BACKGROUND Germline-specific differential DNA methylation that persists through fertilization and embryonic development is thought to be the 'imprint' distinguishing the parental alleles of imprinted genes. If such methylation is to work as the imprinting mechanism, however, it has to be reprogrammed following each passage through the germline. Previous(More)

Acquired drug-related hemolytic anemia is mainly induced by immune mechanism or microvascular lesion. Three mechanisms of drug-related immunologic injury to red blood cells are recognized. They are hapten or drug adsorption mechanism, ternary or drug-antibody-target cell complex mechanism and autoantibody mechanism. Prototype drugs are penicillin, quinidine(More)
In order to control the nosocomial infections by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in the Akita University Hospital, the systematic surveillance for MRSA-infection has been done since October in 1991. We reviewed MRSA-isolation numbers, MRSA-detected patient numbers, risk factors of nosocomial infection and patient's basic diseases with the(More)
Dietary or caloric restriction confers various clinical benefits. Short-term fasting of mice is a common experimental procedure that may involve systemic metabolic remodeling, which may significantly affect experimental outputs. This study evaluated adaptive cellular responses after 1- or 2-day fasting in 13 mouse tissues by quantitative PCR using 15 marker(More)

Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a hematopoietic stem cell disorder that is characterized by splenomegaly and marked elevation of the blood leukocyte count with granulocyte in maturity. Ph chromosome was identified in CML in 1960 and was found to clearly result from reciprocal translocation between chromosome 9 and chromosome 22 (t(q;22)) (q34;q11). CML(More)
BACKGROUND Expression of the rat cdc2 gene during G1-S phase progression is negatively and positively regulated by the silencer and enhancer elements located upstream of the basal promoter. The silencer and enhancer sequences resemble each other, but the silencer contains extra internal AG residues. RESULTS The cDNA clones encoding the enhancer binding(More)
