Hyperadrenergic POTS

... identified in a kindred with hyperadrenergic POTS. These individuals have a single point mutation in the norepinephrine transporter (NET). The resultant inability to adequately clear norepinephrine produces a state of excessive sympathetic activation in response to a variety of sympathetic ...

Genetics with Mitosis and Meiosis

... the chromosomes still have sister chromatids, so you will be drawing X-shaped chromosomes. Also, since homologous chromosomes are separating, the resultant cells are 1n cells. Thus, you should draw 1n X-shaped chromosomes on each side of the dividing cell. After Meiosis I is complete, the resultant ...

Cloning with pBR322 and two restriction enzymes

... lost? e.g. cut a plasmid with EcoRI and BamHI which are 0.4kb's apart and then insert a piece of DNA for cloning which is 1.5kb's long will the resultant be 1.9kb or 1.5kb's? I have searched all my textbooks but I can only find examples where the pasmid is cut with only one restriction enzyme. ...
