Epigenetic regulation by CpG methylation has an important role in tumorigenesis as well as in the response to cancer therapy. To analyze the mechanism of epigenetic control of radiosensitivity, the CpG methylation profiles of radiosensitive H460 and radioresistant H1299 human non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell lines were analyzed using microarray(More)
Fungi (Cunninghamella elegans ATCC 9245, Mucor ramannianus R-56, Aspergillus niger VKMF-1119, and Phanerochaete chrysosporium BKMF-1767) were tested to elucidate the biologic fate of the topical insect repellent N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide (DEET). The elution profile obtained from analysis by high-pressure liquid chromatography equipped with a reverse-phase(More)
The ground state property of a Au-induced atomic wire array on a stepped Si(553) surface with interesting 1D metallic bands was investigated. Electron diffraction and scanning tunneling microscopy reveal an intriguing coexistence of triple- and double-period lattice distortions at low temperature. Angle-resolved photoemission observes both the nearly 1/3-(More)
To prepare novel hydrogels for use in water technologies, guar gum was subjected to acid hydrolysis. The depolymerized guar gum obtained there from and the native guar gum were oxidized to their respective polycarboxylic forms using NO(x) as oxidant. All these polymers were crosslinked with N,N-methylenebisacrylamide, and were used as Cu(2+) sorbents. The(More)
Recent investigations in the anti-microbial properties of the functional polymers are predominantly focused on the structure of the cationic moieties. In the present study, we investigated that the nature of the anion present in polysulfobetaines affects activity against certain microorganisms and their anti-microbial properties have been rationalized in(More)
A series of new bioactive polymers with pendant choline analogous group was prepared by anion exchange reaction direct at the quaternary nitrogen of the polycation. Poly(4-vinyl 2-hydroxyethyl pyridinium) chloride was prepared in situ by simultaneous polymerization and quaternization of 4-vinyl pyridine with 2-chloroethanol that also acts as catalyst. The(More)
One-dimensional atomic chains on Au/Si(557) feature two proximal 1D bands near the Fermi level, which were controversially attributed as a spinon-holon pair of a Luttinger liquid. Angle-resolved photoemission shows that only one band is metallic with the neighboring one gapped at room temperature. Furthermore, even the metallic branch is found to undergo a(More)
One dimensional (1D) metals are unstable at low temperature undergoing a metal-insulator transition coupled with a periodic lattice distortion, a Peierls transition. Angle-resolved photoemission study for the 1D metallic chains of In on Si(111), featuring a metal-insulator transition and triple metallic bands, clarifies in detail how the multiple band gaps(More)
We find that foreign adsorbates acting as local impurities can induce a metal-insulator transition by pinning a charge-density wave (CDW) on the quasi-1D metallic In/Si(111)-(4x1) chain system. Our scanning tunneling microscopy image clearly reveals the presence of a new local 4x2 structure nucleated by Na adatoms at room temperature, which turns out to be(More)
e15087 Background: There have been reports about the ethnic difference of toxicity profile to sunitinib. In Asian population, thrombocytopenia, neutropenia, and hand-foot syndrome (HFS) were more frequently reported. We aim to assess the pharmacogenetic determinants of these toxicities, which were developed after treatment with sunitinib in Korean patients(More)
