The complete genome sequence of a new virus isolated from a motherwort plant exhibiting yellow mottle, mild mosaic, and stunting symptoms in Andong, Korea, was determined. The genome of this virus is composed of two single-stranded RNAs (7068 and 4963 nucleotides in length, respectively) carrying poly(A) tails. RNA1 contains one large open reading frame(More)
This study described the clinical and molecular genetic features of classical galactosemia in Korean population to contribute to the insight in the spectrum of galactosemia in the world, as little is known about the spectrum and incidence of galactosemia in Asia. During the 11-year study period, only three Korean children were identified as having classical(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to evaluate tooth discoloration after the use of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) and to examine the effect of internal bleaching on discoloration associated with MTA. METHODS Thirty-two teeth were endodontically treated. Three-millimeter plugs of MTA, ProRoot, Angelus, or Endocem were placed on the access cavities(More)
CONTEXT Mutations in the IGF1R gene result in intrauterine growth retardation and postnatal growth failure. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to describe the clinical features of subjects with a mutation in the IGF1R gene and to evaluate the molecular and functional characteristics of a novel IGF1R mutation. SUBJECTS Three children with(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of the present study was to evaluate and compare the short-term clinical outcomes of direct pulp capping using ProRoot MTA (Dentsply, Tulsa, OK) or Endocem (Maruchi, Wonju, Korea) as capping materials in a prospective randomized controlled study. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was conducted with subjects who were recruited from(More)
The Long-Evans Cinnamon (LEC) rat shows age-dependent hepatic manifestations that are similar to those of Wilson's disease (WD). The pathogenic process in the brain has, however, not been evaluated in detail due to the rarity of the neurological symptoms. However, copper accumulation is noted in LEC rat brain tissue from 24 weeks of age, which results in(More)
The accumulation of viral RNA depends on many host cellular factors. The hexagonal peroxisome (Hex1) protein is a fungal protein that is highly expressed when the DK21 strain of Fusarium graminearum virus 1 (FgV1) infects its host, and Hex1 affects the accumulation of FgV1 RNA. The Hex1 protein is the major constituent of the Woronin body (WB), which is a(More)
OBJECTIVE 17α-hydroxylase/17,20-lyase deficiency is a rare form of congenital adrenal hyperplasia, characterized by hypertension and sexual infantilism and caused by loss-of-function mutations in CYP17A1. This study investigated the clinical and molecular characteristics of six adults with 17α-hydroxylase/17,20-lyase deficiency and the functional(More)
A remarkable enhancement of p-channel properties is achieved in initially n-channel dominant ambipolar P(NDI2OD-T2) organic field-effect transistors (OFETs) by the use of the fluorinated high-k dielectric P(VDF-TrFE). An almost two orders of magnitude increase in hole mobility (~0.11 cm(2) V(-1) s(-1) ) originates from a strong interface modification at the(More)
Translation initiation is known to be regulated by the binding of eukaryotic initiation factor 4E (eIF4E) by binding proteins (4EBPs), and there is evidence that amino acid deprivation and other cellular stresses upregulate 4EBP1 expression. To pursue the question of whether diets limited in an essential amino acid lead to induction of 4EBP1 expression in(More)
