Additional evidence for the placental adaption was provided by showing lower expression of the transplacental calcium transfer protein calbindin-D9K in Igf2 [P0.sup.+/-] at E17 but not at E19 compared to that of wild types [11].
The expression of these genes is studied in wild type placentas and in [DELTA]DMR1-U2 placentas which are lacking Igf2 P0 and Igf2as expression.
The wild types and mutants from BHI tubes (Table 1) were grown on blood agar plates.
Comparison of the Effects of Dipeptides on Wild Types and Resistant Strains.
Then they injected histamine into the mice to induce itch-again, the knockouts and the wild types behaved similarly, scratching at the same rates during five-minute intervals over the course of 30 minutes.
Eighty samples, derived from the 5 wild types and 30 variant RET samples, were blinded and genotyped for exons 10, 11, 13, 14, and 16.
Maturity of the bmr-12 near-isolines averaged 4 d later than the wild types and 3 d later than bmr-6 near-isolines (Table 1).
The NanoChip microelectronic array technology for analysis of the FVL SNP provides extremely high accuracy, readily discriminating between wild types, heterozygotes, and homozygotes, as confirmed by comparison with DNA sequencing.
Multicarpellate mutants (mcp, idmcp, idmcpvir) have a mixture of 3-seeded (51.1%), 4-seeded (46.8%), and 5-seeded (0.3%) capsules instead of the 100% 3-seeded capsules of wild types. No differences in plant growth or flowering were detected between the mutants and wildtypes.
The prevalences of wild types (wt/wt), heterozygotes (C282Y/wt), compound heterozygotes (C282Y/H63D), and homozygotes (C282Y/C282Y) for the C282Y mutation are shown in Table 1.
The capric acid distribution for CPR-1 x CPR-2 [F.sub.2] progeny was continuous, leptokurtic, and unimodal and produced no wild types and no phenotypes different from either parent.
The prevalences of the wild types (wt/wt), heterozygotes (C282Y/wt), compound heterozygotes (C282Y/H63D), and homozygotes (C282Y/C282Y) for the C282Y mutation in the overall study population and the two age groups are shown in Table 1.
