The bacterial and archaeal communities in rice field soils subjected to different fertilization regimes for 57 years were investigated in two different seasons, a non-planted, drained season (April) and a rice-growing, flooded season (August), by performing soil dehydrogenase assay, real-time PCR assay and pyrosequencing analysis. All fertilization regimes(More)
The mechanotransduction mechanisms play an important role in regulation of specific cellular response or maintenance of cellular homeostasis in a wide variety of cell types. Increase in intracellular free Ca(2+) concentration ([Ca(2+)](i)) is an important signal in the first step of mechanotransduction. Mechanosensitive (MS) cation channels are thought to(More)
BACKGROUND In 2009, there was an influenza pandemic in South Korea. The aim of this study was to evaluate the epidemiological, clinical and laboratory characteristics of this infection in children and adults. METHODS We evaluated the epidemiologic characteristics of patients infected with the 2009 H1N1 influenza A virus (4,463 patients, age range from 2(More)
Fertilization and the response of the soil microbial community to the process significantly affect crop yield and the environment. In this study, the seasonal variation in the bacterial communities in rice field soil subjected to different fertilization treatments for more than 50 years was investigated using 16S rRNA sequencing. The simultaneous(More)
This thesis investigates how KoShik, otherwise known as the talking elephant, can have a human-like voice articulation. The mechanism of articulating a human sound by an elephant can be described as a unique excitation process in which the elephant first places its nose in its mouth, blows air into the mouth, produces the basic frequency by pressing the(More)

Sound sources used for broadcasting on the air are usually produced and delivered in different levels of sound volume, thus inevitably creating the loudness/imbalance problem among various sound sources. This study examines the loudness of TV news anchorwomen’s voice and the sound of commercial advertisements on the Internet using Absolute Sound Level, to(More)
