Only a small proportion of the mouse genome is transcribed into mature messenger RNA transcripts. There is an international collaborative effort to identify all full-length mRNA transcripts from the mouse, and to ensure that each is represented in a physical collection of clones. Here we report the manual annotation of 60,770 full-length mouse complementary(More)
BACKGROUND Mutations in fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF-23) cause autosomal dominant hypophosphatemic rickets. Clinical and laboratory findings in this disorder are similar to those in oncogenic osteomalacia, in which tumors abundantly express FGF-23 messenger RNA, and to those in X-linked hypophosphatemia, which is caused by inactivating mutations in a(More)
A subset of human growth hormone (GH)-secreting pituitary tumors contains the gsp oncogene that encodes an activation mutation of the alpha-subunit of the stimulatory GTP-binding protein (G(S) alpha). This study was undertaken to investigate the frequency of the gsp oncogene in GH-secreting pituitary tumors in Korean acromegalic patients and to elucidate(More)
The gene mutated in autosomal dominant hypophosphatemic rickets (ADHR), a phosphate wasting disorder, has been identified as FGF-23, a protein that shares sequence homology with fibroblast growth factors (FGFs). Patients with ADHR display many of the clinical and laboratory characteristics that are observed in patients with oncogenic hypophosphatemic(More)
Acute tumor lysis syndrome (TLS) occurs frequently in hematologic malignancies such as high-grade lymphomas and acute leukemia, which are rapidly proliferating and chemosensitive tumors. It occurs rarely in solid tumors and has never been reported in gastric adenocarcinoma. Typical biochemical findings of acute tumor lysis syndrome are hyperuricemia,(More)
PURPOSE To assess the frequency and degree of air trapping at thin-section computed tomography (CT) of the lung in relation to age and smoking history in asymptomatic subjects. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thin-section CT of the lung was performed prospectively at end inspiration and end expiration in 82 subjects (27 smokers, 55 nonsmokers) without any history(More)
Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are the most abundant form of genetic variations and have a great potential for mapping studies of complex genetic traits. Currently a great deal of effort is invested in the identification of SNPs, and a large volume of data is already available through public databases (NCBI, NCI, WICGR, HGBASE). For an association(More)
The antifungal effects of citral, eugenol, nerolidol and alpha-terpineol on Trichophyton mentagrophytes were investigated. Citral over 0.1 mg/ml strongly inhibited the hyphal growth of T. mentagrophytes, and the antifungal activity of alpha-terpineol was less effective. The morphological changes of the fungus exposed to the terpenes were observed by(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES In GH-secreting pituitary tumours somatostatin receptor density has been correlated with octreotide responsiveness. Little is known about the other endocrine characteristics of patients with good responses to octreotide. The purpose of this study was to determine the characteristics of these patients. PATIENTS We studied 30(More)
OBJECTIVES Although symptomatic propylthiouracil (PTU)-induced hepatic injury is known to be rare, there have been few reports about its exact incidence in patients with hyperthyroidism. We tried to evaluate its incidence in a single center and its clinical course. METHODS Medical records of 912 hyperthyroid patients who had been diagnosed between March(More)
