Human norovirus (HuNoV) is the most common cause of gastroenteritis worldwide. The lack of a virus culture system makes it difficult to determine the viability of norovirus by only reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) or real-time quantitative RT-PCR (qRT-PCR). The aim of this study was to investigate the detection of viable murine(More)
Abnormal accumulation of undigested macromolecules, often disease-specific, is a major feature of lysosomal and neurodegenerative disease and is frequently attributed to defective autophagy. The mechanistic underpinnings of the autophagy defects are the subject of intense research, which is aided by genetic disease models. To gain an improved understanding(More)
Software testing is a core activity in quality assurance. To improve the test process, we can use best practice models which describe in detail what to do in organizational test processes. The improvement activities using best practice models are performed as follows: checking the current status of test processes, suggesting and planning new actions, and(More)
This study aimed to inhibit Escherichia coli (E. coli) O157:H7 artificially contaminated in fresh meat using bacteriophage. Among 14 bacteriophages, the highly lytic bacteriophage BPECO19 strain was selected to inhibit E. coli O157:H7 in artificially contaminated meat samples. Bacteriophage BPECO19 significantly reduced E. coli O157:H7 bacterial load in(More)
This study was conducted to develop a multiplex reverse transcription (RT) PCR for the detection of Anisakis allergens and to investigate the relationship between allergen profiles and anisakid larvae isolated from Scomber japonicus, Trichiurus lepturus, and Conger myriaster in Korea. The species of Anisakis was determined using Anisakis pegreffii-specific(More)
A simple but effective frit formation technique was developed to stabilize the packing structure inside the microchannel of capillary electrochromatographic microchips, utilizing the electroless plating technique. A Ag(NH(3))(2)(+) solution was allowed to diffuse through the colloidal silica packing in the microchannel from the reservoir of the microchip(More)
The aim of this study was to isolate and characterize Bacillus cereus bacteriophages of various origins. Twenty-seven bacteriophages against B. cereus were isolated from various Korean traditional fermented foods and soils. Plaque size, transmission electron microscopy, virulence profile, and in vitro lytic activity of bacteriophage isolates were examined.(More)
