Plant development and physiology are widely determined by the polar transport of the signaling molecule auxin. This process is controlled on the cellular efflux level catalyzed by members of the PIN (pin-formed) and ABCB (ATP-binding cassette protein subfamily B)/P-glycoprotein family that can function independently and coordinately. In this study, we have(More)
As in other countries, type 2 diabetes is major health concern in Korea. A dramatic increase in the prevalence of type 2 diabetes and its chronic complications has led to an increase in health costs and economic burdens. Early detection of high risk individuals, hidden diabetic patients, and improvement in the quality of care for the disease are the first(More)
The incidence of breast cancer is related to various risk factors, especially that the environmental and lifestyle factors account for major contribution at the rate of 70% to 95% over all. However, there still remains some controversy over the epidemiological evidence regarding the effects of environmental carcinogens on the risk of breast cancer. We(More)
Bony defects have been three-dimensionally (3D) created in many clinical circumstances; however, many defects cannot be reconstructed because most of the current bony substitutes cannot provide the necessary exact 3D structure. Therefore, to overcome this limitation, a 3D scaffold with embedded growth factor-delivering microspheres was developed by solid(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of the current study was to investigate the association of obesity level, physical fitness level, hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) level and metabolic syndrome (MetS) risk factors among Korean adults. METHODS A total of 557 adults (272 males and 285 females) who underwent medical check-up at local hospital were recruited. In addition to(More)
OBJECTIVES The facial bones are the most noticeable area in the human body, and facial injuries can cause significant functional, aesthetic, and psychological complications. Continuous study of the patterns of facial bone fractures and changes in trends is helpful in the prevention and treatment of maxillofacial fractures. The purpose of the current(More)
Recovery of acetic acid (HAc) from the waste etching solution discharged from silicon wafer manufacturing process has been attempted by using solvent extraction process. For this purpose 2-ethylhexyl alcohol (EHA) was used as organic solvent. In the pre-treatment stage >99% silicon and hydrofluoric acid was removed from the solution by precipitation. The(More)
Bacterial biofilms are responsible for a wide range of persistent infections. In the clinic, diagnosis of biofilm-associated infections relies heavily on culturing methods, which fail to detect nonculturable bacteria. Identification of novel fluorescent probes for biofilm imaging will greatly facilitate diagnosis of pathogenic bacterial infection. Herein,(More)
A 5-year-old male neutered Siamese cat was referred because of nasal swelling, nasal discharge, and oral respiration. Computed tomography and necropsy following euthanasia revealed a firm tan mass in the nasopharynx, occluding the nasal passage. Histologically, the nasopharyngeal mass was composed of solid nests, anastomosing cords, and closely packed(More)
