Cultivated soybean (Glycine max) suffers from a narrow germplasm relative to other crop species, probably because of under-use of wild soybean (Glycine soja) as a breeding resource. Use of a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping array is a promising method for dissecting cultivated and wild germplasms to identify important adaptive genes through(More)
Discovery of new germplasm sources and identification of haplotypes for the durable Soybean mosaic virus resistance gene, Rsv 4, provide novel resources for map-based cloning and genetic improvement efforts in soybean. The Soybean mosaic virus (SMV) resistance locus Rsv4 is of interest because it provides a durable type of resistance in soybean [Glycine max(More)
We performed a nationwide epidemiological study to evaluate the prevalence and characteristics of nocturnal enuresis (NE) in Korean adolescents and adults. A questionnaire was sent via e-mail to 51,073 people aged 16-40 yr by stratified sampling according to age, sex, and region among a 200,000 internet survey panel pool. The questionnaire included(More)
To identify factors affecting spontaneous resolution of hematuria in children with nutcracker syndrome, 20 patients diagnosed as having nutcracker syndrome using renal Doppler ultrasound (US) were analyzed retrospectively. Sixteen patients had microscopic hematuria, and four had gross hematuria at presentation. The mean age was 10.6 years (range 2.5-14(More)
In 2009, the first outbreak of hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) or herpangina (HP) caused by enterovirus 71 occurred in the Republic of Korea. This study inquired into risk factors associated with complications of HFMD or HP. A retrospective medical records review was conducted on HFMD or HP patients for whom etiologic viruses had been verified in 2009.(More)
Recent studies on species coexistence suggest that density dependence is an important mechanism regulating plant populations. However, there have been few studies of density dependence conducted for more than one life-history stage or that control for habitat heterogeneity, which may influence spatial patterns of survival and mask density dependence. We(More)
BACKGROUND School urinary mass screening tests are performed to make early diagnosis and provide proper treatment for chronic renal diseases. However, very few systemic analyses or studies have been reported regarding final diagnosis made on children with abnormal urinary screening results. AIM To study the cases of renal biopsy in children detected in(More)
To evaluate the efficacy of cyclosporin A (CyA) for treating severe Henoch-Schönlein nephritis (HSN), seven patients with nephrotic syndrome, aged 3.9-13.8 years (mean 6.5 years), were analyzed retrospectively. Mean follow-up times were 5.5 years (range 2-9 years). All underwent renal biopsy before treatment, and follow-up renal biopsy was performed in six(More)
