Missense, nonsense, and translationally silent mutations can inactivate genes by altering the inclusion of mutant exons in mRNA, but their overall frequency among disease-causing exonic substitutions is unknown. Here, we have tested missense and silent mutations deposited in the BRCA1 mutation databases of unclassified variants for their effects on exon(More)
Mutations that affect splicing of precursor messenger RNAs play a major role in the development of hereditary diseases. Most splicing mutations have been found to eliminate GT or AG dinucleotides that define the 5' and 3' ends of introns, leading to exon skipping or cryptic splice-site activation. Although accurate description of the mis-spliced transcripts(More)
Retroviruses and retrovirus-derived vectors integrate nonrandomly into the genomes of host cells with specific preferences for transcribed genes, gene-rich regions, and CpG islands. However, the genomic features that influence the transcriptional activities of integrated retroviruses or retroviral vectors are poorly understood. We report here the cloning(More)
The Mouse SAGE Site is a web-based database of all available public libraries generated by the Serial Analysis of Gene Expression (SAGE) from various mouse tissues and cell lines. The database contains mouse SAGE libraries organized in a uniform way and provides web-based tools for browsing, comparing and searching SAGE data with reliable tag-to-gene(More)
We sequenced unselected integration sites of subgroup C Rous sarcoma virus from infected chicken cells and mapped them on the chicken draft genome assembly. Our genome-wide analysis demonstrates the non-random character of subgroup C Rous sarcoma virus integration into genes, gene-rich regions and GC-rich regions. Within genes, there is no significant(More)
