The functional complexity of the human transcriptome is not yet fully elucidated. We report a high-throughput sequence of the human transcriptome from a human embryonic kidney and a B cell line. We used shotgun sequencing of transcripts to generate randomly distributed reads. Of these, 50% mapped to unique genomic locations, of which 80% corresponded to(More)
BACKGROUND Cancer re-sequencing programs rely on DNA isolated from fresh snap frozen tissues, the preparation of which is combined with additional preservation efforts. Tissue samples at pathology departments are routinely stored as formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples and their use would open up access to a variety of clinical trials.(More)
The Human Genome Project stimulated the development of efficient strategies and relevant hardware for complete genome sequencing. The comparative genomic approach extends the possibilities of using the sequencing data to identify new genes or conserved regulatory regions by means of nucleotide sequence alignment of the particular regions of the mouse and(More)
The frequencies of three alleles, CCR5delta32, CCR2-64I, and SDF1 3'A, known to decrease the risk of AIDS onset and the rate of the disease progression in HIV-infected individuals were determined in three native population samples from Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus. The frequencies of the alleles were 0.15, 0.12, 0.21; 0.12, 0.07, 0.20; and 0.12, 0.08, 0.26(More)
Free-radical-mediated processes are involved in a variety of physiological events, while oxidative stress and related redox deregulation are implicated in various pathological events. Tripeptide glutathione plays an important role in the antioxidant defense of the brain, particularly in the maintenance of the optimal redox state in neurons and glial cells.(More)
