Extended linkage disequilibrium in noncoding regions in a conifer, Cryptomeria japonica.
ABSTRACT We measured linkage disequilibrium in mostly noncoding regions of Cryptomeria japonica, a conifer belonging to Cupressaceae. Linkage disequilibrium was extensive and did not decay even at a distance of 100 kb. The average estimate of the population recombination rate per base pair was 1.55 × 10(-5) and was <1/70 of that in the coding regions. We discuss the impact of low recombination rates in a large part of the genome on association studies.
Article: Magnetically connected removable sectional denture for a maxillary defect with severe undercut: a clinical report.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: A removable sectional denture connected by a cobalt-samarium magnetic retention system ( Hicorex for a patient with a severe maxillary defect was described. After an observation period of 5 years, the obturator continues to function, with no deleterious effects resulting from the use of prosthetic components. This magnetic retention system is considered to be clinically useful for interrelating and retaining a sectional prosthesis parts.Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry 08/2000; 84(1):22-6. · 1.32 Impact Factor
