[1] Sequence analysis of the BCP/ PC genomic region and the preS1, preS2 and S open reading frames (ORFs) of HBV revealed that the mother's and infant's viruses had multiple signatures in common, providing evidence that their infections were indeed epidemiologically linked.

None of the dominant haploytpes included any stop codons but there were three minor haplotypes (five clones) of the nad2 locus, and two minor haplotypes (two clones) of the coI locus that had stop codons in the expected open reading frame. The remaining 212 sequences (41 DNA haplotypes) were without premature stop codons, encoding for 18 different protein sequences.

Degussa AG (Dusseldorf, Germany) has patented Coryneform bacteria which have, in addition to at least one copy, present at the natural site (locus), of an open reading frame (ORF), gene or allele which codes for the synthesis of a protein or an RNA, in each case a second, optionally third or fourth copy of this open reading frame (ORF), gene or allele at in each case a second, optionally third or fourth site in a form integrated into the chromosome and processes for the preparation of chemical compounds by fermentation of these bacteria.
