Table of Contents

Mutation Detection in Human Genes. Gene Mapping, Cloning, Sequencing. Transcription: Promoters, Transcription Factors, Mrna. RNA Editing, Ribozymes, Antisense RNA. Genome Recombination Amplification. Receptors, Signal Transduction. The Mouse as a Model System for Human Molecular Genetics.


Human Molecular Genetics is a practical guide to the applications of molecular biology and genetics techniques to human cells. A wide range of experimental procedures for investigating human genes and genomes are presented.

Key Features

  • Mutation Detection in Human Genes - chemical mismatch cleavage, DNA mini-sequencing, SSCP method, RT-PCR, electrophoretic mobility shift assay (EMSA), protein truncation test, chromosome deletion analysis.
  • Gene Mapping, Cloning, Sequencing - gene linkage determination, large-capacity cloning system, cDNA isolation, differential display method, primer-based DNA sequencing.
  • Transcription: Promoters, Transcription Factors, mRNA, - promotor mutation analysis, transcription factor identification, mRNA-protein interaction characterization.
  • RNA Editing, Ribozymes, Antisense RNA-mammalian RNA editing assays, ribozymes as genetic tools, antisense RNA technology.
  • Genome Recombination, Amplification - recombination assays for mammalian cells, gene amplification measurement.
  • Receptors, Signal Transduction - intra-cellular receptor characterization, analysis of signal transduction genes.
  • The Mouse as a Model System for Human Molecular Genetics - mouse genome methods (mouse crosses, somatic cell hybrids, YACs), mouse model for cardiovascular disease.
