Mutations within the ovarian tumor (otu) gene result in abnormal ovarian development. It has been proposed that otu phenotypes result from abnormal germ cell division and differentiation. To understand better what role otu performs in oogenesis we have undertaken an analysis of protein expression from the otu locus. Anti-otu antibodies recognize two(More)
Sequencing cDNA and genomic DNA from the ovarian tumor gene revealed a gene with seven introns spanning 4.5 kilobases. The proline-rich, hydrophilic otu protein is novel. An antibody prepared to a beta-gal-otu fusion protein recognized a 110-kilodalton ovarian protein which was altered in the ovaries of otu gene mutants.
This investigation was conducted to determine whether primary herpetic gingivostomatitis may be responsible for those signs and symptoms commonly attributed to teething in infants. Twenty infants presenting with a parental diagnosis which indicated teething difficulty were included in this study (Group A). Twenty infants who were in no distress served as(More)
Mutations of the Drosophila melanogaster suppressor of sable [su(s)] gene, which encodes a 150-kDa nuclear protein [Su(s)], increase the accumulation of specific transcripts in a manner that is not well understood but that appears to involve pre-mRNA processing. Here, we report biochemical analysis of purified, recombinant Su(s) [rSu(s)] expressed in(More)
Poly(2-hydroxyethyl acrylate) (PHEA) is an interesting biomaterial with similar biocompatibility as the widespread used poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate). Poly(2-hydroxypropyl acrylate) (PHPA) is a less frequently studied polymer that exhibits thermoresponsive behavior in water. Therefore, copolymers of HEA and HPA are interesting thermoresponsive polymers(More)
