To identify DNA regions important for basal and hormone-stimulated transcription of the rat PRL gene, a series of clustered point mutations were prepared within the immediate 5' flanking region. DNA fragments representing the wild-type and 19 different linker-scanner mutations of the PRL gene were each linked to a luciferase marker gene, and the DNA(More)
We completed a prospective, population-based cohort study of polio survivors in Olmsted County, Minnesota, between 1986 and 1993. We identified 50 individuals who had had paralytic polio between 1935 and 1960, as representative of all 300 cases of paralytic polio in the county. We completed detailed quantitative clinical and electrophysiologic studies at(More)
