New BIOT messages.

The BIOT TOPIC is open for help, questions, announcements and remarks
concerning new and latest developments in BIOTechnology and Molecular
biology. Also you may want to offer or seek (technically oriented)
collaboration.

Sponsoring companies, which cover part of the costs made by HUM-MOLGEN,
are welcome to participate in BIOT, too, but only if their message is
of primary interest to our subscribers. Please be sure to thank these
companies for sponsoring HUM-MOLGEN.

Please send high quality messages only, fully stating your name,
address and purpose of your message. Please state only non-trivial
questions. Other messages may be refused without further notification.
Please, help yourself by helping your colleagues.

This BIOT message contains:

1)  A request for help in screening for viruses found in urine samples
2)  Genomic DNA for human beta and alpha globins
3)  Human mastocytoma cell line
4)  Leber's Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON)
5)  Antibody therapy site
6)  Resources for Molecular Cytogenetics

    We want to screen urine for the excretion of a variety of DNA viruses.
The virus may be cell associated or free.  We'd like to know the experience
of others who are performing similar screenings with regard to methods of
DNA extraction.  Specifically when a lysis solution is added, nucleic acid
absorbed to a resin, and subsequently eluted would seem ideal.  However, we
haven't been able to find one since the Wizard kits were modified.  We'd
like to screen about 5 ml at a time.  Thanks for your help.

To whom it may concern:

        I would like to find an investigator with the genomic fragments of
human adult beta- or alpha- globins. I am looking for a free sample, or
please tell me where I can find them. For more detailed information of my
recent study please contact me.
Thank you very much.

Dear Colleagues

    I am seeking for a human mastocytoma cell line to study effects in
culture. For comparison, a mouse mastocytoma cell line would be of great
interest. If anybody can help me please contact me with e-mail:

Hi Folks,

    I am looking for any information on Leber's Hereditary Optic Neuropathy
(LHON), or people/institutes currently researching into LHON and related
(Mitochondrial) topics.
    I am a trustee of the LHON Trust, a UK charity dedicated to gathering
and distributing information on this rare condition, and encouraging
research into it.
    I am maintaining a WWW site dedicated to LHON and related topics to
further improve the spread of information world-wide, and have had patients
and their families contact me from several countries already.  Any comments
on this site, especially suggesting additional sources of information,
would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Resources for Molecular Cytogenetics

Web address:  http://bioserver.uniba.it/fish/rocchi/welcome.html

The site includes (i) a large collection of Partial Chromosome Paints (PCP)
from somatic cell hybrids, with images. DNA samples are free available to
non-profit Institutions  for cytogenetic investigations. (ii) FISH data,
with images, of about 450 YACs (from CEPH).
