51 Polymerase chain reaction detection of Lyme disease: correlation with clinical manifestations and serologic responsesThe Author's have developed a simple, nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay for amplification of an outer surface protein A (OspA) gene fragment of Borrelia burgdorferi using rapid temperature cycling and ethidium bromide detection on agarose gels, and applied it to the diagnosis of Lyme dis...PCR; Rapid cycle amplification1996
52 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
53 Real time PCR assays for the detection of viral pathogens - are they the gold standard?Over the past decade, PCR testing for infectious agents in the clinical laboratory has begun to replace other methods, such as culture.
