The rice japonica cultivars Nipponbare and Koshihikari differ in heading date and response of heading to photoperiod (photoperiod sensitivity). Using simple sequence repeat (SSR) and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers, we conducted quantitative trait locus (QTL) analyses for heading date in a set of reciprocal backcross inbred lines (BILs) from(More)
Freshwater fishes that have been isolated by artificial dams have become models for studying the effects of recent barriers on genetic variation and population differentiation. In this study, we examined the genetic structure of 11 populations of white-spotted charr (Salvelinus leucomaenis) by using polymorphic microsatellite loci. Reduced genetic(More)
Super-Kamiokande is the world’s largest water Cherenkov detector, with net mass 50,000 tons. During the period April, 1996 to July, 2001, Super-Kamiokande I collected 1678 live-days of data, observing neutrinos from the Sun, Present address: University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA 15260, USA. Present address: California Institute of Technology, Pasadena,(More)
The population structure and spatial pattern of major tree species in a warm-temperate old-growth evergreen broad-leaved forest in the Tatera Forest Reserve of Japan were investigated. All stems ≥ 5 cm in diameter at breast height (DBH) were mapped on a 4 ha plot and analyses were made of population structure and the spatial distribution and spatial(More)
Background: After confirming a favorable outcome of laparoscopic surgery for early colorectal cancer, we conducted a randomized controlled trial to compare short-term outcomes of laparoscopic and open colectomy for advanced colorectal cancer. Methods: Fifty-nine patients with T2 or T3 colorectal cancer were randomized to undergo laparoscopic (n = 29) or(More)
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is known to be produced by various solid tumours and is thought to be involved in microvascular permeability and/or angiogenesis. To examine the relationship between VEGF expression in ovarian neoplasms and clinicopathological factors or patient survival, expression of VEGF was analysed immunohistochemically in 110(More)
The serum levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) produced as an inflammatory response in dogs with various disorders and surgical traumas were measured by enzyme-linked immunoabsorbent assay and slide reversed passive latex agglutination test (RPLA). The CRP levels were greatly increased 1–2 days after surgery in most of the dogs (n=29) subjected to surgery.(More)
We analyzed the natural course of fistula in ano (FIA) and/or perianal abscess (PAA) in 97 children (male: 90, female: 7) and recommend conservative management in infants. Nearly one-half of these children had no recurrent episodes, and 80% of the infants recovered spontaneously within their 1st year of life. A radical operation was required in only 6(More)
PURPOSE To determine the correlation between the recovery of foveal microstructure and the visual acuity or the foveal sensitivity after idiopathic macular hole (MH) closure. DESIGN Prospective, consecutive, observational case series. METHODS We studied 43 eyes of 43 patients before and 1, 3, and 6 months after MH surgery. The best-corrected visual(More)
