En praktisk og Novel metode for å utvinne genomisk DNA fra Blodprøverør Kits for Plasma Protein Preservation Jon Waters1, Vishal Dhere1, Adam Benjamin1, Arvind Sekar1, Archana Kumar1, Sampath Prahalad2, David T. Okou1, Subra Kugathasan1 1Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, Department of Pediatrics, Emory University School of Medicine and Children's Health Care of Atlanta, 2Division of Rheumatology, Department of Pediatrics, Emory University School of Medicine and Children's Health Care of Atlanta Vi beskriver en ny metode for å isolere genomisk DNA fra blod samles for plasma / serologi. Etter plasma-samlingen, er den kompakterte blod vanligvis kassert. Vår nye fremgangsmåte representerer en betydelig forbedring i forhold til eksisterende metoder og gjør DNA tilgjengelig og plasma fra en enkelt kilde, uten å be om ytterligere blod.

Common NOD2 Risk Variants in African Americans with Crohn's Disease Are Due Exclusively to Recent Caucasian Admixture Inflammatory Bowel Diseases. Dec, 2012 | Pubmed ID: 22447396 Crohn's disease (CD) is highly heritable. NOD2 has emerged as the main susceptibility gene among individuals of European ancestry; however, NOD2 does not appear to contribute to CD susceptibility among many non-European populations. Today's African American (AA) population represents an admixture of West African (80%) and European (20%) ancestry. Since genotype-based tools are becoming increasingly available for CD, it is important that we validate the risk variants in different populations, such as admixed AAs.
