To find the variations in OGT between European and Chinese pig breeds, attempts were made to amplify across several relatively short introns, including intron 20 of OGT, based on the porcine OGT cDNA sequence (GenBank accession no.
The intron 3 VNTR variant in the XRCC4 gene showed an association with RA patients while no association was identified between the eNOS and RA.
Examining the set of 7 unique identified novel HLA-A alleles, polymorphisms were found within intron 1 (n = 1), intron 3 (n = 3), intron 5 (n = 1), and intron 6 (n = 2).

INTRON A is a recombinant version of naturally occurring alpha interferon, which has been shown to exert both antiviral and immunomodulatory effects.
The sustained response rate increases from 12% with Intron alone to 41% when ribavirin is added, so it would seem logical that it would help to add ribavirin to PEG-Intron.
Group I intron encoded endonuclease site" is interpreted to mean a segment of DNA having a sequence that is recognized by a Group I intron encoded endonuclease and, as shown in Figure 6 of the '605 patent, that includes the insertion site for the corresponding Group I intron.
We demonstrated that the first intron of the porcine [beta]-casein gene contains a transcriptional promoter/enhancer sequence and that lactogenic expression of the porcine [beta]-casein gene was probably regulated by the first intron.
But we saw the RNA molecule flexing on its own, with the intron folding and unfolding in a way that brings the exons closer together, suggesting a more active role for introns," Nature quoted Walter as saying.
To test amplification efficiency, we compared quantification cycle (Cq) values for samples homozygous for intron 14 polymorphism c.
Geron Corporation (Menlo Park, CA) and University of Rochester (Rochester, NY) have patented a method of inhibiting the self-splicing of a Group I intron.
