Two Arabidopsis thaliana extragenic mutations that suppress NaCl hypersensitivity of the sos3-1 mutant were identified in a screen of a T-DNA insertion population in the genetic background of Col-0 gl1 sos3-1. Analysis of the genome sequence in the region flanking the T-DNA left border indicated that sos3-1 hkt1-1 and sos3-1 hkt1-2 plants have allelic(More)
BACKGROUND Brain metastases (BM) are a common in patients with lung cancer. Although whole-brain radiation therapy (WBRT) is the standard therapy, it may have a risk of decline in cognitive function of patients. In this study, we evaluated the efficacy of gefitinib alone without radiation therapy for the treatment of patients with BM from lung(More)

The efficacy of antimicrobial regimens for the treatment of uncomplicated gonococcal urethritis depends partially upon the period of time (therapeutic time) during which the drug concentration in the blood after the concentration peak is greater than four times the minimum inhibitory concentration for 90% of clinical isolates of Neisseria gonorrhoeae(More)
Of 150 clinical isolates of Neisseria gonorrhoeae recovered in 2001, we examined 55 clinical isolates of N. gonorrhoeae for which cefixime MICs were > or=0.125 microg/ml and randomly selected 15 isolates for which cefixime MICs were < or =0.06 microg/ml for analysis of alterations in the penicillin-binding protein 2 (PBP 2) gene. We found insertion of an(More)
Emerging Infectious Diseases • • Vol. 13, No. 8, August 2007 1275 increase SLE incidence in Louisiana, and if it did increase incidence in Mississippi, the increase was minimal. In both 2003 and 2004, Louisiana’s median reporting time to ArboNET was ≈30 days. In 2005, the median reporting time prehurricane was 36 days and posthurricane was(More)
A rare case of Frantz's tumor with liver metastasis is reported. An 11-year-old girl had local resection of a Frantz's tumor in the head of the pancreas. Ten years later, she had a recurrence in the pancreatic head, and two liver metastases were also disclosed at reoperation. Pancreaticoduodenectomy and enucleation of metastatic lesions in the liver were(More)
AIMS Recent studies have shown that fused-in-sarcoma (FUS) protein is a component of 'neuronal' intranuclear inclusion bodies (INIBs) in the brains of patients with intranuclear inclusion body disease (INIBD). However, the extent and frequency of FUS-immunoreactive structures in INIBD are uncertain. METHODS We immunohistochemically examined the brain,(More)
This morphometric and morphological study demonstrates 3 categories (types A, B and C) of degenerative feature in the cerebellar dentate nucleus. Type A is characterized by neuronal loss, astrocytosis and granular and/or amorphous argyrophilic change around the neurons and neuronal processes, and this type was thought to be synonymous with the so-called(More)
We report the case of a 68-year-old Japanese man who presented with postrenal azotemia due to bilateral upper ureteral stenosis. The patient's right kidney was nonfunctional; therefore, right nephroureterectomy was performed for the purpose of pathologic diagnosis. Histopathologic examination revealed follicular lymphoma with diffuse change in the ureter.(More)
