BACKGROUND To determine biomaterial components, the components must first be transferred into solution; thus extraction is the first step in biomaterial analysis. High hydrostatic pressure technology was used for ginsenoside extraction from ginseng roots. In the extraction of fresh and red ginseng, high hydrostatic pressure extraction (HHPE) was found to be(More)
The rupture of an intracranial aneurysm (IA) results in subarachnoid hemorrhage, a catastrophic neurological condition with high morbidity and mortality. Following-up on our previous genome-wide linkage study in Japanese population, we extensively analyzed a 4.6 Mb linkage region around D7S2472 on 7q11 by genotyping 168 single nucleotide polymorphisms(More)
OBJECT Among patients with aneurysms, those with heterozygous (T/C) endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) T-786C single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), a mutation reducing endothelial nitric oxide synthesis, are reported to have larger ruptured intracranial aneurysms (IAs) than those with homozygous (C/C or T/T) genotype. The authors tested patients(More)
A bacterium designated M1-1 was isolated from the gills of a Korean rockfish, Sebastes schlegeli Hilgendorf, after high hydrostatic pressure processing. Studies of 16S rRNA phylogeny and comparative genomics demonstrated that the isolate belongs to Staphylococcus saprophyticus subsp. saprophyticus. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of S.(More)
Catecholamines are among the first molecules that displayed a kind of response to prolonged or repeated stress. It is well established that long-term stress leads to the induction of catecholamine biosynthetic enzymes such as tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) and dopamine β-hydroxylase (DBH) in adrenal medulla. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the(More)
A bacterium, designated M2-6, was isolated from Korean ginseng, Panax ginseng C. A. Meyer, roots after high-hydrostatic-pressure processing. On the basis of 16 rRNA gene phylogeny, the isolate was presumptively identified as a Bacillus sp. Here we report the draft genome sequence of Bacillus sp. strain M2-6 (= KACC 16563).
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE A possible association has been proposed for the formation of intracranial aneurysm (IA) and deficiency alleles (S and Z) of the alpha1-antitrypsin (AAT) gene. We extensively screened this gene in Japanese and Korean patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. METHODS Seven allelic variants, including S and Z alleles, were(More)
The authors report a case of recurrent subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) after complete occlusion of an intracranial aneurysm. It is known that regrowth of an aneurysm after the complete clipping is a rare event. For detection of recurrence, however, it may be necessary to follow up with the patient regularly after the initial operation for intracranial(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to produce triacylglycerols (TAGs) enriched in pinolenic acid (PLA) at the sn-2 position using the principle of acyl migration, from the pine nut oil containing PLA esterified exclusively at the sn-3 position. RESULTS Two types of lipase-catalysed reactions, i.e. redistribution and reesterification of fatty acids,(More)
Plant polyphenol compounds have been considered nutritionally important recently. However, achieving successful delivery of flavonoids and phytoestrogens via the oral route is particularly difficult, due to the formiable enzymatic and transport barriers in the gastrointestinal tract. Polymer-based delivery systems that trap molecules of interest within(More)
