Humans recognize body parts in categories. Previous studies have shown that responses in the fusiform body area (FBA) and extrastriate body area (EBA) are evoked by the perception of the human body, when presented either as whole or as isolated parts. These responses occur approximately 190 ms after body images are visualized. The extent to which(More)
BACKGROUND Activation of the coagulation system is a critical response for both the repair of tissue injury and the host defense against microbial pathogens. Activation of the coagulation cascade culminates with the generation of thrombin. In vitro studies have shown that thrombin protects gastric epithelial cells from injury. The present study was(More)
RSC (Remodel the Structure of Chromatin) is an ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complex essential for the growth of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. RSC exists as two distinct isoforms that share core subunits including the ATPase subunit Nps1/Sth1 but contain either Rsc1or Rsc2. Using the synthetic genetic array (SGA) of the non-essential null mutation method,(More)
A 57-year-old man with a history of tuberculosis (TB) was found to have a pancreatic head mass, accompanied by stenosis of the common bile duct. Due to the inherent difficulty in differentiating pancreatic carcinoma from an inflammatory mass, endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy (EUS-FNAB) was thus performed. The pathological findings(More)
General H NMR and C NMR spectra were recorded with a JEOL JNM-Alice 400 spectrometer (400 MHz and 100 MHz, respectively). Chemical shifts are given in parts per million (δ) downfield from internal tetramethylsilane. Infrared spectra were obtained with a Perkin-Elmer FT-IR (Model 1600). Both conventional and high resolution mass spectra were recorded with a(More)
We encountered a rare case in which a 14 mm ampullary tumor had both components of neuroendocrine carcinoma and adenocarcinoma, which caused acute pancreatitis. A Sixty-one-year-old woman was referred to our hospital for evaluation and treatment of pancreatitis due to an unknown cause. After various imaging examinations, the cause of pancreatitis was found(More)
A 48-year-old woman presented to our hospital with a 1-year history of a continuous high fever. She was diagnosed with metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma accompanied by leukocytosis without infection. Her serum concentration of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor was highly elevated. Forty-five days after initiating chemotherapy, she was readmitted(More)
