36 Microvascular complications of impaired glucose tolerance.Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) serves as a marker for the state of insulin resistance and predicts both large- and small-vessel vascular complications, independent of a patient's progression to diabetes. Patients with IGT are at significantly increased risk for death and morbidity due to myocardia...Microcirculation; Humans2003-12-01
37 Mouse model for the delta F508 allele of cystic fibrosisThe most common cause of cystic fibrosis is a mutation that deletes phenylalanine 508 in cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). The delta F508 protein is misprocessed and degraded rather than traveling to the apical membrane. We used a novel strategy to introduce the delta F508 ...Digestive System; Disease Models, Animal; Electrolytes; Mice, Inbred C57BL1995-10
38 Multiplex solution genotyping without probes of the factor V Leiden (G1691A), Prothrombin (G20210A), and MTHFR (C677T and A1298C) mutations in one tube by single color high-resolution melting analysisThis poster describes a study which concludes that genotyping by amplicon melting is a rapid, closed-tube method for genotyping without probes that can be multiplexed. The method was successfully applied to the four most common clotting factor mutations in a single tube. The simplicity of the method...Genotyping; Amplicon Melting2005-06
