The high degree of polymorphism displayed by DNA microsatellites makes them useful as DNA markers in linkage studies. A search of the DNA sequence databases revealed that the locations of dinucleotide microsatellites are often conserved among mammalian species, enabling the prediction of the presence of DNA microsatellites using comparative genetic data.

The presence or absence of horns in Bos taurus is thought to be under the genetic control of the autosomal polled locus, characterized by two alleles: P dominant over p, and causing the polled or hornless phenotype. We have demonstrated genetic linkage between the polled locus and two microsatellite markers, GMPOLL-1 and GMPOLL-2, and have assigned the(More)
An investigation was carried out in the New York City Watershed for the presence of selected pharmaceuticals. In four seasonal sampling events between August 2003 and May 2004, surface water was collected from eight reservoir keypoints and effluent was collected from four wastewater treatment plants. We evaluated the following twelve compounds: amoxicillin,(More)
A highly sensitive and selective method that requires minimal sample preparation was developed for the confirmation and quantitation of cyclamate in a variety of foods by high-performance liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC/MS/MS). Sample preparation consisted of homogenization followed by extraction and dilution of cyclamate with water.(More)
Concentrations of 12 metals (As, Be, Cd, Cr, Pb, Mo, Ni, Tl, Th, U, V, Hg) were determined in samples of fish and lobster obtained from various stores and markets in New York State. The seafood samples were chosen based on their popularity as a food source and the potential of the species to contain high levels of mercury based on past research results. A(More)
In 1952 Robert Briggs and Thomas J. King [5] published their article, ?Transplantation of Living Nuclei from Blastula Cells into Enucleated Frogs? Eggs,? in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences [6], the culmination of a series of experiments conducted at the Institute for Cancer Research [7] and Lankenau Hospital Research Institute [8] in(More)
King was born on 4 June 1921 in New York City, New York. When his mother died in childbirth, an aunt raised King in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey. He studied at Fordham University [11] in Bronx, New York, where he earned his BS in 1943. Following graduation, King served as a US Army instructor in the Army Medical Technicians School [12] at the Lawson General(More)
