The researchers found telomerase reverse transcriptase gene mutations in three of the 292 smokers with emphysema, a disease in which the air sacs in the lungs are gradually damaged, making the person increasingly more short of breath.
WarmStart RTx is an in silico-engineered thermostable reverse transcriptase, designed by our researchers for speed, sensitivity and inhibitor resistance in reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP), RT-PCR, and other applications where the detection of low-quantities of target RNA from complex sample matrices is critical.
About 10 years ago, biochemical studies in several laboratories established that AZT-resistant HIV-1 reverse transcriptase uses adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, which moves energy around inside the cell, to remove the AZT.
Then, following a short reverse transcriptase step which gives a 'jump-start' to the PCR replication process, samples are loaded into the BAX[R] System cycler/detector for processing.
Intrapartum and neonatal single-dose nevirapine are commonly used and essential in the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV in resource-poor settings, but may induce resistance to other non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors.
They recorded the incidence of myocardial infarction during the follow-up period and looked at the associations between myocardial infarction and exposure to protease inhibitors or non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors.
Viral enzymes reverse transcriptase, protease, and integrase are transcribed from which of the following genes?
Reverset was also shown to be effective in patients with virus resistant to other commonly used nucleoside analog reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs), including viruses harboring multiple thymidine analog mutations (TAMS), including the M41L and L210W mutations, and the L74V and M184V mutations.
Many people did not achieve durable virologic benefits from these drugs, mainly because they had previously taken and developed resistance to the nucleoside analog reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs).
Expression of the catalytic subunit of human telomerase reverse transcriptase independently predicts lower survival in patients who undergo curative resection for hepatic colorectal metastases, reported Julien Domont, M.
Roche announced in April that it would stop malting its nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor Hivid (ddC) and its protease inhibitor Fortovase in 2006.
In December, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Gilead Sciences announced that they will work together to develop a fixed-dose combination of Sustiva, a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor ("non-nuke"), and Truvada, a combination pill containing the nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor ("nuke") Emtriva and the nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitor Viread.
Tibotec also presented the first clinical results of a new non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI), TMC278; and data on a novel class of nucleotide-competitive reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NcRTIs).
In another type of test, RNA isolated from exposed cells was converted to cDNA and amplified by QRT-PCR (quantitative real-time reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction) to quantify gene expression.
These drugs are other nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors such as lamivudine, and nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors such as nevirapine, and protease inhibitors such as indinavir and ritonavir.
