[FIGURE 2 OMITTED] To compare the cultured virus to the inoculum, a partial fragment of the open reading frame 2 of HEV extracted from culture subsamples (dpi 16, dpi 55; progeny subsample at dpi 35) was sequenced as described (10).
The introduction of exon skipping to restore the open reading frame using splice-switching oligomers targeting dystrophin exons is one of several attractive therapeutic strategies for Duchenne muscular dystrophy being pioneered by MDA-funded investigators.
Degussa AG (Dusseldorf, Germany) has patented Coryneform bacteria which have, in addition to at least one copy, present at the natural site (locus), of an open reading frame (ORF), gene or allele which codes for the synthesis of a protein or an RNA, in each case a second, optionally third or fourth copy of this open reading frame (ORF), gene or allele at in each case a second, optionally third or fourth site in a form integrated into the chromosome and processes for the preparation of chemical compounds by fermentation of these bacteria.
