Mutations of EFNB1 cause the X-linked malformation syndrome craniofrontonasal syndrome (CFNS). CFNS is characterized by an unusual phenotypic pattern of inheritance, because it affects heterozygous females more severely than hemizygous males. This sex-dependent inheritance has been explained by random X-inactivation in heterozygous females and the(More)
Craniofrontonasal syndrome (CFNS) is an X-linked malformation syndrome with variable phenotype that is caused by mutations in the ephrin-B1 gene (EFNB1). Over 50% of EFNB1 mutations result in premature termination codons that may elicit mRNA degradation by the nonsense-mediated decay pathway. To assess the effects of various mutations at the transcript(More)
VPMS1 is a Vibrio parahaemolyticus lytic phage isolated from a marine clam. The 42.3-kb genome was predicted to encode 53 proteins. Comparison of the VPMS1 DNA genome with known phage genomes revealed no similarity; hence, it represents a new VP phage, organized into three differently oriented modules. The module for packaging covers 12 % of the genome, the(More)
We consider the exact path sampling of the squared Bessel process and some other continuous-time Markov processes, such as the CIR model, constant elasticity of variance diffusion model, and hypergeometric diffusions, which can all be obtained from a squared Bessel process by using a change of variable, time and scale transformation, and/or change of(More)
