Disease relevance of SNORD79

  • Here, a RT-nested PCR coupled with a colorimetric plate hybridization assay was established to detect HHV-6 types A and B U79/80 mRNAs [1].

High impact information on SNORD79

  • Structure predictions of consensus sequences for the two classes of alpha-zeins, Z19 and Z22, were in good agreement with the alpha-helical contents determined by circular dichroism [2].
  • Using an e.l.i.s.a. with a monoclonal anti-(Z-DNA) antibody Z22, we found that hydralazine provoked the Z-DNA conformation in poly(dG-m5dC).poly(dG-m5dC) at 250-500 microM concentration [3].
  • The supercoiled form of hydralazine-treated plasmid bound to Z22 in a gel-retardation assay [3].
  • To develop additional cellular models for Zellweger syndrome, we produced a series of new mutant CHO cell clones in the same complementation group as Z78/C (Z2, Z7, Z22, and Z105) [4].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of SNORD79

  • The alpha zein, the maize storage prolamin, is a mixture of several homologous polypeptides that shows two bands in SDS-PAGE, called Z19 and Z22 [5].
