The basal ganglia represents a key component of the pathophysiological model for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). This brain region is part of several neural circuits, including the orbitofronto-striatal circuit and dorsolateral prefronto-striatal circuit. There are, however, no published studies investigating those circuits at a network level in(More)
In order to examine the mechanism of the anabolic effect of parathyroid hormone (PTH) on bone formation, human PTH(1-34) [hPTH(1-34)] (30 micrograms/kg) was injected subcutaneously to 9-week-old rats 5 times a week for 1 or 3 weeks. Trabecular bone volume (BV/TV) in the tibial metaphysis was not significantly different between the PTH- and vehicle-treated(More)
The Wilms' tumor gene WT1 is overexpressed in most of human leukemias regardless of disease subtypes. To characterize the expression pattern of WT1 during normal and neoplastic hematopoiesis, we generated a knock-in reporter green fluorescent protein (GFP) mouse (WT1(GFP/+)) and assayed for WT1 expression in normal and leukemic hematopoietic cells. In(More)
We present the first evidence of the decay B- --> tau- nu(tau), using 414 fb(-1) of data collected at the Upsilon(4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e+ e- collider. Events are tagged by fully reconstructing one of the B mesons in hadronic modes. We detect the signal with a significance of 3.5 standard deviations including(More)
UNLABELLED We showed that IGF-I deficiency impaired osteoclastogenesis directly and/or indirectly by altering the interaction between stromal/osteoblastic cells and osteoclast precursors, reducing RANKL and M-CSF production. These changes lead to impaired bone resorption, resulting in high BV/TV in IGF-I null mice. INTRODUCTION Although IGF-I has been(More)
Trabecular bone turnover and bone marrow capacity for the development of bone cells in the tibia were assessed after sciatic neurectomy (NX) in mice. The right hindlimbs of 6-week-old DDY mice were neurectomized and left hindlimbs were sham-operated and served as NX controls. Histomorphometrical analyses of the trabecular bone of the proximal tibia(More)
To clarify the relationship between the sequential changes of trabecular bone turnover and bone marrow cell development in ovariectomized (ovx) mice, bilateral tibiae of 8-week-old ddy mice were obtained. Histomorphometric analyses of the trabecular bone of the proximal tibia of ovx mice revealed increases in the bone formation rate and the osteoclast(More)
A total of 11,815 weight records from 23,94 Japanese Black calves was used to estimate direct, maternal, direct permanent environmental, and maternal permanent environmental effects on growth from birth to 356 d of age. The data were collected from a herd of Japanese Black cattle in Shiroshi city, Miyagi prefecture, Japan. A random regression model,(More)
We present a measurement of angular observables and a test of lepton flavor universality in the B→K^{*}ℓ^{+}ℓ^{-} decay, where ℓ is either e or μ. The analysis is performed on a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 711  fb^{-1} containing 772×10^{6} BB[over ¯] pairs, collected at the ϒ(4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the(More)
Two hundred forty-five patients with variant angina were followed for an average of 80.5 months (range, 36-184 months). Survival rate at 1, 3, 5, and 10 years was 98%, 97%, 97%, and 93%, respectively. Survival rate without myocardial infarction at 1, 3, 5, and 10 years was 86%, 85%, 83%, and 81%, respectively. By univarite analysis, ST segment elevation in(More)
