The reader may at this point raise a concern that there must be intrinsic bias to this process, as not all hexamers will be at exactly the same concentration, nor will all template sequences replicate with equal efficiency due to intrinsic effects from secondary structures, GC content variation, and the like.
Dodecamer and hexamer fractions were collected several times and reanalyzed using the analytical HPLC method.
Virologists refer to these panels as pentamers and hexamers or, collectively, capsomers.
2008) reported the absorption enhancing effect of chi-tosan hexamer for FD4 was dependent on its concentration, but its absorption enhancing effect was almost saturable up to 0.
Subsequently, 5 g of total RNA was transcribed into cDNA by using Moloney-murine leukemia virus (MMLV) Superscript II reverse transcriptase (Promega) and random hexamer primers.
The second step, which is the reverse transcription of mRNA into cDNA, requires primers and RT enzyme activity, cDNA synthesis could be carried out using different primers, such as random hexamer, oligo-dT, or specific primers.
Samples were reverse transcribed with random hexamer primers, and the maximal allowed volume of RNA sample that can be added to the reverse transcription reaction was used.
Don Hexamer, President of Tri-City, will continue in that capacity with D&W Fine Pack Canada, Inc.
The data should be formatted as a set of features and a class label; for example, this study includes 21 coding measures (the features), such as dicodon frequencies, hexamer frequencies, and length of the longest open reading frame.
Ray Hexamer, First Communications' CEO, noted, "Irrespective of the current environment, we believe First Communications is still extremely well positioned as a leader in this sector.
