The mouse t complex responder (Tcr) locus plays a central haploid-specific role in the transmission ratio distortion phenotype expressed during germ cell differentiation in t-carrying males. The accumulated data map Tcr to a region of less than 500 kb. Over 400 kb of this region has been cloned and consists entirely of sequences associated with a clustered(More)
The mouse Tcr locus is defined by its central role in the transmission ratio distortion phenotype characteristic of t haplotypes. A molecular candidate for Tcr has been identified in the form of a gene--Tcp-10b--expressed during spermatogenesis. Tcp-10b is one member of a multigene family present in two to four copies on different homologs of chromosome 17.(More)
The mouse Tcp-10 gene has been established as a molecular candidate for the t complex responder locus which plays a central role in the transmission ratio distortion phenotype expressed by males heterozygous for a t haplotype. Here we describe a comparison of the mouse and human TCP10 coding sequences. The results show that whole exons have been added or(More)
No matter how rote the task or how vigilant the anesthesiologist, “slips” and other errors represent expected aspects of human performance. Evaluation and subsequent improvement of standard checkout procedures promises to increase patient safety in the perioperative period by removing more of the “human factors” so often implicated in anesthesia adverse(More)
Many methods used to improve hospital and perioperative services productivity and quality of care have assumed that the hospital is essentially a factory, and therefore, that industrial engineering and manufacturing-derived redesign approaches such as Six Sigma and Lean can be applied to hospitals and perioperative services just as they have been applied in(More)
