OBJECTIVE To determine the frequency of cerebellar infarction mimicking vestibular neuritis (VN), the pattern of clinical presentation, and the territory of the cerebellar infarction when it simulates VN. METHODS We studied 240 consecutive cases of isolated cerebellar infarction in the territories of the cerebellar arteries diagnosed by brain MRI from the(More)
The ability of crab shell to remove heavy metals from aqueous solution was evaluated by comparing with that of several sorbents (cation exchange resin, zeolite, granular activated carbon, powdered activated carbon). All experiments were conducted using several heavy metal ion solutions (Pb, Cd, Cu, Cr). The orders of heavy metal removal capacity and initial(More)
This study was conducted to assess postmortem proteolysis using a proteomics approach, and to determine the relationship of proteolysis to WB-shear force, drip loss, and hunter L(∗) value during chiller ageing in pig longissimus muscle. To generate various meat qualities, 20 male landraces were assigned into 2×2 factorial (10 pigs fasted for 18 h and 10(More)
BACKGROUND We examined the effects of remifentanil on cardiovascular and bispectral index (BIS) responses to tracheal intubation and neonatal outcomes in pre-eclamptic patients undergoing Caesarean delivery under general anaesthesia. METHODS Forty-two women with severe pre-eclampsia were randomly assigned to receive either remifentanil 1 microg kg(-1)(More)
Interactions between muscle shortening and proteolysis and their effects on Warner-Bratzler (WB) shear force were investigated in beef m. longissimus (LD) and m. semitendinosus (ST). Muscles were taken within 30 post-mortem from eight Hanwoo steers, divided into three portions, and incubated at 5, 15, or 36 °C for 24 h, during which time rigor mortis(More)
Effects of the Korean carcass-grading system on carcass traits and meat quality parameters for the longissimus dorsi (LD) and semimembranosus (SM) muscles were investigated for Hanwoo steer beef. High quality grade beef cuts had significantly higher intramuscular fat content than those of low quality grade beef cuts. To establish a guaranteed system of(More)
The current study was conducted to characterize objective meat quality, fiber type and their relations to postmortem proteolysis in longissimus muscle of Landrace and Korean native black (KNP) pigs. Longissimus muscles from each 10 market-weighted male pigs were removed after conventional slaughtering and chilling procedures, and aged for 1 or 7 days at 4°C(More)
Wide variations in port-wine stains and their responses to various therapies pose a need for the development of an objective method to evaluate the effects of treatment. Several techniques such as laser Doppler, reflectance spectrometry, and tristimulus colorimetry have been used to evaluate the color of port-wine stains, but these techniques are limited by(More)
Stress-activated protein kinase/c-Jun N-terminal kinase (SAPK/JNK) is activated by a variety of cellular or environmental stresses. Proper regulation of the SAPK/JNK pathway may be critical for cell survival or death under various conditions. In this study, we report the molecular cloning of novel isoforms of JIP-1, which harbor a putative phosphotyrosine(More)
BACKGROUND The optimal dose of remifentanil to attenuate the cardiovascular responses to tracheal intubation in pre-eclamptic patients undergoing Caesarean delivery under general anaesthesia has not been established. We compared the effects of two low doses of remifentanil on the cardiovascular responses to tracheal intubation and neonatal outcomes. (More)
