Diandric heterozygous diploid mouse embryos were produced by standard micromanipulatory techniques using eggs from female mice with a normal chromosome constitution and fertilised by homozygous Rb(1.3)1Bnr males containing a pair of large metacentric marker chromosomes in their karyotype. The constructed diandric eggs were transferred to the oviducts of(More)
Standard micromanipulatory techniques were used to produce tripronucleate diandric and digynic triploid mouse conceptuses. When these were transferred to suitable recipients, most implanted. A wide range of embryonic stages from the primitive streak to the 15- to 25-somite stage were isolated in both triploid series in otherwise identical recipients. In the(More)
Diandric triploid mouse embryos were produced by standard micromanipulatory techniques, using eggs isolated from female mice with a normal chromosome constitution that had been mated to homozygous Rb(1.3)1Bnr males (which carry a large metacentric "marker" chromosome, viz., a Robertsonian translocation involving chromosomes 1 and 3). The tripronucleate(More)
The family B DNA polymerase gene from the euryarchaeon Thermococcus waiotapuensis (Twa) contains an open reading frame of 4404 bases that encodes 1467 amino acid residues. The gene is split by two intein-coding sequences that forms a continuous open reading frame with the three polymerase exteins. Twa DNA polymerase genes with (whole gene) and without(More)
The Thermococcus celericrescens (Tcel) DNA polymerase gene, which contains a 2328-bp open reading frame that encodes 775 amino acid residues, was expressed in the Escherichia coli strain Rosetta(DE3)pLysS. The expressed enzyme was purified through heat treatment, HisTrap™ HP column chromatography and then HiTrap™ SP HP column chromatography. Tcel DNA(More)
Isolated blastomeres from 8- to 16-cell-stage embryos were fused by standard micromanipulatory means with either unfertilized eggs or fertilized or haploid parthenogenetically activated pronuclear-stage embryos. The hybrid eggs/embryos were incubated overnight in the presence of Colcemid until they had entered the first cleavage division. Air-dried(More)
Diandric and digynic triploid mouse embryos were isolated in the morning on day 10 of gestation. The embryos were separated from their extraembryonic membranes, and the latter were analysed cytogenetically by G-banding to establish the ploidy and sex chromosome constitution of these embryos. The diandric triploid embryos were produced by the technique of(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of early tamsulosin treatment on changes in bladder characteristics after a spinal cord injury. METHODS We divided 45 rats into three groups: the control (CON) group, the spinal cord injury (SCI) group, and the SCI+tamsulosin treatment (SCI+TAM) group. Spinal cord transection was performed in the SCI and SCI+TAM(More)
