We report a direct DNA sequencing analysis of the MECP2 gene undertaken on a further 64 Italian patients with Rett syndrome by using a LICOR 4200 Automated Sequencer. All of the girls entering the study had a consistent clinical diagnosis for this disorder. All coding regions and the flanking intronic splice site sequences were amplified as three(More)
The differential allocation hypothesis (DAH) predicts that individuals should adjust their parental investment to their current mate’s quality. Although in principle the DAH holds for both sexes, male adjustment of parental investment has only been tested in a few experimental studies, revealing contradictory results. We conducted a field experiment to test(More)
The CDC73 gene, encoding parafibromin, has been identified as a tumour suppressor gene both in hyperparathyroidism-jaw tumour (HPT-JT) syndrome and in sporadic parathyroid carcinoma. While the vast majority of CDC73 mutations affect the N-terminus or the central core of the encoded protein, as yet few mutations have been reported affecting the C-terminus.(More)
