Sucrose, glucose, and fructose as carbon sources in culture medium were assessed in hairy root cultures ofCatharanthus roseus. The cultures preferentially consumed sucrose, resulting in about 40% (dry wt) higher growth rate. However, fructose enhanced the cathranthine yield about two-fold. The elevated yield was not seemingly ascribed to the higher(More)
Dialyzed paper pulp waste liquor added at 20% (v/v) basal medium improved the production of indole alkaloid, catha-ranthine, from Catharanthine roseus, yielding 51 μ:g/cell as against 42 μg/cell in non-supplemented medium. 30-40% (v/v) of catharanthine was secreted out of the cells, showing that the change of the ratio of inner to outer concentrations was(More)
This paper deals with the existence of a mild solution for some fractional semilinear differential equations with non local conditions. Using a more appropriate definition of a mild solution than the one given in [12], we prove the existence and uniqueness of such solutions, assuming that the linear part is the infinitesimal generator of an analytic(More)
Autoimmune sera have been used in the diagnosis of autoimmune diseases as well as the analysis of nuclear substructures. In an attempt to study the biological characteristics of the nuclear matrix, we screened human sera using immunofluorescent staining and immunoblot. We detected antibodies against nuclear matrix (NM), a remnant nonchromatin protein(More)
Six hundred and twenty-five sets of supine and erect abdominal radiographs of 288 patients with the confirmed diagnosis of intussusception (315 episodes) and 310 patients without intussusception were reviewed retrospectively to determine the characteristic radiographic features of intussusception. Among the patients with intussusception, 155 episodes (49%)(More)
The goal of this study was to evaluate the effects of lactation stage and individual performance on milk cis-9, trans-11 conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) content in dairy cows. In experiment 1, the milk cis-9, trans-11 CLA content from dairy cows in early (0.33±0.014%), middle (0.37±0.010%), and late stages (0.44±0.020%) showed significant differences(More)
Epidemiologic data on the etiologic organisms is important for appropriate empirical antibiotic treatment of bacterial meningitis. We identified the etiologies of community-acquired bacterial meningitis in Korean adults and the associated epidemiological factors. A retrospective, multicenter nationwide study was carried out. Patients 18 years of age or(More)
Lon protease degrades oxidatively damaged proteins in mitochondrial matrix. To examine the relationships between mitochondrial quality control, mitochondrial functions and diabetes, we investigated whether lon protease deficiency influences insulin resistance by affecting mitochondrial function. Lon protease-specific small interfering RNA (siRNA) was(More)
