These 38 clones were either sequenced previously and the results published, or the sequences were obtained in this work and submitted to GenBank. The accession numbers from GenBank are provided in Table 1.
For comparison, the growth hormone gene of the domestic dog contains about 63.3% G+C nucleotides (GenBank: U92533.1), in pig it is ca 61% (Rothschild and Ruvinsky, 2011), llama about 59.4% (GenBank: HM921333.1), and for carp and tench about 39.8% (GenBank: JX392402.1, GenBank: HM114351.1).
According to the sequence of the RCCX region among CYP21P, TNXA, RP2, C4B, CYP21, and TNXB obtained from GenBank (accession nos.
The extra-nuclear mitochondrial (mt) DNA genome has been particularly valuable, as more than a decade of molecular systematic work has provided an extensive database ("GenBank") of molecular "type" sequences for many species of marine sharks, fish, and mammals (Wheeler et al., 2000; Benson et al., 2000).
The B112 protein is apparently the same as an uncharacterized protein known as CtIP, the sequence of which was previously deposited in GenBank. Screenings of a panel of 92 tumor cell lines for mutations in the B112/CtIP sequence have identified a number of missense variants, including a non-conserved lysine to glutamic acid change at codon 337 in the pancreatic cancer line, BxPC3.
The GenBank DNA database, the public data repository for DNA sequences managed by the National Center for Biotechnology Information in Bethesda, Md., already contains sequences from 62,000 species of animals, plants, bacteria, and viruses, and more are added every day, says the center's Dennis A.
The DNA sequence retrieved was identical in both animals (GenBank accession no.
In all, 74 sequences were analyzed (BLAST (N) search of the GenBank non-redundant database) (Table 1).
Lapedes also says his group has beenasked to use the neural net to check some of the experimental data being collected for GenBank, a DNA library administered by Los Alamos.
We made comparisons to sequences in GenBank with BLASTn 2.2.26 (https://pods.iplantcollaborative.org/wiki/display/DEapps/Blastn-2.2.26).
Included among the databases on offer are GenBank, the Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man, the Cancer Genome Anatomy Project, and numerous organism-specific genome databases.
