Simple sequences are ubiquitous repetitive components of eukaryotic genomes.
Simple sequences are stretches of DNA which consist of only one, or a few tandemly repeated nucleotides, for example poly (dA) X poly (dT) or poly (dG-dT) X poly (dC-dA). These two types of simpleExpand

An optimized freeze-squeeze method for the recovery of DNA fragments from agarose gels.
A procedure for quick and simple elution of DNA from agarose gels is presented. After electrophoresis, bands of interest are cut out of the gel and the slices are equilibrated in a neutral saltExpand

The major dermatomyositis-specific Mi-2 autoantigen is a presumed helicase involved in transcriptional activation.
OBJECTIVE To characterize the complementary DNA (cDNA) and protein sequences of autoantigens recognized by anti-Mi-2 antibodies, using recombinant Mi-2 proteins for improved autoantibody detection.Expand

An Ikaros-Containing Chromatin-Remodeling Complex in Adult-Type Erythroid Cells
ABSTRACT We have previously described a SWI/SNF-related protein complex (PYR complex) that is restricted to definitive (adult-type) hematopoietic cells and that specifically binds DNA sequencesExpand

Autoantibodies against small nucleolar ribonucleoprotein complexes and their clinical associations
Sera from patients suffering from systemic autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and systemic sclerosis (SSc) have been shown to contain reactivities to nuclear components.Expand

A C-terminally-anchored Golgi protein is inserted into the endoplasmic reticulum and then transported to the Golgi apparatus.
Unlike conventional membrane proteins of the secretory pathway, proteins anchored to the cytoplasmic surface of membranes by hydrophobic sequences near their C termini follow a posttranslational,Expand

Autoantibodies directed to novel components of the PM/Scl complex, the human exosome
The autoantigenic polymyositis/scleroderma (PM/Scl) complex was recently shown to be the human homologue of the yeast exosome, which is an RNA-processing complex. Our aim was to assess whether, inExpand

Macrogolgin--a new 376 kD Golgi complex outer membrane protein as target of antibodies in patients with rheumatic diseases and HIV infections.
Antibodies against the Golgi complex (GC) were found by indirect immunofluorescence microscopy in the serum of two patients with sclerodermia and Sjögren syndrome. Serum from one patient was used toExpand

Transition from noncooperative to cooperative and selective binding of histone H1 to DNA.
A transition from noncooperative to cooperative binding of DNA and histone h1 occurs between 20 and 40mMNaCI in 5 mM Tris-HCI, pH 7.5. Below 20mM NaCI in mixtures in H1 and excess DNA, H1 binds toExpand

Molecular genetic analyses of a 376-kilodalton Golgi complex membrane protein (giantin)
Molecular genetic analyses of a 376-kDa Golgi complex (GC) membrane protein (giantin) are described. The immunoglobulin G fraction of a human serum containing antibodies against GC antigens asExpand
