A two-component Langmuir monolayer consisting of (perfluorobutyl)undecanol (F4H11OH) and dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC), a major component of pulmonary surfactants in mammals, has been investigated at the air-water interface. The binary monolayer has been systematically examined from both thermodynamic and morphological perspectives. The excess Gibbs(More)
Mouse C3b/C4b inactivator (C3b/C4bINA) was purified approximately 400 times from mouse serum. It is a beta-globulin and consists of 2 disulfide bonded chains of m.w. 60,000 and 35,000. Under nonreducing conditions, its m.w. is 95,000. It cleaves the alpha'-chain of cell-bound C4b into 3 fragments: alpha 2, alpha 3, alpha 4. The alpha 2 fragments remain(More)
OBJECTIVE This study investigated the incidence of readmission among discharged psychiatric patients and examined factors predicting early readmission. METHODS A cohort of 343 patients, who had been hospitalized involuntarily to mental hospitals for medical care and custody, and who were discharged between April 1991 and September 1993, in two areas(More)
Affinity sites of glucocorticoid (GC) in nasal tissue were investigated using radiolabelled synthetic GC. The affinity sites of GC are epithelium, vein, leukocyte and gland. The tracer was retained in the cytoplasma but not in the nuclei in most parts of the nasal tissue except for the endothelial cells of the vein. Therefore we assume that there is a(More)
While NF90 has been known to participate in transcription, translation and microRNA biogenesis, physiological functions of this protein still remain unclear. To uncover this, we generated transgenic (Tg) mice using NF90 cDNA under the control of β-actin promoter. The NF90 Tg mice exhibited a reduction in body weight compared with wild-type mice, and a(More)
