BACKGROUND 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(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)
