Genome sequencing showed that these 12 isolates were nearly identical (0-2 SNPs and 0, 1, and 12 indels all in homopolymeric runs of >4 nt) compared with the 2.
Any variant that is detected in a homopolymeric region is verified, with close attention to the corresponding negative control sample to ensure that reported frequency of the variant is adequately above background signal (noise) detected within the region of interest.
Meningitides in such a way that the gene encoding lipopolysaccharide glucose transferase enzyme loses a single cystidine residue from homopolymeric tract of 12 Cs present in coding region of the gene that inturn results in ON switch of the mentioned gene by converting the open reading frame from out-of-frame to in-frame.
Online Supplemental Table 2 shows that SNV-PER and INDEL >2-bp-PER were associated with specific sequence features, such as amplicon length, GC content, homopolymeric sequence, and SNP adjacency.
Of each resulting product, 10 [micro]l was pretreated at 95[degrees]C for 5 min, and the denatured DNA was subjected to 3'- end addition of a homopolymeric C tail using terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TaKaRa) according to the manufacturer's instructions.
These two blocks exist in SA chains as homopolymeric MM and GG blocks and heteropolymeric MG or GM blocks [13].
The macromolecular chain of sodium alginate contains both homopolymeric blocks and blocks of alternating monomeric particles sequences.
It is a heteropolysaccharide with a homopolymeric chain of 1,4,[beta]-d-xylosidic linkages with the backbone comprising of O-acetyl, [alpha]-L-arabinofuranosyl, and 1, 2-linked glucuronic or 4-O-methylglucuronic acid [3].
There are some other ways to add the 3'-terminal sequence for the first strand of the de novo cDNA synthesized which are much more efficient than homopolymeric tailing and they can be used by other scientist, but the sense of the method remains the same.
Alginates are, in fact, polymers of two uronic acids--guluronic acid (G) and mannuronic acid (M)--grouped into homopolymeric segments of guluronic (G blocks) and mannuronic acid (M blocks), respectively, and a block of alternating residues (MG blocks).
