We report the construction of 370 sequence-tagged sites (STSs) that are detectable by PCR amplification under sets of standardized conditions and that have been regionally mapped to human chromosome 11. DNA sequences were determined by sequencing directly from cosmid templates using primers complementary to T3 and T7 promoters present in the cloning vector.(More)
Allelic variation at multiple genetic loci may contribute to hypertension. Since autonomic/sympathetic dysfunction may play an early, pathogenic, heritable role in hypertension, we evaluated candidate loci likely to contribute to such dysfunction, including catecholamine biosynthetic enzymes, catecholamine transporters, neuropeptides, and adrenergic(More)
The construction of physical maps of the human genome using sequence-tagged site content mapping requires that thousands of PCR amplifications be performed. On this scale, measures to reduce cost and to increase throughput become serious considerations. We describe relatively simple measures developed in our laboratory that increase the rate at which these(More)
We aimed to investigate whether aging increases the susceptibility of hepatic and renal inflammation or fibrosis in response to high-fat diet (HFD) and explore the underlying genetic alterations. Middle (10 months old) and old (20 months old) aged, male C57BL/6N mice were fed either a low-fat diet (4 % fat) or HFD (60 % fat) for 4 months. Young (3 months(More)
Physical mapping of human chromosomes at a resolution of 100 kb to 1 Mb will provide important reagents for gene identification and framework templates for ultimately determining the complete DNA sequence. Sequence-tagged site (STS) content mapping, coupled with large fragment cloning in yeast artificial chromosomes, provides an efficient mechanism for(More)
