High density oligonucleotide arrays offer tremendous potential to study gene changes occurring in disease states. The authors described the first case of using a custom designed high density oligonucleotide probe array containing 750 genes to monitor the changes in mRNA transcript levels occurring after focal ischemia for a period of 3 hours.

G enetic susceptibility to the autoimmune B cell destruction that leads to Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D) is a complex trait. In recent years, many T1D associations have been reported, but only three (major histocompatibility complex, insulin, and cytotoxic T lymphocyte associated protein 4) have been confirmed in several independent studies. 3 Independent(More)
BACKGROUND The 2',5'-oligoadenylate synthetase genes (OAS1, OAS2, and OAS3) map to human chromosome 12q24 and encode a family of enzymes pivotal to innate antiviral defence. Recently, the minor allele of an OAS1 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) that alters splicing (rs10774671) was found to be associated with increased enzymatic activity and, in a(More)
