BACKGROUND Skin acts as the first line of defense against any foreign materials outside of our body. In inflammatory skin disease, the pathogenesis is due to an immune reaction in the keratinocytes, immune cells and soluble mediators. Balneotherapy is widely used for the treatment of inflammatory skin disease, but the mechanisms are only partly understood(More)
This study developed a method to boost the expression of recombinant proteins in a cell-free protein synthesis system without leaving additional amino acid residues. It was found that the nucleotide sequences of the signal peptides serve as an efficient downstream box to stimulate protein synthesis when they were fused upstream of the target genes. The(More)
The use of magnetic bead-immobilized DNA as movable template for cell-free protein synthesis has been investigated. Magnetic microbeads containing chemically conjugated plasmids were used to direct cell-free protein synthesis, so that protein generation could be readily programmed, reset and reprogrammed. Protein synthesis by using this approach could be(More)
RNase H is an endonuclease that catalyzes the cleavage of RNA. Because it only acts on RNA in RNA:DNA hybrids, RNase H can be used for targeted degradation of RNA when used in combination with antisense oligodeoxyribonucleotides (ASODNs) designed against a specific sequence of the target RNA. In this study, ASODN and RNase H were co-conjugated on magnetic(More)
INTRODUCTION Thromboangiitis obliterans or Buerger's disease is a nonatherosclerotic, segmental, inflammatory vasculitis that is strongly associated with tobacco products and commonly affects the small- and medium-sized arteries of the upper and lower extremities. However, the disease can, rarely, involve large central or visceral arteries. We report here(More)
In the trends of high density, high speed and low power consumption, the analysis of power distribution networks is rapidly becoming an essential step in the design of high performance ICs. Nevertheless, the analysis is a great challenge, due to the large size of the networks. In this paper, we propose a variable reduction technique for the analysis of(More)
