Myogenic factor 5 (Myf5) and POU class 1 homeobox 1 (POU1F1) genes play important roles in growth and development of mammals. Bovine Myf5 and POU1F1 were characterized to detect genetic variation at these loci and to replace them to economic traits in 367 cattle representing Hanwoo (325) and Angus (37). Two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were(More)
Phospholipid transfer protein (PLTP) regulates high-density lipoprotein metabolism. The gene encoding PLTP is located on bovine chromosome 13. The objective of this study was to identify single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the Hanwoo (Bos taurus coreanae) PLTP gene to detect novel mutations affecting economically important traits. Five SNPs were(More)
During the past year, a series of studies have provided new perspectives about genetic diversity in Helicobacter pylori. The results illustrate how the current revolution in genomics and proteomics is being used to understand how this organism co-evolves with its host. The approaches should have broad applications to other host-bacterium relationships.
PURPOSE Studies show that residents trained in patient-centered interviewing (PCI) are more effective in handling patients' emotions and are more skillful in gathering patients' data. This study evaluated the long-term use of PCI skills. METHOD Fourteen residents received PCI training during internship, and their skills were evaluated before, immediately(More)
