BACKGROUND The members of the microtubule-associated protein 1 light chain (MAP1LC) family, especially those of the LC3 family (MAP1LC3A, B, C), are known to induce autophagy upon localization onto the autophagosomal membrane. In this regard, LC3 can be utilized as a marker for the formation of autophagosomes during the process of autophagy. The aims of(More)
INTRODUCTION Our target device, AIR-Remote, is a rod-shape device with 3gyroscopes and 3 accelerometers so that it can realize the size, shape, speed, and acceleration of a user hand movements in three dimensional space. Like other multimodal approaches have been done, ours also focused on natural and intuitive interaction design, as well as fun-to-use(More)
Follicles are important in oocyte maturation. Successful estrous cycle requires remodeling of follicular cells, and proper execution of programmed cell death is crucial for normal follicular development. The objectives of the present study were to understand programmed cell death during follicle development, to analyze the differential follicle development(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of the current study was to investigate the association between cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF), measured by a simple step test, and the prevalence of metabolic syndrome among Korean adults, in a cross sectional design. METHODS A total of 1,007 Korean adults (488 men and 519 women) who underwent routine health checkups were(More)
To determine the differences in the follicular development process of normal and miniature pigs, we compared the expression of matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) in these two breeds throughout folliculogenesis. In normal pigs, MMP-9 was highly expressed in all stages of the follicular development as well as during ovulation. The follicular development(More)
The coat color of mammals is determined by the melanogenesis pathway, which is responsible for maintaining the balance between black-brown eumelanin and yellow-reddish pheomelanin. It is also believed that the color of the bovine muzzle is regulated in a similar manner; however, the molecular mechanism underlying pigment deposition in the dark-muzzle has(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the expression of bovine luteum expressed sequence tags (ESTs), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), and tumor necrosis factor receptor 1 (TNFR1) and the presence of functional ESTs in the bovine corpus luteum (CL) during different stages of the estrus cycle. Reverse transcription-polymerase chain(More)
