OBJECTIVES Point-of-care, home international normalized ratio (INR) monitoring (patient self-testing, or PST) provides an opportunity to optimize warfarin therapy as demonstrated in randomized trials. This study sought to determine the quality of warfarin therapy as determined by time in therapeutic INR range (TTR) in patients who perform home monitoring(More)
Selection decisions in genomic selection schemes are made based on genomic breeding values (GBV) of candidates. Thus, the accuracy of GBV is a relevant parameter, as it reflects the stability of prediction and the possibility that the GBV might change when more information becomes available. Accuracy of genomic prediction defined as the correlation between(More)
Over the last decades, several genetic disorders have been discovered in cattle. However, the genetic background of disorders in calves is less reported. Recently, German cattle farmers reported on calves from specific matings with chronic diarrhea and retarded growth of unknown etiology. Affected calves did not respond to any medical treatment and died(More)
A psoralen-conjugated oligodeoxyribopyrimidine (1443), PS-pTTTTCTTTTCTTCTT, where PS is trimethylpsoralen and C is 5-methyl-2'-deoxycytidine, that contains alternating methylphosphonate-phosphodiester internucleotide linkages was synthesized. The ability of 1443 to form triple-stranded complexes with a purine tract in a synthetic DNA duplex was studied.(More)
Oligodeoxyribonucleotides containing thymidine and 8-oxo-2'-deoxyadenosine can form pyr.pur.pyr type triplexes with double-stranded DNA. Unlike triplexes whose third strands contain thymidine and deoxycytidine, the stability of these triplexes is independent of pH. We have prepared d-ps-TAAATAAATTTTTAT-L [I(A)], where A is 8-oxo-2'-deoxyadenosine, ps is(More)
Antisense oligonucleoside methylphosphonates complementary to the 12 nucleotides found at the intron/exon junction of the splice acceptor site of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) immediate early mRNAs 4 and 5 were synthesized. The methylphosphonate oligomers contained either 2'-deoxyribose nucleosides, d-OMPs, or 2'O-methylribose nucleosides, mr-OMPs. At(More)
