Reduced Stutter Product Formation

Th01 Variant

The amount of stutter product formation may be reduced when using STR markers with longer repeat units, STR alleles with imperfect repeat units, and DNA polymerases with faster processivity. Several pentanucleotide repeat loci have been developed in an effort to produce STR markers that exhibit low amounts of stutter products to aid in mixture interpretation (Bacher and Schumm 1998). The first seven loci have been labeled Penta A through Penta G. Penta E has been incorporated in the GenePrint PowerPlex 2.1 system and reportedly exhibits an average stutter percentage of less than 1 (Bacher et al. 1999). Both Penta D and Penta E are part of the PowerPlex 16 kit (Krenke et al. 2002). Alleles for a STR locus that contain variations on the common repeat motif exhibit a smaller amount of stutter product formation. For example, the common repeat motif for the STR marker TH01 is AATG. However, with allele 9.3, there is an ATG nucleotide sequence present in the middle of the repeat region...

Is there a therapeutic window for emergency revascularisation

Early revascularisation should be considered as soon as possible following diagnosis of cardiogenic shock. The median time from randomisation to revascularisation was 1.4 (0.6-2.8) hours and the median time from MI to randomisation was 11 hours in the randomised SHOCK trial. However, it should be noted that patients were eligible for the trial if shock was diagnosed within 36 hours of index MI and randomisation performed within 12 hours of shock onset. There was no significant interaction between time from MI to randomisation and treatment effect. Ongoing ischaemia and stuttering necrosis are typical in the vicious cycle of ischaemia-hypoperfusion that characterise shock. Unlike primary reperfusion treatment, the window of opportunity in this setting is large. We recommend an early revascularisation strategy for shock patients up to 48 hours post-index MI and up to 18 hours post-shock. Patients who are not revascularised within 18 hours of shock onset but survive the early phase with...

Hemispheric Laterality

When fluency was induced in speakers who usually stutter, the overactivations on the right decreased or disappeared and the left hemisphere deactivations were eliminated. Stuttering research is revealing complex interactions between the hemispheres in language production, and these interactions in such a clinical population may shed light on normal functional organization.

General Comments on Laterality

Stuttering studies are linked with the lateralization of language, and theories about reasons for stuttering revolve around hemispheric interactions in language. One long-standing explanation for stuttering is that it is a result of incomplete development of left hemispheric dominance for language, and another explanation is hyperactivity of the right hemisphere (nondominant for language), specifically the premotor cortex. In one PET study, Fox found overactivation in the right hemisphere motor language areas during stuttering and deactivation of left hemisphere auditory and frontal-temporal language production systems.

Discovery Of Str Allele Mutations

The directionality of the mutation as either an expansion or a contraction of the repeat array can also vary significantly. For example, with paternal D16S539 mutations observed in 2002 there were 10 instances of allele 11 expanding to become allele 12 but only four examples of allele 11 contracting to allele 10. The process of expansion and contraction of the STR repeat regions probably occurs in a similar fashion as illustrated in Figure 6.2 for stutter product formation.

Quantitative Information From Fluorescence Measurements

Figure 7.3 illustrates how typical single-source samples differ from mixed samples in their STR profiles. STR allele peak patterns for heterozygous samples will generally have stutter products that are less than 15 of the associated allele peak height area. In addition, the peak height ratio, as measured by dividing the height of the lower quantity peak in relative fluorescence units by the height of the higher quantity allele peak, should be greater than approximately Illustration of typical single-source (a) versus mixed sample (b) heterozygote peak patterns. The relative peak areas due to the measured fluorescent signal are useful indicators to decipher the presence of a sample mixture. If the highest peak at a locus is set at 100 , then heterozygous alleles should have peak areas and peak heights that are greater than 70 of the highest alleles. Stutter products are typically less than 15 of their corresponding allele peak and shorter by four base pairs for tetranucleotide repeats....

These peak profiles assume no overlap with stutter products and homozygote alleles that possess twice the signal strength of each heterozygote allele.

Knowledge Of Results Principle See Learning Theorieslaws

The English writer Arthur Koestler (1905-1983) speculated that the ancient Greeks' humorous attitude toward the stammering barbarian - much like the primitive person's laughter over a dying animal's anguished kicking and convulsing that presumably (in the savage's perception) pretends to suffer pain - may be inspired by the conviction that the foreigner is not really human but only pretends to be. Koestler's theory of humor laughter suggests that as laughter emerged from the ancient primitive form of humor, it was so aggressive that it has been likened to a dagger. In ancient Greece, the dagger was transformed into a pen quill -dripping with poison at first and then diluted and infused later with amusing lyrical and fanciful elements. Koestler notes that the fifth century B.C. saw the first rise of humor into art, starting with parodies of Olympian heroics and reaching a peak in the comedies of Aristophanes. According to Koestler, from this point...

Epidermal Disorders Epidermolysis Bullosa Simplex

Fig. 1 Schematic structure of a prototypic keratin molecule. The central rod domain is divided into four regions, which are separated by three nonhelical short linker sequences and the stutter sequence, where helix polarity is reversed. The rod domain is flanked by the highly conserved HIM and HTM. The head and tail domains consist of extreme end domains (E1, E2), variable domains (V1, V2), and homology domains (H1, H2). In contrast with the central rod domain, head and tail domains greatly vary in structure between different keratin types.

Desirable Characteristics Of Strs Used In Forensic Dna Typing

Among the various types of STR systems, tetranucleotide repeats have become more popular than di- or trinucleotides. Penta- and hexanucleotide repeats are less common in the human genome but are being examined by some laboratories (Bacher et al. 1999). As will be discussed in Chapter 6, a biological phenomenon known as 'stutter' results when STR alleles are PCR amplified. Stutter products are amplicons that are typically one or more repeat units less in size than the true allele and arise during PCR because of strand slippage (Walsh et al. 1996). Depending on the STR locus, stutter products can be as large as 15 or more of the allele product quantity with tetranucleotide repeats. With di- and trinucleotides, the stutter percentage can be much higher (30 or more) making it difficult to interpret sample mixtures (see Chapter 7). In addition, the four base spread in alleles with tetranucleotides makes closely spaced heterozygotes easier to resolve with size-based electrophoretic...

Advantages And Disadvantages Of Snps

Second, they can be potentially multiplexed to a higher level than STRs. Third, the sample processing and data analysis may be more fully automated because a size-based separation is not needed. Fourth, there is no stutter artifact associated with each allele, which should help simplify interpretation of the allele call. Finally, the ability to predict ethnic origin and certain physical traits may be possible with careful selection of SNP markers.

Competing Response Practice

If the habit behavior occurs naturally in session (e.g., tics or stuttering), the client practices use of the competing response each time the habit occurs. The therapist praises the client for using the competing response at the appropriate time and prompts the client to use the competing response if the habit occurs but the client fails to use the competing response. This practice continues until the client reliably uses the competing response immediately contingent on the habit. The therapist also has the client practice use of the competing response contingent on the antecedents to the habit. After reviewing the antecedents with the client, the therapist instructs the client to use the competing response each time one of the antecedents occurs. If the antecedents are overt, the therapist will provide praise for correct use of the competing response or prompts to use the competing response if the client did not use it at the correct time. If the antecedents are covert, the...

Subacute Ischemic Stroke

THROMBOTIC STROKE Treatment for stable completed thrombotic stroke is largely supportive. Anticoagulation has not proven beneficial and should not be used in patients with completed strokes. The use of aspirin (300 mg day) significantly reduces the risk of recurrent ischemic stroke and death. 21 Large randomized stroke trials studying the efficacy of thrombolytic therapy within 3 to 6 h of symptom onset are currently under way. Consultation concerning heparinization should be considered in patients with stuttering or progressively worsening symptoms. Glycoprotein Ilb IIIa inhibitors, potent inhibitors of platelet aggregation, may have a future role in the treatment of subacute thrombotic stroke and are currently in clinical trials.

Match Probability Estimations

Interpretation of genotypes present in a mixture is much more complicated when the contributions of the donors is approximately equal and thus a major contributor cannot be definitively determined or when true alleles for a contributor are masked by stutter products (see Chapter 6) or other alleles in the mixture (DAB 2000). It is not always possible to unambiguously determine all

Additional Thoughts On Mixtures

Mixtures will be complicated by the fact that some loci will possess intensity differences that permit contributors to be deciphered while other loci may not be fully interpretable due to overlapping allele combinations (see Figure 7.5). With STRs and peak intensity differences, some loci may be interpretable so that contributors can be statistically treated as single sources, while other loci may be too complex to confidently attribute alleles to their sources. Thus, when performing mixture interpretation do everything possible to first eliminate artifacts such as stutter products from consideration and then interpret remaining alleles to determine how many contributors are present.

Mixture Interpretation

These include stutter products and null alleles. In addition, chromosomal abnormalities, such as tri-allelic (three-banded) patterns resulting from trisomy (the presence of three chromosomes instead of the normal two) or duplication of specific chromosomal regions can occur. In addition, non-specific amplification products can occasionally happen and must be considered prior to making an attempt to decipher a mixed profile. Issues surrounding technological artifacts from fluorescence detection will be covered in Chapters 13 and 15. Stutter products represent the greatest challenge in confidently interpreting a mixture and designating the appropriate alleles. It is not always possible to exclude stutters since they are allelic products and differ from their associated allele by a single repeat unit. The general guideline for stutter identification of one repeat unit less than the corresponding allele and less than 15 of that allele's peak area is typically a useful one and can be used...

Some children have more difficulty with sound discrimination and phonological awareness. Others have difficulty with motor planning for speech. Some children have hypernasality, while others do not. Some older children and adolescents develop stuttering problems, while others do not. Although many children have problems in speech intelligibility, the factors contributing to the difficulties in being understood vary from child to child. Some children speak in single words, whereas other children have long conversations. fluency is the speech dysfluent Is there stuttering and struggle

Biology Related Artifact Peaks

Stutter products are the most common source of additional peaks in an electro-pherogram of an STR sample. When STR loci are PCR-amplified a minor product peak four bases (n 4) shorter than the corresponding main allele peak is commonly observed (see Chapter 6). Validation studies conducted in a laboratory help define maximum percent stutter for each locus. However, if the target allele peak is off-scale then the stutter product can appear larger than it really is in relationship to the corresponding allele peak (see Moretti et al. 2001). For data interpretation, an upper-limit stutter percentage interpretational threshold can be set for each locus as three standard deviations above the highest stutter percentage observed at that locus (Applied Biosystems 1998). Mixed sample results are observed if more than one individual contributed to the DNA profile. Mixtures are readily apparent when multiple loci are examined. An analyst looks for higher than expected stutter levels, more than...

Biology Section

The book begins with an overview and history of DNA and its use in human identification. An actual criminal investigation where DNA evidence proved crucial is used to illustrate the value of this technology to law enforcement. Chapter 2 provides some basic information on DNA structure and function while Chapter 3 covers the processes involved in preparing samples for DNA amplification via the polymerase chain reaction, which is discussed further in Chapter 4. Chapter 5 focuses on the 13 commonly used STR markers in the United States today with details about naming of alleles and unique characteristics of each marker. Chapter 6 goes into the biology of STR markers including stutter products, non-template addition, microvariants, and null alleles. These aspects can complicate data interpretation if they are not understood properly. Chapter 7 discusses issues that are unique to the forensic DNA community, namely mixtures, degraded DNA samples, PCR inhibition, and contamination, all of...

Issues With Lcn Work

When LCN testing is performed at least three artifacts typically arise (1) additional alleles are often observed from sporadic contamination in what is referred to as allele 'drop-in', (2) allele 'dropout' is common where an allele fails to amplify due to stochastic effects (see Chapter 4), and (3) stutter product amounts are enhanced so that they are often higher than the typical 5-10 of the nominal allele (Whitaker et al. 2001). Heterozygote peak imbalance is typically exacerbated due to stochastic PCR amplification, where one of the alleles is amplified by chance during the early rounds of PCR in a preferential fashion. Allele dropout can be thought of as an extreme form of heterozygote peak imbalance.

Frederick Rotgers

In 1985 this situation changed with the publication of Relapse Prevention Maintenance Strategies in the Treatment of Addictive Behaviors by G. Alan Marlatt & Judith Gordon (Marlatt and Gordon, 1985). Marlatt and Gordon presented the first cognitive-behavioral approach to maintaining behavior change. While the book focused primarily on substance use disorders, the applicability of relapse prevention (RP) strategies to other behavioral problems was readily apparent. Within the next 10 years RP approaches had been developed to sustain change following treatment of a variety of behavioral problems, including a variety of nonaddictive disorders, such as depression and agoraphobia, marital distress, stuttering, and chronic pain (Wilson, 1992). RP also stimulated a substantial body of research into its efficacy and the processes that both contributed to the persistence of addictive behaviors and made it so apparently difficult for treated individuals to maintain those changes.

Awareness Training

First, in the response description procedure, the client is asked to describe the habit behavior. The client describes all the behavioral movements involved in the habit behavior and all of the different ways in which the habit behavior may occur. Next, in the response detection procedure, the client is taught to detect each occurrence of the habit behavior in session. The therapist starts by simulating the habit behavior and having the client identify the occurrence of the behavior when exhibited by the therapist. The client then practices identifying each occurrence of the habit that he or she exhibits in the session. Some habit behaviors such as motor and vocal tics or stuttering may naturally occur in session. Other behaviors such as nervous habits (e.g., hair pulling, nail biting) typically do not occur in session. For tics or habits that occur in session, the client is instructed to indicate each time the habit naturally occurs. The client might say there's one to identify the...
