Graphitization of carbonaceous matter during metamorphism with references to carbonate and pelitic rocks of contact and regional metamorphisms, Japan
This study is an attempt to correlate the graphitization process of carbonaceous matter during metamorphism with metamorphic grade. Graphitization can be parameterized using crystal structure andExpand

Clinical and functional effects of mutations in the DAX-1 gene in patients with adrenal hypoplasia congenita.
Adrenal hypoplasia congenita (AHC) is an X-linked disorder caused by mutations in a gene referred to as DAX-1. AHC is characterized by adrenal insufficiency and failure to undergo puberty because ofExpand

Attenuation of postmenopausal high turnover bone loss in patients with hypoparathyroidism.
To elucidate the role of PTH in postmenopausal bone loss, we studied 33 postmenopausal patients who received total thyroidectomy due to thyroid carcinoma. Among these patients, 13 were patients withExpand

Low frequency of BRAFT1796A mutations in childhood thyroid carcinomas.
A high prevalence of the activating BRAF mutation, BRAF(T1796A), is observed in adult papillary thyroid carcinomas (PTCs). The prognosis of childhood PTCs is generally fairly good despite the factExpand

Missense mutations cluster within the carboxyl-terminal region of DAX-1 and impair transcriptional repression.
DAX-1 is an orphan nuclear receptor that plays a key role in the development and function of the adrenal gland and hypothalamic-pituitary gonadal axis. Mutations in the gene encoding DAX-1 result inExpand

Two novel mutations in the coding region for neurophysin-II associated with familial central diabetes insipidus.
Familial central diabetes insipidus is an autosomal dominant disease caused by a deficiency of arginine vasopressin (AVP). We previously reported three distinct mutations in the AVP gene in JapaneseExpand
