DXS7423 and DXS8377 are two microsatellite markers located in the q28 band of chromosome X. We developed a protocol to amplify both markers in a single reaction, sequenced the most common alleles and studied allele frequencies in a Spanish population sample. DXS7423 allele variability was due to different numbers of (TCCA) repeats and five different alleles(More)
A new method has been optimised to amplify five X chromosome short tandem repeat (STR) markers of interest in forensic medicine: human phosphoribosyl transferase (HPRTB), DXS101, androgen receptor (ARA), DXS7423 and DXS8377. Markers were conveniently amplified in a single PCR reaction with fluorochrome-labelled primers, which allowed the analysis of(More)
OBJECTIVES To analyze the effect of the MCT1 T1470A polymorphism (rs1049434) on venous blood lactate levels in men and women, during three different circuit weight training protocols. DESIGN Cross-sectional laboratory study. METHODS 14 women and 15 men, all caucasian and moderately active, performed three circuit training sessions (Weight Machine(More)
This report describes a three-generation family with a severe phenotype of long-QT syndrome-1 (LQTS-1) caused by a single nucleotide mutation in the KQT-like, voltage-gated potassium channel-1 gene (KCNQ1; MIM 607542). Two members of the family died suddenly in their childhood, and all eight surviving members with prolonged QT have a heterozygous missense(More)
We assessed the role of monocarboxylate transporter 1 (MCT1) on lactate clearance during an active recovery after high-intensity exercise, by comparing genetic groups based on the T1470A (rs1049434) MCT1 polymorphism, whose influence on lactate transport has been proven. Sixteen young male elite field hockey players participated in this study. All of them(More)
The β-2 and β-3 adrenergic receptors (ADRB2 and ADRB3) are thought to play a role in energy expenditure and lipolysis. However, the effects of the ADRB2 glutamine (Gln) 27 glutamic acid (glutamate) (Glu) and ADRB3 tryptophan (Trp) 64 arginine (Arg) polymorphisms on weight loss remain controversial. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of(More)
