We extracted polyphenols from carob (Ceratonia siliqua L.) pods, and evaluated the in vitro antioxidant activity of the crude polyphenol fraction (CPP). The total polyphenol content in CPP determined by the Folin-Ciocalteu method was 19.2%. The condensed tannin content determined by the vanillin and proanthocyanidin assay systems was 4.37% and 1.36%,(More)
We investigated the accumulation of p53 proteins after heat stress and their association with HSP72/HSC73 using four human glioblastoma cell lines. Human glioblastoma cell lines U-87MG and A-172 exhibited no mutation in the region between the 2nd and 11th exons of the p53 gene, whereas A-7 and T98G had mutations in exon 5 and exon 7 of the p53 gene,(More)
This study evaluated patients who were reconstructed with the IMZ system, which consists of a cylindrical implant with an intramobile element for stress relief. It is placed through a two-stage surgical procedure resulting in osteointegration. During a 5-year period, 1,059 implants were placed in 322 patients. Twenty-one implants were lost to follow-up. A(More)
The cellular content of mutant p53 and hsp72 proteins following gamma-ray irradiation, UV irradiation, and heat treatment was studied in A-7 cells, a human glioblastoma cell line. A-7 was found to contain a mutant p53 gene in which the arginine codon at position 175 was substituted by a histidine codon. Although the p53 gene was mutant, the phenotype of the(More)
New objectives of the development of biomaterials in recent years include how to control surface characteristics of materials and the attachment of cells to implant sites. This study clarified the effect of "wettability" of materials on culture cells, with wettability being expressed by the contact angle of the material to the water. First, low-temperature(More)
A new analysis technique that provides a shape pattern of the maxilla or mandible is described. This technique uses a software program of computed tomography multiplanar reformation (CT/MPR). The successive cross-sectional images obtained by the CT/MPR are numbered, and the height and width of the maxilla and mandible at each of these cross-sectional images(More)
