A new and highly effective method, termed suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH), has been developed for the generation of subtracted cDNA libraries. It is based primarily on a recently described technique called suppression PCR and combines normalization and subtraction in a single procedure. The normalization step equalizes the abundance of cDNAs(More)
Isolation and mapping of a mouse complementary DNA sequence (mouse Y-finger) encoding a multiple, potential zinc-binding, finger protein homologous to the candidate human testis-determining factor gene is reported. Four similar sequences were identified in Hind III-digested mouse genomic DNA. Two (7.2 and 2.0 kb) were mapped to the Y chromosome. Only the(More)
A recombinant DNA probe was used for antenatal sex determination. The probe was isolated from the 3.4 kilobase human repeat sequence derived from heterochromatin of the Y chromosome and had 1000 times more affinity for male DNA than for female DNA. A dot blot hybridisation method with 200 microliter of amniotic fluid yielded accurate results in 2 to 3 days.(More)
Previous studies with chromosome-Y consomic strains of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and Wistar-Kyoto rats suggest that a quantitative trait locus for blood pressure regulation exists on chromosome Y. To test this hypothesis in the SHR-Brown Norway (BN) model and to study the effects of chromosome Y on lipid and carbohydrate metabolism, we produced(More)
