The bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-2 is a potent osteoinductive signal, inducing bone formation in vivo and osteoblast differentiation from non-osseous cells in vitro. The runt domain-related protein Cbfa1/PEBP2alphaA/AML-3 is a critical component of bone formation in vivo and transcriptional regulator of osteoblast differentiation. To investigate the(More)
Previous linkage analysis of an Asian population proposed possible candidate genes for mandibular prognathism, such as Matrilin-1 (cartilage matrix protein). To investigate the association between the single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in Matrilin-1 and mandibular prognathism, we investigated three sequence variants (-158 T>C, 7987 G>A, 8572 C>T) in 164(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE An ESI for managing LBP is one of the most commonly performed interventions. The purpose of this observational study was to assess the effect of a therapeutic trial of a fluoroscopic interlaminar ESI for axial LBP and to analyze the outcome predictors. MATERIALS AND METHODS All patients who received an interlaminar ESI for axial LBP(More)
Runx2 (previously known as Cbfal/Pebp2alphaA/AML3), a key transcription factor in osteoblast differentiation, has at least two different isoforms using alternative promoters, which suggests that the isoforms might be expressed differentially. Haploinsufficiency of the Runx2 gene is associated with cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD), the main phenotype of which(More)
Integration of stimulation modalities (e.g. electrical, optical, and chemical) on a large array of neural probes can enable an investigation of important underlying mechanisms of brain disorders that is not possible through neural recordings alone. Furthermore, it is important to achieve this integration of multiple functionalities in a compact structure to(More)
A novel artificial bone substitute composed of bioactive MegaGen synthetic bone (MGSB) and hyaluronate (HA) hydrogels was successfully developed for bone tissue engineering applications. HA is known to play important roles in bone regeneration due to its angiogenic and osteoconductive characteristics. Accordingly, HA hydrogel was designed to supply HA(More)
Multi-functional neural probes are promising platforms to conduct efficient and effective in-depth studies of brain by recording neural signals as well as modulating the signals with various stimuli. Here we present a neural probe with an embedded microfluidic channel (chemtrode) with multi-drug delivery capability suitable for small animal experiments. We(More)
