PURPOSE To determine the a-wave latency of the electroretinograms (ERGs) recorded from control subjects and patients with retinal diseases. METHODS The a-wave latency and implicit time (IT) were measured retrospectively from the ERGs of 40 control subjects and 99 patients. The patients included 9 with complete congenital stationary night blindness(More)
AIM To evaluate a mixed micellar drug delivery system composed of sodium cholate and phospholipid for oral administration of silybin, a promising hepatoprotectants. METHODS The optimum formulation of sodium cholate/phospholipid-mixed micelles containing silybin was obtained based on the study of pseudo-ternary phase diagram. The dissolution of(More)
(−)-Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) is the most abundant catechin in green tea. In this study, we found that hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection was significantly suppressed by EGCG in an HCV cell culture (HCVcc) system using a JFH1-GFP chimeric virus, with a 50 % effective concentration (EC50) of 17.9 μM. The inhibitory activity of EGCG was confirmed by(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether measurements of the a-wave latency of the electroretinogram (ERG) can be made as reliably as that of the implicit time (IT) in rats. In addition, to determine the relationship between the potential level selected for the latency and the baseline potential level. METHODS ERGs, elicited by different stimulus intensities, were(More)
PURPOSE To identify the retinal cells that determine the a-wave latency of rats. METHODS Electroretinograms (ERGs) were recorded from the rod-dominated (0.85% cones) retinas of Long-Evans rats following an intravitreal injection of 1 microL of 40 mM 2-amino-4-phosphonobutyric acid to block the activity of the ON pathway of the second order retinal(More)
Outer membrane (OM) proteins play a significant role in bacterial pathogenesis. In this work, we examined and compared the expression of the OM proteins of the rice pathogen Acidovorax avenae subsp. avenae strain RS-1, a Gram-negative bacterium, both in an in vitro culture medium and in vivo rice plants. Global proteomic profiling of A. avenae subsp. avenae(More)
Small nucleolar RNAs (snoRNAs) orchestrate the modification and cleavage of pre-rRNA and are essential for ribosome biogenesis. Recent data suggest that after nucleoplasmic synthesis, snoRNAs transiently localize to the Cajal body (in plant and animal cells) or the homologous nucleolar body (in budding yeast) for maturation and assembly into snoRNPs prior(More)
Outer membrane proteins (OMPs) are integral β-barrel proteins of the Gram-negative bacterial cell wall and are crucial to bacterial survival within the macrophages and for eukaryotic cell invasion. Here, we used liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) to comprehensively assess the outer membrane proteome of Burkholderia cenocepacia, an(More)
