Whole exome sequencing (WXS) is widely used to identify causative genetic mutations of diseases. However, not only have several commercial human exome capture platforms been developed, but substantial updates have been released in the past few years. We report a performance comparison for the latest release of four commercial platforms, Roche/NimbleGen's(More)
BACKGROUND Cytochrome P450 2D6 (CYP2D6), one of the most important drug-metabolizing enzymes, has been reported to possess variation in the encoding CYP2D6 gene (cytochrome P450, family 2, subfamily D, polypeptide 6) that affects enzymatic activity. For the pharmacogenetic study of CYP2D6, accurate measurement of the dosage of the functional gene is(More)
Several pharmacogenetic studies have revealed strong associations between specific human leukocyte antigen (HLA) alleles and the susceptibility to drug hypersensitivity. Recently, we reported HLA-B*3505 as a strong genetic biomarker for the nevirapine-induced skin rash in Thai population. Here, we developed a new HLA-B*3505 genotyping method by a(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Carbamazepine (CBZ) is widely used for the treatment of epilepsy and other neurological disorders. However, 3-5% of CBZ-treated individuals suffer from cutaneous adverse drug reactions (cADRs). Recently, in a genome-wide association study, HLA-A*31:01 has been reported to be a strong genetic marker for CBZ-induced cADRs in both Japanese(More)
We synthesized useful intermediates 5 and 6 for 1 beta- and 1 alpha-methylcarbapenems from 4-carboxy-3-[(R)-1-hydroxyethyl]-2-azetidinone 4 as a starting material by using stereoselective hydrogenation and hydroboration, respectively. A practical synthetic route from 4 to the (3S,4S)-4-[(R)-1-carboxyethyl]-3-[(R)-1-hydroxyethyl]-2-azetidinone derivative 1,(More)
