MLPA was performed for samples that produced no amplification of CYP21A2 and/or CYP21A1P, and for samples that possessed a hybrid gene. One sample produced no amplification in the long-range PCR of CYP21A2.
(55,56) The composition of the hybrid gene, and therefore the peak sensitivity of the photopigment will be determined by the position within the gene at which the intragenic recombination takes place.
According to researchers from NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, gene fusions - a hybrid gene formed from two previously separated genes - may be at the root of what causes cancer cells to grow more quickly than normal cells.
The fusion of cry1B with cry1Ab seemed to increase the insecticidal property of the hybrid gene as evidenced from the complete protection of all the transgenic rice plants (Nab4 and Mab2) produced including the progenies against yellow stem borer, whereas transgenic rice with cry1Ab have been shown to confer varied protection ranging from 66.7 to 100% (Datta et al., 1998).
To do this, they created a hybrid gene in the laboratory.
Once the kids, calves, or piglets are born, researchers test them for the presence of the hybrid gene.
Primate gene Scientists identified a hybrid gene that, in their view, contributed to the evolution of apes and people (163: 115).
The leukemia originates when pieces of chromosomes 9 and 22 fuse, forming a hybrid gene called Bcr-Abl (SN: 12/11/99, p.
The researchers fused the gene for VAMP to the gene for a fluorescent protein, creating a hybrid gene encoding a green-glowing VAMP.
They then inserted this hybrid gene into mutant fruit fly germ cells that lacked the exu gene.
