In this paper, we propose a new data management method for handling relations on genealogy display software easily. It is named " Widespread Hands to InTErconnect BASic Elements (WHIteBasE) ". The WHIteBasE is a hidden node for integrating the relations due to an event including a married couple and their children. That is, individual's data does not refer(More)
There is evidence suggesting that the GABA system in the arcuate nucleus, where orexigenic neuropeptide Y and agouti-related peptide as well as anorexigenic proopiomelanocortin (POMC) are expressed, plays an important role in energy balance. In this study, we generated POMC-specific GABAB receptor-deficient [knock-out (KO)] mice. Male KO mice on a high-fat(More)
Mitogen-activated protein kinase phosphatase 1 (MKP-1) is shown to negatively regulate MAPK signaling in various peripheral tissues as well as the central nervous system such as cortex, striatum and hippocampus. In this study, we examined whether MKP-1 regulates MAPK signaling in the mouse hypothalamus. Intraperitoneal injection of TNFα significantly(More)
In this research, needs of displaying genealogy with various layouts are described and those solutions using our " WHIteBasE " method are proposed. Previous WHIteBasE method can perfectly integrate each relation that includes a married couple and their children, and can display complex relations with segment intersections easily. However, it has had no(More)
