Polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) can be divided into Gr-1(high) and Gr-1(low) subpopulations, but the differences in the functions of these cells in the host are unknown. This study investigated the roles of these two cell populations in the clearance of an intracellular pathogen (Haemophilus influenzae) causing murine peritonitis and pneumonia.(More)
A synthesis is reported of 17-hydroxyprogesterone, labeled with four atoms of deuterium at ring C and suitable for use as an internal standard for isotope dilution mass spectrometry. Base-catalyzed equilibration of methyl 3 alpha-acetoxy-12-oxo-cholanate (III) with 2H2O, followed by reduction of the 12-oxo group by the modified Wolff-Kisher method using(More)
We screened patients with choroideremia using next-generation sequencing (NGS) and identified a novel mutation and a known mutation in the CHM gene. One patient presented an atypical fundus appearance for choroideremia. Another patient presented macular hole retinal detachment in the left eye. The present case series shows the utility of NGS-based screening(More)
Bile acids in serum, urine and dialysate of 8 patients with renal failure in chronic hemodialysis were analyzed by gas chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. The following results were obtained: 1. Lithocholic acid, 3 beta-hydroxy-5-cholen-24-oic acid, deoxycholic acid, chenodeoxycholic acid, ursodeoxycholic acid, and cholic acid were(More)
