Rapid detection of H and R Panton-Valentine leukocidin isoforms in Staphylococcus aureus by high-resolution melting analysis
MetadataShow full item record
We designed a single-step, closed-tube, real-time polymerase chain reaction and high-resolution melting assay to simultaneously detect the presence of the Panton-Valentine leukocidin gene and discriminate histidine and arginine isoforms. Of 223 Staphylococcus aureus isolates from northern Australia, isoforms clustered by clonal complex (CC). All CC93 isolates harbored the arginine isoform. © 2010.

Identification and characterization of two novel and differentially expressed isoforms of human a2-and a1-globin genesGhassemifar, Reza; Forster, L.; Qadah, T.; Finlayson, J. (2012)In most references, the transcription initiation site for the a2-and a1-globin genes has been described to lie 37 bp upstream of the translation initiation codon, however, a review of data repositories such as GenBank and ...
Genome-level identification of cell wall invertase genes in wheat for the study of drought toleranceWebster, H.; Keeble, G.; Dell, B.; Fosu-Nyarko, J.; Mukai, Y.; Moolhuijzen, Paula; Bellgard, M.; Jia, J.; Kong, X.; Feuillet, C.; Choulet, F.; Appels, R. (2012)In wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) drought-induced pollen sterility is a major contributor to grain yield loss and is caused by the downregulation of the cell wall invertase gene IVR1. The IVR1 gene catalyses the irreversible ...
