In the marine mollusk Aplysia, the CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein, ApC/EBP, serves as an immediate early gene in the consolidation of long-term facilitation in the synaptic connection between the sensory and motor neurons of the gill-withdrawal reflex. To further examine the role of ApC/EBP as a molecular switch of a stable form of long-term memory, we(More)
Xmas is an extensible main-memory storage system for high-performance embedded database applications. Xmas not only provides the core functionality of DBMS, such as data persistence, crash recovery, and concurrency control, but also pursues an extensible architecture to meet the requirements from various application areas. One crucial aspect of such(More)
A long double-stranded RNA (dsRNA)-producing vector driven by fugu double U6 promotors, in which the two promoters were arranged in a head-to-head fashion, was newly constructed. To determine whether the DNA-vector-based long dsRNAs can induce sequence-specific RNA interference (RNAi), Epithelioma papulosum cyprini (EPC) cells and chinook salmon embryonic(More)
PURPOSE Male overactive bladder (OAB) may be caused by prostatic pathologies such as bladder outlet obstruction (BOO). Intravesical prostatic protrusion (IPP) has been found to correlate with BOO and acute urinary retention. We investigated the interrelation between male OAB symptoms and IPP for estimating anatomical changes to the prostate. MATERIALS AND(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES It is unclear which plaque component is related with long-term clinical outcomes in patients with coronary artery occlusive disease (CAOD). We assessed the relationship between plaque compositions and long-term clinical outcomes in those patients. SUBJECTS AND METHODS The study subjects consisted of 339 consecutive patients (mean(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES We evaluated which plaque components are associated with long-term clinical events in patients who underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). SUBJECTS AND METHODS The study subjects consisted of 57 consecutive patients (mean age, 58.5±14.5 years; 45 males) who underwent primary PCI and a virtual(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The relationship between the positive remodeling (PR) of a coronary artery and plaque composition has been studied only in a relatively small number of study population or non-culprit lesion. We evaluated the association between coronary plaque composition and coronary artery remodeling in a relatively large number of culprit(More)
Syringocystadenocarcinoma papilliferum (SCACP) is a rare form of adenocarcinoma of the skin. This is the malignant counterpart of syringocystadenoma papilliferum (SCAP) and usually develops on the scalp in a long-standing lesion identified clinically as SCAP. We describe a 65-yr-old Korean man with a nodule on the right supra-pubic area with a 2-yr(More)
