Comparing real-time PCR and Calcofluor-white with conventional methods for rapid detection of dermatophytes: Across-sectional study.

In this study, the performance of conventional methods, Calcofluor-white, and Real-time PCR methods were compared to establish an effective method for screening dermatomycosis. Our results showed exce...

Transposable Elements: Classification, Identification, and Their Use As a Tool For Comparative Genomics.

Most genomes are populated by hundreds of thousands of sequences originated from mobile elements. On the one hand, these sequences present a real challenge in the process of genome analysis and annota...

Development and Application of Real-Time and Conventional SSR-PCR Assays for Rapid and Sensitive Detection of Associated with Ascochyta Blight of Dry Pea.

is the primary causal pathogen of Ascochyta blight (AB) of dry pea in Montana. Diagnosis of AB is challenging because there are six different species that cause AB worldwide and that can co-occur. Add...

Zinc-Adeninate Metal-Organic Framework: A Versatile Photoluminescent Sensor for Rare Earth Elements in Aqueous Systems.

Rare earth elements (REEs) are strategically important for national security and advanced technologies. Consequently, significant effort has been devoted towards increasing REE domestic production, in...

A method for early detection and identification of fungal contamination of building materials using e-nose.

The aim of the study was to develop a method for early detection and identification of fungal contamination of building materials using an electronic nose. Therefore, the laboratory experiments based ...

Systemic Fungal Infections in ICU Patients

This study aims to : 1. Diagnosis of Systemic fungal infections in ICU patients. 2. Detection the most common fungal species in ICU. 3. Detection of in vitro antifungal sens...

Evaluation of NGS for Detection and Follow-up of Fungal Pathogens in Immunocompromised Pediatric Patients

We hypothesize that Next-generation Sequencing (NGS) can identify fungal pathogens, is more accurate than other noninvasive options and can report fungal genomic load.

Rapid Detection of Staphylococcus Aureus in Burn Patients

The purpose of this study is to determine if rapid early detection of the bacteria causing sepsis in burn patients improves patient outcomes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Discrete segments of DNA which can excise and reintegrate to another site in the genome. Most are inactive, i.e., have not been found to exist outside the integrated state. DNA transposable elements include bacterial IS (insertion sequence) elements, Tn elements, the maize controlling elements Ac and Ds, Drosophila P, gypsy, and pogo elements, the human Tigger elements and the Tc and mariner elements which are found throughout the animal kingdom.

A member of the CELF PROTEINS family which binds GU rich elements (GREs) and CUG-triplet repeats in the 3'UTR of mammalian mRNA transcripts that undergo rapid turnover. It also binds AU-rich elements (AREs or EDEN-like) in the 3'UTR of JUN and FOS mRNAs. Mutations in the human CELF1 gene are associated with MYOTONIC DYSTROPHY type 1.

Copies of transposable elements interspersed throughout the genome, some of which are still active and often referred to as "jumping genes". There are two classes of interspersed repetitive elements. Class I elements (or RETROELEMENTS - such as retrotransposons, retroviruses, LONG INTERSPERSED NUCLEOTIDE ELEMENTS and SHORT INTERSPERSED NUCLEOTIDE ELEMENTS) transpose via reverse transcription of an RNA intermediate. Class II elements (or DNA TRANSPOSABLE ELEMENTS - such as transposons, Tn elements, insertion sequence elements and mobile gene cassettes of bacterial integrons) transpose directly from one site in the DNA to another.

A mitosporic fungal genus causing opportunistic infections, endocarditis, fungemia, and white PIEDRA.

Detection of drugs that have been abused, overused, or misused, including legal and illegal drugs. Urine screening is the usual method of detection.
