Kiwifruit was transformed with a soybean β-1,3-endoglucanase (EC 3.2.1.39) cDNA under the control of the cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV) 35S RNA promoter. The introduced gene was expressed in young leaves of the transformants. Assays of protein extracts from young leaves showed an increase in enzyme activity in many transformants, the transformant with the(More)
Neurofibrillary tangles, composed of hyperphosphorylated tau fibrils, are a pathological hallmark of Alzheimer's disease; the neurofibrillary tangle load correlates strongly with clinical progression of the disease. A growing body of evidence indicates that tau oligomer formation precedes the appearance of neurofibrillary tangles and contributes to neuronal(More)
INTRODUCTION This study was designed to evaluate the usefulness of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to assess the regeneration of pulp tissue. METHODS Mobilized dental pulp stem cells and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor with collagen were transplanted into mature pulpectomized teeth for pulp regeneration (n = 4). The controls consisted of(More)
Neurofibrillar tangles caused by intracellular hyperphosphorylated tau inclusion and extracellular amyloid β peptide deposition are hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease. Tau contains one or two cysteine residues in three or four repeats of the microtubule binding region following alternative splicing of exon 10, and formation of intermolecular cysteine(More)
