Examples

  • Figure 4B, lane 2) is evident from competition with specific homologous (lane 3) and consensus (lane 5) unlabelled oligonucleotide but not when non-specific oligonucleotide (lane 4) was used in competition assays.

  • Standard cytogenetic analysis including preparation of karyotypes, metaphase and interphase based fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), high resolution single nucleotide polymorphism oligonucleotide based array (SNP array) analysis and mutation analysis of the INI1/SMARCB1 gene are available.

  • However, all the advances of ribozymology notwithstanding, the prospects of a bona fide ribozyme replicase remain dim as the ribozymes designed for that purposes are capable, at best, of the addition of ~10 nucleotides to a oligonucleotide primer, at a very slow rate and with fidelity at least an order magnitude below that required for the replication of relatively long RNA molecules [28,29].

  • His technique of choice was to reconstruct the sequence of the 16S rRNA using oligonucleotide cataloging.

  • In these simulations, oligonucleotide segments of variable length are excised from a given DNA sequence and then inserted either intact or in modified form, and at random, into the rejoined DNA.

  • In addition, many transposable elements exhibit strong preference for insertion at particular oligonucleotide target sites [21], [23]-[26].

  • However, these models are unsatisfactory in that they do not explicitly take into account the changes in oligonucleotide sequence that are associated with the insertion and excision of transposable elements.

  • Other hypervariable repeated sequences have been used in the same way, for example those detected by the synthetic oligonucleotide (CAC) 5 (Krawczak and Schmidtke, 1998). top link
