We have shown previously that the inactivation of macrophages in nonobese diabetic (NOD) mice results in the prevention of diabetes; however, the mechanisms involved remain unknown. In this study, we found that T cells in a macrophage-depleted environment lost their ability to differentiate into beta cell-cytotoxic T cells, resulting in the prevention of(More)
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) results from the destruction of pancreatic beta cells. Genetic factors are believed to be a major component for the development of T1D, but the concordance rate for the development of diabetes in identical twins is only about 40%, suggesting that nongenetic factors play an important role in the expression of the disease. Viruses are(More)
This paper proposes hybrid distributed stochastic addressing (HDSA), which combines the advantages of distributed addressing and stochastic addressing, to solve the problems encountered when constructing a network in a ZigBee-based wireless sensor network. HDSA can assign all the addresses for ZigBee beyond the limit of addresses assigned by the existing(More)
BACKGROUND Trophinin is an intrinsic membrane protein that forms a complex in the cytoplasm with bystin and tastin, linking it microtubule-associated motor dynein (ATPase) in some cell types. Previously, we found that human sperm tails contain trophinin, bystin and tastin proteins, and that trophinin-binding GWRQ (glycine, tryptophan, arginine, glutamine)(More)
The dried seeds of Biota orientalis are considered to be moistening and brightening one’s complexion. Ancient Chinese and Korean herbal textbook also reference it as a treatment of skin disorders like alopecia, scabies and tinea. However, no study has looked at the possible mechanism and molecular rationale of healing potential of B. orientalis. This study(More)
This study described the levels of anger, anger expression, and suicidal ideation in Korean adolescents. Data from 18,752 adolescents were collected using a self-report questionnaire. Anger, anger expression, and suicidal ideation exhibited significant differences according to school level and gender. The group with higher anger and anger expression showed(More)
from the progressive destruction of insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells, which leads to the development of hypoinsulinaemia and hyperglycaemia [1±8]. It is believed that genetic factors are a major component in the aetiology of Type I diabetes because a strong association has been observed between susceptibility to Type I diabetes and specific alleles(More)
