The specific aim of this study was to examine epidemiologic characteristics and multiple risk factors of lung cancer in Taiwan. The age-adjusted mortality from lung cancer has been increasing since the early 1950s with a constant male-to-female ratio of around 2.0. International comparison of cumulative mortality from lung cancer showed a much lower(More)
Since its discovery three decades ago, sterol carrier protein-2 (SCP-2) has remained a fascinating protein whose physiological function in lipid metabolism remains an enigma. Its multiple proposed functions arise from its complex gene structure, post-translational processing, intracellular localization, and ligand specificity. The SCP-2 gene has two(More)
Logic synthesis is the process of automatically generating optimized logic level representation from a high-level description. With the rapid advances in integrated circuit technology and the resultant growth in design complexity, designers increasingly rely on logic synthesis to shorten the design time, while achieving performance objectives.

Cellular cholesterol homeostasis is a balance of influx, catabolism and synthesis, and efflux. Unlike vascular lipoprotein cholesterol transport, intracellular cholesterol trafficking is only beginning to be resolved. Exogenous cholesterol and cholesterol ester enter cells via the low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor/lysosomal and less so by nonvesicular,(More)
Both descriptive and analytical studies were carried out to examine epidemiologic characteristics and multiple risk factors of stomach cancer in Taiwan. The age-adjusted mortality rate of stomach cancer has been decreasing since the early 1970s for both males and females. The male-to-female ratio of the disease has remained around 2:1 in the past three(More)
Although sterol carrier protein 2 (SCP-2) has long been regarded primarily as a sterol transfer protein, its actual physiological function is not known. The recent discovery that SCP-2 binds long chain fatty acyl-CoAs (LCFA-CoAs) with high affinity suggests additional roles for SCP-2 in cellular utilization of LCFA-CoAs for synthesis of glycerides and(More)
The recent discovery that sterol carrier protein-2 (SCP-2) binds long chain++ (LCFA-CoA) with high affinity (A. Frolov et al., J. Biol. Chem. 271 (1997) 31878-31884) suggests new possible functions of this protein in LCFA-CoA metabolism. The purpose of the present investigation was to determine whether SCP-2 differentially modulated microsomal LCFA-CoA(More)
