Knowledge of the structure of gene expression is essential for mammalian transcriptomics research. We analyzed a collection of more than one million porcine expressed sequence tags (ESTs), of which two-thirds were generated in the Sino-Danish Pig Genome Project and one-third are from public databases. The Sino-Danish ESTs were generated from one normalized(More)
Transgenic plants represent an alternative to cell culture systems for producing cheap and safe antibodies for diagnostic and therapeutic use. To evaluate the functional properties of a ‘plantibody’, we generated transgenic Arabidopsis plants expressing full-length human IgG1 against the Rhesus D antigen, which is responsible for alloimmunization of RhD–(More)
The effects of different plant life-forms, including a bunch grass species, Andropogon virginicus L. (broomsedge), and a sprouting deciduous tree species, Liquidambar styraciflua L. (sweetgum), on soil moisture and competitive responses of a transplanted coniferous tree seedling, Pinus taeda L. (loblolly pine), were investigated. Addition of the bunch grass(More)
BACKGROUND Natural products are an important source of drugs and other commercially interesting compounds, however their isolation and production is often difficult. Metabolic engineering, mainly in bacteria and yeast, has sought to circumvent some of the associated problems but also this approach is impeded by technical limitations. Here we describe a(More)
MOTIVATION Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) analysis is an important means to study genetic variation. A fast and cost-efficient approach to identify large numbers of novel candidates is the SNP mining of large scale sequencing projects. The increasing availability of sequence trace data in public repositories makes it feasible to evaluate SNP(More)
Tannin and total phenolic levels in the foliage of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) were examined in order to evaluate the effect of atmospheric pollution on secondary plant metabolism. The trees were exposed to four ozone concentrations and three levels of simulated acid rain. Tannin concentration (quantity per gram) and content (quantity per fascicle) were(More)
BACKGROUND A specific treatment for ongoing hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn (HDFN) due to anti-D would be very attractive. One approach could be administration to the mother of nonhemolytic anti-D, which by crossing the placenta can block the binding of hemolytic maternal anti-D. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS Two anti-D immunoglobulin G3 (IgG3)(More)
BACKGROUND The use of anti-D purified from human serum to prevent hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn due to D is well established. Owing to supply and safety reasons, however, an unlimited and non-plasma-derived source of antibodies for Rhesus prophylaxis is needed. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS Recombinant human immunoglobulin G (IgG)1, IgG2, IgG3,(More)
