Human peroxiredoxin 1 (hPrx1), a member of the peroxiredoxin family, detoxifies peroxide substrates and has been implicated in numerous biological processes, including cell growth, proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis, and redox signaling. To date, Prx1 has not been implicated in RNA metabolism. Here, we investigated the ability of hPrx1 to bind RNA(More)
Differences in the cardiovascular responses of individuals with behavior patterns of Type A and Type B were investigated during rest, stress, and recovery by visual stimulation. Thirty healthy undergraduate and graduate students (mean age: 22.18+/-1.44 years) were categorized as Type A (N=14), or Type B (N=16) based on the Kwansei Gakuin's daily life(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Previous studies on the difference in phenotypes and disease course between familial and sporadic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have been controversial, although family history is considered to increase the risk of developing IBD. METHODS The influence of family history on phenotype and disease course of IBD was analysed in 2805(More)
Estrogen receptor α (ERα) is the pivotal regulator of proliferation and differentiation in mammary epithelia, where it serves as a crucial prognostic marker and therapeutic target in breast cancer. In this study, we show that the loss of the kinase TANK-binding kinase 1 (TBK1) induces epithelial-mesenchymal transition in ERα-positive breast cancer cells by(More)
Experimental tumors growing in irradiated tissue have been used to study the biological differences characteristic of locally recurrent tumors. Since the hypoxic cell fraction of tumors growing in irradiated tissue is increased and growth rate is slowed, these tumors are assumed to be metabolically deprived with hypoperfusion. In this study, we directly(More)
Myd88 is an important adaptor molecule for the activation of NADPH oxidase and arginase-1, which are responsible for the suppressive function of myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs). When wild-type and Myd88(-/-) mice were subcutaneously injected with CT26 colon cancer cells expressing human Her-2/neu, tumor growth was retarded in Myd88(-/-) mice than(More)
The recent increase in the number of cases of indigenous hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection highlights the importance of identifying the transmission routes for the prevention of such infections. Presented herein is the first case of acute HEV infection after ingesting wild roe deer meat in South Korea. A 43-year-old male presented with abdominal discomfort(More)
BACKGROUND In Korea, the prevalence, complications, and mortality rate of diabetes are rapidly increasing. However, investigations on the actual condition of diabetes management are very limited due to lack of nation-wide research or multicenter study. Hence, we have minutely inquired the current status of diabetes management and achievement of glucose(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the optimal cutoff value of serum adenosine deaminase (ADA) activity for diagnosing scrub typhus in acute febrile patients, especially in the autumn. A total of 715 febrile patients were included; 286 of them were diagnosed with acute scrub typhus. The mean serum ADA activities in patients with and without scrub(More)
BACKGROUND Cytomegalovirus (CMV) colitis can contribute to an unfavorable outcome of acute severe ulcerative colitis (ASUC). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical outcomes of ASUC according to the CMV status and identify risk factors for CMV colitis in patients with ASUC. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed patients with ASUC from 2011 to(More)
