Herein, we report the variability among 57 porcine homologs of murine coat colour-related genes. We identified single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and insertions/deletions (InDels) within 44 expressed gene sequences by aligning eight pig complementary DNA (cDNA) samples. The sequence alignment revealed a total of 485 SNPs and 15 InDels. The polymorphisms(More)
Three-dimensional reconstructive analyses revealed that the intracytoplasmic lumina found in ependymomas were actually formed by subsidence of an extracellular membrane, resembling a volcano. This finding was compatible with cytologic and electron microscopic findings. In addition, there were many tiny thorns resembling a holly leaf on the extracellular(More)
Human thrombomodulin (TM) was for the first time immobilized on glass beads by the reaction between the carboxyl group of TM and the amino group of glass beads using water-soluble carbodiimide. Immobilized human TM exhibited both anticoagulant activity and inhibition of platelet aggregation of human blood.
UNLABELLED The etiology of Charcot-Bouchard microaneurysms (MAs), especially before rupture, has been unclear. CASE REPORT A surgical specimen of an MA was removed from an acute intracerebral hemorrhage in a 69-year-old man. The MA was fixed with formalin and embedded in paraffin, and serial sections were cut and stained by the Azan and Elastica van(More)
BACKGROUND Oligodendrogliomas, which have a relatively better prognosis than tumors of the astrocytic lineage, have few morphologic clues for diagnosis. CASE To address this problem, eosinophilic refractile inclusions were examined cytologically in the tumor of a 59-year-old man, using surgical materials for rapid diagnosis. Cytologic, histologic, and(More)
Thrombomodulin (TM) is a newly described endothelial cell-associated protein that functions as a potent natural anticoagulant by converting thrombin from a procoagulant protease to an anticoagulant. In this study, focussing on the application of TM for biomedical materials, recombinant human TM (hTM) was immobilized onto the polymers for medical use, and(More)
