Sensitivity Specificity False Positive And False Negative Rate Of Ttge

From our experience in the study of CFTR nuclear gene mutations, the TTGE method has a sensitivity of detecting approximately 92% of all mutations. Its specificity is estimated to be about 99%, with a false negative rate of about 1%, without any false positives.

For mitochondrial genes, 109 samples with 15 different previously identified mutations in 6 different genes were analyzed. All the mutations and status of heteroplasmy/ homoplasmy were correctly identified.[17] In the screening of unknown mtDNA mutations, some TTGE-positive DNA fragments did not show mutations upon direct DNA sequencing. This is probably a result of the limited sensitivity of DNA sequencing.

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.
