Binding of sialyl Lewis X antigen to lectin-like receptors on NK cells induces cytotoxicity and tyrosine phosphorylation of a 17-kDa protein.
BACKGROUND Natural killer (NK) cells mediate cytotoxicity through cell-surface receptors including lectin-like receptors. We have investigated whether sialyl Lewis X (sLe(X)) antigen,Expand

Use of 2-[18F]-fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose positron emission tomography (FDG PET) imaging for the evaluation of muscle metabolic activity in ruptured rotator cuffs: Identification of shoulder muscles by
The uptake of 2-[(18)F]-fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose (FDG) into shoulder muscles was studied in 11 patients with rotator cuff tears. FDG was injected under resting conditions, and cuff muscle exercisesExpand

Atomic‐Order Thermal Nitridation of Silicon at Low Temperatures
Atomic-order nitridation of Si(100) in an NH 3 environment (124-1400 Pa) at 300-650°C has been investigated using an ultraclean low pressure hot-wall reactor system. At 500°C or higher, the N atomExpand
