We describe the effect of nearest-neighbor sequence context on mismatch-dependent activation of hMSH2-hMSH6. Examination of the intrinsic sequences that occur around symmetric mismatched nucleotides suggests little if any effect of non-nearest-neighbor base pairs on hMSH2-hMSH6 mismatch recognition and ATPase activation (20), although longer-range effects have been reported (22). Although a sequence context effect is not novel in MMR (21), the underlying mechanism is unknown. Our studies have suggested that when a significant nearest-neighbor sequence context effect is manifest, 2 × 3′-purines enhanced, and 2 × 3′-pyrimidines reduced hMSH2-hMSH6 ATPase activation (kcat). A similar trend is observed for mismatch binding (KD), whereas an inverse effect was observed for the Tm of unbound mismatched oligonucleotides. Importantly, the KD and Tm do not accurately account for hMSH2-hMSH6 ATPase activation. Interestingly, the effect of sequence context on KD appears associated with alteration of ...
Specific cis-acting sequences within the carlavirus potato virus S (PVS) genomic RNA molecule appear to control gene expression at the translational level. Two sequences have been investigated, the untranslated sequence upstream from the initiation codon of the viral coat protein gene, designated VTE and the 5 untranslated leader sequence from the genomic RNA molecule (PVS 5). In vitro and in vivo, either of these sequences enhance the translation of a downstream open reading frame when provided as the untranslated leader in a transcript molecule. Translational enhancement was also detected at the transgenic plant level. Both PVS sequences were deleted in an attempt to identify the core regulatory element responsible for this translational enhancement phenomenon. Results indicate that in vitro and in vivo, the functional motif is contained within the 5 promixal portion of both sequences. When the sequences of these important regions were compared, a homologous block of nucleotides was ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Determination of binding constants for cooperative site-specific protein-DNA interactions using the gel mobility-shift assay. AU - Senear, D. F.. AU - Brenowitz, M.. PY - 1991/9/9. Y1 - 1991/9/9. N2 - We have investigated the question of whether the gel mobility-shift assay can provide data that are useful to the demonstration of cooperativity in the site-specific binding of proteins to DNA. Three common patterns of protein-DNA interaction were considered: (i) the cooperative binding of a protein to two sites (illustrated by the Escherichia coli Gal repressor); (ii) the cooperative binding of a bidentate protein to two sites (illustrated by the E. coli Lac repressor); and (iii) the cooperative binding of a protein to three sites (illustrated by the λcI repressor). A simple, rigorous, and easily extendable statistical mechanical approach to the derivation of the binding equations for the different patterns is presented. Both stimulated and experimental data for each case are ...
Cbf1p is a basic-helix-loop-helix-zipper protein of Saccharomyces cerevisiae required for the function of centromeres and MET gene promoters, where it binds DNA via the consensus core motif CACRTG (R = A or G). At MET genes Cbf1p appears to function in both activator recruitment and chromatin-remodeling. Cbf1p has been implicated in the regulation of other genes, and CACRTG motifs are common in potential gene regulatory DNA. A recent genome-wide location analysis showed that the majority of intergenic CACGTG palindromes are bound by Cbf1p. Here we tested whether all potential Cbf1p binding motifs in the yeast genome are likely to be bound by Cbf1p using chromatin immunoprecipitation. We also tested which of the motifs are actually functional by assaying for Cbf1p-dependent chromatin remodeling. We show that Cbf1p binding and activity is restricted to palindromic CACGTG motifs in promoter-proximal regions. Cbf1p does not function through CACGTG motifs that occur in promoter-distal locations within coding
Methods for in-depth characterization of transcriptomes and quantification of transcript levels have emerged as valuable tools for understanding cellular physiology and human disease biology, and have begun to be utilized in various clinical diagnostic applications. Today, current methods utilized by the scientific community typically require RNA to be converted to cDNA prior to comprehensive measurements. However, this cDNA conversion process has been shown to introduce many biases and artifacts that interfere with the proper characterization and quantitation of transcripts. We have developed a direct RNA sequencing (DRS) approach, in which, unlike other technologies, RNA is sequenced directly without prior conversion to cDNA. The benefits of DRS include the ability to use minute quantities (e.g. on the order of several femtomoles) of RNA with minimal sample preparation, the ability to analyze short RNAs which pose unique challenges for analysis using cDNA-based approaches, and the ability to ...
The full-length ORF clone contains only the coding sequence of the full-length protein, while the other full-length cDNA clones contain some untranslated sequences, such as the 5side or 3′ side non translation. It is well known that these untranslated sequences may have a negative effect on the transcription and translation processes of the encoded proteins in the host.. If it is the ORF expressed clone, it can be transfected into cells and expressed in cells.. In the general situation, the carrier of cDNA clone is not the expression vector, so it can not be directly used for transfection of cells.. The difference between ORF, cDNA and CDS:. 1.what is a full-length ORF clone?. A full-length ORF clone is a plasmid inserted into a DNA fragment encoding a full-length protein. The inserted DNA fragment only contains sequence incoding a full-length protein, and does not contain the untranslated region of 5 or 3 end (UTRs) or intron.. 2.why should the full length ORF cDNA clones are used instead ...
Fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2) or basic FGF is a multifunctional protein that, through interaction with specific cell surface receptors, plays important roles in the growth and development of tissues and organs. Thus, considerable attention has focused on the control of FGF-2 gene expression, including assessments of RNA levels through blotting and the use of radiolabeled FGF-2 cDNA probes. Multiple transcripts of different sizes have been reported for FGF-2 by this approach, however, more recent evidence indicates that at least one of these RNAs of about 1.5 kb, is not an authentic FGF-2 transcript. A major band of 4.7 kb and a minor band of 6.1 kb were detected in total rat glial tumor cell RNA, using the intact rat ovarian FGF-2 cDNA as a probe at high stringency. This cDNA contains both coding and 5′-untranslated sequences. Although the 6.1 kb transcript levels were increased in RNA enriched for polyadenylated species, the levels of the 4.7 kb band were decreased and also shared a mobility
In the preceding paper we described an experiment that determined the in vivo forward mutation rate in a single replication cycle for spleen necrosis virus. In addition to substitutions, frameshifts, and hypermutations, the mutated proviruses contained two classes of deletions. One class of deletions contained short direct repeats at the deletion junctions. Another class of deletions had short stretches of sequences inserted at the deletion junctions. In this report, we describe the deletion mutations, and we present models for their generation. Detailed analysis of two deletions with insertions indicates that these mutations occurred as a result of template switching during plus-strand DNA synthesis. The analysis also indicates that fragments of viral RNA generated by the viral RNase H endonuclease are used as templates and contribute to the sequences inserted at the deletion junctions.. ...
The Pem gene encodes an atypical homeodomain protein, distantly related to Prd/Pax family members, that we demonstrate is regulated in a complex transcriptional and post-transcriptional manner. We show that the rat Pem genomic structure includes three 5-untranslated (5-UT) exons and four coding exons, three of which encode the homeodomain. Several alternatively spliced transcripts were identified, including one that skips an internal coding exon, enabling this mRNA to express a novel form of the Pem protein. Other alternatively spliced mRNAs were characterized that possess different 5-UT regions, including a muscle-specific transcript. The different 5-UT termini present in Pem transcripts conferred different levels of translatability in vitro. Two promoters containing multiple transcription initiation sites were identified: a distal promoter (Pd) in the first 5-UT exon and a proximal promoter (Pp) located in the intron upstream of the first coding exon. The Pd was active in placenta, ovary, tumor
ProtoScript II First Strand cDNA Synthesis Kit features two optimized mixes, ProtoScript II Enzyme Mix and ProtoScript II Reaction Mix. The enzyme mix combines ProtoScript II Reverse Transcriptase and Murine RNase Inhibitor, while the reaction mix contains dNTPs and an optimized buffer. ProtoScript II Reverse Transcriptase is a recombinant M-MuLV reverse transcriptase with reduced RNase H activity and increased thermostability. It can be used to synthesize first strand cDNA at higher temperatures than the wild type M-MuLV. The enzyme is active up to 48°C, providing higher specificity and higher yield of cDNA. The kit also provides two optimized primers for reverse transcription and nuclease-free water. An anchored Oligo-dT primer [d(T)23VN] forces the primer to anneal to the beginning of the polyA tail. The optimized Random Primer Mix provides random and consistent priming sites covering the entire RNA templates including both mRNAs and non-polyadenylated RNAs. The first strand cDNA product generated

In the current study, we applied cDNA cloning and RNA-Seq methods to identify two alternative CYP3A4 mRNA transcripts, one of which contained partial intron-6 retention and the other with a shorter 3′-UTR.. The CYP3A4 mRNA transcript with partial intron-6 retention can potentially be translated into a novel protein with a shortened amino acid sequence as a result of a translational stop codon in intron 6. However, the absence of a heme-binding signature in the encoded polypeptide precludes a catalytically active protein. Proportion of this transcript in all examined samples is less than 2% of total CYP3A4 mRNA. Therefore, its influence on CYP3A4 function is considered to be limited; as a result, we did not investigate function of this transcript in the current study. Although RNA-Seq also showed faint peaks in intron 11, Cufflinks did not assemble a transcript with intron-11 retention. Thus, the possible existence of intron-11 retention cannot be excluded based on the current evidence, and ...
king interactions (hydrogen bonding merely provides specificity of the pairing, not stability). As a result, it is both the percentage of GC base pairs and the overall length of a DNA double helix that determine the strength of the association between the two strands of DNA. Long DNA helices with a high GC content have stronger-interacting strands, while short helices with high AT content have weaker-interacting strands. In biology, parts of the DNA double helix that need to separate easily, such as the TATAAT Pribnow box in some promoters, tend to have a high AT content, making the strands easier to pull apart. In the laboratory, the strength of this interaction can be measured by finding the temperature required to break the hydrogen bonds, their melting temperature (also called Tm value). When all the base pairs in a DNA double helix melt, the strands separate and exist in solution as two entirely independent molecules. These single-stranded DNA molecules have no single common shape, but some ...

Luciferase Assay Reagents. OVERVIEW Control of gene expression in eukaryotic cells is regulated on transcriptional and post-transcriptional levels. Transcription factors are important regulators of transcription rates, and microRNAs are key mediators of mRNA stability and translation efficiency.. Regulation of transcription. DNA-encoded elements like promoters interact with transcription factors and other regulatory proteins to determine when, where, and how much of a genes mRNA product gets made. Reporter assays are a powerful technique for measuring the activity of promoters in living cells. Promoter GoClone Reporter Constructs are created by isolating a promoter from the human genome and cloning it upstream of the RenSP luciferase reporter gene on a plasmid. Once this plasmid is transfected into a living cell, a change in promoter activity causes a change in reporter signal (light output).. SwitchGear Promoter GoClone Reporter Assays can be used to monitor the activity of any promoter in a ...

A simplified method for isolating primer extension products and generating them in a form appropriate for electrophoresis is disclosed. The method is compatible with automated DNA sequencing procedures.
Gel shift assay: (aka gel mobility shift assay (GMSA), band shift assay (BSA), electrophoretic mobility shift assay (EMSA)) A method by which one can determine whether a particular protein preparation contains factors which bind to a particular DNA fragment. When a radiolabeled DNA fragment is run on a gel, it shows a characteristic mobility. If it is first incubated with a cellular extract of proteins (or with purified protein), any protein-DNA complexes will migrate slower than the naked DNA - a shifted band.. Gene: A unit of DNA which performs one function. Usually, this is equated with the production of one RNA or one protein. A gene contains coding regions, introns, untranslated regions and control regions.. Genome: The total DNA contained in each cell of an organism. Mammalian genomic DNA (including that of humans) contains 6x109 base pairs of DNA per diploid cell. There are somewhere in the order of a hundred thousand genes, including coding regions, 5 and 3 untranslated regions, ...
ChiP (Chromosome Immunoprecipitation) is a technique where DNA binding proteins, like transcription factors, can be localized to regions of a DNA molecule. We can use this method to identify which DNA sequences control expression and regulation for diverse genes. In the ChIP procedure, cells are treated with a reversible cross-linking agent to "fix" proteins to other proteins that are nearby, as well as the chromosomal DNA where theyre bound. The DNA is then purified and broken into smaller chunks by digestion or shearing and antibodies are used to precipitate any protein-DNA complexes that contain their target antigen. After the immunoprecipitation step, unbound DNA fragments are washed away, the bound DNA fragments are released, and their sequences are analyzed to determine the DNA sequences that the proteins were bound to. Only few years ago, this procedure was much more complicated than it is today, for example, the fragments had to be cloned before they could be sequenced. When microarrays ...

A novel method for detecting and isolating DNA sequences commonly held by different DNA preparations or repeated or amplified within a complex genome has been provided. The DNA preparations of interest are digested with the same restriction enzyme and a portion of at least one preparation is labeled with 32 P. The labeled and unlabeled DNA preparations are combined and electrophoresed in an agarose gel. Following electrophoresis, the DNA is denatured in situ and allowed to reanneal within the gel so that homologous DNA sequences present within restriction fragments of the same size can reanneal. After reannealing, unhybridized single-stranded DNA is digested in situ followed by detection of the reannealed DNA by autoradiography. When labeled and unlabeled DNAs are derived from different DNA preparations, only the restriction fragments commonly held by these two preparations are detected. When a restriction digest of total eukaryotic DNA is reassociated in the gel by this procedure, repeated restriction
Bottom line: What are the sequences of phage polymerase termination signals? Yes, I am still trying to get good in vitro transcription of a particular sequence for use in RNase protection analysis. Basically I can only really use one region and this is next to a T7 promoter so I am fiddling with the conditions. The transcript I get is mainly full length but the yield is awful. I tried 15degC for 3 h. It was worse then 37degC for 1 h. I tried the Maslak & Martin buffer and this may have improved things but the salt/detergent in the buffer screw up the gel purification of the probe (I am working on this). I tried beefing up the amount of enzyme or the amount of limiting nucleotide (32P-CTP) but this didnt really help. I have yet to try T4g32 protein or its equivalent. In the back of the Ambion MAXIscript guide their is a vague reference to accidental incorporation of phage RNA polymerase termination signals in a template being a reason for poor yield. No information is given as to what these ...
An analysis of the base pair doublet geometries in available crystal structures indicates that the often reported intrinsic curvature of DNA containing oligo-(d(A).d(T)) tracts may also depend on the nature of the flanking sequences. The presence of CA/TG doublet in particular at the 5 end of these tracts is expected to enhance their intrinsic bending property. To test this proposition, three oligonucleotides, d(GAAAAACCCCCC), d(CCCCCCAAAAAG), d(GAAAAATTTTTC), and their complementary sequences were synthesized to study the effect of various flanking sequences, at the 5 and 3 ends of the A-tracts, on the curvature of DNA in solution. An analysis of the polyacrylamide gel electrophoretic mobilities of these sequences under different conditions of salts and temperatures (below their melting points) clearly showed that the oligomer with CA/TG sequence in the center was always more retarded than the oligomer with AC/GT sequence, as well as the oligomer with AT/AT sequence. Hydroxyl radical probing ...
DNA. Computer artwork of a DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) double helix seen against autoradiograms of genetic sequences (upper right). The spiralling strands of the DNA helix (blue) are composed of complex chemical groups called nucleotides, which consist of a sugar phosphate and a base group. Complementary pairing between the base groups of nucleotides on opposite strands holds the helix together. The sequence of the 4 base groups (adenine, cytosine, guanine and thymine; coloured rods) along the DNA helix is unique for every individual and is known as the genetic code. The autoradiograms depict DNA base sequences, each band (dark blue) representing an individual base. - Stock Image G110/0642
Knowledge of the sequence of a DNA segment has many uses, and some examples follow. First, it can be used to find genes, segments of DNA that code for a specific protein or phenotype. If a region of DNA has been sequenced, it can be screened for characteristic features of genes. For example, open reading frames (ORFs)-long sequences that begin with a start codon (three adjacent nucleotides; the sequence of a codon dictates amino acid production) and are uninterrupted by stop codons (except for one at their termination)-suggest a protein-coding region. Also, human genes are generally adjacent to so-called CpG islands-clusters of cytosine and guanine, two of the nucleotides that make up DNA. If a gene with a known phenotype (such as a disease gene in humans) is known to be in the chromosomal region sequenced, then unassigned genes in the region will become candidates for that function. Second, homologous DNA sequences of different organisms can be compared in order to plot evolutionary ...
The kinetic theory of replication has been extended to include dual mechanisms for conversion of self-annealed single-strand RNA to double-strand molecules, which do not replicate. An analysis of experimental results established that the replicate-template annealing reaction during transcription significantly retarded replication in vitro among three RNA variants copied by Qβ replicase. Annealing between complementary RNA strands free in solution had far less significance. The finding that an RNA variant can be replicated in a multiple hairpin configuration, but not as its single, long hairpin conformer, the correlation between stability of strand secondary structure and replicative fitness, and a lack of homology in the internal sequence of RNA variants copied by Qβ replicase support the conclusion that template competence depends on strand configuration, independent of most of the underlying base sequence. Occurrence of self-annealed strands in the Qβ replicase system was attributed to its ...

However, in cases 5 and 6 we seem to come to a radical discontinuity. In both of these cases, there can be an analogical (and therefore "meaningful") relationship between the nucleotide sequence ACA in DNA and the corresponding amino acid sequence in a translated polypeptide, either in vitro or in a cell. What makes this difference possible (and what may make it necessary) is the analogical relationship between the nucleotide sequence and the corresponding amino acid sequence (if one exists). If the DNA sequence ACA is located in the template strand of an actively transcribed DNA sequence (i.e. a DNA sequence beginning with a promoter to which RNA polymerase can bind) and furthermore its complementary RNA analog is located in an mRNA molecule following the "start" codon AUG but not following a "stop" codon (either UAA, UAG, or UGA, assuming a three-base reading frame), then that the DNA sequence does indeed contain "meaningful" information: it is encoded in one medium, is translated into another ...

The human genome is densely populated with transposons and transposon-like repetitive elements. Although the impact of these transposons and elements on human genome evolution is recognized, the significance of subtle variations in their sequence remains mostly unexplored. This study reports homozygosity mapping of an infantile neurodegenerative disease locus in a genetic isolate. Complete DNA sequencing of the 400-kb linkage locus revealed a point mutation in a primate-specific retrotransposon that was transcribed as part of a unique noncoding RNA, which was expressed in the brain. In vitro knockdown of this RNA increased neuronal apoptosis, consistent with the inappropriate dosage of this RNA in vivo and with the phenotype. Moreover, structural analysis of the sequence revealed a small RNA-like hairpin that was consistent with the putative gain of a functional site when mutated. This study show here that a mutation in a unique transposable element-containing RNA is associated with lethal ...
The invention relates to methods for the use of the polymerase chain reaction to amplify a segment of a cloned gene of interest in such a way as to allow a simplified introduction of alterations such as deletions, insertions, repetitions (both direct and inverted) and substitutions into the cloned gene in a specific and precise manner. The unique, amplified segment of the cloned gene so amplified is a common substrate for each of the different approaches to introducing the various alterations into the gene. Choice of the primer sites within the amplified segment coupled with choice of the orientation of the molecule once ligated to itself results in the various resulting embodiments of the invention.

Gene - A length of DNA that codes for one (or more) polypeptides.. Polypeptide - A polymer consisting of a chain of amino acids, joined together by peptide bonds.. Genome - The entire DNA sequence (nucleotide base pairs) of an organism.. Protein - A large polypeptide (usually 100 or more amino acids). Some consist of more than one polypeptide chain e.g. Haemoglobin.. Locus - A specific position on a chromosome, occupied by a specific gene.. In the human genome, there are about 25,000 genes. A few are in the mitochondria, but most genes are found on the chromosomes within the nucleus. Each gene occupies a specific locus on the chromosome. The DNA in the chromosomes is associated with histone proteins.. Remember each chromosome consists of one molecule of DNA, and each gene is just a part of a DNA molecule.. Genes code for polypeptides such as:. ...
The mod-5(knu383) allele repair oligonucleotide contained a 3-frame stop of TAAATAAATAAA surrounded by filler sequence of CCTCCCGTTCGCCTGGGACATC and GATGTCCCAGGCGAACGGGAGG. The homology arms were designed to give perfect homology for each of the sgRNA cut sites with 35 nucleotides of perfect homology on the 5 side and 34 nucleotides on the 3 side. These homology arms are 12,775bp apart from each other in the genomic sequence. The deletion was created using the CRISPR/Cas9 technology (Paix 2014, Kim 2014). The guide sequences were caaaagaaaagagcagccga and caaaagaaaagagcagccga provided in the injection mix as synthetic RNA. The deletion was detected by a three-primer PCR approach where an 813bp band would amplify in the deletion and a 614bp band would amplify in N2 wild-type, Figure 1A ...
Construction of p53RE database and comparative analysis of p53 target genes. p53REs typically consist of two copies of a 10-bp motif (RRRCWWGYYY) separated by 0 to 12 bp. We first extracted all putative p53 binding sites in the entire human and mouse genomes. The sequence data were downloaded from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) Human Assembly 33 (April 10, 2003) and the MGSC Mouse Assembly 3 (February 2003) and then input to the p53RE prediction system. We set the parameter conditions to include the following restrictions: (i) fewer than four mismatches in the 20-nucleotide consensus binding sequence, and (ii) the spacer between the 10-bp motifs has fewer than 12 bp. The output data, which consisted of p53 binding site IDs, chromosomal positions, nucleotide sequences, the number of mismatches, spacer length, and the 200-bp sequences surrounding the binding sites, were stored in the p53RE database.. We next added the gene annotation information into each of the binding ...
A local suppressor of the G48,475C mutation was T48,479C (found in Rev8), which by itself has no phenotype (Wieczorek and Feiss 2001). To ask whether other pairs of cosQ mutations affecting base pairs 48,475 and 48,479 were mutually suppressing, we constructed the eight other possible double-mutant combinations of base pair changes. None of the double mutants formed plaques, indicating that the changes in Rev8 were the only ones showing suppression at these positions (S. Gaeth, D. Wieczorek and M. Feiss, unpublished observations). Curiously, all of the mutually suppressing pairs of mutations we have found are 4 bp apart. Furthermore, the pairs of mutually suppressing cosQ mutations in the first and fifth cosQ base pairs occupy positions that are rotationally symmetric with the third and seventh base pairs that also exhibit mutual suppression (Figure 3).. A second observation suggests that cosQ may be a rotationally symmetric element: the 7-bp cosQ segment is coincident with an EcoO109I ...
The conditions under which oligonucleotides hybridize only with entirely homologous sequences are recognized. The sequence of a given DNA fragment is read by the hybridization and assembly of positively hybridizing probes through overlapping portions. By simultaneous hybridization of DNA molecules applied as dots and bound onto a filter, representing single-stranded phage vector with the cloned insert, with about 50,000 to 100,000 groups of probes, the main type of which is (A,T,C,G)(A,T,C,G)N8(A,T,C,G), information for computer determination of a sequence of DNA having the complexity of a mammalian genome are obtained in one step. To obtain a maximally completed sequence, three libraries are cloned into the phage vector, M13, bacteriophage are used: with the 0.5 kb and 7 kbp insert consisting of two sequences, with the average distance in genomic DNA of 100 kbp. For a million bp of genomic DNA, 25,000 subclones of the 0.5 kbp are required as well as 700 subclones 7 kb long and 170 jumping subclones.
For DNA, the searches are conducted by finding the motif within a sequence from the 5 to 3 end on the top strand. The searches are also processed from the 5 to 3 end of the bottom strand. As a result, bases are numbered from 1 starting at the 5 at either the top or bottom strand.. Regular expression and fuzzy pattern searches are available:. Fuzzy searches provide the option for the program to allow a certain number of mismatches from a sequence input at any position. Note that the maximum number of mismatches that the program allows is 40% of the length of the sequence motif.. Regular expression allows for inputs of precise motifs along with considerable user-specified flexibility at specific positions.. ...
Well, in this case "sheer dumb luck" seems to be smarter than you in a very obvious way.. In most cases, palindromes with functions in DNA sequences dont have to be perfect. They often have variation and are still functional. Whats often palindromic is not each instance of, say, a transcription factor binding site, but the consensus obtained from aligning several of those sequences and looking at the most frequent "letter" at each position.. Theres also the tiny little detail that actual "palindromes" are pretty short. Its not impossible to write several palindromes with DNA, say, six letters long. Its not impossible for those to occur, just by chance, in quite large numbers in a genome.. Check this out. Suppose that every base has equal probability in the human genome. The probability of any sequence six bases long, including any of the potential palindromes, would be:. p = (1/4)**6 = 0.000244140625. Now, that means that the sequence can be present in a six billion bases long genome (like ...

Recombinant plasmids: pSGZL1 was constructed by ligating the GAL4-C1 EcoRI fragment from pGALC1 (Goffet al. 1991) into the EcoRI site of pIC20H (Marshet al. 1984). The GAL4-C1 fragment of pSGZL1 was excised with BamHI-Bgl II and inserted into the BamHI site of pCIB770 (Rothsteinet al. 1987) yielding pAT53.. The 10 UASG sites and the minimal CaMV 35S promoter (−59 to +1) were excised from pGALLuc2 (Goffet al. 1991) as an EcoRI-PstI fragment and inserted into the respective sites of pBluescript, yielding pAT52. pAT66 was constructed with a three-way ligation between the HindIII-PstI fragment of pAT52, a PstI-EcoRI fragment of pCIB1716 (containing a CaMV 35S untranslated leader, GUS gene, CaMV 35S terminator) and HindIII-EcoRI cut pUC18.

In principle, any mechanism that provides regulatory information to a genome without altering its primary nucleotide sequence could be considered epi- (on top of) genetic. We begin by providing a general overview of the modifications and responsible enzymes, followed by a more detailed discussion of various epigenetic mechanisms that exist in complex genomes and some concluding remarks about the future of the human epigenome project.
Encoded in the strings of DNA bases that make up the genomes of living species are codes that regulate, control, and describe all sorts of biological processes. The underpinnings of these codes lie in the base sequence-dependent micromechanical properties of DNA, which determine the degree to which the long, threadlike molecule fluctuates and how it responds to the proteins that control its processing and govern its packaging. In order to understand the mechanisms by which DNA base sequence and tightly bound proteins control the biophysical properties of the long, threadlike molecule, we have developed a coarse-grained model, in which the DNA base pairs are treated as rigid bodies subject to realistic, knowledge-based energy constraints, and computational techniques to determine the minimum-energy configurations, intrinsic dynamics, and looping/cyclization propensities of these molecules. The presentation will highlight some of the unique, sequence-dependent spatial information that has been ...
The scope of this symbol should then be extended to glide planes in a diagonal orientation, that is, parallel to just one crystal axis, provided that the glide plane has a glide vector along that axis and that the net N is orthogonal centred. For such planes there is not the ambiguity of the above a-b random choice, but the extended scope of the new symbol is in line with that of all existing symbols (namely a, b, c, n and d). Each of these is used for a glide plane with both one and two crystal axes in the net N, cf. Fig. 3.. The letter e is proposed for the new symbol. Thus, Ee will apply to glide planes with orthogonal centred nets N and at least one glide vector along a crystal axis. A new criterion is hence necessary: namely the orientation of glide vectors with respect to the conventional axes of the crystal. Since the latter are along symmetry directions, whereas every glide plane is parallel to a mirror plane of the lattice, it is not surprising that there is always at least one ...
Standard protocols were used (Sambrook et al., 1989).. Hsp83-lacZ transgenes. The following approach was taken to generate the series of lacZ-Hsp83 3′‐UTR constructs that include the 5′‐Hsp83 enhancer sequences and promoter (Figure 3B). Previous reports (Kim‐Ha et al., 1993) suggested that a full‐length lacZ ORF might not be completely transcribed in vivo. Therefore, we inserted the Hsp83 3′‐UTR fragments downstream of a truncated lacZ tag. We accomplished this by constructing pB83Z, a Bluescript subclone that contains all of the Hsp83 5′ upstream region, the first exon, the intron and the first 111 codons of the ORF fused to 603 bp of lacZ sequence (Halsell, 1995). At the 3′ end of the lacZ sequence are AatII, HindIII and KpnI cloning sites for inserting the Hsp83 3′‐UTR fragments. The template for the PCR was Eco9, an 8 kb EcoRI fragment subcloned in Bluescript that contains the full‐length Hsp83 transcription unit. 5′ Fragments of the 3′‐UTR were PCR amplified ...

PCR amplification of 13 exons contained in the ALG8 gene is performed on the patients genomic DNA. Direct sequencing of amplification products is performed in both forward and reverse directions, using automated fluorescence dideoxy sequencing methods. The patients gene sequences are then compared to a normal reference sequence. Sequence variations are classified as mutations, benign variants unrelated to disease, or variations of unknown clinical significance. Variants of unknown clinical significance may require further studies of the patient and/or family members. This assay does not interrogate the promoter region, deep intronic regions, or other regulatory elements, and does not detect large deletions ...
Methods for expressing a variety of biologically active PDGF analogs in eucaryotic cells are disclosed. The methods generally comprise introducing into a eucaryotic host cell a DNA construct capable of directing the expression and secretion of biologically active PDGF analogs in eucaryotic cells. The DNA construct contains a transcriptional promoter followed downstream by a suitable DNA sequence. The DNA sequence may encode a protein substantially homologous to the A-chain or the B-chain of PDGF, or a portion thereof, or an A-B heterodimer. In addition, a portion of the DNA sequence may encode at least a portion of the A-chain, while another portion encodes at least a portion of the B-chain of PDGF. Eucaryotic cells transformed with these DNA constructs are also disclosed. Methods of promoting the growth of mammalian cells, comprising incubating the cells with a biologically active PDGF analog expressed by a eucaryotic host cell transformed with such a DNA construct, are also disclosed.
No matter what the length of A and B are, A and B (the aligned sequences) will be of the same length. This simply comes from the definition of an alignment. The characters (representing base pairs) from the two sequences are arranged as to minimize the differences between them, and then the empty spaces (if any) are filled in with gaps (dash characters). These gaps are typically interpreted as evolutionary events between two homologous sequences, i.e. an insertion of nucleotides to one sequence or a deletion of nucleotides from the other (indels).. ...

PCR can be used for a variety of purposes, in this case however, PCR was used in order to determine whether or not a specific gene codes for cancer or not. If a cancer gene is located, then it will yield a positive result because the primers only bind to a certain sequence in the DNA and if that certain sequence codes for cancer, then it will produce a positive result indicating that it was located in that sequence. The specific sequence that was focused on was r17879961 with the sequence AACTCTTACA[C]TGCATACAT instead of being AACTCTTACA[T]TGCATACAT. The change is from ACT to ATT. The change from the C base into the C base is a missense where the normal T mutates into the cancer C. To identify whether such mutation occurred in the sequence using PCR, primers should first be designed to bind into the specific sequence. The primer needed for the sequence. The forward primer needed for the sequence is TGGTATAAGACATTCCTGT while the reverse primer should be AACTCTTACACTGCATACAT. Using PCR, the ...

The presence of certain types of repetitive elements in a sequence may sometimes distort the results of GENSCAN. In particular, L1 elements are often predicted as genes. To avoid this potential problem, you may wish to pre-screen for repetitive elements with a program like RepeatMasker or censor which replace sequence segments matching any of a set of elements common to your organism (e.g., Alu, L1, etc.) by the same number of asterisks or `Ns. (To get instructions for the censor email server, send mail to [email protected] with the word "help" in the body of the message.) Note that GENSCAN does accept sequences containing Ns or asterisks and that long stretches of such symbols are interpreted as probable repetitive elements (i.e. non-coding DNA). For large-scale sequencing efforts, other repeat-screening methods are also available, e.g., masking repeats detected by BLASTN or TBLASTN using the XBLAST procedure (Claverie, J.-M. (1994) In Automated DNA Sequencing and Analysis Techniques, M. ...
The researchers developed technology that will enable them to examine tumors, with the goal of understanding the likelihood of palindrome formation in these tumors, Rattray said. They hope to learn what events initiate such unstable formations, and this new understanding could lead to novel treatments. For example, she said, the group has already determined that certain yeast cells that are susceptible to palindrome formation are far more sensitive than normal cells to radiation as well as to compounds often used in the treatment of cancer, such as cisplatin.. "Currently, I am trying to establish methods to selectively enrich palindromes from the rest of the cellular DNA, which will allow greater sensitivity in the analysis of the palindrome content of cancer cells," she said. In the previous method, the researchers lost the junction sequences that might provide clues to the origin of the palindromes, and had to analyze them one by one, she explained. "We have now shown that the PacBio platform ...
Transgene vector and generation of transgenic mice.We obtained the Crx genomic clone from a 129SVJ mouse library (Stratagene, La Jolla, CA) by using a mouse Crx cDNA probe. We ligated and subcloned a 10 kb XhoI (partial digestion)-EcoRI fragment and a PCR-amplified 2 kbEcoRI-SmaI fragment containing exon 1 into a pβ-gal-Basic vector (Clontech, Palo Alto, CA) to make the Pcrx12k-lacZ construct (see Fig. 1A). Sequencing verified the 2 kb EcoRI-SmaI fragment. The Pcrx2k-lacZ vector contains the 2 kbEcoRI-exon 1 fragment and a 10 kbSmaI-EcoRI fragment that contains the first intron.. We extracted the Pcrx2k-lacZ and the Pcrx12k-lacZ from the recombinant plasmids by aNotI and SalI digestion. We fractionated theNotI-SalI fragments by electrophoresis on a 0.8% agarose gel and purified them by electroelution in dialysis tubes. We microinjected the DNA fragment into pronuclei of B6SJL/F2 C57BL/6 × SJL F2 hybrids. Then Southern blot hybridization of a HindIII-ClaI 954 bp fragment of the β-galactosidase ...
General global sequence descriptors have been developed which proved to be widely applicable to the prediction of properties of biological genes and gene products. These descriptors include composition, transition, and distribution of defined attributes in the amino acid or nucleotide sequence. We have tested this approach on three completely distinct biological problems: 1) prediction of protein three-dimensional folds, 2) discrimination between sequences of gene introns and exons, and 3) identification of putative RNA genes in genomic sequences.

Each strand of DNA is built out of four nucleotides (or bases) called adenine (A), thymine (T), cytosine (C), and guanine (G). Genetic information is determined by the sequence of bases along the strand. This program will find the longest common base sequence in two strands of DNA. Each strand is represented by the sequence of letters A, T, C, and G. For example, in the two strands ATGC and TGAC the longest common sequence is TG. The two strands need not have the same length. It is quite possible for the two strands not to have any common sequence (a sequence of 1 base does not count). Input: Prompt the user to enter two strands of DNA one strand at a time. Output: You will write out all the common longest subsequences, one line at a time. If you do not find any common sequence write No Common Sequence Found. Here is what a typical session would look like ...

So pZS25 uses an SC101 origin of replication (low copy number; about 10 copies), has kanemycin antibiotic resistance, and uses P_lacUV5-1 as its regulatory unit (repressed by LacI and induced by IPTG). The actual plasmid that we used was a version that had been modified by Hernan Garcia so that the promotor region had modifications that could be used to study the structural properties of DNA. Hernan created plasmids of the form pZS25.TA-94-YFP, which is a plasmid with a promotor region of length 94 (default), using a certain combination of sequences between the operator regions for lacI. The cloning that we want to do is to replace YFP with lacZ (which we extracted from a pZE21 plasmid). Step 1: create pZS25 vector (Sun afternoon) - the first thing that we did was to use restriction enzymes to create our "vector", where we would eventually insert the lacZ gene. We did this but cutting the pZS25 plasmid using HindIII and KpmI in a "double digest". To get some sense of how the restriction enzymes ...

Targeted Disruption of theMrp3Gene and Generation ofMrp3-/-Mice. A 1-kb fragment containing the 5′ end of the Mrp3 coding sequence was used to screen a mouse strain 129-derived λ phage genomic library, and a ∼9-kb Mrp3 clone was isolated. The Mrp3 genomic clone was sequenced using an ABI 377 DNA sequencer (Applied Biosystems, Foster City, CA) and encompassed exons 2 to 11 of the Mrp3 gene, corresponding to nucleotides 100 to 1482 of the coding sequence. The left and right arms of a targeting vector were generated by polymerase chain reaction and were inserted, respectively, to the 5′ and 3′ of the pgk-neo cassette in the PNT plasmid. The vector was designed to delete exons 6 to 8, encoding nucleotides 613 to 996 of the coding sequence, and to introduce a frame-shift into the transcribed RNA sequence. The nucleotide sequence of the cloned arms was confirmed, and the resulting ∼12-kb vector was digested with NotI. The linearized DNA was electroporated into strain 129-derived R1 ...

DNA from all organisms is made up of the same chemical and physical components. DNA molecules are shaped like a twisted ladder ("double helix"). Each rung/step is made up of a Base pair of nucleotide (molecules) bases, either A (Adenine) and T (Thymine) or C (Cytosine) and G (Guanine)). These Base pairs are held together by a band of Sugar phosphate on either end. The DNA sequence is a particular side-by-side arrangement of bases (half of the ladder) along the DNA strand (e.g., ATTCCGGA). The genome is an organisms complete set of DNA. DNA in the human genome is arranged into 24 distinct chromosomes. Genes comprise only about 2% of the human genome.. ...

Mixed bases are used in primers to bind to templates that contain variability or a mixture of sequences at the primer binding sites. Mixed bases can also be used to create diversity in clone libraries and in site directed mutagenesis.. IDT offers random base oligos. Order them by using an upper case letter N or other IUPAC-IUB symbol (see table below). IDT offers two types of randomization, machine mix and hand mix. Machine mix bases are charged at the standard base price for the scale ordered. Hand mixing is done to provide custom ratios of the bases, and incurs an additional charge. When entering your sequence, the "Mixed Base" tab at the bottom of the page lists the IUB symbols and is where custom mix ratios need to be entered ...
RNAstable is a novel RNA preservation product designed to protect RNA samples from degradation during storage or shipment at ambient temperatures.
There are three important considerations for the landing sequence. First, the sequence must be unique. Clearly a very short landing sequence (like TTT) would anneal to too many places during the PCR. You are assuring specificity by starting with a sequence that is 20 bases long. The second consideration is the temperature required for this sequence to base pair. The melting temperature depends on both the length of the landing sequence and the GC content. Finally there are secondary structures that the primer can adopt. A well-designed primer will have short hairpins (if any), its melting temperature will be around 60°C, and if possible its GC content will be about 50%. There are several websites to help you evaluate these aspects of your primer. Try to copy the 20 bases of landing sequence into the Cybergene website (http://www.cybergene.se/primer.html), another link that can be found on the BE.109 DNA engineering wiki page. Leave the defaults for stems and loops as they are and then analyze ...

DNA sequencing. A scientist marks reference points on an autoradiogram. The dark bands correspond to the base-pair (nucleotide) sequence of a section of DNA following its separation into fragments by the process of gel electrophoresis. Each group of four banded lines represents the nucleotide sequence of A-G-C-T (Adenine-Guanine-Cytosine- Thymine). Nucleotides are the structural and functional units of DNA. From this map the sequence of nucleotides can be determined in a strand of DNA, in order to find the structure of genes. - Stock Image G210/0558
The DNA sequence has a simple numerical expression: it is composed of three billion base pairs. That is enough information to code for about 100,000 to 300,000 genes, each gene being a region of DNA that can specify a protein or some other structure that carries out a function in the organism. Nobody knows how many genes are really involved, because we do not know the average size of a gene in the human body. Our estimate of 100,000 assumes that there are about 30,000 base pairs per gene, which is a reasonably good guess. But many genes are only 10,000 base pairs long, so perhaps there are as many as 300,000. Many of the most interesting of those genes have multiple RNA splicing patterns, that is, the messenger RNA transcribed from a single gene may splice together different parts of the DNA sequence of the gene. The function of these patterns must be understood in order to study an individual human gene. So saying that a human is made up of 1,000 genes underestimates the complexity of the human ...

This lecture and the first part have some interesting discussion of biology. They are from a couple years ago and are somewhat dated, but provide a very good overview of some of the interesting aspects of genes. The thing that I found to be really interesting was the fact that in any progeny there is a small set of SNPs which are carried along to all progeny and since we are talking about the product of 20 random numbers in the range between 1 and about 24 billion ( 3 billion base pairs x two duplicate sets ( in 26 chromosomes ) x 4 possible bases ), the likelihood of that specific product is unique in small populations like the humans. [ When rereading this I wondered about the possibility that every cell in my body could have an identifiable parentage due to the same transcription variations, kind of spooky and possibly a useful observation ...
A DNA sequence is composed of a series of four possible nucleobases, namely Adenine, Guanine, Thymine and Cytosine; we will refer to each of these bases by their initial. For our purposes, nucleobases have an associated cyclic "order": A is followed by G, which in turn is followed by T, which is followed by C, which is followed by A again. State-of-the-art research in genomics has revealed the startling fact that many diseases are caused by certain subsequences of bases not forming a palindromic sequence! Your mission as a leading researcher at ICPC laboratories is to take a DNA string S and a series of subsets P1, ... , Pt of indices to characters (nucleobases) in S, and transform S so that each of the restrictions of the resulting string to P1, ... , Pt are palindromic.

Base: JDK updated Base: grub boot timeout is now 10 seconds Base: improved script to fetch 441 private key after re-installation of a node Base: it is now possible to use a /etc/ssh/ssh_known_hosts.local to insert static entries Base: rocks set host interface ip does not allow anymore invalid IP number Base, Ganglia, KVM: several fixes and improvement to the documentations Base: Bugfix. record in rocks data base partitioning information Base: rocks report host interface was failing with bonded interface Ganglia: rrd uses previous data retention policy (as in ganglia 3.2) to reduce disk usage (ganglia 3.3 policy was ...

A genetic region affecting the activity of genes on that same DNA molecule. Cis-acting loci generally do not encode proteins, but rather serve as attachment sites for DNA-binding proteins. Enhancers, operators, and promoters are examples of cis-acting loci. Contrast with trans-acting locus. ...
Fig. 4. Myt1 mRNA translation is up-regulated by a 5′ variant xlmiR16. (A) Myt1 3′-UTR has seven putative xlmiR16 sites (dashes). Mutation of the site at 1,284 nt (mt3Myt1 3′-UTR) in the 528-nt or full-length Myt1 3′-UTR failed to demonstrate translation activation and was unaffected by xlmiR16 presence or depletion (SI Methods; siRNAs antisense to pre-miR16 reduced mature xlmiR16 after 6 h, likely because of interference with processing or stability instead of cleavage activity; Fig. S4A). Translation activation is restored by addition of a compensatorily mutated xlmt3miR16 that can base pair to the mutated site (SI Methods). Both B1/xlmiR16 (shown) and B3/xlmiR16 (Fig. 4C shows base pairing) are able to rescue. (B) Northern analyses of Firefly reporters containing the 528-nt Myt1 3′-UTR and mt3Myt1 3′-UTR and REN RNA levels after treatment with si-pre-miR16 with or without mt3xlmiR16 add-back. (Right) Endogenous Myt1 mRNA levels with or without si-pre-miR16 treatment; U6 RNA is a ...
