Analysis in silico of the single nucleotide polymorphism G–152A in the promoter of the angiotensinogen gene of Indonesian patients with essential hypertension

Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are estimated to occur in 1 of every 1,000 nucleotides in the human genome [ 1 , 2 ]. Depending on where a SNP occurs, it might have various consequences at the phenotypic level. SNPs that alter the function or structure of the encoded proteins are a necessary and sufficient cause of most of the known recessively or dominantly inherited monogenic disorders. These SNPs are found in the coding regions of genes and are routinely analyzed for medical purposes [ 3 ]. SNPs in the promoter region of genes affect the

Single nucleotide polymorphisms in genes MACC1, RAD18, MMP7 and SDF-1a as prognostic factors in resectable colorectal cancer

practice. 16 , 17 Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are molecular factors that might be useful as prognostic markers in CRC. Preliminary genome wide association (GWA) study in non-caucasian population has indicated a role of SNPs in resectable CRC. 18 We hypothesized that SNPs participating in genetic risk for CRC and metastasis might prove as a prognostic factor in resectable CRC. In our study, we have selected SNPs with higher frequency in patients with either local lymph node involvement or systemic dissemination in genes participating in CRC carcinogenesis

Y Chromosome Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms Typing by SNaPshot MINISEQUENCING

Y Chromosome Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms Typing by SNaPshot MINISEQUENCING

Analysis of Y chromosome haplogroups, defined by single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), is now a standard approach for study of the origin of human populations and measurement of the variability among them. It is also a new forensic tool, because it may allow determination of the origin of any male sample of interest. We have used a strategy for rapid, simple and inexpensive Y chromosome SNP typing of 343 male DNA samples, of which 211 were Macedonians, 111 Albanians and 21 Roma, Serbs or Turks. Using multiplex polymerase chain reaction (mPCR) and a SNaPshot multiplex kit for single nucleotide extension reaction, 28 markers were grouped into five multiplexes. Twenty different Y haplogroups were found in these samples. The most common Y haplogroups in Macedonians were I2a-P37b (27.5%), E1b1b1a-M78 (15.6%), R1a1-SRY1532 (14.2%) and R1b1-P25 (11.4%). In the Albanians E1b1b1a-M78 accounted for 28.8%, R1b1-P25 for 18.0%, J2b2-M241 for 13.5% and R1a1-SRY1532 for 12.6%. We conclude that five haplogroups (E1b1b1a-M78, I2a-P37b, J2b2-M241, R1a1-SRY1532 and R1b1-P25) comprised 72.6% of the Y chromosomes, this being characteristic of the typical European Y chromosome gene pool.

Low-density genotype panel for both parentage verification and discovery in a multi-breed sheep population

be robust, technically accurate, inexpensive, and require minimal effort by producers and breeders. Moreover, the tools should ideally be such as not to stifle collaboration in (genomic) data exchange. The exploitation of genomic technologies in animal production systems is intensifying, primarily in response to improved accuracy of prediction of true genetic merit when the genotype of an animal is incorporated into genetic evaluations ( Hayes et al ., 2009 ; Spelman et al ., 2013 ). The cost of the commonly termed single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) chips

Genomic descriptors of biodiversity – A review

pedigrees is that they neither exist nor are accurate for many of the livestock breeds, which negates or seriously hampers any effort to assess genetic diversity. With the availability of molecular markers such as microsatellites, and more recently single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) and whole genome sequence data, it is possible to analyze diversity on a genomic level. The dense marker genotypes negate the necessity to have historical records, and thus, all problems associated with pedigrees. It allows a more precise assessment of relatedness accounting for Mendelian
