Post-menopausal women experience variable biological and psychological changes. The effect of reduced levels of estrogen can effect on post-menopausal depression. Estrogen triggers physiological responses by binding to the estrogen receptor (ER). Two subtypes of ER, ERa and ERb are now known. We investigated the significance of ERa and ERb polymorphisms and(More)
Estrogen-induced rapid, membrane-initiated activation of numerous signal transduction cascades has been shown in animal, cellular and molecular vascular studies, which support the favorable effects of estrogen on vascular structure and function. These effects are mediated by distinct forms of estrogen receptor (ER) alpha. This includes estrogen-stimulated,(More)
Human gamma-band activity (GBA) is widely reported to reflect memory processing. Recent studies suggest that GBA is associated with behavioral performance in memory tasks, but it is not clear whether gamma oscillations are related to individual differences in memory ability. To examine this issue, we recruited participants with low memory ability (mild(More)

Regulation of osteoclast differentiation is key to understanding the pathogenesis and to developing treatments for bone diseases such as osteoporosis. To gain insight into the mechanism of the receptor activator of nuclear factor (NF)-kappaB ligand (RANKL)-specific induction of the osteoclast differentiation program, we took a suppression-subtractive(More)
Gender differences in various clinical features of schizophrenia have been noted and estrogen has been regarded to play important roles. A few previous studies on the association between estrogen receptor (ER) genotypes and schizophrenia focused mainly on ER α gene but failed to report consistent results. The present study was designed to analyze the(More)
Korean ginseng (Panax ginseng) and American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) are widely used medicinal plants with similar morphology but different medicinal efficacy. Roots, flowers, and processed products of Korean and American ginseng can be difficult to differentiate from each other, leading to illegal trade in which one species is sold as the other. This(More)
OBJECTIVE We developed and pilot-tested a personalized text messaging service program based on data from electronic health records (EHRs) and lifestyle questionnaires for weight control. METHODS In the health promotion center of a hospital, 340 participants with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 25 were recruited and surveyed for the development of a(More)
