Masqueraders who impersonate other users pose serious threat to computer security. Unfortunately, firewalls or misuse-based intrusion detection systems are generally ineffective in detecting masquerades. Although anomaly detection techniques have long been considered as an effective approach to complement misuse detection techniques, they are not widely(More)
The aim of the study is to investigate the prevalence of plasmid-mediated AmpC beta-lactamases in Enterobacteriaceae naturally lacking chromosomal AmpC beta-lactamases. A total of 1860 clinical isolates of Klebsiella spp., Salmonella spp., and Proteus mirabilis were collected from a Korean hospital between January 2002 and December 2004. For the isolates(More)
Regulation of the formation and function of bone-resorbing osteoclasts (OCs) is a key to understanding the pathogenesis of skeletal disorders. Gene-targeting studies have shown that the RANK signaling pathway plays a critical role in OC differentiation and function. Although pharmaceutical blockade of RANK may be a viable strategy for preventing bone(More)
Glycogen synthase kinase-3β (GSK-3β) is a serine/threonine kinase originally identified as a regulator of glycogen deposition. Although the role of GSK-3β in osteoblasts is well characterized as a negative regulator of β-catenin, its effect on osteoclast formation remains largely unidentified. Here, we show that the GSK-3β inactivation upon receptor(More)
This paper describes the formulation of the obstacle avoidance method to work in three-dimensional workspaces. We assume a spherical and omni-directional robot. The obstacle information is given in the form of points, which is the usual form in which sensor data is given. Obstacle avoidance methods are based on a real-time control process. Sensors collect(More)
This study was carried out to investigate the in vitro effects of isopanduratin A and 4-hydroxypanduratin A isolated from Kaempferia pandurata ROXB. on melanin biosynthesis and tyrosinase activity. Two chalcone compounds, isopanduratin A and 4-hydroxypanduratin A, were isolated from the ethyl acetate fraction of ethanol extract as the active principles.(More)
Matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-1 is a superfamily of zinc-dependent endopeptidases that are capable of degrading all components of the extracellular matrix. Kaempferia pandurata extract (0.01-0.5 microg/mL) significantly reduced the expression of MMP-1 and induced the expression of type 1 procollagen at the protein and mRNA levels in a dose-dependent(More)
Since computed tomography (CT) was developed and its resolution, sensitivity, and scan speed rapidly improved, the use of CT in the diagnosis of hepatic disease has been evaluated by various investigators. In particular, liver-specific X-ray CT imaging has attracted much attention in cancer diagnosis and cancer treatment because liver metastases are a(More)
BACKGROUND Group A rotavirus is the leading cause of acute gastroenteritis in children worldwide. We investigated G and P genotypes of group A rotavirus strains isolated from patients during 2013 and investigated which genotypes were identified from vaccinated patients. METHODS From January to December 2013, 2235 fecal specimens were tested for rotavirus(More)
A study using boronic acid (BA), an AmpC enzyme inhibitor, was designed to detect the combined expression of plasmid-mediated AmpC beta-lactamases (pAmpCs) and extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) in bacterial isolates naturally lacking chromosomal ampC genes. A total of 122 Klebsiella spp., Salmonella spp., and Proteus mirabilis isolates producing or(More)
