Among all DNA elements (TSS, CDS, intron, 5'UTR, 3'UTR, and TTS), gene body (CDS, intron, 5'UTR, and 3' UTR) had a higher level of DNA methylation than the flanking regions of genes.
This extract is then PCR-amplified by a defined primer set directed against the conserved flanking regions.
Multiple copies of MRE in upstream flanking regions act highly cooperatively to enhance the promoter activity upon exposure to stress, i.
The amplification product which included the 16S rRNA gene region plus the flanking regions when subjected to electrophoresis against 1 kb DNA ladder appeared to be around 1861 bp which was confirmed by sequencing.
In the discovery analysis in EAs, 50Kb flanking regions were chosen.
Because sequence variability within UCEs increases with distance from the core of the targeted UCE, it suggests that Phylogenetically informative content in flanking regions can inform hypotheses spanning different evolutionary timescales.
Public databases provide a powerful resource for finding sequence similarity between flanking regions of microsatellites and conserved genomic regions in other species.
In addition to the coding region, more than 400bp of 5' flanking, and 1200bp of 3' flanking regions were sequenced.
We found that 15 of the 21 exons of the ATP7B gene have SNPs within 250 by of their 5' and 3' flanking regions in the NCBI human genome database (Fig.
The catalytic core is made sequence specific by two flanking regions that will pair in a complementary manner with nucleotides 5' and 3' of the target site.
In this case, the preference for individuals with recombination in the flanking regions of the target gene is not necessary because the criterion is the total proportion of the recipient genome.
Variations in sensitivity of this model system can also be achieved by increasing the copy number of response elements and perhaps by altering the sequence of each core consensus response element and flanking regions.
