Stage at which riluzole treatment prolongs survival in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: a retrospective analysis of data from a dose ranging study

PMCID: 5899963
PMID: 29525492
DOI: 10.1016/S1474-4422(18)30054-1
call_split See protocol

[…] iginal riluzole dose-ranging study, and enrolled between December, 1992, and November, 1993. In this retrospective analysis, we extracted data from the electronic case record forms of that study. The censor date for the riluzole survival data was set as the original study end date, Dec 31, 1994. To exclude an artifactual explanation for the findings, patient case record data from a trial of lithiu […]


A Novel Whole Gene Deletion of BCKDHB by Alu Mediated Non allelic Recombination in a Chinese Patient With Maple Syrup Urine Disease

Front Genet
PMCID: 5928131
PMID: 29740478
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2018.00145

[…] ely, 5000 bp of the contig sequence from LR-PCR was analyzed to identify two breakpoints of the gross deletion with BLAT using the UCSC Genome Browser. The known repetitive elements were evaluated by CENSOR at the 300 nucleotide sequence flanking each breakpoint using the February 2009 human reference sequence (GRCh37/hg19) (). […]


New insights into the genome repetitive fraction of the Antarctic bivalve Adamussium colbecki

PLoS One
PMCID: 5874043
PMID: 29590185
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0194502

[…] LAST server [] and with the molluscan whole genomes available in Ensembl Metazoa (http://metazoa.ensembl.org/Multi/blastview). Features related to transposable elements were searched in Repbase using Censor (http://www.girinst.org/censor/) []. The detection of internal repeats was performed through Dotlet (http://myhits.isb-sib.ch/cgi-bin/dotlet) [], while tRNAscan-SE Search Server (http://lowelab […]


“Targeted Sequencing by Gene Synteny,” a New Strategy for Polyploid Species: Sequencing and Physical Structure of a Complex Sugarcane Region

PMID: 29643861
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2018.00397

[…] (LTRs) via LTR_FINDER (Xu and Wang, ). Homology-based repeat analysis was performed to identify transposable elements (TEs) against Poaceae TEs available in the Repbase database (Kohany et al., ) via CENSOR. Second, genes were manually predicted using the sorghum genome annotation as a reference. All annotations were manually curated using Artemis: Genome Browser and Annotation Tools (Rutherford e […]


Superior ab initio identification, annotation and characterisation of TEs and segmental duplications from genome assemblies

PLoS One
PMCID: 5851578
PMID: 29538441
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0193588

[…] high copy number (>2,000 copies), a coverage plot was used to investigate the positional distribution of genomic sequence fragments with respect to the unclassified consensus sequences. BLASTN [] and CENSOR were further used to characterise the consensus sequences from the coverage peaks of 5 unclassified consensus sequence examples found in the bearded dragon coverage plot.Human (GRCh37) segmenta […]


Glutamate synthases from conifers: gene structure and phylogenetic studies

[…] from the Sustainpine database information combined with RNA-seq data. The GenBank accession number was KY215941.Retrotransposons in the genomic sequences were located using the default values of the CENSOR software tool [] provided in the GIRI portal of the Genetic Information Research Institute (http://www.girinst.org/).Searching for regions with similarity between sequences, the NCBI BLAST prog […]
