorphism information(More)
To determine whether fluorescent amplified-fragment length polymorphism (FAFLP) analysis is an unbiased genome sampling technique, data were analysed from three different primer combinations, amplifying three independent fragment subsets from 123 isolates of Neisseria meningitidis. Using these data, dendrograms were generated with near-identical topologies(More)
