β-amyloid peptide (Aβ), a major component of senile plaques, plays important roles in neuropathology of Alzheimer's disease (AD). An array of in vitro and in vivo data indicates that Aβ-induced neuronal death is mediated by oxidative stress. In this study, we aimed to investigate effects of sulforaphane (SUL), an isothiocyanate in cruciferous vegetables, on(More)
The objective of this study was to monitor the occurrence and levels of fumonisin B1 (FB1) and fumonisin B2 (FB2) in animal feeds distributed in South Korea in 2011. The contamination levels of FB1 and FB2 were investigated in 150 samples of compound feeds and in 40 samples of feed ingredients. The contamination rate of feed ingredients with FB1 and FB2 was(More)
Characterization of the cytoskeleton's viscoelastic properties is essential for understanding cellular dynamics in many biological functions of the cell, especially cell migration. The viscoelastic properties of the retracting NIH 3T3 fibroblasts are investigated here to shed light on the mechanics and dynamics of cell migration. A part of the cell is(More)
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation has been reported to induce cutaneous inflammation such as erythema and edema via induction of proinflammatory enzymes and mediators. Sargassum fulvellum is a brown alga of Sargassaceae family which has been demonstrated to exhibit antipyretic, analgesic, antiedema, antioxidant, antitumor, fibrinolytic, and hepatoprotective(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the occurrence and levels of deoxynivalenol (DON), fumonisins B1 and B2 (FBs), and zearalenone (ZEN) contaminants in animal feeds used in Korea in 2012. Contamination with DON was observed in 91.33% and 53.33% in compound feeds and feed ingredients, respectively. Among compound feeds, poultry layer feed (laying)(More)
Sex education used to be a very sensitive or taboo subject matter to be taught in Malaysian schools however it has been introduced indirectly to Malaysian Secondary School and Primary School in 1989 and 1994 consecutively. This effort though appears not good enough as crime index statistics of rape cases produced in Malaysian police report showed that(More)
Older workers are a differentiated employee group with different workplace issues. A literature review was conducted to further develop the framework (the three traditional components of human research development [HRD]—training and development, career development, and organizational development—combined with the three working patterns of remaining,(More)
Enormous economic losses caused by infection of peppers with Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) have spurred the development of CMV-resistant peppers using genetic techniques. However, growing concern from the general public over genetically modified (GM) crops has focused attention on safety and labeling issues. In this study, we developed and optimized a(More)
Pollen of genetically modified (GM) pepper containing the gene for cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) coat protein (CP) and GM Chinese cabbage with high phenylethylisothiocyanate (PEITC) content was investigated for assessment of allergic risk. Amino acid (AA) sequences of the inserted gene products of GM virus resistant pepper and GM Chinese cabbage with high(More)
With the deployment of broadband networking technology, many clients are enabled to receive various IPTV services. To support many clients, the network should be designed by considering the following factors: viewer's waiting time, buffer requirement at each client, number of channel required for video delivery Our comparative study shows that it is more(More)
