As visualized by in situ hybridization with fluorescence detection, newly amplified CAD genes in 10(5) cell colonies are contained in multiple copies of very large regions of DNA, each tens of megabases long. The extra DNA is usually linked to the short arm of chromosome B9, which retains CAD at its normal site. The widely spaced genes are often(More)
BACKGROUND Carrying the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 2A (CDKN2A) germline mutations is associated with a high risk for melanoma. Penetrance of CDKN2A mutations is modified by pigmentation characteristics, nevus phenotypes, and some variants of the melanocortin-1 receptor gene (MC1R), which is known to have a role in the pigmentation process. However,(More)
Within the last 25 years, bacteriophage integrases have rapidly risen to prominence as genetic tools for a wide range of applications from basic cloning to genome engineering. Serine integrases such as that from ϕC31 and its relatives have found an especially wide range of applications within diverse micro-organisms right through to multi-cellular(More)
Epidemiological studies show a very high relative risk for first degree relatives of probands with thyroid cancer. The familial form of nonmedullary thyroid carcinoma (NMTC) gives a more severe phenotype and appears earlier than its sporadic counterpart. Moreover, benign thyroid pathologies are often observed in NMTC kindreds. Little is known about the(More)
Comparative identification of cerebral regions activated in men and women during perception of indefinite images was carried out by fMRT and psychological testing. Nine men and nine women aged 20–26 years took part in the study. The volunteers examined simple geometric figures, slightly structurized images (tables from Rorschach’s test), and images of(More)
