Examples

  • Many human genome scientists opposed the policy of granting gene patents without knowledge of function, whether for ESTs and cDNAs or complete gene sequences.

    The Human Genome Project

  • Patents are granted on cloned genes because they are isolated and purified versions of their naturally occurring state; patents are granted on cDNAs because they are not found in nature (without intervening introns) but produced using RNA molecules and the enzyme reverse transcriptase; and patents are granted on proteins, even if they occur naturally, when genetically engineered on the basis of DNA or RNA sequence data.

    The Human Genome Project

  • Controversy about patenting genes was provoked over the course of the HGP when researchers at the NIH and elsewhere applied for patents on ESTs (expressed sequence tags) for cDNAs without having mapped and sequenced the relevant genes, and without any knowledge of gene function.

    The Human Genome Project

  • A few microorganisms purified protein are sufficient to decipher the sequence, prepare the corresponding cDNAs, identify the gene of the PGF in question, and express it in bacteria, thus replacing a search once guided by unpredictable strokes of luck, with a rational and systematic strategy.

  • RNA was isolated by the Trizol RNA isolation system (Invitrogen). cDNA was synthesized from RNA with oligo-dT and SuperScript II reverse transcriptase (Invitrogen). cDNAs were used for PCR amplification with the forward primer,

  • The reverse transcription was performed in limiting conditions of nucleotides and time in order to generate cDNAs of uniform size (~0. 5 to 1 kb), which are more likely to be uniformly amplified and to accurately reflect the relative abundances of various mRNAs in the cell.

  • To test whether Cdc2 phosphorylation of raptor might change the association of various components of mTORC1, epitope tagged cDNAs of the components of mTORC1 were expressed in HEK293E cells with or without nocodazole.

  • B, left panel, agarose gel electrophoresis of cDNAs generated from single GFP+ and GFP − cells.

  • Since RT-PCR analysis of single-cell cDNAs from Purkinje cells showed that Gpr126 was absent in these neurons (data not shown), the pattern of
