A prenylated coumarin, osthenol (1) and a sesquiterpene, bisabolangelone (2) have been isolated as active principles with 5alpha-reductase type I inhibitory effects in LNCaP cells from the roots of Angelica koreana Max. by bioassay-guided chromatographic fractionation. Osthenol exhibited a highly potent inhibitory activity on 5alpha-reductase type I in(More)
A 65-year-old male presented with pain in his right medial calf. An imaging study revealed no acute lesions, and a diagnosis of saphenous neuralgia was made by a nerve conduction study. He received temporary pain relief with saphenous nerve blocks twice in a one-week interval. Pulsed radiofrequency neuromodulation reduced pain to 10% of the maximal pain(More)
KOSMOS is the first online morph server to be able to address the structural dynamics of DNA/RNA, proteins and even their complexes, such as ribosomes. The key functions of KOSMOS are the harmonic and anharmonic analyses of macromolecules. In the harmonic analysis, normal mode analysis (NMA) based on an elastic network model (ENM) is performed, yielding(More)
Graphene films grown on metal substrates by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method have to be safely transferred onto desired substrates for further applications. Recently, a roll-to-roll (R2R) method has been developed for large-area transfer, which is particularly efficient for flexible target substrates. However, in the case of rigid substrates such as(More)
Recently, the atomic structures of both the closed and open forms of Group 2 chaperonin protein Mm-cpn were revealed through crystallography and cryo-electron microscopy. This toroidal-like chaperonin is composed of two eightfold rings that face back-to-back. To gain a computational advantage, we used a symmetry constrained elastic network model (SCENM),(More)
An elastic network model (ENM), usually Cα coarse-grained one, has been widely used to study protein dynamics as an alternative to classical molecular dynamics simulation. This simple approach dramatically saves the computational cost, but sometimes fails to describe a feasible conformational change due to unrealistically excessive spring connections. To(More)
OBJECTIVE There are many causes of cervical myelopathy including trauma, degenerative conditions, tumors and demyelinating disorders. However, myelopathy caused by soft disc herniation might be seen rarely than the spondylosis caused by hard disc. Here, authors retrospectively analyzed the clinical features and results of cervical myelopathy caused by soft(More)
Percutaneous epidural neuroplasty (PEN) is a known interventional technique for the management of spinal pain. As with any procedures, PEN is associated with complications ranging from mild to more serious ones. We present a case of intracranial subdural hematoma after PEN requiring surgical evacuation. We review the relevant literature and discuss possible(More)
As a cause of spinal cord compression, intramedullary spinal tuberculoma with central nervous system (CNS) involvement is rare. Aurthors report a 66-year-old female presented with multiple CNS tuberculomas including spinal intramedullary tuberculoma manifesting paraparesis and urinary dysfunction. We review the clinical menifestation and experiences of(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The effective and reproducible diagnostic parameters for differentiating benign from malignant gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are still not clear. In this study, GISTs were diagnosed and classified by immunohistochemistry and their clinical and pathologic features were investigated. GISTs were re-evaluated by Amin's and NIH's(More)
