Fine mapping and DNA fiber FISH analysis locates the tobamovirus resistance gene L 3 of Capsicum chinense in a 400-kb region of R-like genes cluster embedded in highly repetitive sequences Abstract The tobamovirus resistance gene L 3 of Capsi-cum chinense was mapped using an intra-specific F2 population (2,016 individuals) of Capsicum annuum culti-vars,(More)
Although a causal relationship between inflammation and innate immunity of cancer is more widely accepted today, many of the precise cell mechanisms mediating this relationship have not been elucidated. Th17 cells, which produce the proinflammatory cytokine interleukin 17 (IL‑17), have been recognized as one of the key factors in the regulation of(More)
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) reportedly has an important role in the progression of malignant neoplasms and has been reported to induce myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) that appear in cancer and inflammation. In the present study, serum concentrations of VEGF were measured in patients with digestive system cancer and the correlations(More)
PURPOSE Previously, we established a pre-operative risk scoring system to predict contralateral inguinal hernia in children with unilateral inguinal hernias. The current study aimed to verify the usefulness of our pre-operative scoring system. METHODS This was a prospective study of patients undergoing unilateral inguinal hernia repair from 2006 to 2009(More)

The unique properties of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) such as a 1D structure and dependence of chiral indices make them a promising candidate for molecular electronics. However, the device characteristics of CNT transistors and photodetectors are largely determined by their electronic coupling to the various metal electrodes. Therefore, understanding and(More)
The tobamovirus resistance gene L(3) of Capsicum chinense was mapped using an intra-specific F2 population (2,016 individuals) of Capsicum annuum cultivars, into one of which had been introduced the C. chinense L(3) gene, and an inter-specific F2 population (3,391 individuals) between C. chinense and Capsicum frutescence. Analysis of a BAC library with an(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The structure of the pyloric sphincter (PS) muscle has recently been shown to divide into two parts (proximal and distal parts). To clarify the functional differences in the human PS between proximal and distal parts, we investigated the enteric nerve responses in normal proximal and distal PS specimens. METHODOLOGY Normal PS specimens(More)
