Genetic factors, such as the genes involved in the serotonin pathway, probably play an important role in the pathogenesis of bipolar disorder, and serotonin type 2A (5-HT2A) receptor gene promoter polymorphism -1438A/G has been reported. This study investigated the association between -1438A/G polymorphism of 5-HT2A receptor gene promoter and bipolar(More)
The possible beneficial effects of chronic low-dose irradiation (LDR) and its mechanism of action in a variety of pathophysiological processes such as cancer are a subject of intense investigation. While animal studies involving long-term exposure to LDR have yielded encouraging results, the influence of LDR at the cellular level has been less well defined.(More)
Induction of T-cell apoptosis contributes to the anti-inflammatory and antineoplastic benefits of glucocorticoids. The glucocorticoid receptor (GR) translational isoforms have distinct proapoptotic activities in osteosarcoma cells. Here we determined whether GR isoforms selectively induce apoptosis in Jurkat T lymphoblastic leukemia cells. Jurkat cells(More)
We previously determined that AKR/J mice housed in a low-dose-rate (LDR) ((137)Cs, 0.7 mGy/h, 2.1 Gy) γ-irradiation facility developed less spontaneous thymic lymphoma and survived longer than those receiving sham or high-dose-rate (HDR) ((137)Cs, 0.8 Gy/min, 4.5 Gy) radiation. Interestingly, histopathological analysis showed a mild lymphomagenesis in the(More)

This paper is concerned with the determination of nonlinear roll damping moments of ships including similar floating structures. Using the measured motion response data of ship's roll motion, an inverse problem is formulated for the determination. The problem of damping determination is mathematically involved in a Volterra integral equation of the " first(More)
