- adj. of or relating to alleles
The researchers used a technique that measures for what is known as allelic mRNA expression imbalance, which was developed in the Pharmacogenomics Core Lab, Program in Pharmacogenomics directed by Wolfgang Sadee, a co-author of this paper and a professor and chair of pharmacology at Ohio State.
This phenomenon, known as allelic imbalance, causes differences in the levels of mRNA expression.
Glutathione S-transferase P1 * C allelic variant increases susceptibility for late-onset Alzheimer's disease: Association study and relationship with Apolipoprotein E4 allele.
Researchers Susan Lolle and Robert Pruitt encountered phenotypic traits not according with inheritance concepts derived from Mendel; leading them to contemplate whether the plants they were working with might revert to their grandparents 'allelic frequency.
Would this indicate that if Dr. Lenski were to blend 4 or 5 of his different lines of non-Citrate-metabolizing bacteria, thus creating a population with a greatly increased allelic variety, then he would expect the ability to metabolize citrate to evolve faster than it was able to otherwise?
I repeat my conviction that sexual reproduction, Mendelian (allelic) genetics, natural selection, all these, are anti-evolutionary processes serving only to stabilize the species for as long as possible exactly as Leo Berg insisted 87 years ago.
The accumulation of allelic mutations will never produce a new true species.
I stand firm in my conviction that natural selection, sexual reproduction and undirected allelic mutation have played no role whatsoever in organic evolution except to serve as guarantees of extinction for all organisms that practiced only those losing strategies.
Joe, you seem to be saying that if an allelic difference is neutral in one genetic background, it must be neutral in all genetic backgrounds.
As early as the 1960s he had already established that an allelic variant of haptoglobin had occurred through recombinatorial events .
