Evaluation of the GTI-ASP-1 platelet antigen genotyping kit for the determination of the HPA-1 genotype

The human platelet antigen system HPA-1 is involved in most cases of neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia and posttransfusion purpura, and occasionally causes refractoriness to platelet transfusions. Complete concordance was obtained in genotyping for HPA-1 in all samples tested with the HPA-1 genotyping kit and a ligation-based typing method. However, the genotyping kit is less sensitive than ligation-based typing, which could be of importance when testing cells from amnionic fluid or from

New ABO intron 1 variant alleles

Genetic variants that lead to altered expression of ABO antigens have been found within the coding sequence, splice junctions, proximal promoter, and intron 1 enhancer of ABO transferase genes. ABO intron 1 spans 13 kb (approximately two-thirds of the gene’s length) and harbors variants at sequences that play a role in either mRNA maturation or the enhancement of transcription: in particular, variants near exon 1 that alter the donor splice site and variants in the enhancer element located 5.7

Although few studies show a link between cognitive dysfunction and type 1 diabetes, the majority of research has concluded that this correlation between diabetes and AD is particular to people with type 2 diabetes (Li et al., 2015). Studies in recent decades have shown that insulin resistance and insulin deficiency occurs in the brain in both type 2 diabetes and AD resulting in cognitive dysfunction and AD. Elevated blood sugar causes inflammation, and this inflammation may damage neurons, deteriorate

Comparison of human platelet antigen (HPA)-1a typing by solid phase red cell adherence to HPA-1 allotypes determined by allelespecific restriction enzyme analysis

Phenotype results for human platelet antigen (HPA)-1 by CaptureP®‚ (Immucor, Inc., Norcross, GA) solid phase red cell adherence (SPRCA) were compared to results of allele-specific restriction enzyme analysis (ASRA) for the determination of HPA-1 allotype. Because the expression of HPA-1a and HPA-1b is determined by a single nucleotide substitution of thymine‘cytosine at position 196 of the gene encoding membrane glycoprotein (GP)-IIIa, it is possible to distinguish the alternate

Assessment of type 1 and type 3 deiodinase expression levels in depressive disorders

A depressive disorder is a disease characterized by a heterogenous background. The important processes observed and diagnosed in depressed patients indicate that the etiology of depression may include disturbances in thyroid hormone (TH) levels and the occurrence of immune-inflammatory activation. Type 1 (DIO1) and type 3 (DIO3) iodothyronine deiodinases are the enzymes which determine the peripheral and tissue levels of TH, but also interfere with immunological cells and inflammatory processes

anemia (AIHA). Complement receptor 1 (CR1) is a large single-pass glycoprotein that is expressed on a variety of cell types in blood, including RBCs and immune cells. Among its multiple functions is its ability to inhibit complement activation. Furthermore, gene knockout studies in mice implicate a role for CR1 (along with the alternatively spliced gene product CR2) in prevention of autoimmunity. This review discusses the possibility that the CR1 protein may be manipulated to prevent and treat AIHA

Rat white matter injury model induced by endothelin-1 injection: technical modification and pathological evaluation

White matter injury is an important cause of functional disability of the brain. We comprehensively analyzed a modified endothelin-1 (ET-1) injection-induced white matter injury model in the rat which is very valuable for investigating the underlying mechanisms of subcortical ischemic stroke. ET-1 was stereotactically injected into the internal capsule of the rat. To avoid complications with leakage of ET-1 into the lateral ventricle, the safest trajectory angle to the target was established

Whether or not patients whose red blood cells (RBCs) carry certain weak D types  produce anti-D, and if they do whether it is  allo- or autoanti-D, remains controversial. The aim of this study was to determine the serologic features of anti-D in individuals expressing a weak D other than type 1 or type 2 and to assess whether the anti-D was an allo- or autoantibody. Serologic D typing and molecular analyses were performed on 748 individuals. Serologic characterization of anti-D

For most children the source of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection is an adult immediate family member living in the same household: the closer and longer contact with a TB patient, the higher risk of M. tuberculosis infection.

Differentially Marked IncP-1β R751 Plasmids for Cloning via Recombineering and Conjugation

IncP-1 plasmids have facilitated numerous studies on the promiscuous nature of plasmid-based genetic elements in nature and have allowed broad range transfer of genes across a variety of cell types (Trieu-Cuot et al. 1987; Heinemann and Sprague 1989; Pansegrau et al. 1994; Thorsted et al. 1998; Waters 2001). The IncP-1 group is divided into five subgroups termed α, β, δ, ε, and γ based largely on phylogenetic analysis (Pansegrau et al. 1994; Thorsted et al. 1998; Norberg et al. 2011; Sen et al

Field testing on non-target effects of these nematicides, relative to each other, in tomato production would aid growers in deciding what chemistries to deploy, particularly when target efficacy of nematicides under consideration is similar. Based on these needs, the objectives of this research were to assess fluopyram, oxamyl, and 1,3-D for (1) SRKN management, and (2

Class II division 1 malocclusion treatment with extraction of maxillary first permanent molars: cephalometric evaluation of treatment and post-treatment changes

Introduction A Class II division 1 malocclusion is a common indication for orthodontic treatment. The orthodontist faces many challenges when deciding between early or late treatment, one- or two-phase treatment, extraction or non-extraction therapy, dentoalveolar compensation or possibly jaw orthopaedics, and orthognathic surgery. Treatment options also are based on patient age at referral, malocclusion severity, the maxillofacial growth pattern, patient expectations, and the current state of

Of 82 samples analyzed, 74 were O1O1, 7 were O1O2 , and 1 was O2O2. These results showed the frequency of O1O1 , O1O2, and O2O2 genotypes to be 90.24 percent, 8.53 percent, and 1.22 percent, respectively, in blood donors in São Paulo, Brazil.

Anti-A1Leb: a mind boggler

The Lewis blood group system (Le) is unique because it is the only system in which the antigens are not synthesized by red blood cells (RBCs); rather, the antigens are passively adsorbed onto the RBC membrane.1 Le antigens are soluble carbohydrate moieties formed by tissue cells and secreted by body secretions like saliva, where they appear as glycoproteins; in plasma, however, they appear as glycolipids. The Le phenotype depends on ABH secretor status of an individual, although FUT2 and FUT3

This study modified the current adsorption method to reduce total adsorption time to 1 hour. A ratio of one part serum to three parts red blood cells (RBCs; 1:3 method) was maintained for all samples. The one part serum was split into three tubes.
