The aim of this study was to evaluate whether hysterectomy or the use of graft is necessary for the reconstructive surgery for uterine prolapse. One hundred sixty-eight patients were categorized into the 3 groups: group I, abdominosacral colpopexy with mesh and hysterectomy (n = 63); group II, abdominosacral uteropexy with mesh (n = 35); group III,(More)
Tissue transglutaminase (tTGase) is a member of calcium-dependent transamidation enzyme family, but a detailed regulation mechanism of tTGase by intracellular Ca(2+) is not clearly understood. Arachidonic acid (AA) and maitotoxin (MTX) activated tTGase in a dose- and time-dependent manner. Transfection of tTGase siRNA largely inhibited tTGase expression and(More)
We have investigated whether arachidonic acid could regulate tissue transglutaminase (tTGase) via intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) in NIH3T3 cells. tTGase was identified in NIH3T3 cells by Western blot and confocal microscopy. Arachidonic acid elevated in situ tTGase activity in dose- and time-dependent manners with a maximal level at 1h, and ROS(More)
BACKGROUND To better understand the potential ecotoxicological impacts of silver nanoparticles released into freshwater environments, the Daphnia magna 48-hour immobilization test was used. METHODS The toxicities of silver nitrate, two types of colloidal silver nanoparticles, and a suspension of silver nanoparticles were assessed and compared using(More)
We developed a simple, versatile method of integrating hybrid thin films of reduced graphene oxide (RGO) nanosheets with multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) via LbL assembly. This approach involves the electrostatic interactions of two oppositely charged suspensions of the RGO nanosheet with MWNTs. This method affords a hybrid multilayer of graphenes with(More)
We examined the relationship between cardiac output (CO) and mixed venous-arterialPco 2 gradient ( $$\bar v - aPco_2 $$ ) along with the other variables derived from arterial and/or mixed venous blood gases in sodium bicarbonate-treated dogs. Six dogs with low cardiac output following cardiopulmonary resuscitation were used. CO, blood gases, and hemoglobin(More)
Steroid cell tumors of the ovary are extremely rare, accounting for only 0.1% of all ovarian tumors. Of these, steroid cell tumors, not otherwise specified (NOS) constitute about 56% of all steroid cell tumors. Most steroid cell tumors secrete steroid hormones, and only about 10% to 15% of patients are asymptomatic. The morphology of steroid cell tumors,(More)
Since 1987, dura mater graft-associated iatrogenic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (dCJD) has been reported in many countries. We report the first case of dCJD in Korea. A 54-yr-old woman, who underwent resection of the meningioma in the left frontal region and received a dura mater graft 23 yr ago presented with dysesthesia followed by psychiatric symptoms and(More)
