Postlaparoscopic shoulder pain (PLSP) frequently follows laparoscopic surgery. In this placebo-controlled study, we evaluated the efficacy of two perioperative doses of pregabalin 300 mg 12 h apart for preventing and attenuating PLSP after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The frequency and severity of PLSP, need for postoperative rescue analgesia, and side(More)
A novel Gram-staining-negative, facultatively anaerobic, motile and rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain LHW37(T), was isolated from a dead ark clam collected on the south coast of Korea. The novel strain grew optimally at 37 °C, at pH 7.0-8.0 and with 2% (w/v) NaCl. The predominant cellular fatty acids were C(18:1)ω7c and summed feature 3 (C(16:1)ω7c(More)
Strain LHWP2(T), a novel, aerobic, budding, motile and ovoid bacterium belonging to the phylum Planctomycetes, was isolated from a dead ark clam (Scapharca broughtonii) from the south coast of Korea. Strain LHWP2(T) grew optimally at 30 °C, in the presence of 4% (w/v) NaCl, and at pH 7. The predominant cellular fatty acids were C16:0, C18:1ω7c and/or(More)
A Gram-stain-negative, non-motile, aerobic and rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain MME-001T, was isolated from the tidal flat of Muui-do in the Republic of Korea. Phylogenetic trees based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence showed that strain MME-001T belonged to the genus Pseudoruegeria in the family Rhodobacteraceae and that it shared the highest 16S rRNA(More)
Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) induces apoptotic cell death in a variety of tumor cells without significant cytotoxicity on normal cells. However, many cancer cells with apoptotic defects are resistant to treatment with TRAIL alone, limiting its potential as an anticancer therapeutic. Here, we report on the tumoricidal(More)
A novel Gram-negative, motile, and ovoid-shaped strain, LHWP3T, which belonged to the family Planctomycetaceae in the phylum Planctomycetes, was isolated from a dead ark clam Scapharca broughtonii collected during a mass mortality event on the south coast of Korea. Phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that the isolate was(More)
Gillisia sp. strain CBA3202, which belongs to the family Flavobacteriaceae, was isolated from sand of the seashore on Jeju Island, Republic of Korea. The draft genome of Gillisia sp. CBA3202 contains 2,981,404 bp with a G+C content of 34.9%. This is the second genome sequence of the Gillisia strains.
A novel, red-pigmented, pleomorphic and short rod-shaped haloarchaeon, designated B8T, was isolated from a salt-fermented seafood. Strain B8T was found to be able to grow at 20–45 °C, in the presence of 15–30 % (w/v) NaCl and at pH 7.0–9.0. The optimum requirements were found to be a temperature range of 35–40 °C, pH 8.0 and the presence of 25 % NaCl. The(More)
A Gram-negative, nonmotile, endospore-forming, rod-shaped bacterial strain LHW35T, which belonged to the genus Paenibacillus, was isolated from marine sediment collected from the south coast of the Republic of Korea. A phylogenetic analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strain LHW35T was most closely related to Paenibacillus taiwanensis(More)
Lymphocytes from eight individuals out of 60 healthy donors, whose plasmas showed relatively higher antibody titer for a target antigen of death receptor 5 (DR5), were selected for the source of antibody genes to construct so called an anti-DR5 pseudo-immune human single-chain fragment variable (scFv) library on the yeast cell surface (approximately 2x10(6)(More)
