MOTIVATION Transcription start site selection and alternative splicing greatly contribute to diversifying gene expression. Recent studies have revealed the existence of alternative first exons, but most have involved mammalian genes, and as yet the regulation of usage of alternative first exons has not been clarified, especially in plants. RESULTS We(More)
Novel approach to empirical retrosynthetic analysis of computer-assisted synthesis design is proposed using the KOSP (Knowledge base-Oriented system for Synthesis Planning) system. KOSP has four functions: (1) strategic site pattern perception, (2) precursor skeleton generation, (3) retrosyn-thetic scheme evaluation, and (4) retrosynthetic analysis(More)
This study compares velar ascent and morphological factors affecting velopharyngeal function between patients with repaired cleft palate and noncleft controls from early childhood to puberty. Lateral cephalograms obtained at rest and during blowing from 61 patients with repaired unilateral cleft lip and palate (cleft group) and 82 noncleft controls (control(More)
INTRODUCTION Sclerosing mucoepidermoid carcinoma with eosinophilia is a rare morphological variant of thyroid carcinoma associated with Hashimoto's disease. To date, only three such tumors have been reported in the minor salivary glands. We describe the first case, to the best of our knowledge, of recurrent sclerosing mucoepidermoid carcinoma with(More)
