Salicylic acid is a messenger molecule in the activation of defense responses in plants. In this study, we isolated four cDNA clones representing salicylic acid-induced genes in Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa subsp. pekinensis) by subtractive hybridization. Of the four clones, the BC5-2 clone encodes a putative glucosyltransferase protein. The BC5-3 clone(More)
OBJECTIVES Fetal lung maturation and respiratory outcomes are influenced by the exposure to intrauterine inflammation. Funisitis is considered as the histologic hallmark of fetal inflammatory response. This study was performed to determine if there is a difference in the rate of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) according to the presence or(More)
PURPOSE To determine the relative effect of birth weight and gestational age on retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) using preterm twin pairs discordant for birth weight. METHODS This study was a retrospective cohort study including 55 consecutive twin pairs of 110 preterm infants (gestational age ≤33 weeks). The outcomes of ROP including occurrence (any(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop a model based on non-invasive variables to predict the probability of intra-amniotic inflammation in women with preterm labor and intact membranes. METHODS Transvaginal ultrasonography and digital examination for the assessment of cervical length and cervical dilatation were performed, and maternal blood was collected for the(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the relative predictive values of amniotic fluid (AF) matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9), interleukin-6 (IL-6), and serum C-reactive protein (CRP) for histologic chorioamnionitis and intra-amniotic infection in women with preterm labor or preterm premature rupture of membranes (PROM). STUDY DESIGN This retrospective cohort study(More)
Annexin A2 (ANXA2) expression is highly upregulated in many types of cancer. Although cell surface localization of ANXA2 has been reported to have a critical role in the progression and metastasis of a variety of tumors, including pancreatic cancer, the biological role of intracellular ANXA2 is not fully understood. Herein the role of intracellular ANXA2(More)
Acute renal failure (ARF) with severe loin pain induced by anaerobic exercise is a rare condition that is accompanied by wedge-shaped contrast enhancement seen on computerized tomographic (CT) scan without evidence of rhabdomyolysis. An 18-year-old Korean male was transferred to our hospital for evaluation of mild azotemia, that developed after anaerobic(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The method of treating an HIVD in the lumbar spine may depend on the integrity of the PLL. The purpose of this study was to analyze and compare the MR imaging findings of extraligamentous and subligamentous HIVDs in the lumbar spine. MATERIAL AND METHODS One hundred seventeen patients (M/F = 71:46; mean age, 47 years; age range,(More)
