MiniX-STR multiplex system population study in Japan and application to degraded DNA analysis
We sought to evaluate a more effective system for analyzing X-chromosomal short tandem repeats (X-STRs) in highly degraded DNA. To generate smaller amplicon lengths, we designed new polymerase chainExpand

RNA LEGO: magnesium-dependent formation of specific RNA assemblies through kissing interactions.
The high affinity and specificity of nucleic acid base complementarity has been proven to be a powerful method for constructing specific molecular assemblies. On the other hand, recent structuralExpand

Accumulation of hepatic phospholipids in rats fed di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate.
Abstract Feeding normal or low protein diets containing di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP), a plasticizer commonly used, at a 0.5 per cent level to young rats for 10 days resulted in an enlargement ofExpand

Long-term intake of a high zinc diet causes iron deficiency anemia accompanied by reticulocytosis and extra-medullary erythropoiesis.
To elucidate the pathophysiology of zinc (Zn)-induced iron (Fe) deficiency anemia (IDA), we examined hemoglobin (Hb) concentrations, hematocrit (Ht) levels, numbers of circulating red blood cellsExpand

Temperature-dependent reaction of flufenamic acid with rat erythrocyte membrane.
Abstract (1) Effect of flufenamic acid on hypotonie hemolysis of rat erythrocytes was investigated with special reference to temperature at which hemolysis took place. At low temperature such as 0 orExpand

Immunohistochemical localization of αl-antitrypsin and αl-antichymotrypsin in salivary pleomorphic adenomas
Immunohistochemical identification of αl-antitrypsin (αl-AT) and αl-antichymotrypsin (αl-ACh) in pleomorphic adenomas of salivary glands is reported in order to compare their distribution profilesExpand
