A 28-year-old normal East Indian was found to have a pericentric inversion of the Y chromosome. After reviewing the literature, it was concluded that an inverted Y chromosome does not impede the production of normal sperm and does not predispose to non-disjunction of other chromosomes in the progeny. Thus, the earlier concept of nondisjunction was rejected,(More)
UNLABELLED Strong evidence supports the idea that fatty acids rather than carbohydrates are the main energy source of Mycobacterium tuberculosis during infection and latency. Despite that important role, a complete scenario of the bacterium's metabolism when lipids are the main energy source is still lacking. Here we report the development of an in vitro(More)
The frequency of different types of satellite associations of nucleolar organizing human chromosomes (i.e. acrocentric chromosomes; 13, 14, 15, 21, and 22) is reported using 10 normal individuals by Ag-staining technique. The preferential involvement of acrocentric chromosomes in satellite association is suggested. Only acrocentric chromosomes with active(More)
A study on the prevalence of rotavirus G and P genotypes was carried out based on 253 stool specimens obtained from children living in the Colombia northern coast region who were less than 3-years-old and who suffered from acute diarrhea. A previous study had detected the presence of rotavirus A in 90 (36.5%) of the 246 samples tested by enzyme immunoassay(More)
DevR is a transcriptional regulator that mediates the genetic response of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Mycobacterium bovis to oxygen limitation and nitric oxide exposure. devR is part of an operon that includes the genes devS and Rv3134c, which encode an oxygen sensor protein and a protein that contains a universal stress protein domain, respectively.(More)
We report here the whole-genome sequence of the multidrug-resistant Beijing-like strain Mycobacterium tuberculosis 323, isolated from a 15-year-old female patient who died shortly after the initiation of second-line drug treatment. This strain is representative of the Beijing-like isolates from Colombia, where this lineage is becoming a public health(More)
Adsorption has been used to study the removal of atenolol, caffeine, diclofenac and isoproturon, pharmaceutical compounds as emerging contaminants and an endocrine disruptor from ultrapure water and a municipal wastewater treatment plant effluent with three carbonaceous materials: activated carbon, multiwalled carbon nanotubes and carbon nanofibers. The(More)
Eighty normal American blacks were studied by the CBG technique (C-bands by barium hydroxide using Giemsa) for estimation of size and inversion heteromorphism of chromosomes 1, 9, and 16, and the data were compared to those of whites using subjectively defined criteria. Size and inversion heteromorphisms were classified into 5 levels. The frequencies of(More)
In the present report we examined the position of the Y chromosome with respect to its size and race to determine their relationship to its peripheral location. Peripheral blood lymphocytes were cultured from 172 normal male individuals (70 Asian Indians; 49 American Blacks; and 53 Caucasians) and 2770 QFQ cells were photographed. The length of the Y(More)
Several investigators have attempted to correlate chromosomal abnormalities with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CLS), but none of them have been conclusive. The homozygous inversion of 9qh found in the present case has not been found previously. It remains to be clarified whether the presence of this finding in CLS was simply a coincidence or whether(More)
