Kawasaki disease (KD) is a multi-systemic vasculitis which preferentially affects infants and children. A single nucleotide polymorphism (rs28493229) in the inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate 3-kinase C (ITPKC) was identified to be associated with the increased risk of KD; however, in more recent studies associations have been controversial. Thus, we performed a(More)
BACKGROUND The new method described here is highly efficient in transferring microinjected mouse eggs (MEs) through the bursa membrane of a surrogate mother mouse to the ampulla of the oviduct without damaging the blood vessels on the bursa membrane. RESULTS This method causes no loss of blood, and it produces newborn pups/founders from approximately 70%(More)
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is one of neurodevelopmental disorders with highly heritability. Recently, abnormality at the synapse is found to be important etiology of ASD. SHANK3 gene is suggested as a strong candidate gene for the pathogenesis of ASD, because it is essential for normally synaptic structure and function. We performed a case–control study(More)
The neonatal burst suppression is a severe EEG pattern and always demonstrates serious damage of nerve system. But the outcome of these patients depends on the different etiology. A total of 256 cases of video EEG recordings were analyzed in order to summarize the etiology and outcome of burst suppression. The results showed that some patients in all 17(More)
