Kanuma is produced by GE chickens containing an rDNA construct responsible for producing rhLAL protein in their egg whites.
Of the 96 blood samples, 12 from 5 prefectures (Hokkaido, Iwate, Tochigi, Nagano, and Miyazaki) were positive for Babesia rDNA (online Technical Appendix, http://wwwnc.
By DNA sequencing of the nuclear SSU rDNA and mitochondrial cytochrome C oxidase I (COX) gene, we identified the presence of 17 species of ciliates in upper Shades Creek and one of its small tributaries in Jefferson County, AL (Figure 1).
The overall sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value and negative predictive value of 16S rDNA PCR were 79.
8S-ITS2 rDNA region sequences data of the reference strains which found identical to the isolated strains were used.
Oligonucleotide primers designed to complement an internal fragment of the 18S rDNA gene sequence from Arabidopsis thaliana [39] were used to produce a 1.
Data obtained on the presence of variant classes of 5S rDNA are rather common, and this may be detected in distinct portions of the genome (multiple and different chromosome localizations), forming differential sets of these sequences repeated in tandem (Martins and Wasko, 2004).
Whereas 16S rDNA sequences are highly conserved, the genome of some bacterial species harbors multiple copies of the ribosomal operon.
Together, primers GM5F-GC and S-*-Univ-0907-b-A-20 amplify bacterial small-subunit (SSU) rDNA in the region corresponding to positions 357-907 in Escherichia coli to produce a 550-bp fragment (not including the GC-clamp).

Such policies will ensure safety while allowing plant developers to utilize rDNA technology.
The rDNA produces characteristic patterns on the gels that vary according to the strain of fungus the DNA came from.
