Cold tolerance at the seedling stage of rice is an important phenotypic trait that causes normal plant growth and stable rice production in temperate regions as well as tropical high-lands in Asia and Africa. In order to find quantitative trait loci (QTLs)/genes associated with cold tolerance, we constructed a linkage map using 153 recombinant inbred lines(More)
We recently experienced a 43-year-old man with a large, multiloculated, cystic tumor that appeared on the pelvis. The tumor was composed of glands and cysts lined by prostatic-type epithelium and attached microscopically to the prostate by a pedicle. The prostatic nature of the lesions was confirmed by immunohistochemical staining of epithelium for prostate(More)
The objective of this work was to provide a new, precise registration of the cortical mantle with a non-linear transformation. Image registration is broadly classified into two types, using intensity similarity and feature similarity. Whereas the former approach has merit in global brain matching, the latter provides a fast registration centred on a region(More)
 Background. In view of the fact that a basal craniectomy in microvascular decompression (MVD) for hemifacial spasm (HFS) can minimize cerebellar retraction and expose the facial nerve root exit zone (FNREZ) directly from below without placement of tension on the seventh-eighth cranial nerve complex, we used a more basal approach in 32 patients with typical(More)
Histidine decarboxylase (HDC) catalyzes the formation of histamine from histidine. Histamine has various effects in physiological and pathological reactions, such as inflammation, cell growth, and neuro-transmission. We investigated the role of hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF)-1 on hypoxia-induced HDC expression in human mast cell line, HMC-1 cells and mouse(More)
This study aimed to find out the morbid status of Korean physicians living in Korea, as one part of a feasibility study on the Korean physician cohort. It was performed by mail survey using a self-administered questionnaire from Jan. 1, 1995 through Dec. 31, 1995. Study subjects were 21,552 including 17,877 (81.1%) males and 3,384 (15.5%) females.

This study is aimed at investigating the etiology and clinical characteristics of mesenteric adenitis in Korean adults, prospectively. Clinical manifestations of fifteen patients who presented with the acute onset of right lower quadrant pain and sonographically enlarged mesenteric lymph nodes and normal appendix were evaluated. For etiologic diagnosis,(More)
Retinoic acids may inhibit vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation, but may promote endothelial cell proliferation in cell culture. However, little data are available about the effects of all-trans-retinoic acid (ATRA) on endothelial regeneration and functional recovery in an experimental model of vascular injury. Accordingly, we investigated whether ATRA(More)
We attempted to generate a linkage map using Illumina Porcine 60K SNP Beadchip genotypes of the F2 offspring from Korean native pig (KNP) crossed with Yorkshire (YS) pig, and to identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) using the line-cross model. Among the genotype information of the 62,136 SNPs obtained from the high-density SNP analysis, 45,308 SNPs were(More)
