Authentication of fusion genes in chronic myeloid leukemia

Chronic myeloid leukemia is a multifactorial molecular anomaly that confounds the standardization of therapy to date. It is triggered by a broad spectrum of “fused oncoproteins” which are entailed in the disease refractoriness. In Pakistan the molecular diagnosis for leukemia is still in its infancy, as the diagnosis does not efficiently encompass a wide range of the fusion transcripts which are generated as...

Sourcing starter cultures for Parkia biglobosa fermentation I: Phylogenic grouping of Bacillus species from commercial ‘iru’ samples

Twenty five isolates of Bacillus species were obtained from ten commercial samples of ‘iru’ (fermented African locust bean), after heat-treatment at 80°C for 30 min. All the isolates were Gram-positive, spore-former, catalase-positive, non-motile rods. The phylogenic relationship between the isolates was studied by repetitive PCR fingerprinting using the (GTG)5 primer, referred to as (GTG)5-PCR...

Genetic polymorphism of growth hormone locus and its association with bodyweight in Grati dairy cows

The aim of this research was to study genetic polymorphism in growth hormone (GH) locus and its association with body weight of 43 Grati dairy cows ranging from 2 to 4 years old. Polymorphism of GH locus was ascribed using  a PCR-RFLP method involving restricted enzyme Msp1 on 2% agarose gel. All data were subjeced to statistical analysis based on one way classification model using a statistical software package of...
