A system for somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) was developed and led to the successful production of GFP-transfected piglets. In experiment 1, two groups of SCNT couplets reconstructed with porcine fetal fibroblasts (PFF) and enucleated sow (S) or gilt oocytes (G): 1). received a simultaneous electrical fusion/activation (S-EFA or G-EFA groups), or 2).(More)
The goal of this study was to develop a new, objective prognostic score (OPS) for terminally ill cancer patients based on an integrated model that includes novel objective prognostic factors. A multicenter study of 209 terminally ill cancer patients from six training hospitals in Korea were prospectively followed until death. The Cox proportional hazard(More)
PURPOSE Antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) may have adverse effects on bone metabolism and bone mineral density (BMD). The aim of this study is to determine the changes of bone metabolism and BMD in epilepsy patients who are undergoing levetiracetam (LEV) monotherapy. METHODS Drug-naïve, sixty-one patients with recent onset epilepsy were recruited (24 female, 37(More)
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, one of the most common causes of chronic liver disease, is strongly associated with metabolic syndrome. Nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA) has been reported to inhibit lipoprotein lipase; however, the effect of NDGA on hepatic lipid metabolism remains unclear. We evaluated body weight, adiposity, liver histology, and hepatic(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY Cornus kousa F.Buerger ex Miquel, an oriental medicinal plant, has been traditionally used for the treatment of hyperglycemia, but its molecular mechanism remains unknown. The goal of this study was to investigate the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) ligand-binding activity of Cornus kousa and to determine the effects of(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The present study was designed to investigate whether 24 h of SD negatively affects the attention and working memory and increases the serum concentrations of stress hormones, glucose, and inflammatory markers. METHODS The acute effects of sleep deprivation (SD) on cognition and the stress hormones were evaluated in six healthy(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY Euchresta horsfieldii Benn., an oriental medicinal plant, has been used for the traditional treatment of hyperlipidemia and has been reported to possess bioactive isoflavones; however, the molecular mechanism underlying its hypolipidemic effects remains unclear. In the present study, we investigated the effect of Euchresta horsfieldii on(More)
TolC and its homologous family of proteins are outer membrane factors that are essential for exporting small molecules and toxins across the outer membrane in Gram-negative bacteria. Two open reading frames in the Vibrio vulnificus genome that encode proteins homologous to Escherichia coli TolC, designated TolCV1 and TolCV2, have 51.3% and 29.6% amino acid(More)
