How transmitter receptors modulate neuronal signaling by regulating voltage-gated ion channel expression remains an open question. Here we report dendritic localization of mRNA of Kv4.2 voltage-gated potassium channel, which regulates synaptic plasticity, and its local translational regulation by fragile X mental retardation protein (FMRP) linked to fragile(More)
The DNA sequences of wheat Acc-1 and Acc-2 loci, encoding the plastid and cytosolic forms of the enzyme acetyl-CoA carboxylase, were analyzed with a view to understanding the evolution of these genes and the origin of the three genomes in modern hexaploid wheat. Acc-1 and Acc-2 loci from each of the wheats Triticum urartu (A genome), Aegilops tauschii (D(More)
BACKGROUND It is well known that cardiac rehabilitation (CR) including regular exercise training (ET) is cardioprotective with respect to clinical events in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). However, it is not known whether the regular ET may affect coronary restenosis after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with stenting in AMI. The(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence and correlates of depressive symptoms in the largest number of Korean individuals examined to date. We analyzed cross-sectional data collected from 229,595 Korean adults aged 19 yr and above who participated in a Korean Community Health Survey conducted in 2009. The Center for Epidemiologic Studies(More)
Mammalian phospholipase D (PLD) is considered a key enzyme in the transmission signals from various receptors including muscarinic receptors. PLD activation is a rapid and transient process, but a negative regulator has not been found that inhibits signal-dependent PLD activation. Here, for the first time, we report that tubulin binding to PLD2 is an(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the location of interstitial cells of Cajal-like cells and the ureteral aspect using histopathologic studies of obstructive and refluxing megaureters to reveal the different pathogenesis of megaureters in the human urinary tract. The underlying pathophysiology of obstructive megaureter and refluxing megaureter is poorly understood. (More)
2,3,7,8-Tedtrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) is one of the most toxic endocrine disruptors and has been reported to induce oxidative stress in the reproductive organs. However, the mechanism by which TCDD induces oxidative stress is unclear. The aim of this study is to examine the role of the general cytokine, TGF-beta1, in TCDD-induced oxidative stress in(More)
Insulin secretion from pancreatic beta-cells is an important process that affects the regulation of glucose level in the blood. In our previous study, we suggested that epidermal growth factor (EGF) stimulates insulin secretion by activating phospholipase D2 (PLD2) [H.Y. Lee, K. Yea, J. Kim, B.D. Lee, Y.C. Chae, H.S. Kim, D.W. Lee, S.H. Kim, J.H. Cho, C.J.(More)
STUDY DESIGN An experimental study of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of spine in an ex vivo bovine and in vivo swine animal model. OBJECTIVE To study the feasibility of RFA for spine tumors close to the spinal cord, to examine the safety and efficacy of RFA, and to suggest quantitative guidelines for clinical application. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA RFA(More)
Dynamin is a large GTP-binding protein that mediates endocytosis by hydrolyzing GTP. Previously, we reported that phospholipase D2 (PLD2) interacts with dynamin in a GTP-dependent manner. This implies that PLD may regulate the GTPase cycle of dynamin. Here, we show that PLD functions as a GTPase activating protein (GAP) through its phox homology domain(More)
