Caption: Figure 2: Protein microarray analysis of ASC-CM (a) and relative concentrations of EGF, PDGF-AA, VEGF, and bFGF in ASC-CM (b) (the microarray of ASC-CM was used in our previous published paper [14], but different proteins were highlighted in this paper and previous published paper).
Because clonal evolution is associated with disease progression and adverse clinical outcome (25-27), detection and characterization of subclonal populations by microarray analysis could improve the clinical workup of hematopoietic malignancies.
Caption: With microarray analysis, it is possible to look for small deletions and duplications on all the chromosomes within the whole genome.
Cytogenetic microarray analysis is also being explored in the prenatal period.
The trial found that microarray analysis, which compares a fetus's DNA with a normal (control) DNA, performed as well as karyotyping in identifying common aneuploidies (an abnormal number of chromosomes--an extra or missing chromosome causes genetic disorders such as Down syndrome and Edwards syndrome); it also identified additional abnormalities undetected by karyotyping.
After a chapter of background on molecular biology, microarray technologies, and microarray analysis, the book covers data services structure extrapolation, feature identification, chained Fourier reconstruction, graph-cutting, and stochastic dynamic modeling of short gene expression time series data.
Washington, March 15 (ANI): A new study has found that a genetic test that samples the entire genome, known as chromosomal microarray analysis (CMA), has about three times the detection rate for genetic changes related to autism than standard tests.
The kit requires no overnight lysis step--users can deparaffinize in the morning and perform the RT-qPCR, mRNA amplification or microarray analysis in the afternoon.
Complementary DNA (cDNA) microarray analysis is a powerful biological technique commonly used to simultaneously detect differentially expressing genes.
Its DecisonSite software, which features specific products for functional genomics, microarray analysis and lead discovery, is widely used by life science researchers.
Kunio Shiota, a professor of cellular biochemistry at the University of Tokyo and one of the co-organizers of the November 2005 Tokyo conference, says epigenetic advances will rely in part on a range of processes that are slowly becoming familiar to more researchers--massively parallel signature sequencing (MPSS), chromatin immunoprecipitation microarray analysis (ChIP-chip), DNA adenine methyltransferase identification (Dam-ID), protein binding microarrays (PBM), DNA immunoprecipitation microarray analysis (DIP-chip), and more.
