Sample text

Complementary DNAs are made from mRNAs, prepared from the tissue of interest, and then propagated in vitro to form cDNA libraries. A gene probe is a fragment of DNA that detects its complementary sequence. Often such cDNA probes are produced from animal protein, and for most diseases they are not specifically related to a disease gene, but may be linked to it genetically. The ‘lod’ score refers to the ‘log of the odds’ and expresses the relative probability that two loci are linked as opposed to not linked.

This shows glutamate released by fusion of transmitter vesicles at the nerve terminal and diffusing across the synaptic cleft to activate AMPA and NMDA receptors. Glutamate also binds to metabotropic G-protein-coupled glutamate receptors, initiating secondary messenger intracellular signalling through the G-protein complex (Webster, 2002) 14 Biological Psychiatry Calcium has been shown to be essential for transmitter release. During depolarization of the presynaptic terminal the calcium channels open and calcium moves into the cell.

When found, the chromosome on which the abnormal gene resides can be identified, and the linked marker, which may be the gene itself, is used to detect genotypes likely to become phenotypes. There have been three generations of marker loci used for genetic linkage mapping. The first was the RFLPs described above, followed by the micro-satellites. More recently the single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs, pronounced ‘snips’) have been used for the same purpose of tracking genetic variants in pedigrees.
