The branched DNA hybridization assay has been improved by the inclusion of the novel nucleotides, isoC and isoG, in the amplification sequences to prevent non-specific hybridization. The novel isoC, isoG-containing amplification sequences have no detectable interaction with any natural DNA sequence. The control of non-specific hybridization in turn permits(More)
We have measured parity-violating asymmetries in elastic electron-proton scattering over the range of momentum transfers 0.12 < or =Q2 < or =1.0 GeV2. These asymmetries, arising from interference of the electromagnetic and neutral weak interactions, are sensitive to strange-quark contributions to the currents of the proton. The measurements were made at(More)
Pyrimidine oligonucleotides containing alternating anionic and stereo-uniform cationic N-(dimethylamino-propyl)phosphoramidate linkages [e.g. d(T+T-)7T, d(T+T-)2(T+C-)5T and (U'+U'-)7dT, where U' is 2'-O-methyluridine)] are shown to bind to complementary double-stranded DNA segments in 0.1 M NaCl at pH 7 to form triple-stranded complexes with the(More)
We present deeply virtual π^{0} electroproduction cross-section measurements at x_{B}=0.36 and three different Q^{2} values ranging from 1.5 to 2  GeV^{2}, obtained from Jefferson Lab Hall A experiment E07-007. The Rosenbluth technique is used to separate the longitudinal and transverse responses. Results demonstrate that the cross section is dominated by(More)

We have measured parity violating asymmetries in elastic electron-proton and quasi-elastic electron-deuteron scattering at backward electron angle. These measurements have been done at two momentum transfers : Q 2 = 0.22 and 0.63 (GeV/c) 2. Together with our previous forward angle measurement [1], we can extract strange quark contributions to the(More)
Inclusive scattering from nuclei at x > 1 is sensitive to the distribution of high momentum nucleons at low Q 2 values, and high momentum quarks at large Q 2 values. Large x data at 4 and 6 GeV are dominated by quasielastic and resonance production from high-momentum nucleons. With the 11 GeV beam, we propose to make measurements in the DIS region and(More)
Wide-angle exclusive Compton scattering and single-pion photoproduction from the proton have been investigated via measurement of the polarization transfer from a circularly polarized photon beam to the recoil proton. The wide-angle Compton scattering polarization transfer was analyzed at an incident photon energy of 3.7 GeV at a proton scattering angle of(More)
The study of exclusive π(±) electroproduction on the nucleon, including separation of the various structure functions, is of interest for a number of reasons. The ratio RL=σL(π-)/σL(π+) is sensitive to isoscalar contamination to the dominant isovector pion exchange amplitude, which is the basis for the determination of the charged pion form factor from(More)
