alpha-Lipoic acid (alpha-LA), an antioxidant used for diabetic polyneuropathy, was reported to induce AMP-activated protein kinase activation and reductions in insulin secretion in pancreatic beta-cells at high concentrations (> or = 500 micromol/l). This study investigated whether alpha-LA has a protective role under oxidative stress in beta-cells and its(More)
This paper presents a wearable electrophysiological interface with enhanced immunity to motion artifacts. Anti-artifact schemes, including a patch-type modular structure and real-time automatic level adjustment, are proposed and verified in two wireless system prototypes of a patch-type electrocardiogram (ECG) module and an electromyogram (EMG)-based(More)
For gene transfer strategies to improve islet engraftment, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression should be regulated in a way that matches the transient nature of revascularization with simultaneously avoiding undesirable effects of overexpression. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of hypoxia-inducible VEGF gene transfer(More)
OBJECTIVE The efficient transfer of genes into intact islets is difficult since islets exist as clusters of differentiated cells with little replication potential. Cell proliferation in response to growth factors is known to be accompanied by loosening of cell-to-cell contacts and increasing paracellular permeability. In this study, we investigated whether(More)
Autonomic dysfunction is an increasingly recognized problem in aging animals and man. The pathologic changes that produce autonomic dysfunction in human aging are largely unknown; however, in experimental animal models specific pathologic changes have been found in selected sympathetic ganglia. To address whether similar neuropathologic changes occur in(More)
Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) stimulates cell proliferation and has anti-apoptotic effects on pancreatic islet β cells. In our previous study, the transduction of mouse islets with a recombinant adenovirus containing GLP-1 cDNA enhanced islet graft survival. In this study, we sought to deliver the GLP-1 gene using a nonviral vector, which raises fewer(More)
INTRODUCTION Islet transplantation is a therapeutic approach to prevent diabetes complications. However, the side effects of the required lifelong immunosuppressive regimens to prevent graft rejection restrict the impact of type 1 diabetes. One strategy to overcome these limitations is tolerance induction and graft acceptance through hematopoietic(More)
Activation of the receptor for advanced glycation endproducts (RAGE) by its ligands leads to cellular damage contributing to diabetic complications. It is not clearly known whether RAGE ligands influence pancreatic β-cells. In this study, we investigated the expression of RAGE in islet cells and the effect of RAGE ligands, S100b and HMG-1, on islet cells.(More)
One genus, Ornithoica Rondani, and two species, Ornithoica momiyamai Kishida, and O. unicolor Speiser, are reported for the first time from the Republic of Korea. A total of six species, including two new records, of louse flies were collected from 78 birds belonging to 35 species from Seoul and Incheon Metropolitan Areas and Gyeonggi, Gangwon,(More)
This study investigated the effect of local glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) production within mouse islets on cytoprotection in vitro and in vivo by gene transfer of GLP-1. Transduction of recombinant adenovirus vector expressing GLP-1 (rAd-GLP-1) induced a significant increase in bioactive GLP-1 in the mouse islet culture, whereas transduction with(More)
