Additionally, we observed that the lack of Igf2as transcripts in placenta did not produce significant changes in Igf2 variants expression levels compared to wild type with the exception for Igf2 variant 3 at E16.
Sensitivity of Wild Types and Fluoroquinolone-Resistant Mutants to Antimicrobial Agents and Ethidium Bromide.
For comparing the expressions of the genes in the wild types and the mutant strains, the mean expression of each of the genes in the mutants was divided by the mean expression of the same gene in the wild type 21].
They first added chloroquine directly to individual DRG neurons from both knockout and wild type animals and used a fluorescent dye to see if the cells responded.
Then the team measured chlororquine-induced electrical activity in the neurons, noting that the wild type responded but that the knockouts remained completely "silent."
For example, the [T.sub.m]s of the variants for exons 15 and 14 are close to wild type in a derivative plot, but demonstrate clearer distinction of sequence variation in the fluorescence difference plot (Fig.
More specifically, in 15 pairs of isogenic hybrids, the grain yield of [bm.sub.3] maize was 20% less than the wild type (Lee and Brewbaker, 1984).
Control samples for the wild type, heterozygotes, homozygotes, and no-target blanks (provided with the assay) were run with the test samples with expected results.
The total number of capsules per plant was about half that of the common types, 1000-seed weight was reduced (9 g), and mutant plants had reduced height compared with wild types.
The significance values are shown for comparison of either C282Y/wt or C282Y/ H63D genotypes to the wild type.
CPR-1, CPR-2, and CPR-5 have ~310 g [kg.sup.-1] less 10:0 than the wild type and comprise one group (Table 1).
Comparisons of serum iron and red cell indices for the C282Y/wt and C282Y/H63D genotypes with the wild type in the group over 51 years of age are shown in Table 3.
