Nematode makes scientific history

... cloning of plantparasitic nematode genes by using primers that match nematode sequences ofinterest. These are exciting times for plant molecular nematologists because, ifgene order is highly conserved, simply sequencing regions adjacent to conservedgenes will open up treasures. . . and that's just the begin...

Antibiotic-resistant genes traced from farms to groundwater

...Microbiology. Aminov had reported his creation of primers for use with PCR to detect resistance genes in the environment earlier this year in the same journal. In the earlier paper, he also reported the detection of resistance genes in livestock intestines and feces and in commercial feed. The use of tetra...

Lab scientists develop DNA signatures for salmonella strain that are expected to drastically speed detection

...ok very good; theyre promising," Walker said. "The primers (DNA copies) are very specific and provide tools t...ce a sample is inserted into a PCR instrument, the primers seek out unique sequences of DNA, such as of salmonella enteritidis. If present, the primers attach...

Hepatitis E recovered from rats in Los Angeles

...ficantly different from human and swine HEV as the primers used to amplify RNA of those viruses do not work on this new agent. It is possible that these infected rats may contribute to the the high rates of humans with HEV antibodies in inner cities, says Purcell, but more tests need to be done. For the n...

USF presents new research on hyperlipidemic children

...ity and DNA was isolated for PON1 genotyping. PCR primers previously characterized for amplification of the PON1 gene polymorphism were synthesized and amplifications were performed. Plasma PON1 activity was determined by measuring the hydrolysis of paraoxon using an adaptation of spectrophotometric method...

Lawrence Livermore research team finds unique DNA signatures to improve anthrax detection

... for Disease Control for further validation. Once primers are developed from the B. anthracis signatures, they can be used for rapid, specific, DNA-based pathogen detection on many platforms, including the Livermore-developed portable instrument known as the Hand-held Advanced Nucleic Acid Analyzer, (HANAA)...
