With its full repertoire of human immunoglobulin variable regions expressed from chemically synthesized chimeric gene segments, we believe the platform will prove highly productive for Achaogen.
Chimeric gene was designed based on the nucleotide sequence of ltb, cssA and cssB genes (Gen Bank accession numbers; M17874.
The defective CYP21A2 (1) (cytochrome P450, family 21, subfamily A, polypeptide 2) genes downstream of the TNXB (tenascin XB) gene in congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) (2) fall into 3 categories: (a) small-scale conversions from the CYP21A1P (cytochrome P450, family 21, subfamily A, polypeptide 1 pseudogene) gene, (b) spontaneous mutations, and (c) chimeric RCCX modules that include the chimeric CYP21A1P/CYP21A2 genes and chimeric genes of TNXA [tenascin XA (pseudogene)] and TNXB (1).
Key to development of this new chimeric gene and recombinant protein is the researchers' finding that the hLH-R and hCG-B-CTP recombinant proteins are antigenic-meaning that they can produce an immune response in the body, and produce bifunctional antibodies with dual effect.
A chimeric gene consisting of the coding sequence for chloroplast FeSOD from Arabidopsis thaliana, coupled with the chloroplast targeting sequence from the pea RU1,5,DP carboxylase/oxygenase small subunit, was expressed in N.
In addition, an uncommon chimeric gene, CH-4, has been identified.
9) The aberrations inv(16) and t(16; 16) lead to fusion of CBFB on 16q22 with smooth muscle myosin heavy-chain gene (MYH11) on 16q13, leading to formation of CBFB/MYH11 chimeric gene.
The expression system includes a protein expression vector that contains a chimeric gene encoding a chimeric protein.
3,4] The c-abl and breakpoint cluster genes are juxtaposed in a head-to-tail configuration, creating a chimeric gene that is transcribed to an 8.
This observation is in agreement with the mechanism of chimeric gene formation that has been proposed for this region (5).
The invention also relates to the construction of a chimeric gene encoding all or a portion of the enzyme involved in lipid biosynthesis, in sense or antisense orientation, wherein expression of the chimeric gene results in production of altered levels of the enzyme involved in lipid biosynthesis in a transformed host cell.
Southern blot analysis revealed that 5 individuals had only 1 copy of the CYP21A2 gene, due to gene deletion or to CYP21A2/CYP21A1P chimeric gene formation.
University of Texas (Austin, TX) and University of Florida (Gainesville, FL) have patented a method for using a chimeric gene that, when incorporated into an appropriate host, results in the overproduction of S-adenosylmethionine without the need to supply the host with a source of untransformed methionine.
The invention also relates to the construction of a chimeric gene encoding all or a portion of the gene involved in petroselinic acid biosynthesis, in sense or antisense orientation, wherein expression of the chimeric gene results in production of altered levels of the gene involved in petroselinic acid biosynthesis in a transformed host cell.
This allele carries a single nonfunctional chimeric gene with its 5' and 3' ends corresponding to CYP21P and CYP21, respectively (9).
