We describe a chromosome-band-specific painting method that involves (1) microdissection of the chromosome, chromosomal region or band, (2) amplification of a variety of chromosome/region/band-specific DNA fragments with the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and (3) chromosome in situ suppression hybridization (CISS) with the direct use of the PCR products(More)
In case of poisoning by herbicide compounded with Propanil (DCPA) and Carbaryl (NAC), we attempted simultaneous solid-phase extractions of DCPA, NAC, and 3,4-dichloroaniline (DCA), a metabolite of DCPA, from the patient's serum, and quantitative analytical method using HPLC-UV detection. With this HPLC method, the quantitative detection limits in the serum(More)
SummaryWe previously constructed a chromosome 2q-specific genomic library and isolated a number of microclones. In the present study, we first analyzed with Southern hybridization whether any of the microclones represent restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) and then tried to map RFLP markers physically, using the recently developed chromosome(More)
SummaryA 5-year-old boy with multiple congenital anomalies showed a satellited long-arm chromosome 9, a previously undescribed abnormality. Various banding analyses of his chromosomes and those of his parents indicated that a reciprocal translocation, t(9;22)(q34.3;q11.21), occurred in the father's gonad, and one of the translocation chromosomes was then(More)
SummaryWe describe methods for extracting genomic DNA from a small amount of whole blood or cultured amniocytes. Nuclear DNA was extracted from whole blood spotted on blotting paper. Relatively large molecules of DNA with the average amount of 7–9 μg was extracted from 1 ml of blood spotted and stored for at most two years, being roughly 1/3 of that(More)
Despite recent advances in the carbonization of organic crystalline solids like metal-organic frameworks or supramolecular frameworks, it has been challenging to convert crystalline organic solids into ordered carbonaceous frameworks. Herein, we report a route to attaining such ordered frameworks via the carbonization of an organic crystal of a(More)
We retrospectively analyzed the clinical and laboratory features of 111 patients with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) who required hospitalization. Blood culture was positive in 22, and negative in 89 subjects. We compared positive and negative groups in terms of background, physical exam findings, laboratory data, radiographic data, severity, and(More)
Boron and nitrogen co-doped ordered microporous carbons with high surface areas are obtained by using NaY zeolite as a hard template and an ionic liquid, 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium tetracyanoborate (EMIT), as a BN source. An acetylene-gas supply during a pyrolysis is effective to avoid the unfavourable reaction of zeolite and EMIT.
