Iridovirus is a causative agent of epizootics among cultured rock bream (Oplegnathus fasciatus) in Korea. Here, we report the complete genomic sequence of rock bream iridovirus (RBIV). The genome of RBIV was 112080 bp long and contained at least 118 putative open reading frames (ORFs), and its genome organization was similar to that of infectious spleen and(More)
In this study, the immunological effect of silver nanoparticles on innate immunity was investigated using primary human monocytes. After exposure to silver nanoparticles, production of IL-1β, a critical cytokine involved in induction of innate immunity, significantly increased as particle size decreased. These results suggest that silver nanoparticles may(More)
DNA barcoding, an inventory of DNA sequences from a standardized genomic region, provides a bio-barcode for identifying and discovering species. Several recent studies suggest that the sequence diversity in a 648 bp region of the mitochondrial gene for cytochrome c oxi- dase I (COI) might serve as a DNA barcode for identify- ing animal species such as North(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the clinical characteristics and angiographic findings of spontaneous idiopathic subarachnoid hemorrhage (ISAH) and to compare these with those of aneurysmal SAH (ASAH). We retrospectively reviewed the clinical characteristics and venograms of 118 consecutive patients with ISAH during the past 10years for possible(More)
Temporal databases introduce the concept of time into underlying data, and provide built-in facilities that allow users to store and retrieve time-varying data. The aggregation in temporal databases, that is, temporal aggregation is an extension of conventional aggregation on the domain and range of aggregates to include time concept. Temporal aggregation(More)
In this paper we compute electroweak contributions to the production of squark pairs at hadron colliders. These include the exchange of electroweak gauge bosons in the s−channel as well as electroweak gaugino exchange in the t− and/or u−channel. In many cases these can interfere with the dominant QCD contributions. As a result, we find sizable contributions(More)
BACKGROUND Some patients with spontaneous intracranial hypotension (SIH) often do not demonstrate typical orthostatic headache, which is contrary to the typical SIH syndrome. They usually have an obscure and intermittent headache, regardless of their positional change. OBJECT The objective of this study is to investigate the clinical course of atypical(More)
Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and embryonal carcinoma cells (ECCs) possess the remarkable property of self-renewal and differentiation potency. They are model preparations for investigating the underlying mechanisms of "stemness". microRNAs are recently discovered small noncoding RNAs with a broad spectrum of functions, especially in control of development.(More)
Propionic acidemia (PA) is an autosomal recessive inborn error in the catabolism of methionine, isoleucine, threonine, and valine, odd-numbered chain length fatty acids and cholesterol. Clinical symptoms are very heterogeneous and present as a severe neonatal-onset or a late-onset form. It is caused by a deficiency of propionyl-CoA carboxylase (PCC, EC(More)
Cisplatin is a widely used chemotherapeutic agent in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Resistance to cisplatin is a common feature of HNSCC. To identify genes that may regulate cisplatin sensitivity, we carried out a cDNA microarray analysis of gene expression in cisplatin-sensitive and cisplatin-resistant HNSCC-derived cell lines. Among genes(More)
