Sodium-dependent vitamin C transporters (SVCTs) is known to transport the reduced form of ascorbic acid into the cell, whereas the oxidized form of vitamin C (VC) is moved through a facilitative sugar transporter, such as glucose transporter (GLUT). With regard to the distribution of SVCT1 and -2 within the various organs, they were reported to be expressed(More)
An integrated flexible inductor is realized for wireless transcutaneous power transmission to implantable devices. Our method uses a mechanically flexible inductor which can be less invasively implanted in, or more easily attached to, the human body. The inductor pair is used for wireless power transmission. The primary inductor is attached on the(More)
OBJECTIVES The mucociliary transport system is a major defense mechanism of the respiratory tract. The performance of mucous transportation in the nasal cavity can be represented by a ciliary beating frequency (CBF). This study proposes a novel method to measure CBF by using optical flow. METHODS To obtain objective estimates of CBF from video images, an(More)
OBJECTIVE α-Melanocyte-stimulating hormone (α-MSH) and agouti-related peptide (AgRP) control energy homeostasis by their opposing actions on melanocortin receptors (MC3/4R) in the hypothalamus. We previously reported that thyroid transcription factor-1 (TTF-1) controls feeding behavior in the hypothalamus. This study aims to identify the function of TTF-1(More)
UNLABELLED Microvascular invasion (MVI) in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is an independent predictor of poor outcomes subsequent to surgical resection or liver transplantation (LT); however, MVI currently cannot be adequately determined preoperatively. Radiogenomic venous invasion (RVI) is a contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) biomarker of MVI(More)
Major orbital complications after the endoscopic sinus surgeries are rare and of these, optic nerve injury is one of the most serious. This study was to undertaken to analyze 3 cases of optic nerve injury after endoscopic sinus surgery. The three cases included one patient with a loss of visual acuity and visual field defect, and two patients with total(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Plasma leptin level during pregnancy has been reported as a biochemical predictor of postpartum weight retention. The objective of this study was to determine the relationship between pregnancy-related factors including plasma leptin and postpartum weight retention in Korean women. METHODS A convenience sampling method was used(More)
A new silicon based multi chip white LED PKG for high power application is designed, fabricated and tested. The package is composed of Al layer coated reflector cup, silicon base which has micro through via hole for interconnection, and micro lens. Compared to the most conventional single chip LED PKG, multi chip white LED PKG has many advantages in cost,(More)
BACKGROUND Even though the olfactory function usually is improved or unchanged after ethmoidectomy, some patients complain of olfactory disturbance, which may be caused by direct injury to the olfactory nerves. However, the detailed anatomic pathway of the olfactory nerves that leave the olfactory mucosa and after going through the cribriform plate insert(More)
Large area thin films of few-layered unfunctionalized graphene platelets are developed with fine control over the thickness. The thin films are obtained by a Langmuir-Blodgett assembly at the interface of graphene solution in N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP) and water, and their optoelectronic properties and conduction mechanism are investigated in relation to(More)
