They may also be the result of acquired mitochondria dysfunction due to adverse effects of drugs, infections, or other environmental causes.
Proteins found in any species of virus.
In bacteria, a group of metabolically related genes, with a common promoter, whose transcription into a single polycistronic MESSENGER RNA is under the control of an OPERATOR REGION.
The presence of apparently similar characters for which the genetic evidence indicates that different genes or different genetic mechanisms are involved in different pedigrees. In clinical settings genetic heterogeneity refers to the presence of a variety of genetic defects which cause the same disease, often due to mutations at different loci on the same gene, a finding common to many human diseases including ALZHEIMER DISEASE; CYSTIC FIBROSIS; LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE DEFICIENCY, FAMILIAL; and POLYCYSTIC KIDNEY DISEASES. (Rieger, et al., Glossary of Genetics: Classical and Molecular, 5th ed; Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
A broad category of carrier proteins that play a role in SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION. They generally contain several modular domains, each of which having its own binding activity, and act by forming complexes with other intracellular-signaling molecules. Signal-transducing adaptor proteins lack enzyme activity, however their activity can be modulated by other signal-transducing enzymes
A cell line derived from cultured tumor cells.
Genes which regulate or circumscribe the activity of other genes; specifically, genes which code for PROTEINS or RNAs which have GENE EXPRESSION REGULATION functions.
The ability of a protein to retain its structural conformation or its activity when subjected to physical or chemical manipulations.
The relationships of groups of organisms as reflected by their genetic makeup.
A group of muscle diseases associated with abnormal mitochondria function.
Individuals whose ancestral origins are in the southeastern and eastern areas of the Asian continent.
A polynucleotide consisting essentially of chains with a repeating backbone of phosphate and ribose units to which nitrogenous bases are attached. RNA is unique among biological macromolecules in that it can encode genetic information, serve as an abundant structural component of cells, and also possesses catalytic activity. (Rieger et al., Glossary of Genetics: Classical and Molecular, 5th ed)
Proteins whose abnormal expression (gain or loss) are associated with the development, growth, or progression of NEOPLASMS. Some neoplasm proteins are tumor antigens (ANTIGENS, NEOPLASM), i.e. they induce an immune reaction to their tumor. Many neoplasm proteins have been characterized and are used as tumor markers (BIOMARKERS, TUMOR) when they are detectable in cells and body fluids as monitors for the presence or growth of tumors. Abnormal expression of ONCOGENE PROTEINS is involved in neoplastic transformation, whereas the loss of expression of TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEINS is involved with the loss of growth control and progression of the neoplasm.
A group of enzymes that catalyzes the phosphorylation of serine or threonine residues in proteins, with ATP or other nucleotides as phosphate donors.
Ribonucleic acid that makes up the genetic material of viruses.
A hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy transmitted most often as an autosomal dominant trait and characterized by progressive distal wasting and loss of reflexes in the muscles of the legs (and occasionally involving the arms). Onset is usually in the second to fourth decade of life. This condition has been divided into two subtypes, hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy (HMSN) types I and II. HMSN I is associated with abnormal nerve conduction velocities and nerve hypertrophy, features not seen in HMSN II. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1343)
The occurrence in an individual of two or more cell populations of different chromosomal constitutions, derived from a single ZYGOTE, as opposed to CHIMERISM in which the different cell populations are derived from more than one zygote.
A characteristic feature of enzyme activity in relation to the kind of substrate on which the enzyme or catalytic molecule reacts.

Over-representation of a germline RET sequence variant in patients with sporadic medullary thyroid carcinoma and somatic RET codon 918 mutation. (1/13935)

The aetiology of sporadic medullary thyroid carcinoma is unknown. About 50% harbour a somatic mutation at codon 918 of RET (M918T). To investigate whether other RET sequence variants may be associated with or predispose to the development of sporadic medullary thyroid carcinoma, we analysed genomic DNA from the germline and corresponding tumour from 50 patients to identify RET sequence variants. In one patient, tumour DNA showed a novel somatic 12 bp in-frame deletion in exon 15. More interestingly, we found that the rare polymorphism at codon 836 (c.2439C > T; S836S) occurred at a significantly higher frequency than that in control individuals without sporadic medullary thyroid carcinoma (Fisher's exact test, P = 0.03). Further, among the nine evaluable cases with germline c.2439C/T, eight also had the somatic M918T mutation in MTC DNA which was more frequent than in patients with the more common c.2439C/C (89% vs 40%, respectively; Fisher's exact test, P = 0.01). These findings suggest that the rare sequence variant at codon 836 may somehow play a role in the genesis of sporadic medullary thyroid carcinoma.  (+info)

Cooperative binding of heat shock factor to the yeast HSP82 promoter in vivo and in vitro. (2/13935)

Previous work has shown that heat shock factor (HSF) plays a central role in remodeling the chromatin structure of the yeast HSP82 promoter via constitutive interactions with its high-affinity binding site, heat shock element 1 (HSE1). The HSF-HSE1 interaction is also critical for stimulating both basal (noninduced) and induced transcription. By contrast, the function of the adjacent, inducibly occupied HSE2 and -3 is unknown. In this study, we examined the consequences of mutations in HSE1, HSE2, and HSE3 on HSF binding and transactivation. We provide evidence that in vivo, HSF binds to these three sites cooperatively. This cooperativity is seen both before and after heat shock, is required for full inducibility, and can be recapitulated in vitro on both linear and supercoiled templates. Quantitative in vitro footprinting reveals that occupancy of HSE2 and -3 by Saccharomyces cerevisiae HSF (ScHSF) is enhanced approximately 100-fold through cooperative interactions with the HSF-HSE1 complex. HSE1 point mutants, whose basal transcription is virtually abolished, are functionally compensated by cooperative interactions with HSE2 and -3 following heat shock, resulting in robust inducibility. Using a competition binding assay, we show that the affinity of recombinant HSF for the full-length HSP82 promoter is reduced nearly an order of magnitude by a single-point mutation within HSE1, paralleling the effect of these mutations on noninduced transcript levels. We propose that the remodeled chromatin phenotype previously shown for HSE1 point mutants (and lost in HSE1 deletion mutants) stems from the retention of productive, cooperative interactions between HSF and its target binding sites.  (+info)

The alphaE-catenin gene (CTNNA1) acts as an invasion-suppressor gene in human colon cancer cells. (3/13935)

The acquisition of invasiveness is a crucial step in the malignant progression of cancer. In cancers of the colon and of other organs the E-cadherin/catenin complex, which is implicated in homotypic cell-cell adhesion as well as in signal transduction, serves as a powerful inhibitor of invasion. We show here that one allele of the alphaE-catenin (CTNNA1) gene is mutated in the human colon cancer cell family HCT-8, which is identical to HCT-15, DLD-1 and HRT-18. Genetic instability, due to mutations in the HMSH6 (also called GTBP) mismatch repair gene, results in the spontaneous occurrence of invasive variants, all carrying either a mutation or exon skipping in the second alphaE-catenin allele. The alphaE-catenin gene is therefore, an invasion-suppressor gene in accordance with the two-hit model of Knudsen for tumour-suppressor genes.  (+info)

Correlation between the status of the p53 gene and survival in patients with stage I non-small cell lung carcinoma. (4/13935)

The association of p53 abnormalities with the prognosis of patients with non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) has been extensively investigated to date, however, this association is still controversial. Therefore, we investigated the prognostic significance of p53 mutations through exons 2 to 11 and p53 protein expression in 103 cases of stage I NSCLC. p53 mutations were detected in 49 of 103 (48%) tumors. Two separate mutations were detected in four tumors giving a total of 53 unique mutations in 49 tumors. Ten (19%) of mutations occurred outside exons 5-8. Positive immunohistochemical staining of p53 protein was detected in 41 of 103 (40%) tumors. The concordance rate between mutations and protein overexpression was only 69%. p53 mutations, but not expression, were significantly associated with a shortened survival of patients (P<0.001). Furthermore, we investigated the correlation between the types of p53 mutations and prognosis. p53 missense mutations rather than null mutations were associated with poor prognosis (P < 0.001 in missense mutations and P=0.243 in null mutations). These results indicated that p53 mutations, in particular missense mutations, rather than p53 expression could be a useful molecular marker for the prognosis of patients with surgically resected stage I NSCLC.  (+info)

p73 at chromosome 1p36.3 is lost in advanced stage neuroblastoma but its mutation is infrequent. (5/13935)

p73, a novel p53 family member, is a recently identified candidate neuroblastoma (NBL) suppressor gene mapped at chromosome 1p36.33 and was found to inhibit growth and induce apoptosis in cell lines. To test the hypothesis that p73 is a NBL suppressor gene, we analysed the p73 gene in primary human NBLs. Loss of heterozygosity (LOH) for p73 was observed in 19% (28/151) of informative cases which included 92 mass-screening (MS) tumors. The high frequency of p73 LOH was significantly associated with sporadic NBLs (9% vs 34%, P<0.001), N-myc amplification (10% vs 71%, P<0.001), and advanced stage (14% vs 28%, P<0.05). Both p73alpha and p73beta transcripts were detectable in only 46 of 134 (34%) NBLs at low levels by RT-PCR methods, while they were easily detectable in most breast cancers and colorectal cancers under the same conditions. They found no correlation between p73 LOH and its expression levels (P>0.1). We found two mutations out of 140 NBLs, one somatic and one germline, which result in amino acid substitutions in the C-terminal region of p73 which may affect transactivation functions, though, in the same tumor samples, no mutation of the p53 gene was observed as reported previously. These results suggest that allelic loss of the p73 gene may be a later event in NBL tumorigenesis. However, p73 is infrequently mutated in primary NBLs and may hardly function as a tumor suppressor in a classic Knudson's manner.  (+info)

RNA binding by the novel helical domain of the influenza virus NS1 protein requires its dimer structure and a small number of specific basic amino acids. (6/13935)

The RNA-binding/dimerization domain of the NS1 protein of influenza A virus (73 amino acids in length) exhibits a novel dimeric six-helical fold. It is not known how this domain binds to its specific RNA targets, one of which is double-stranded RNA. To elucidate the mode of RNA binding, we introduced single alanine replacements into the NS1 RNA-binding domain at specific positions in the three-dimensional structure. Our results indicate that the dimer structure is essential for RNA binding, because any alanine replacement that causes disruption of the dimer also leads to the loss of RNA-binding activity. Surprisingly, the arginine side chain at position 38, which is in the second helix of each monomer, is the only amino-acid side chain that is absolutely required only for RNA binding and not for dimerization, indicating that this side chain probably interacts directly with the RNA target. This interaction is primarily electrostatic, because replacement of this arginine with lysine had no effect on RNA binding. A second basic amino acid, the lysine at position 41, which is also in helix 2, makes a strong contribution to the affinity of binding. We conclude that helix 2 and helix 2', which are antiparallel and next to each other in the dimer conformation, constitute the interaction face between the NS1 RNA-binding domain and its RNA targets, and that the arginine side chain at position 38 and possibly the lysine side chain at position 41 in each of these antiparallel helices contact the phosphate backbone of the RNA target.  (+info)

A concise promoter region of the heart fatty acid-binding protein gene dictates tissue-appropriate expression. (7/13935)

The heart fatty acid-binding protein (HFABP) is a member of a family of binding proteins with distinct tissue distributions and diverse roles in fatty acid metabolism, trafficking, and signaling. Other members of this family have been shown to possess concise promoter regions that direct appropriate tissue-specific expression. The basis for the specific expression of the HFABP has not been previously evaluated, and the mechanisms governing expression of metabolic genes in the heart are not completely understood. We used transient and permanent transfections in ventricular myocytes, skeletal myocytes, and nonmyocytic cells to map regulatory elements in the HFABP promoter, and audited results in transgenic mice. Appropriate tissue-specific expression in cell culture and in transgenic mice was dictated by 1.2 kb of the 5'-flanking sequence of FABP3, the HFABP gene. Comparison of orthologous murine and human genomic sequences demonstrated multiple regions of near-identity within this promoter region, including a CArG-like element close to the TATA box. Binding and transactivation studies demonstrated that this element can function as an atypical myocyte enhancer-binding factor 2 site. Interactions with adjacent sites are likely to be necessary for fully appropriate, tissue-specific, developmental and metabolic regulation.  (+info)

The DNA binding activity of Translin is mediated by a basic region in the ring-shaped structure conserved in evolution. (8/13935)

DNA binding proteins, for the most part, function as dimers or tetramers which recognize their target sequences. Here we show that Translin, a novel single-stranded DNA end binding protein, forms a ring-shaped structure conserved throughout evolution and that this structure is responsible for its DNA binding activity. Point mutations at Leu184 and Leu191 in the leucine zipper motif of human Translin resulted in loss of the multimeric structure and abrogation of DNA binding. Point mutations at R86, H88, H90 to T86, N88, N90 in one of the basic regions, however, completely inhibited the DNA binding activity without affecting the multimeric structure. These results support the view that the DNA binding domain of Translin is formed in the ring-shaped structure in combination with its basic region (amino acids 86-97) polypeptides.  (+info)

Viral evolution is a common phenomenon. Among other factors that marks how a virus evolves is what is known as point mutation. A point mutation can either be in a specific location of the DNA or it can give rise to the change in a specific position of a critical viral protein. A change of a single base in the DNA or a single amino acid of a protein - the hallmark of point mutation - can bring in huge change in terms of physiology, infectivity and severity of a microorganism, and for that matter, in any organism. As a result of such point mutations, different strains of a virus evolve.. SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that caused the COVID-19 pandemic with devastating consequences, also has undergone such point mutation and hence different strains have emerged. A Cell publication has revealed the viral strain that possibly emerged during April 2020 and has now has become the dominant viral form worldwide. The strain, named D614G, is different from the original one found in Wuhan, China and is more ...
Several decades have passed since oncogenic RAS was first identified as the transforming factor in the Harvey and Kirsten strains of the Mouse Sarcoma Virus (1, 3-5). Since these discoveries, all three RAS family genes (KRAS, NRAS, and HRAS) have been shown to be somatically mutated in human cancer, most commonly as a result of single point mutations at codons 12, 13, and 61.. Despite overwhelming evidence that oncogenic RAS plays a central role in mediating transformation in human tumors, only recently has limited testing for somatic RAS mutations entered routine clinical practice. Widespread adoption of mutational profiling in the clinic has been delayed for several reasons. First, before recent advances in sequencing technology, RAS mutational testing was expensive and time intensive. Second, until recently, there was no definitive evidence that routine testing for RAS mutations would meaningfully affect clinical practice. This changed with the identification of KRAS mutations as a predictor ...
Study Rationale: Mutations in the GBA gene are the most common genetic cause of Parkinson s disease. This gene has a nearby pseudogene, which is a genetic material that is very similar to the original gene but does not encode a protein. Because of the presence of the pseudogene, it is often difficult to identify mutations in the gene using traditional mutation detection techniques. Furthermore, specific mutations that occur as a result of a recombination between the gene and the pseudogene are often missed by the traditional genetic methods.. Hypothesis:. By using a novel technology called targeted locus amplification (TLA) we hypothesize that we will be able to better discriminate between the gene and its pseudogene, and to identify specific recombinations between GBA and its pseudogene.. Study Design:. First, we will design the TLA methods to match the target gene, GBA, and its pseudogene, and examine if it works using random DNA samples. Then, we will examine if the method works by using DNA ...
Pyrosequencing Allele Quantification (AQ) is a cost-effective DNA sequencing method that can be used for detecting somatic mutations in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples. The method displays a low turnaround time and a high sensitivity. Pyrosequencing suffers however from two main drawbacks including (i) low specificity and (ii) difficult signal interpretation when multiple mutations are reported in a hotspot genomic region. Using a constraint-based regression method, the new AdvISER-PYRO-SMQ algorithm was developed in the current study and implemented into an R package. As a proof-of-concept, AdvISER-PYRO-SMQ was used to identify a set of 9 distinct point mutations affecting codon 61 of the NRAS oncogene. In parallel, a pyrosequencing assay using the Qiagen software and its AQ module was used to assess selectively the presence of a single point mutation (NRAS $$c.182A|G$$
Joseph Bozorgmehr also notes that [i]n many instances...a loss of function and regulation in a harsh or unusual environment can have a beneficial outcome and thus be selected for-bacteria tend to evolve resistance to antibiotics in such a way through mutations that would otherwise adversely affect membrane permeability.20. Parasites. Humans have been battling malaria for thousands of years. The advent of modern medicine provided us with a weapon to finally beat this ravaging parasite once and for all. Or so we thought. Unfortunately for us, malaria has been able to develop immunity to every drug weve thrown at it. For example, malaria quickly developed resistance to Atovaquone. All that was required to circumvent the effectiveness of this drug was a single point mutation at position 268 in a single malarial gene. The odds of developing this particular mutation are one in a trillion (1012). While those odds would be difficult to overcome for most organisms (such as human beings or beetles), ...

Mendels Accountant User Manual: Maximal beneficial mutation effects A realistic upper limit must be placed upon beneficial mutations. This is because a single nucleotide change can expand total biological functionality of an organism only to a limited degree. The larger the genome and the greater the total genomic information, the less a single nucleotide is likely to increase the total. Researchers must make a judgment for themselves of what is a reasonable maximal value for a single base change. The MENDEL default value for this limit is 0.001. This limit implies that a single point mutation can increase total biological functionality by as much as 0.1%. In a genome such as man s, assuming only 10% of the genome is functional, such a maximal impact point mutation might be viewed as equivalent to adding 300,000 new information-bearing base pairs each of which had the genome-wide average fitness contribution. Researchers need to honestly define the upper limit they feel is realistic for their ...
a-Galactosidase AgaB from Bacillus stearothermophilus displays a major a(1~6) and a minor a(1~3) regioselectivity in hydrolysis and transglycosylation. Its corresponding gene, agaB, was subjected to saturation mutagenesis at codon 442 in order to change its regioselectivity. The mutant genes were cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli using pBTac2 as vector. The regioselective activity of the mutants was determined using thin layer chromatography and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. A single point mutation, G442R, resulted in a mutant displaying an a(1~2) regioselectivity. Other amino acid substitutions at this site also gave mutants with altered regioselectivity and transglycosylation profiles. This is the first demonstration that single point mutations can lead to a strong modification of the regioselectivity of a glycosyl hydrolase. The kinetic parameters of the enzyme variants were determined and a preliminary investigation of possible substrates for condensation reactions ...
The radial basis function-based high-dimensional model representation (RBF-HDMR) is very promising as a metamodel for high dimensional costly simulation-based functions. But in the modeling procedure, it requires well-structured regular points sampled on cut lines and planes. In practice, we usually have some existing random points that do not lie on cut lines or planes. For this case, RBF-HDMR cannot utilize the information of these random points because of its inner regular sampling process. To utilize the existing random points, this article presents two strategies to build a generalized RBF-HDMR (GRBF-HDMR) model. The GRBF-HDMR model using the error model (EM) strategy, called GRBF-HDMREM, constructs an error RBF model based on the prediction errors at all the sampled points to improve the RBF-HDMR predictions. While the GRBF-HDMR model using the error allocation (EA) strategy, called GRBF-HDMREA, employs the virtual regular points projected from the random points and the estimated virtual ...
It is very nice for you to answer my question so specific.. I think my work should be related with the first one. After reading your answer, I still have two questions about it.. 1. According to your answer, the mutations seen in both tumor and matched normal samples are usally germline, so I wonder, do the germline mutations, which can be detected from normal tissues of this patient, are eliminated from the somatic mutations, listed in that publication? (I guess if we check and search mutations in the tumor tissues of one patient, it is impossible to determine whether one mutation is belong to the somatic mutations or germline mutations, inherited from his parents. Unless we make the same analysis to the normal tissues of this patient and find the germline mutations of s/he, can we make sure which is somatic mutation and which is germline mutation.). 2. I just make sure Im clear about what you say. Most of the mutations for samples like TCGA-02-0047-11A-01D-1490-08 are belong to germline ...
Many approaches to the question have looked for statistical signatures of sequence under selective constraint. However, selection could, for example, be on the process of transcription not the product of transcription. A stronger, or perhaps complementary, approach is to start with a mechanistic hypothesis. If you know splice sites need exonic splice enhancer motifs to define them, then do these motifs impact on the evolution of the protein and gene sequence within which they are embedded [3]? As nucleosome location is important for gene expression, then does selection act on the DNA level to maintain proper positioning? Does this mean that a single point mutation can be disfavored for a minor disruption of function? We know that genes close together on chromosomes tend to be expressed together [4, 5]. Are genome rearrangements favored or disfavored then for bringing combinations together or breaking them up? How often will selection care about single point mutations within microRNA pairing ...
The horizontal axis represents time, and the vertical axis represents a percentage of the population. When a mutation enters the population, it occurs in only one individual and is plotted as a point somewhere on the x axis. If the mutation is passed on, for example to four new offspring, then it will be in a higher percentage of the population at the next time step. Most mutations will soon drop out of the population. Either the individual where the mutation originates will not survive, or if it does survive and mate, by chance it may not pass the mutation to its children. Even then the children may not pass the mutation any further. Mutations that eventually die out show up as inverted ``V shapes in the figure: they are introduced, they are passed on to some proportion of the population in the next few generations, and eventually the percentage drops to 0 as the mutation disappears. Some small percentage of new mutations are passed on successfully. If by chance the mutation continues to ...

In this study ARMS has been found to be both more sensitive and robust at detecting somatic mutations in clinical material than DNA sequencing. There were no examples where ARMS did not detect an assay-specific mutation that was detected by DNA sequencing. There were 42 mutations detected by ARMS that were not detected by DNA sequencing either due to low quantity or quality DNA causing assay fails or low mutant DNA compared to normal DNA in the sample that was beyond the detection limit of sequencing. They were not believed to be false positive results as they were known mutations, the results were reproducible and adequate controls were analysed in parallel. There were 12 mutations detected by sequencing that were not detected by ARMS because the ARMS assays used were not designed to detect these mutations, either because the mutations were rare (melanoma study) or ARMS assays had not yet been developed to detect these mutations. However, using the larger panel of ARMS assays now available the ...

LITTLE excuse is needed for still being interested in mutation. We are here thanks to the germline mutations experienced by our ancestors, and, at least in the developed nations of the world, more of us die from somatic mutations than from any other single cause. For the evolutionary biologist, the process of mutation presents no problems. For anyone attempting an overview of cancer research, however, the process has become increasingly obscure. It was this obscurity that prompted my laboratory in the 1980s to look again at the interplay between mutation and selection.. Germline mutation: To some extent, the particular mutational changes that generated the evolutionary tree can be deduced from comparisons of the differences in sequence that distinguish the different branches of the tree. It is not easy, however, to investigate what were the causes of those changes. Perhaps for that reason, it is customary to think of mutation as being driven by chance events attributable to the natural ...
Mutation matrices have been frequently used to describe measures of physicochemical similarities among amino acids. Dayhoff et al. initially introduced the use of the mutation matrix, which was constructed from the phylogenetic analysis of 71 proteins with at least 85% pairwise sequence identity [1]. They observed point mutations in the matrices resulting from both the mutation of the gene itself, and the subsequent acceptance of the mutation, possibly as a predominant form. Not all possible replacements for an amino acid are acceptable, and the group of acceptable mutations vary from one protein family to another [1]. The Dayhoff matrix still ranks among the widely-used scoring schemes for generating multiple alignments, although there have been several modifications, such as the use of a larger number of more divergent protein sequences, as well as the generation of separate log-odds matrices for soluble and non-soluble proteins [2].. It remains difficult, however, to evaluate the effects of ...
Mutations are often the victims of bad press unfairly stereotyped as unimportant or as a cause of genetic disease. While many mutations do indeed have small or negative effects, another sort of mutation gets less airtime. Mutations to control genes can have major (and sometimes positive) effects. Some regions of DNA control other genes, determining when and where other genes are turned on. Mutations in these parts of the genome can substantially change the way the organism is built. The difference between a mutation to a control gene and a mutation to a less powerful gene is a bit like the difference between whispering an instruction to the trumpet player in an orchestra versus whispering it to the orchestras conductor.

where. X1 is the x coordinate of new point. Y1 is the y coordinate of the new point. X is the x coordinate of the seed point. Y is the y coordinate of the seed point. The recurrence formula is the heart of this process. By changing these equations, you can begin to create new recursive point sets.. Running The Program. After youve entered the program (and made the appropriate changes if you use tape), RUN it. First youll be asked whether you want to create a new point set, or view a point set which you have saved on tape or disk. If you enter a two, and youre using a disk drive, type in the name of the picture file you wish to see. If you are using tape, push PLAY when the computer beeps.. Since you havent created any point sets yet, enter 1. The recurrence formula (lines 170-190) will be displayed. Type CONT and youll see the points created by the recurrence formula begin to appear on the screen along with their x and y coordinates. The points will continue to be plotted until you take one ...
A new study based on genetic testing of 150,000 people has found a rare mutation that protects even fat people from getting Type 2 diabetes. The effect is so pronounced - the mutation reduces risk by two-thirds - that it provides a promising new target for developing a drug to mimic the mutations effect.. The mutation destroys a gene used by pancreas cells where insulin is made. Those with the mutation seem to make slightly more insulin and have slightly lower blood glucose levels for their entire lives.. Already Pfizer, which helped finance the study, and Amgen, which owns a company whose data played a key role in the research, are starting programs aimed at developing drugs that act like the mutation, the companies said.. But Timothy Rolph, a Pfizer vice president, cautioned it can take 10 to 20 years to get a drug to market after discovering something new about human genetics and disease.. The study, published Sunday in Nature Genetics, involved a mutation so rare that finding it was only ...

In the six families without detectable TP53germline mutation (fig 2), we then analysed theTP63 gene. To screen for inactivatingTP63 mutations, we performed a functional assay in yeast. Transformation of the pCI51 plasmid18containing the wild type coding region corresponding to the isoform γ of TP63 into the yIG397-RGC yeast reporter strain resulted in white colonies. Transformation of two mutant pCI51 plasmids (with the mutation Leu264Ser or Cys269Ser generated by PCR induced mutagenesis), used as controls, resulted only in red colonies. In four index cases, for whom mRNA was available, the TP63 cDNA was PCR amplified from lymphocytes between codons 18 and 434, cloned by homologous recombination into the gapped expression vector pCI51 linearised between codons 30 and 420, and transformed into yIG397-RGC; the percentage of red colonies (table 1) suggested the absence of heterozygous inactivating mutations. We also sequenced in the six families without detectable TP53 mutation exons 2 to 15 of ...

If the angle between the vectors $v_i$ and $v_j$ is denoted by $\theta_{ij}$, then using cosine rule we have $$\rho = 2 \min_{i,j \in\{1,2,\dots,m\}}\sin({\theta_{ij}}/{2})$$ Assuming that $m$ is a large number, then minimum will occur for a very small value of $\theta_{ij}$. Hence, $$\rho \approx \min_{i,j \in\{1,2,\dots,m\}} \theta_{ij}$$ Since the points are distributed uniformly, It is not difficult to find the distribution of $\theta_{ij}$ and then find the expectation and variance of $\rho$. This I guess will give a pretty good estimate of the actual value of expectation and variance of $\rho$.. ...
[Absence of point mutation in the third intracellular loop of alpha 1B- and alpha 1D adrenergic receptor in the aortae of spontaneously hypertensive rats].: Our
Because of mutations, the concept that all cells arising from a single cell are identical is not strictly true, since every large population contains mutants. Even the cells in a single colony that contains about 1 million cells are not completely identical because of random mutations. These mutations provide a mechanism by which organisms, with their altered characteristics, can respond to a changing environment. This is the process of natural selection. The environment, however, does not cause the mutation but rather selects those cells that can grow under its conditions. Thus, a spontaneous mutation to antimicrobial resistance, though rare, will result in the mutants becoming the dominant organisms in a hospital environment where the antimicrobial medication is present, because only the resistant cells can survive. The antimicrobial kills the sensitive cells and thereby allows the resistant cells to take over the population.. Since genes mutate independently of one another, the chance that ...

For position 29 only BLOSSUM62 says that this mutation is not likely. The 9 other sources show that this mutation wont have a damaging influence on the function or structure of the protein. This is perspicuous since the conservation of this position is not very high. The amino acid on position 125 is quite good conserved with 96%. SNAP and SIFT says that this mutation will have an influence on the protein whereas Polyphen2 says that this mutation is ether not (HumVar) or hardly damaging (HumDiv). Since this position is quite good conserved it is more likely that this mutation will have an influence on the function or structure of the protein. back to Maple_syrup_urine_disease main page go back to Task 5 Mapping SNPs ...

As discussed mutation observers would be best defined in the DOM. The DOM is discussed on [email protected]: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-dom/ (I bccd public-webapps just in case anyone missed this.)

The hooks related to tree mutations are defined here: http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/domcore/raw-file/tip/Overview.html#mutation-algorithms To illustrate: * appendChild(node) maps to the append algorithm, which invokes pre-insert, which eventually does insert. * setting textContent maps to the replace all algorithm, which invokes remove (for each child node) followed by a single append * setting innerHTML can be defined just like textContent, using a DocumentFragment for the nodes to be inserted Whether separate pre-insert and insert is really necessary depends on how we end up defining mutation observers.

In this rar are the contents of the hdd mutation sits on. It contains the current (non-functioning) source code as well as multiple source backups I had made throughout its development. The current source code is capable of importing tags from other projects, but when I last touched it I was in the middle of writing code to explode the sound_diagnostics tag at decompile time, and rebuilding it at compile time from the sound tags. So in its current state it will not work for anything, if it even compiles without errors. I would check the last source backup to see if it can import tags, since it could prove useful to some people. I would also like to say that this project is the result of many years of work, coding styles, and ideas. It is a mess and does not reflect my current coding ability.

Five tumors were found to harbor H-ras mutations where two tumors had a glycine to valine (G→T) change in codon 12 and three tumors had a glutamine to lysine (C→A) change in codon 61, respectively. Moreover, we could also detect the same point mutations of the H-ras gene in ...
Open for Enrollment. Mitochondrial and Mental Retardation: Investigations of Clinical Syndromes Associated with MtDNA Point Mutations. The Natural History Study is an ongoing study that involves participants that have point mutations in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). These mutations affect the genetic material contained in the mitochondria of the cell. Mitochondria, often called the powerhouse of the cell, are small structures within cells that provide the energy necessary to power growth and change over time. The purpose of this study is to better characterize mitochondrial disorders as they present over time in participants. Through this study we hope to determine whether mtDNA point mutations produce any measurable disturbances of thinking, attention, intelligence, behavior, or neurological functioning. Eligible participants must have a proven mitochondrial point mutation. Some or all participants may represent members of a single family because mtDNA point mutations are inherited from ones ...

In this study, we describe the clinical features and provide experimental analyses of a novel point mutation affecting the penultimate nucleotide of the first exon of the HBA2 (HBA2: c.94A,G) gene identified in a 26-year-old female who also carries a heterozygous Hb E (HBB: c.79G,A) variant. The aim of the study was to investigate the impact of this point mutation on the transcriptional activity of the HBA2 gene using a combination of an initial in silico prediction followed by in vitro mutagenesis and transcriptional activity assessment. The analyses revealed that the HBA2: c.94A,G point mutation causes the activation of a cryptic splice site located 49bp upstream of the exon1-intron1 boundary in both HBA2 long and short isoforms, thus generating a frameshift and a premature termination codon between codons 48 and 49 in the second exon. A rapid degradation of the aberrantly spliced transcripts by the nonsense mediated decay (NMD) surveillance system is highly indicative of an a-thalassemia ...

The insertionally activated transcripts encode protein products which have constitutive tyrosine kinase activity and can induce erythroleukemia but not sarcomas. We have previously found that a valine-to-isoleucine point mutation at position 157 (V157I mutant) within the tyrosine kinase domain of this truncated erbB can dramatically activate the sarcomagenic potential of the oncogene and increase the kinase activity of this oncoprotein. This mutation lies at position 157 of the insertionally activated ...

When populations of microorganisms are exposed to nonlethal selections, mutations that relieve the selective pressure arise (7), a phenomenon called adaptive mutation (6). Although it originally seemed that only useful mutations appeared (7), it is now clear that selected mutations are accompanied by nonselected mutations, i.e., the process is not directed to useful genes (12).. Most research on adaptive mutation has focused on a strain of Escherichia coli, called FC40, that cannot utilize lactose (Lac−) but that readily reverts to lactose utilization (Lac+) when lactose is its only carbon source (6). The process that produces adaptive Lac+ mutations is not the same as that which produces Lac+ mutations during normal growth. Unlike growth-dependent mutations, almost all adaptive Lac+ mutations are dependent on recombination functions (6, 10, 24). While several different types of sequence changes revert the Lac− allele during growth, adaptive Lac+ mutations are almost all −1-bp frameshifts ...
Genetic mutations have two major types: large mutation (deletion, insertion, duplication, and inversion) and point mutation (nonsense, missense, and frame shift). Some mutations can induce DNA transcription and translation errors eventually causing protein dysfunction that leads to disease [1, 2]. Currently, many whole genome scale association studies between disease and variation are being published [3]. However, medical researchers have had to go through mutations in patient DNA to detect mutations that may be the cause of a disease [4, 5].. There are many human disease gene databases that contain disease-causing mutation information as locus-specific databases (LSDBs). Also, large databases, such as Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM) [6] and the Human Gene Mutation Database (HGMD) [7], collect and describe comprehensively all disease-related genes. In contrast, LSDBs usually describe variations in a small number of genes. The LSDBs aim to provide particular genetic mutation ...
A mutation is any change occurring in the message that a gene carries. Mutations mainly arise as copy errors when DNA is replicated at mitosis and meiosis. Darwinian evolution requires a constant supply of variation: much of it is supplied by mutation, and a mutation-selection balance can maintain a genetic polymorphism. The first major geneticist to study mutation was H.J. Muller, who demonstrated it can be induced by X-rays. He also recognized that the rate of mutation in nature is extremely low, and that they are almost always deleterious to the fitness of the organism. The accumulation of deleterious mutations places a mutational load on the population. Mutations can occur at single base level or at chromosomal level. The effects of mutation can occasionally be very dramatic: some of these fruitflies have suffered mutations which alter the number of wings that develop... Is mutation directed?. ...
Mutations are generally regarded as bad. Ive covered several on this blog, from the curious genetics of werewolves to homeotic mutations that turn arms into legs to the sad tales of neurologic disease and hereditary blindness.. But some mutations are good. Perhaps the best is the CCR5 mutation that keeps HIV out of our cells, a genetic glitch that drugs and gene therapy are trying to imitate. Most mutations, it seems, are neither evil nor beneficial, but neutral. After all, Henny lived in good health for 115 years, yet her blood cells still accrued 450 mutations.. DNA Science blog always tries to find a different perspective to genetics news, and for the case of Henny, it is the fact that mutations need not signal doom. Dr. Holstege had the idea to look at Hennys genome because of the role of somatic mutations in causing cancer. But another view is that many mutations do nothing at all.. Neutral mutations will impact the application of DNA sequencing in health care decision-making. The Nature ...
We studied the occurrence of a p53 mutation along passages stored as frozen vials during establishment of a nontumorigenic human mammary epithelial cell line HMT-3522. Mutations were identified by a PCR-SSCP approach using DNA as a template. The mutation, a nonconservative nucleotide substitution at codon 179 changing a histidine into an asparagine, appeared between passages 51 and 63 and was concommitant to a change in growth conditions. Cells were no longer grown on collagen coat and cell growth was not responsive to insulin, transferrin, or hydrocortisone anymore. To assess if the mutation was an early or a late event during cell line evolution we put a vial of cells frozen at passage 30 back into culture and tested for the appearance of a p53 mutation along newly produced passages. The same mutation (His to Asp at codon 179), as previously identified, reemerged between passages 48 and 52, thus indicating that the mutation was preexisting in passage 30 and gradually selected out because of ...
Mutation assays can then be grouped together into PCR arrays based off common themes to enable users to profile a focused set of mutations. The mutations on an array are selected based on a commonality, such as being from the same gene, signaling pathway, or cancer type. For example, users could profile the most common 84 mutations in breast cancer or the 44 most common mutations in APC. The Custom qBiomarker Somatic Mutation PCR Arrays allow users to select the mutations that they wish to profile. Together, the qBiomarker Somatic Mutation products facilitate sensitive detection and profiling of mutations in cancer cells or tumor samples ...
dszA has four PstI cut sites. dszB has a PstI and a NotI cut site. dszC has two PstI cut sites. In order to be able to use these parts in construction, we had to eliminate these cut sites. Stratagene site directed mutagenesis was used for this purpose. During this procedure, two primers are designed for each mutation. Primers are complementary to the DNA strands except for one base pair. Therefore after the PCR, the whole plasmid is amplified with a point mutation. The base pair was chosen in a way so that it eliminates the cut site but the codon it belongs to still codes for the same amino acid (a silent mutation). We also used the same method to perform the Y63F mutagenesis in dszB (rationale will be explained). In this case the primers also introduce a point mutation. The point mutation causes the codon to code for Phe instead of Tyr. We also did this in a way so that the site of the mutation turns into a hpyAV cut site so we can confirm the mutagenesis by cutting the plamid with ...

2) its not only about expression. The difference can be anywhere from transcription to protein post-translational modifications. There can be mutation in the promotor changing significantly expression. If the binding of ribosome will be impaired, there will be much less of protein made. Single point mutations can lead to differences in binding of miRNAs. On the protein level, there are several options, you can have premature STOP codon and the resulting peptide is too short to do its work. Or you can have change of a crucial residue to turn off your protein, like in case of Asp to Asn mutations in receptor which impair its ability to transfer phosphates and thus signal the binding. Or you could change the post-translational modification and thus mis-localizing the protein or impairing its binding to partners or simply changing its activity ...

The genetic code has the remarkable property of error minimization, whereby the arrangement of amino acids to codons is highly efficient at reducing the deleterious effects of random point mutations and transcriptional and translational errors. Whether this property has been explicitly selected for is unclear. Here, three scenarios of genetic code evolution are examined, and their effects on error minimization assessed. First, a simple model of random stepwise addition of physicochemically similar amino acids to the code is demonstrated to result in substantial error minimization. Second, a model of random addition of physicochemically similar amino acids in a codon expansion scheme derived from the Ambiguity Reduction Model results in improved error minimization over the first model. Finally, a recently introduced 213 Model of genetic code evolution is examined by the random addition of physicochemically similar amino acids to a primordial core of four amino acids. Under certain conditions, 22% ...

Cancer arises when genetic mutations in a cell cause abnormal growth that leads to a tumour.. Some cancer drugs exploit this to attack tumour cells by targeting proteins that are mutated from their usual form because of mutations in the genes that encode them.. However, only a fraction of all the mutations that contribute significantly to cancer have been identified.. Thomas Peterson, at the University of Maryland, and colleagues developed a new statistical analysis approach that uses genetic data from cancer patients to find cancer-causing mutations.. Unlike previous studies that focused on mutations in individual genes, the new approach addresses similar mutations shared by families of related proteins.. Specifically, the new method focuses on mutations in sub-components of proteins known as protein domains.. Even though different genes encode them, different proteins can share common protein domains.. The new strategy draws on existing knowledge of protein domain structure and function to ...
A drug must interact with its target(s) to achieve the therapeutic effects. Mutation in drug target is a critical mechanism that results in drug resistance. The aim of this topic is to highlight clinically-relevant mutations in drug targets that lead to resistance to anticancer or antivirus agents as well as current strategies in overcoming these resistances. There are several scenarios under which a mutation could lead to drug resistance. Mutations could reduce the binding affinity of a drug to its target or render the target constitutively active. Worse yet, mutations could turn a drug from an antagonist into an agonist. For example, current therapeutic strategy for advanced prostate cancer is to inhibit the androgen receptor (AR) signaling. However, the W741C mutation in the AR was found to convert bicalutamide from an antagonist of the wild type AR into an agonist of the W741C AR mutant, which actually promotes tumor growth. Whats more, multiple resistant mutations in AR could be
In their new paper, published in PNAS, the researchers show that the Tmem161b protein plays an important role in the regulation of the cardiac rhythm in at least two species: the zebrafish and the mouse. The researchers observed a disturbed cardiac rhythm in a group of zebrafish embryos and the cause was traced back to a mutation in Tmem161b. Likewise, mice that carried a mutation in this gene displayed abnormalities in heart function. Homozygous mutations - that is, mutations that occur on both copies of the gene - are incompatible with life; animals with this double mutation in Tmem161b die prematurely. This also appears to be the case in humans. Animals with a heterozygous mutation - a mutation on one copy of the gene - mature, but then appear more susceptible to developing cardiac arrythmias. We do not know yet whether this is also the case in humans. Further research is necessary to elucidate this, says Lotte Koopman, researcher on the project ...
Background: Escape mutations potentially allow viruses to avoid detection and clearance by the host immune sys-tem and may represent a mechanism through which infections may persist in some patients. The association of the mutations in the HBcAg gene with Hepatitis B asymptomatic carriers (ASC) has not been studied adequately. The current study was aimed to investigate HBcAg18-27 CTL epitope mutations in ASC patients in the South-Eastern region of Iran. Methods: 100 ASC patients were selected for this study and screened for HLA-A2 using flow cytometry. HBV-DNA was extracted from the HLA-A2 positive patients and the HBc gene was amplified using PCR. Direct double sequencing was performed to analyse mutations in the HBc gene of HBV isolates from patients with ASC. Results: Overall, 25 (25%) of individuals were HLA-A2 positive. Direct double sequencing indicated no mutations in the HBcAg18-27 epitope. However, four mutations within the T helper and three mutations within the B cell epitopes of ASC ...

This is an interesting and important finding because it is (so far) the only example of a protein adopting two completely different stable folds with no hydrogen bonds in common at equilibrium. Trivially, natively disordered proteins adopt multiple conformations under physiological solution conditions, and many proteins alter their conformations in response to ligand binding while keeping most of their hydrogen bond network intact. In this case, however, an existing network of stabilizing bonds is completely disrupted in order to form a new fold with a totally different function. Ive already discussed some of the implications of this with respect to protein folding, and in regards to the recent transitive homology studies out of the Cordes group. Lymphotactin offers lessons and ideas for protein folding and evolution that must be taken into account. In particular, the fact that point mutations can significantly stabilize one or the other of these structures implies that there may be previously ...
Many mutations in cancer are of unknown functional significance. Standard methods use statistically significant recurrence of mutations in tumor samples as an indicator of functional impact. We extend such analyses into the long tail of rare mutations by considering recurrence of mutations in clusters of spatially close residues in protein structures. Analyzing 10,000 tumor exomes, we identify more than 3000 rarely mutated residues in proteins as potentially functional and experimentally validate several in RAC1 and MAP2K1. These potential driver mutations (web resources: 3dhotspots.org and cBioPortal.org) can extend the scope of genomically informed clinical trials and of personalized choice of therapy.
Our study was motivated by the hypothesis that mutations provide a rich source for novel vaccine targets. Although immunogenic mutations have been reported in mouse and man, there is a complete lack of knowledge about the fraction of nonsynonymous mutations processed and presented in an immunologic relevant manner. To address this question, we carried out the first mouse tumor exome capture study, identifying B16F10 somatic point mutations, followed by testing of mutations for their capability to elicit T-cell immunogenicity. Our result is the first map of the B16F10 T-cell-druggable mutanome.. The B16 melanoma cell line originated spontaneously in a C57BL/6 mouse in 1954 and was propagated by the Jackson Memorial Laboratory in Bar Harbor. In vivo passage of B16 cells resulted in formation of the highly metastatic daughter clone B16F10 (34). B16 cells express melanoma differentiation antigens and present MHC class I restricted epitopes from gp100, MART1 (35), tyrosinase (36), TRP1 (37) and ...
Cancer cells often acquire resistance to therapy due to genetic mutations. However, without drug selection, these mutations would likely have a fitness cost to cancer cells and we hypothesize that the severity of this fitness cost is correlated with the effectiveness of drug treatment, with more effective treatments leading to more drastic genetic lesions. The size of a genetic lesion often correlates with its fitness cost - point mutation having little cost, aneuploidy having a large cost. However, aneuploidy is fast because the search space is only 46 gains or losses, while point mutations are slow with billions of base pairs to search before finding the right mutations. We designed experimental and computational systems to understand the selection pressures that would lead to resistance by these different genetic mechanisms. Mice were implanted with xenograft tumors from the HT1080 fibrosarcoma cell line that were heterozygous for DR5 (TNFRSF10B) and extremely sensitive to treatment with a ...
The basic principle behind the data analysis is that we compare the Ct value of a mutation assay in a test sample with the Ct value of the same assay in a wildtype sample. When there is a significant difference (a preset value of 4 Cts) between the Ct values, the test sample is concluded to contain the mutation. The Ct values used for comparison can either be raw Ct (in average Ct method) or normalized Ct (in delta delta Ct case). When the Ct difference falls between 3 and 4, we give a borderline mutation call, which means that the mutation may be present at low percentage. When the Ct difference is smaller than 3, we give a negative mutation call (i.e. the mutation percentage is beyond the detection limit of the array). The wildtype sample can be either a genuine wildtype sample that is tested in the same experiment, or it could be a virtual wildtype sample that is computed from all test samples. For detailed description of the data analysis principle, refer to (link to white paper ...
A recent study published in Nature has found that the age at which a father has children will determine how many mutations his offspring inherit. Pioneering geneticist J. B. S. Haldane in the 1930s, had worked years before the structure of DNA was determined, but according to Nature, he was correct about why fathers pass on more mutations than mothers. Sperm is continually being generated by dividing precursor cells, which acquire new mutations with each division. By contrast, women are born with their lifelong complement of egg cells, according to the article. The study found that fathers passed on nearly four times as many new mutations as mothers: on average, 55 versus 14.. Stefánssons team also found that the older a man gets, the more new mutations are passed on. A 36-year-old will pass on twice as many mutations to his child as a man of 20, and a 70-year-old eight times as many, his team estimated.. Since the average age of childbearing is rising, the study suggests that more ...
A gene mutation is a permanent alteration in the DNA sequence that makes up a gene, making the sequence differ from what is found in most people. Mutations can affect anywhere from a single DNA building block (base pair) to a large segment of a chromosome that includes multiple genes. There are two types of gene mutations. Hereditary mutations are inherited from a parent and are present throughout a persons life in virtually every cell in the body. Acquired mutations, sometimes called somatic mutations, occur at some time during a persons life and are present only in certain cells. These changes can be caused by environmental factors or can occur if a mistake is made as DNA copies itself during cell division. ...

A significant but unquantified portion of genetic diseases is non-inherited; occurring from de novo (new) mutations in the the germ cells of the affected individuals. In humans, point mutations (i.e., mutations that occur in a single nucleotide base within the genome) occur with a frequency of about 1 to 3 x 10-8 per base (1), (2). There are many types of mutational alterations other than point mutations (e.g., mutations in microsatellites) (3). Our knowledge of the likelihood of other types of mutation most of these alternate types of mutation is limited. In many cases de novo mutations cause lethal genetic diseases that occur in children, through the action of a dominant gene (i.e., one gene copy that produces the disease). Such diseases are seldom inherited because they cannot be conserved in the population; those with the gene die early in life, without passing the gene to progeny. Sometimes, non-inheritance accounts for some proportion of cases that would otherwise occur as dominant gene ...

A new study provides some of the first links between relatively common mutations in the blood cells of the elderly and atherosclerosis.. Though cardiovascular disease, which is characterized in part by atherosclerosis, or plaque build-up, is a leading cause of death in the elderly, almost 60 percent of elderly patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (CVD) exhibit no conventional risk factors, or just one. This and other data suggest that age-dependent risk factors that havent yet been identified may contribute to CVD.. Scientists know that accumulation of somatic DNA mutations is a feature of aging, though little data exists on the role of such mutations in age-associated disorders beyond cancer. Meanwhile, recent human studies indicate that aging is associated with an increase in somatic mutations in the hematopoietic system, which gives rise to blood cells; these mutations provide a competitive growth advantage to the mutant hematopoietic cells, allowing for their clonal ...

Since loss of pRb does not induce tumorigenesis in many types of cells, natural mechanisms may neutralize the tumorigenic effects of prb loss in these cells. For susceptible cells, neutralizing the tumorigenic effects of pRb loss could logically be achieved by correcting the deregulated activities of pRb targets to render pRb-deficient cells less abnormal. This line of research has unexpectedly revealed that knocking out the prb target Skp2 did not render Rb1 deficient cells less abnormal ...

While wondering over internet, I just come across the mutation testing and here I blog about it. The blog largely said about one such framework PIT tests.. When we say my code coverage is 80%, that only mean, in simple term, your unit tests cover 80% of your code base. Do they really tell you what your tests are really testing? - No. To answer this, there is a thing that called as mutation testing. The framework I am talking about is PIT tests; they said its like automation tests for your tests. Cool!. How does it work?. Well in plain simple language, it mutate (modify the byte code at runtime) some logical part, decision taking part of your code and then run tests against such modified code, if your test fail (called as mutation killed), your test is OK, if its passed (called mutation survived), beware, there might be some bug hidden there. So, more the mutation killed more good your tests are.. Example:. The simplest example might be ...

Meanwhile, at MIT in Boston, Tyler Jacks - renowned for creating one of the two first p53 knock-out mice in 1992 - was on the same track. His lab was busy generating two different mouse models that mimicked LFS - one with the same point mutation as Lozanos mice, corresponding to human R175H, and another corresponding to R273H. The two groups published their findings in the same edition of Cell in December 2004. What distinguished their mouse models from others designed to test the activity of mutant p53 was that here the gene was being switched on naturally in response to signals from the cells environment. In most other models, the gene was switched on artificially by ...
Simulated annealing mimics the annealing process to solve an optimization problem. It uses a temperature parameter that controls the search. The temperature parameter typically starts off high and is slowly cooled or lowered in every iteration. At each iteration a new point is generated and its distance from the current point is proportional to the temperature. If the new point has a better function value it replaces the current point and iteration counter is incremented. It is possible to accept and move forward with a worse point. The probability of doing so is directly dependent on the temperature. This unintuitive step sometime helps identify a new search region in hope of finding a better minimum.. ...
