Identification of a MAD2‐binding protein, CMT2, and its role in mitosis
MAD2 is a key component of the spindle checkpoint that delays the onset of anaphase until all the kinetochores are attached to the spindle. It binds to human p55CDC and prevents it from promotingExpand

Avoiding DEET through Insect Gustatory Receptors
DEET is the most widely used insect repellent worldwide. In Drosophila olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs), DEET is detected through a mechanism employing the olfactory receptor, OR83b. However, it isExpand

Spatial Representations of Granule Cells and Mossy Cells of the Dentate Gyrus
Granule cells in the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus are thought to be essential to memory function by decorrelating overlapping input patterns (pattern separation). A second excitatory cell type inExpand

Drosophila TRPA1 channel mediates chemical avoidance in gustatory receptor neurons
Mammalian sweet, bitter, and umami taste is mediated by a single transduction pathway that includes a phospholipase C (PLC)β and one cation channel, TRPM5. However, in insects such as the fruit fly,Expand

Drosophila TRPA1 Channel Is Required to Avoid the Naturally Occurring Insect Repellent Citronellal
Plants produce insect repellents, such as citronellal, which is the main component of citronellal oil. However, the molecular pathways through which insects sense botanical repellents are unknown.Expand

Transcriptional activation of Cidec by PPARgamma2 in adipocyte.
Cidec is a lipid droplet-associated protein, which inhibits lipolysis, leading to the accumulation of triglycerides in adipocytes. However, the transcriptional regulation of Cidec in adipocyteExpand

The improvement of ginsenoside accumulation in Panax ginseng as a result of γ-irradiation
In this study, gamma rays were used to irradiate embryogenic calli induced from cotyledon explants of Panax ginseng Meyer. After the embryogenic calli were irradiated, they were transferred toExpand

Three AFLP markers tightly linked to the genic male sterility ms3 gene in chili pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) and conversion to a CAPS marker
Genic male sterility (GMS) has long been used as a tool for hybrid seed production in chili pepper (Capsicum annuum L.). We developed DNA markers linked to the GMS ms3 gene in a segregatingExpand

Relationship between obesity and hearing loss
Abstract Conclusion: Underweight and severe obesity were associated with an increased prevalence of hearing loss in a Korean population. Objective: The relationship between weight and hearing loss isExpand
