FK506 binding protein 12 (FK506BP) belongs to a family of immunophilins, and is involved in multiple biological processes. However, the function of FK506BP in corneal disease remains unclear. In this study, we examined the protective effects on dry eye disease in a Botulinum toxin A (BTX-A) induced mouse model, using a cell-permeable PEP-1-FK506BP protein.(More)
UNLABELLED Light-activated tooth bleaching with a high hydrogen peroxide (HP; H2O2) concentration has risks and the actual role of the light source is doubtful. The use of conventional light might result in an increase in the temperature and cause thermal damage to the health of the tooth tissue. OBJECTIVE This study investigated the efficacy of tooth(More)
An efficient measure of the concrete block structure inspection is needed with the increasing demand for concrete blocks. Cracks in the surface of RC member's can be used as a useful measure of quake-proofness of a construction or material fatigue. Specialists used to observe the cracks and experimentally inspect the structures, while applying destructive(More)
The present study demonstrates the impact of specific breed on the characteristics of dry-cured ham. Eighty thighs from Korean native pig (KNP), crossbreed (Landrace×Yorkshire)♀×Duroc♂ (LYD), Berkshire (Ber), and Duroc (Du) pig breeds (n = 10 for each breed) were used for processing of dry-cured ham. The thighs were salted with 6% NaCl (w/w) and 100 ppm(More)
BACKGROUND Currently, there is sparse data available on the relationship between coronary heart disease (CHD) and its risk factors estimated by the Framingham Risk Score (FRS) in Korea. This is particularly true when looking at risk factors of CHD associated with the FRS after adjustment for other covariates especially in healthy subjects. (More)
Basic information regarding the yield and nutritional composition of edible pork by-products, namely heart, liver, lung, stomach, spleen, uterus, pancreas, and small and large intestines, was studied. Our results revealed that the yields varied widely among the pork by-products examined; in particular, liver had the highest yield (1.35%); whereas, spleen(More)
Influenza infection increases the risk of ischemic stroke. Here, we represent a case of a 32year-old female who presented with acutely developed altered mental status after influenza A infection. The clinical manifestation and initial lesion on brain DWI mimicked top of basilar syndrome, but without an arterial occlusion or stenosis. Follow-up neuro imaging(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies suggest that habitual exercise can improve skeletal mitochondrial function; however, to date, the association between exercise and mitochondrial function in peripheral leukocytes has not been reported. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between regular exercise and mitochondrial function by measuring leukocyte(More)
JMD Dropped head syndrome (DHS) is commonly observed in patients with parkinsonism, including those with multiple system atrophy and Parkinson's disease (PD). In PD, DHS is aggravated during off period or develops after the introduction of do-pamine agonists (DAs). 1 Although DHS is considered as dystonia by some authors, clinical and laboratory findings(More)
The effect of ripening time on the technological quality traits, fatty acid compositions and sensory characteristics of dry-cured loin was studied. Pork loins (n = 102) at 24 h post-mortem were used to produce dry-cured loins. The dry-cured loins were assessed at 30, 60, and 90 days of ripening for the aforementioned characteristics. Our results showed that(More)
