Serotonergic genes have been implicated in mood disorders, alcoholism and certain personality traits. The goal of this study was to investigate the relationship between personality traits and several important genes in the serotonin system. The participants included 146 healthy adults with no history of psychiatric disorders or other physical illness during(More)
A satellite communication is suitable for broadcasting service and long-hual transmission based on telecommunications. In the satellite communication environment, unauthorized user should not have to obtain his/her required services from the satellite communication systems without authentication. Therefore, authentication is an important security technique(More)
Culinary use of the pungent spices has potential health benefits including a reduction in food intake. Pungent spices often contain ingredients that activate members of the transient receptor potential (TRP) family A1 and evoke pain from capsaicin-sensitive somatosensory neurons. TRPA1 channel have also been identified on cranial visceral afferent neurons(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate variations in IncF plasmids and the genetic environments of bla(CTX-M-15) in CTX-M-15-producing Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates from South Korea. METHODS A total of 56 E. coli and 15 K. pneumoniae isolates, which were previously characterized for CTX-M-15 production, sequence type(More)
This paper proposes a new efficient and secure anonymous authentication scheme for mobile satellite communication systems. Compared with the related schemes, the proposed scheme achieves the following three main advantages: (1) It is just based on a secure one-way hash function for avoiding complex computations for both mobile users and network control(More)
The tetracycline resistance gene tet39 is present in both Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria from a polluted river, Southwestern Nigeria. 9 Akers KS, Mende K, Yun HC et al. Tetracycline susceptibility testing and resistance genes in isolates of Acinetobacter baumannii-Acinetobacter calcoaceticus complex from a U.S. military hospital. 10 Agerso Y,(More)
An eco-friendly approach is described for the green synthesis of gold nanoparticles using catechin as a reducing and capping agent. The reaction occurred at room temperature within 1 h without the use of any external energy and an excellent yield (99%) was obtained, as determined by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. Various shapes of gold(More)
Propofol, an intravenous anesthetic, is broadly used for general anesthesia and diagnostic sedations due to its fast onset and recovery. Propofol depresses respiratory and cardiovascular reflex responses, however, their underlying mechanisms are not well known. Cardiorespiratory information from visceral afferent vagus nerves is integrated in the nucleus(More)
Rhabdomyolysis is a syndrome involving the breakdown of skeletal muscle that causes myoglobin and other intracellular proteins to leak into the circulatory system, resulting in organ injury including acute kidney injury. We report a case of statin-induced rhabdomyolysis and acute kidney injury that developed in a 63-year-old woman with previously(More)
