- DNA deamination enables direct PCR amplification of the cystatin B (CSTB) gene-associated dodecamer repeat expansion in myoclonus epilepsy type Unverricht-LundborgAndreas Weinhaeusel
Children s Cancer Research Institute, St Anna Children s Hospital, Vienna, Austria
Hum Mutat 22:404-8. 2003..Thus, in contrast to certain trinucleotide repeat expansion-associated diseases, such as fragile X syndrome (FRAXA) and myotonic dystrophy, methylation analyses can not be utilized for indirect diagnostic testing...
- Absence of SV40 in Austrian tumors correlates with low incidence of mesotheliomasAndreas Leithner
Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Karl Franzens University, Graz, Austria
Cancer Biol Ther 1:375-9. 2002..Our findings support the notion that: 1) polio vaccination is the main source for SV40 in human populations, 2) Austria was not exposed to SV40, and 3) its absence correlates with the low incidence of mesotheliomas in Austria...
