BACKGROUND We have previously identified associations between major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I and resistance towards bacterial and viral pathogens in Atlantic salmon. To evaluate if only MHC or also closely linked genes contributed to the observed resistance we ventured into sequencing of the duplicated MHC class I regions of Atlantic salmon.… (More)
BACKGROUND The products of cyp19, dax, foxl2, mis, sf1 and sox9 have each been associated with sex-determining processes among vertebrates. We provide evidence for expression of these regulators very early in salmonid development and in tissues outside of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal/gonadal (HPAG) axis. Although the function of these factors in… (More)
BACKGROUND Molecular alterations such as DNA microsatellite instability (MSI/RER), single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and loss of heterozygosity (LOH) can occur throughout the genome and be associated with different types of cancer. In the present study, we aimed at detecting molecular alterations within the mismatch DNA repair genes in ovarian cancer… (More)
Thousands of BC children have been affected by pre-natal alcohol exposure. It is estimated that more than three out of every 1,000 infants will be affected in some way by FASD. The loss in human potential is immeasurable. The fi nancial cost is formidable. Each child affected by FASD may require an estimated $1 million to $2 million over the course of their… (More)
