Polycomb group proteins are essential for early development in metazoans, but their contributions to human development are not well understood. We have mapped the Polycomb Repressive Complex 2 (PRC2) subunit SUZ12 across the entire nonrepeat portion of the genome in human embryonic stem (ES) cells. We found that SUZ12 is distributed across large portions of(More)
Saccharomyces mating-type switching results from replacement by gene conversion of the MAT locus with sequences copied from one of two unexpressed donor loci, HML or HMR. MATa cells recombine with HMLalpha approximately 90% of the time, whereas MATalpha cells choose HMRa 80%-90% of the time. HML preference in MATa is controlled by the cis-acting(More)
Upon detection of antigen, CD4(+) T helper (Th) cells can differentiate into a number of effector types that tailor the immune response to different pathogens. Alternative Th1 and Th2 cell fates are specified by the transcription factors T-bet and GATA-3, respectively. Only a handful of target genes are known for these two factors and because of this, the(More)
Saccharomyces mating-type switching occurs through a double-strand break-initiated gene conversion event at MAT, using one of two donors located distantly on the same chromosome, HMLalpha and HMRa. MATa cells preferentially choose HMLalpha, a decision that depends on the recombination enhancer (RE) that controls recombination along the left arm of(More)
Considering the actual research purpose, this paper has shown the limitations of the existing radiometric normalization approaches and their disadvantages in change detection of artificial objects by comparing the existing radiometric normalization approaches, on the basis of which a preprocessing approach of radiometric consistency based on wavelet(More)
