Microglia are believed to be the only resident immune cells in the CNS, originating from hematopoietic-derived myeloid cells and invading the CNS during development. However, the detailed mechanisms of differentiation and transformation of microglial cells are not fully understood. Here, we demonstrate that murine microglial cells show two morphological(More)
We report a patient with GNE myopathy with a homozygous mutation (c.1505-4G>A) in GNE gene. The patient recognized progressive weakness of extremities at age 60. Neurological examination at age 65 revealed severe weakness and atrophy in the tibialis anterior muscles and distal predominant moderate weakness in the extremities. Muscle biopsy performed at age(More)
We report two cases of superficial siderosis (SS) of the central nervous system (CNS), which is caused by chronic haemorrhaging into the subarachnoid space with haemosiderin deposition in the superficial portion of the CNS. Patient 1 had fluid collection in the spinal canal, which was reported as the source of the chronic bleeding. Patient 2 was bleeding(More)
SUMMARY Improving the speed of fluorescent X-ray CT imaging using synchrotron radiation has been studied from the points of view of the imaging system and the processing algorithm. Regarding the imaging system, high-speed imaging at 2 seconds per point with a dead time of about 6% has been realized by incorporating an electronic system which operates stably(More)
