Imperfect inverted repeats or quasipalindromes can undergo spontaneous, often complex mutational events that correct them to perfect palindromes. Two models that depend on the quasipalindrome providing a template for a specific mutational event have been described to explain this mutation: an intramolecular and an intermolecular strand switch model. A 17bp(More)
When present in single-stranded DNA, palindromic or quasi-palindromic sequences have the potential to form complex secondary structures, including hairpins, which may facilitate interstrand misalignment of direct repeats and be responsible for diverse types of replication-based mutations, including deletions, additions, frameshifts and duplications.

This paper presents application of a computational model for the dissolution of alumina inclusion in molten slag for steelmaking. The slag systems used in the present research was similar to those containing CaO-SiO2-Al2O3 which have applications in practice. The model was counted on some assumptions such as inclusion was initially 100% of alumina, activity(More)
The frequencies of deletion of short sequences (mutation inserts) inserted into the chloramphenicol acetyl-transferase (CAT) gene were measured for pBR325 and pBR523, in which the orientation of the CAT gene was reversed, in Escherichia coli. Reversal of the CAT gene changes the relationship between the transcribed strand and the leading and lagging strands(More)
We describe a system to measure the frequency of both deletions and duplications between direct repeats. Short 17- and 18-bp palindromic and nonpalindromic DNA sequences were cloned into the EcoRI site within the chloramphenicol acetyltransferase gene of plasmids pBR325 and pJT7. This creates an insert between direct repeated EcoRI sites and results in a(More)
