On the chromosome of Staphylococcus epidermidis RP62A the lipase gene (gehSE1) is immediately flanked by the icaAA'BC operon, which is involved in biofilm formation. Since lipase production might play a role in staphylococcal skin colonisation as well, we studied the biochemical properties of the staphylococcal lipases more closely. The DNA sequence and the(More)
Internal tandem duplication (ITD) of the fms-related tyrosine kinase 3 (FLT3) gene is associated with a poor prognosis in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients with a normal karyotype. The current standard polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay for FLT3/ITD detection is not sufficiently sensitive to monitor minimal residual disease (MRD). Clone-specific(More)
