Study protocol:

1. Using Qiagen kit to extract the genomic DNA of 200 microliters of blood.

2. UV spectrophotometer test DNA purity of 260/280 close to 1.8 (1.8 ± 0.05), the concentration of 100ng/μL or more before the next sequencing.

3. The extracted genomic DNA will be sent to Sangon Biology Engineering Limited Company (Shanghai) and sequenced to find candidate mutations related to ADHD risk sequence. According to NIH gene database, the longest transcript of NDRG2 (ID: 57447 gene, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nuccore/NC_000014.9?

Study protocol:

1. Using Qiagen kit to extract the genomic DNA of 200 microliters of blood. (1) melt frozen blood at room temperature; (2) take the blood of 0.2 ml into a sterile anti coagulation centrifuge tube, add an equal volume of PBS phosphate buffer, after fully mixing 12000rpm centrifugation 5min, discard supernatant; (3) 66.7 L STE 2.4 L, 20% SDS, 37 DEG C water bath 1h; (4) protease K plus 1 20mg/ml l mix, 55 DEG C water bath digestion overnight (10 ~ 14h); (5) the digested samples treated with Tris saturated phenol, shake well, 12000rpm centrifugal 10min; (6) the upper aqueous phase to a sterile centrifuge tube; adding volume of Tris saturated phenol, shake well, 12000rpm centrifugal 10min; (7) the upper aqueous phase was transferred to another sterile centrifuge tube, and an equal volume of phenol was added: chloroform: isoamyl alcohol (25: 24: 1). The oscillation of the vortex was fully mixed, and the 12000rpm was centrifuged to 10min; (8) the upper aqueous phase was transferred to another sterile centrifuge tube, and an equal volume of chloroform was added: iso amyl alcohol (24: 1), which was fully vibrated and mixed with 12000rpm centrifugation 10min; (9) transfer the supernatant to another sterile centrifuge tube; adding 2 times volume ethanol, the volume level of sodium acetate 1/10 shake, until the flocculent precipitation of DNA visible; (10) the sample is placed at -20 DEG C refrigerator freezer 30min or ice bath for 15 ~ 20min, after removal of 12000rpm centrifugal 10min again, so that DNA precipitation; (11) the gun head will pick DNA to another sterile centrifugal tube, with the amount of 70% ethanol washing and shaking, to wash out impurities DNA; (12) out of ethanol, DNA by vacuum drying or dry naturally, TE buffer adding dissolution, -20 stored at standby.

2. UV spectrophotometer test DNA purity of 260/280 close to 1.8 (1.8 ± 0.05), the concentration of 100ng/μL or more before the next sequencing.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The GENETIC TRANSLATION product from a GENE FUSION between a sequence from the tpr protein gene on the human CHROMOSOME 1 and the gene for PROTO-ONCOGENE PROTEINS C-MET.

Processes occurring in various organisms by which new genes arise, i.e. the duplication of a single gene. In contiguous gene duplication, the duplicated sequence coexists within the boundaries set by the start and stop signals for protein synthesis of the original, resulting in a larger transcription product and protein at the expense of the preexisting protein. In discrete gene duplication, the duplicated sequence is outside the start and stop signals, resulting in two independent genes (GENES, DUPLICATE) and gene products. Gene duplication may result in a MULTIGENE FAMILY; supergenes or PSEUDOGENES. (Rieger et al., Glossary of Genetics: Classical and Molecular, 5th ed)

Contiguous large-scale (1000-400,000 basepairs) differences in the genomic DNA between individuals, due to SEQUENCE DELETION; SEQUENCE INSERTION; or SEQUENCE INVERSION.

Proteins containing a region of conserved sequence, about 200 amino acids long, which encodes a particular sequence specific DNA binding domain (the T-box domain). These proteins are transcription factors that control developmental pathways. The prototype of this family is the mouse Brachyury (or T) gene product.

Hybridization of a nucleic acid sample to a very large set of oligonucleotide probes, which are attached to a solid support, to determine sequence or to detect variations in a gene sequence or expression or for gene mapping.
