Two types of regulatory T (T reg) cells express Foxp3, thymus-generated natural T reg (nT reg) cells, and peripherally generated adaptive T reg (iT reg) cells. These cell types have complementary functions. Until now, it has not been possible to distinguish iT reg from nT reg cells in(More)

BACKGROUND Watching three-dimensional television (3D TV) may strain the eyes. However, other potential harmful effects of 3D TV watching have been rarely investigated. The current study examined the impact of 3D TV watching on neurophysiological responses and cognitive functioning as compared with two-dimensional TV (2D TV) watching. METHODS A total of 72(More)
Serious economic losses due to red seabream iridovirus (RSIV) infection have occurred in fingerlings and market-sized rock bream Oplegnathus fasciatus in Korea. Previously, it was demonstrated that fishes immunized with a live fish RNA virus following polyinosinic–polycytidylic acid [Poly(I:C), an inducer of interferon (IFN)] administration were protected(More)
