HYPOTHESIS One of the inflammatory mediators of otitis media, nitric oxide, can damage cochlear outer hair cells. BACKGROUND Free radicals, including nitric oxide, have been detected in middle ear effusion. Increasing evidence implicates free radicals in the pathogenesis of otitis media and possibly in the development of sensorineural hearing loss. (More)
Free radicals such as nitric oxide (NO) seem to be important in the pathogenesis of otitis media with effusion (OME). NO can be quantitated by measuring its metabolites, nitrate (NO(3)(-)) and nitrite (NO(2)(-)). The purpose of this study is to determine the concentrations of NO in human middle ear effusion (MEE). Samples of human MEE were collected at the(More)
We isolated and characterized the profilin (FcPFN) cDNA from hemocytes ofFenneropenaeus chinensis, a unique shrimp species from the Yellow Sea. The FcPFN cDNA consists of 830 bp and encodes a polypeptide of 125 amino acids, having a predicted isoelectric point of 5.06. The deduced amino acid sequence of FcPFN shows 36% and 90% amino acid sequence identity(More)
Occlusion of the semicircular canals has been used in otoneurologic and skull base surgeries with preservation of hearing. In order to understand the role of occlusion in hearing preservation, we observed early histopathologic changes of the lateral semicircular canal following transection and occlusion in guinea pigs. After surgery, the membranous(More)
We characterized nine new microsatellite markers isolated from (GT) n and (CT) n microsatellite-enriched genomic libraries of the sea squirt (Halocynthia roretzi). All markers were polymorphic in 92 individuals from a single natural population with 2–21 (mean 9.22) alleles per locus. The observed and expected heterozygosity of these markers were 0.086–0.886(More)
Tear-off roofing shingle, referred to as Reclaimed asphalt shingle (RAS), is the byproduct of construction demolition and it is a major solid waste stream in the U.S. Reuse of this byproduct in road construction sector can contribute to the success of materials sustainability as well as landfill conservation. Ground RAS has similar particle distribution as(More)
