The 'atypical' pathogens are important causes of pneumonia, causing illness ranging from mild to life-threatening. The most common atypical pathogens are Mycoplasma pneumoniae and Chlamydia pneumoniae; others include Legionella species, Chlamydia…

We have recently cloned a full-length cDNA encoding the rat hepatic cholesterol 7 alpha-hydroxylase cytochrome P450 (P450c7) (Li, Y. C., Wang, D. P., and Chiang, J. Y. L. (1990) J. Biol. Chem. 265, 12012-12019), which catalyzes the rate-limiting…

Human liver cholesterol 7 alpha-hydroxylase (CYP7) cDNAs were isolated from a human liver cDNA library. A full-length cDNA has 2901 nucleotides which encode a typical P450 polypeptide of 504 amino acid residues. Two different sequences of codon 100,…

RNA extracted from rabbit leukocytes and reticulocytes was reverse transcribed and used in the Polymerase Chain Reaction technique along with primers designed to amplify the coding sequence of rabbit cytochrome b5. The resultant amplified products…

The utility of diagnostic studies to determine the etiologic agents of community-acquired pneumonia has been controversial in part because of the lack of rapid, accurate, easily performed, and cost-effective methods. Advancements in molecular testing…

We have previously shown that the ethanol-mediated elevation of lipocaline-2 (LCN2) is closely associated with the development of alcoholic fatty liver disease (AFLD) in mice. Herein, we aimed to understand the functional significance of LCN2…

Using a combination of standard cDNA library screening techniques and the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) we have isolated and sequenced DNA fragments corresponding to the human reticulocyte cytochrome b5 mRNA. The reticulocyte specific sequence…

Using very high stringency hybridization conditions for the Southern blot hybridization analysis of hamster-human cell hybrid DNA, we were able to map the human cytochrome b5 gene and two of its pseudogenes (psgb(5)1 and psgb(5)2) unambiguously to…

We have analyzed reticulocyte and leukocyte mRNAs isolated from a patient with congenital methemoglobinemia and pseudohermaphrodism. The cytochrome b5 cDNA sequences were amplified using specific oligonucleotide primers and the polymerase chain…

Human papillomavirus (HPV) type 18 DNA was found in an aggressively invasive adenocarcinoma tumor from a woman who had an intact hymen and denied any prior sexual intercourse. The viral DNA was detected within the tumor tissue by polymerase chain…

The influence of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) upon the nigrostriatal dopaminergic system was evaluated in weanling and adult mice carrying a targeted inactivated BDNF gene. Regional specificity of this BDNF mutation was assessed by…

From a series of lambda and cosmid libraries, we isolated DNA sequences corresponding to the complete coding region for the human cytochrome b5 (CYB5) gene. The overall gene organization was the same as the bovine and rabbit CYB5 genes. One cosmid…
