We have identified 12 kinds of genetic mutations of butyrylcholine esterase (BCHE) from phenotypic abnormalities, showing that BCHE activities were deficient or diminished in sera. These genetic mutations, detected by PCR-single-strand conformation polymorphism analysis and direct sequencing, consisted of one deletion (BCHE*FS4), nine missense (BCHE*24 M,(More)
Three Japanese patients showed very low butyrylcholinesterase activity in their sera and appeared to be homozygous for silent genes for butyrylcholinesterase. From DNA analysis, all three patients were compound heterozygotes: GGA(Gly) to CGA(Arg) at codon 365 (G365R) and TTC(Phe) to TCC(Ser) at codon 418 (F418S) in patient 1, G365R and CGT(Arg) to TGT(Cys)(More)
Fire suppression allows tree species that are intolerant of fire stress to increase their distribution, potentially resulting in disruption of historical species-environmental relationships. To measure changes between historical General Land Office surveys (1815 to 1850) and current USDA Forest Inventory and Assessment surveys (2004 to 2008), we compared(More)
A random population was screened for abnormal dibucaine and fluoride numbers (DN & FN) to find some common mutations in butyrylcholinesterase (BCHE) gene. Of 2375 unrelated individuals, 10 were found to have low DN and FN and were selected for further studies. DNA analysis of these hypocholinesterasemics revealed that seven patients were heterozygous for(More)
The influence of anabolic steroid on the process of production of rickets in vitamin-D deficient animals as well as its influence on healing of rickets with vitamin-D therapy was studied. Long-Evans strains of female rats of two age groups (6 weeks and 4 weeks) were given rachitogenic diet and were divided into five sub-groups-(I) control receiving(More)
The genetic variants of the cholinesterase (ChE) are frequently misdiagnosed as a liver dysfunction. We compared three extraction methods for screening of ChE abnormalities. Employing these three methods, total 31 cases were found to be genetic abnormalities from 2985 patients of Hamamatsu University Hospital. We picked up 11 of candidates with low enzyme(More)
Due to a mistake during the production process, there was one error in paragraph 3 of the introduction in the original published version [1]. The Forests Editorial Office wishes to make the following correction to this paper. The correct paragraph is shown below: " Canopy disturbance and subsequent increases in the quantity and quality of understory(More)
