The invention is based, at least in part, on the observation that the presence of particular biomarkers, e.g., particular mutations in any of the KCNQ1, KCNH2, SCN5A, KCNE1 and KCNE2 genes as identified in Tables 1-5 (and, in particular, those identified with an asterisk), is associated with Long QT Syndrome (LQTS).

Transgenomic, Inc. | Date: 2013-03-15

Methods of using polymerase chain reactions to enrich a target sequence in a sample containing reference sequences and target sequences having high homology and amplifiable by the same primer pair are provided herein. In particular the methods provide a robust means to improve the fold enrichment of the target sequence and minimize reaction-to-reaction, well-to-well and run-to-run variations in the enrichment methods.

The present invention relates to a polymorphic MRP-1 polynucleotide, genes or vectors comprising the polynucleotides and a host cell genetically engineered with the polynucleotide or gene. Also provided are methods for producing molecular variant polypeptides, cells capable of expressing a molecular variant polypeptide and a polypeptide encoded by the polynucleotide or the gene or obtainable by the method or cells produced herein. Also provided is an antibody to the polypeptide, a transgenic animal, and a solid support comprising one or a plurality of the provided polynucleotides, genes, vectors, polypeptides, antibodies or host cells. Furthermore, methods of identifying a polymorphism, identifying and obtaining a pro-drug or drug or an inhibitor are also provided. In addition, the invention relates to methods for producing a pharmaceutical composition, diagnosing a disease and detection of the polynucleotide. Furthermore, provided herein are uses of the polynucleotides, genes, vectors, polypeptides or antibodies herein.
