Human platelet-specific antigens (HPAs) are found on platelet membrane glycoproteins and are the target of platelet alloantibodies that mediate platelet destruction in neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT), post-transfusion purpura (PTP) and refractoriness to platelet transfusion therapy. The biallelic polymorphism of all HPA systems is known to be(More)
AIMS Isomaltulose (palatinose) is a slowly digestible sucrose isomer that can reduce both the glycemic and insulinemic response to foods. The aim of this study was to clone and express a sucrose isomerase (SIase) gene and characterize the protein that is responsible for the production of isomaltulose in the micro-organism Enterobacter sp. FMB-1. METHODS(More)
This report presents the treatment of an extensive lymphatic malformation of the tongue. Sclerosing agents are now widely used as the first-line treatment of lymphatic malformation. However, treatment of lymphatic malformation involving the face and the vital structures such as the airway remains to be challenging. A 4-year-old boy underwent a total of 15(More)
Two blue-pigment binding proteins, BP1 and BP2, are present in larval and pupal haemolymph of cabbage white butterfly, Pieris rapae, and fluctuate in expression during development. Both BP1 and BP2 are found in pupal haemolymph in varying proportions as well as in adult haemolymph, while only small amounts of BP2 are found in larval haemolymph. BPs are(More)
