MicroRNAs contribute to the pathogenesis of certain diseases and may serve as biomarkers. We analyzed glomerular microRNA expression in B6.MRLc1, which serve as a mouse model of autoimmune glomerulonephritis. We found that miR-26a was the most abundantly expressed microRNA in the glomerulus of normal C57BL/6 and that its glomerular expression in B6.MRLc1(More)

The imaging findings of IgG4-related kidney diseases are usually expressed as defect contrast region, while cystic formation in kidney is extremely rare. Here, we report a case of IgG4-related(More)
To improve drought resistance of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.), we bred four varieties with large root mass and registered them as Konyu-1 to Konyu-4 in 2007. In the present study, two experiments were conducted to clarify the effect of improved root system on plant hydraulic conductance (Kplant) and drought resistance under field conditions. In the first(More)
BACKGROUND We report a case of a 33-year-old man who presented with immunoglobulin (Ig)G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) forming a pseudotumor in the left paratesticular region during oral administration of corticosteroid for Wells syndrome, which involves cellulitis with eosinophilia.
