Acinetobacter baumannii is an important nosocomial pathogen that causes a high morbidity and mortality rate in infected patients, but pathogenic mechanisms of this microorganism regarding the secretion and delivery of virulence factors to host cells have not been characterized. Gram-negative bacteria naturally secrete outer membrane vesicles (OMVs) that(More)
Circuit techniques for enabling a sub-0.9 V logic-compatible embedded DRAM (eDRAM) are presented. A boosted 3T gain cell utilizes Read Word-line (RWL) preferential boosting to increase read margin and improve data retention time. Read speed is enhanced with a hybrid current/voltage sense amplifier that allows the Read Bit-line (RBL) to remain close to VDD.(More)
BACKGROUND Human rotavirus genotypes G1-G4 and G9 are the major etiological agents of infantile gastroenteritis. G1 was the most prevalent in Korea during the 10-year period prior to 1997. However, between 1998 and 1999, G4 was the predominant type in Korea, as it was in other Asian countries. OBJECTIVES The circulating pattern and genetic variability of(More)
Gram-negative bacteria produce outer membrane vesicles that play a role in the delivery of virulence factors to host cells. However, little is known about the membrane-derived vesicles (MVs) produced by gram-positive bacteria. The present study examined the production of MVs from Staphylococcus aureus and investigated the delivery of MVs to host cells and(More)
In this study, we examined the use of polyethyleneimine (PEI) as a carrier for gene delivery in human adipose tissue-derived stem cells (hADSCs). These multipotent cells can form bone, cartilage, adipose, and other connective tissues. In primary culture, hADSCs are fibroblastic in appearance in primary culture, and they show a high rate of proliferation for(More)
Acinetobacter baumannii secretes outer membrane vesicles (OMVs) during both in vitro and in vivo growth, but the biogenesis mechanism by which A. baumannii produces OMVs remains undefined. Outer membrane protein A of A. baumannii (AbOmpA) is a major protein in the outer membrane and the C-terminus of AbOmpA interacts with diaminopimelate of peptidoglycan.(More)
Gram-negative bacteria produce extracellular outer membrane vesicles (OMVs) that interact with host cells. Unlike Gram-negative bacteria, less is known about the production and role of extracellular membrane vesicles (MVs) in Gram-positive bacteria. The food-borne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes can survive under extreme environmental and energy stress(More)
A novel coumarin-based fluorogenic probe bearing the 2-picolyl unit (1) was developed as a fluorescent chemosensor with high selectivity and suitable affinity in biological systems toward Cu(2+) over other cations tested. The fluorescence on-off mechanism was studied by femtosecond time-resolved fluorescence (TRF) upconversion technique and ab initio(More)
Bacteremia is a common systemic disease caused by Acinetobacter baumannii, an important hospital-acquired pathogen among critically ill patients. The complement system is central to innate immune defense against invading bacteria in the blood. The present study investigated the susceptibility of clinical A. baumannii isolates to normal human sera (NHS), and(More)
BAF53 (also known as ArpNbeta) is a nuclear arp that is a component of a number of chromatin-modifying complexes, such as the SWI/SNF and TRRAP complexes. These complexes play specific roles in chromatin remodeling and transcription. Previous studies have suggested that BAF53 is localized exclusively in the nucleus in HeLa and SW-13 cells. In this study,(More)
