Disease relevance of EPPS

  • All 10 ectopic pregnancies, six of which were detected by EPPS and are included in the aforementioned sensitivity and specificity analysis, plus four detected by NEPPPS, were correctly identified; none was missed [1].
  • An atypical case of the rare genodermatosis erythrokeratodermia progressiva partim symmetrica (EPPS) with deafness and myopathy is described [2].

Psychiatry related information on EPPS


High impact information on EPPS

  • PCR error was measured in low |Deltap K a| buffers containing tricine, EPPS and citrate, as well as otherwise identical buffers containing Tris [6].
  • The chamber medium was adjusted to a physiologic pH of 7.35 by a mixture of N-(2-hydroxyethyl)piperazine-N'-(3-propanesulfonic acid) (EPPS) and 2,2-bis(hydroxymethyl)-2,2'2"-nitrilotriethanol (BISTRIS) [7].
  • RESULTS: The optimum pH of this method was 7.8, and 3-[4-(2-hydroxyethyl)-1-piperazinyl] propanesulfonic acid (EPPS) buffer solution was selected [8].
  • They have been based on non-equilibrium pH gradient electrophoresis and on the addition of chemical spacers (EPPS for PGM1 and HEPES for EsD) to the gel mixture [9].
  • Group profile results on the EPPS indicated relatively high scores on the variables of achievement, exhibition, autonomy, dominance, and heterosexuality; and relatively low scores on the variables of deference, order, and endurance [10].

Associations of EPPS with chemical compounds

  • Mean EPPS scores for 20 male alcoholics at an outpatient clinic were found to be significantly higher than scores of Edwards' General Adult Sample of men on Heterosexuality, but significantly lower on Deference, Order, Affiliation, and Endurance [11].
