AIMS Ethyl glucuronide (EtG) in hair is a proposed biomarker for alcohol consumption. This study compares hair EtG concentrations with self-reported alcohol consumption data, in individuals with a range of alcohol use. METHODS Hair was collected from 100 participants with a range of alcohol use. Participants completed an Alcohol Use Disorders(More)
The total synthesis of a 207-base pair-long DNA, which is biologically functional as a tyrosine suppressor transfer RNA gene, has been completed. The synthesis involved the enzymatic joining of the previously synthesized duplexes. Thus, the duplex corresponding to the promoter region [P] (Sekiya, T., Brown, E.L., Ramamoorthy, B., Fritz, H.-J., Gait, M.J.,(More)
In two studies in the city of Glasgow, 236 mothers and their newly born infants and 117 mothers and their 6-weeks old children's environmental lead exposure were examined. In both studies blood lead concentrations were found to correlate significantly with the cube root of the domestic water lead concentrations. In the first study, multiple regression(More)
The association between domestic water lead concentrations and blood lead concentrations has been examined in 232 mothers at delivery. The blood lead was found to vary significantly with the cube root of the water lead. This association was stronger for first flush water lead rather than for running water lead. This study emphasises the danger to mothers(More)
By use of polynucleotide kinase and polynucleotide ligase, the 10 deoxyoligonucleotide segments, whose syntheses have been described in accompanying papers, have been joined to form the 62-nucleotide-long DNA corresponding to the promoter region of an Escherichia coli suppressor tRNA gene. The following sequence in the joining reactions was used to obtain(More)
Chemical syntheses of the two dodecanucleotides d(T-C-A-A-C-G-T-A-A-C-A-C) and d(A-C-G-T-T-G-A-G-A-A-A-G), the two undecanucleotides d(T-T-T-A-C-A-G-C-G-G-C) and d(T-G-T-A-A-A-G-T-G-T-T), the decanucleotide d(A-G-T-C-C-G-A-A-A-G), and the nonanucleotide d(A-A-T-T-C-T-T-T-C) are described. These deoxyribo-oligonucleotide segments, excluding the(More)
Reverse phase high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) using columns containing microparticulate materials with bonded octadecyl groups has been developed as a rapid and efficient method for the separation of nucleosides, nucleotides, and, in particular, of protected oligonucleotides which are standard intermediates in the stepwise synthesis of(More)
