BACKGROUND Oxidative DNA lesions have not been well studied in traumatic brain injury (TBI). METHODS TBI was induced with a controlled cortical impact injury in rats. Brain tissue was examined for 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine (oh8dG) using mono-clonal antibodies at different time frames; 15 minutes (n = 4), 30 minutes (n = 7), 60 minutes (n = 6), and 240(More)
Human chromosome 12 contains more than 1,400 coding genes and 487 loci that have been directly implicated in human disease. The q arm of chromosome 12 contains one of the largest blocks of linkage disequilibrium found in the human genome. Here we present the finished sequence of human chromosome 12, which has been finished to high quality and spans(More)
A solid-phase enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) has been developed to detect and quantify the K88 fimbrial adhesin antigen. The assay was used to detect cell-bound antigen present in bacterial suspensions and cell-free K88 antigen present in extracts. Comparable amounts of K88 antigen were detected with whole bacteria and in the equivalent extracts.(More)
The repair of oxidative DNA lesions (ODLs) in the nucleus of ischemic cortical brain cells was examined following experimentally induced stroke by occluding the right middle cerebral artery and both common carotid arteries for 60-90 min followed by reperfusion in male long-Evans hooded rats. The control group consisted of sham-operated animals undergoing(More)
