He remains hospitalized. Deaths among poultry in the neighbourhood have been recently reported. The source of exposure is under investigation currently. The next case is a 37 year old feminine from Tangerang, Banten Province. January 2007 and was hospitalized on 6 January 2007 She developed symptoms on 1. She remains in intensive care. Initial investigations suggest unwell poultry as the possible source of infection. Of the 76 cases confirmed to day in Indonesia, 57 have already been fatal.S.Wild-type and mutant PAPSS2 proteins had been incubated with human SULT2A1 wild-type proteins to measure the ability of PAPSS2 to facilitate sulfation of DHEA to DHEAS. Steroid extraction and quantification previously were performed as described. Further information on the functional assay are provided in the Supplementary Appendix. No mutations were within SULT2A1 or PAPSS1. However, direct sequencing of the PAPSS2 gene uncovered a heterozygous substitution of cytosine for guanine at nucleotide position 143 .). Furthermore, sequencing exposed a heterozygous substitution of cytosine for thymidine in complementary DNA position 985 . No mutations were found on immediate sequencing of PAPSS2 exons 2 and 8 in 200 controls, including 100 Turkish persons, thereby excluding the possibility that the identified mutations represent population-specific sequence variants.).
