The protein truncation test is currently the fastest method in general use for detecting previously unidentified truncating mutations in tumor suppressor genes. In addition, by only identifying disease-causing truncation mutations, PTT analysis is not hampered by false-positive signals derived from phenotypically silent variants such as polymorphisms. Finally, the size of the truncated product localizes the DNA mutation and thus enhances sequence analysis for confirmation. In recent years, the identification of truncating mutations in tumor suppressor genes has greatly benefited from PTT. Improvements in the PTT, such as ELISA-PTT,[9] multicolor-PTT,[12] and mass spectrometry-based PTT,[14] should allow this method to gain wider acceptance.

Getting Started With Dumbbells

Getting Started With Dumbbells

The use of dumbbells gives you a much more comprehensive strengthening effect because the workout engages your stabilizer muscles, in addition to the muscle you may be pin-pointing. Without all of the belts and artificial stabilizers of a machine, you also engage your core muscles, which are your body's natural stabilizers.
