citrate synthase gene [gltA] and 16S-23S rRNA intergenic transcribed spacer region [ITS-1]) and Rickettsia spp.
If Mycoplasma species were detected, the species were identified by sequencing the 16S ribosomal (r) RNA gene and 16-23S rRNA intergenic transcribed spacer region.
A large number of polymorphisms located in noncoding regions, including promoters, 5' and 3' untranslated gene regions (UTR), introns, and intergenic portion, associated with milk production traits have been identified so far (Yudin and Voevoda, 2015).
It was located in an intergenic region between HLA-DRA and BTNL2, "which is consistent with the overall concept that there is perhaps a genetic abnormality that is leading to increased amino modulation of difficulties," Dr.
mastrevirus and begomovirus occurs very rarely and due to extreme genetic changes, intergenic recombinations are not viable and not as fit as their parents.
35) An investigation of the location of these top modulated miRNAs showed that the majority were located within their host genes, while only 6 miRNAs were intergenic (table 3).
Intergenic splicing of MDS1 and EVI1 occurs in normal tissues as well as in myeloid leukemia and produces a new member of the PR domain family.
Out of various regions of rDNA, the ITS and intergenic spacer (IGS) of the nuclear rDNA repeat units have been reported to be evolved fast and may vary among species within a genus or among populations and hence can be used for phylogenetic studies at various taxonomic levels.
Consumer growth response of selected model species (Chlamydomonas, Selenastrum, Brachionus, Diaptomus, Daphnia, Drosophila) will be measured at each level in terms of: ribosomal DNA genes and intergenic spacers; genome size; nucleic acid and protein content; cell size; body size and elemental composition; and growth rates.
These polymorphisms include 159 in or near 123 genes, and 57 in 25 intergenic regions (see Excel File S1).
In addition, 17 intergenic spacers were detected, with 11 on the heavy strand (H-strand) and 6 on the light strand (L-strand).
In principle, one can detect peptides mapping to intergenic regions suggesting novel open reading frames, or to regions currently annotated as pseudogenes and noncoding RNA.
