Disease relevance of Genetic Complementation Test


High impact information on Genetic Complementation Test

  • Complementation tests to mutations show that Ddc is a positional candidate gene for life span in these strains [6].
  • Quantitative complementation tests of mutations at these coregulated genes with the smi mutations showed that in most cases (67%) epistatic interactions for olfactory behavior mirrored epistasis at the level of transcription, thus identifying new candidate genes regulating olfactory behavior [7].
  • Cis-trans test shows a functional relationship between non-allelic lethal mutations in the T/t-complex [8].
  • Complementation tests showed that suppression was due to two chromosomal loci, ssp1 and ssp2 [9].
  • Moreover, the end1 mutant and all of the previously reported pep mutants, with the exception of pep4, were found to exhibit a profound vacuolar protein sorting defect, and complementation tests between the PEP, VPL VPT and END1 groups demonstrated that there are extensive overlaps between these groups [10].

Chemical compound and disease context of Genetic Complementation Test


Biological context of Genetic Complementation Test


Anatomical context of Genetic Complementation Test

  • By contrast, the closely related species D. albolineatus exhibits a uniform pattern of melanophores, and previous interspecific complementation tests identified fms as a potential contributor to this difference between species [19].
  • Even a lower amount of the env gene product almost escaping detection by the complementation test has been found in the helper-dependent virogenic H-18 cell line [20].
