In human in-vitro fertilization (IVF)-embryo transfer, the in-vitro culture environment differs from in-vivo conditions in that the oxygen concentration is higher, and in such conditions the mouse embryos show a higher concentration of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in simple culture media. ROS are believed to cause damage to cell membranes and DNA… (More)
Endometrial decidualization results from the differentiation of stromal cells in an ovarian steroid-sensitive manner. Human endometrial tissues obtained from fertile women at various stages of the menstrual cycle were subjected to immunohistochemistry to localize the components of the transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) system. TGF-beta receptor-I… (More)
An efficient procedure for the preparation of 7,8-dichloro-6-nitro-1H-1,5-benzodiazepine-2,4-(3H, 5H)-dione(7) as a potential lead compound for the NMDA receptor glycine binding site antagonist, starting from readily available 4,5-dichloro-2-nitroaniline(8), is described. The key step in the synthesis involves the cyclization of malonic ester amide 10 to… (More)
PURPOSE This study examined Korean clinical nurses' intentions to care for SARS patients and identify determinants of the intentions. Theory of planned behavior was the framework to explain the intentions of Korean nurses for SARS patients care. METHODS A convenient sample of six hundreds and seventy nine clinical nurses from four university-affiliated… (More)
A synthetic procedure for the preparation of indole-2,3-dione derivatives 6 as a potential NMDA receptor glycine site antagonist with improved pharmacological profile compared with 2-carboxyindole derivative 5, starting from readily available 3,5-dichloroaniline (7), is described.
