mRNA profiling for body fluid identification


Haas, C; Klesser, B; Kratzer, A; Bär, W (2008). mRNA profiling for body fluid identification. Forensic Science International: Genetics Supplement Series, 1(1):37-38.

Abstract

mRNA profiling is a promising new method for the identification of body fluids from biological stains. A multiplex reverse transcription endpoint PCR method was adapted for the identification of blood, saliva, semen, vaginal secretions and menstrual blood. For specificity, sensitivity and suitability to biological stains the endpoint PCR method was satisfying. Up to 15 months old stains were shown to be suitable for mRNA profiling. In addition a realtime PCR assay was tested for sensitivity with blood and semen samples, providing comparable results to endpoint PCR or enzymatic tests.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
