Ganglioside GM(3) (NeuAcalpha3Galbeta4Glcbeta1Cer) is known to regulate the proliferation of many cell types and to maintain the charge-selective filtration barrier of glomeruli. Based on these, this study examined whether altered expression of ganglioside GM(3) was pathologically related with glomerular hypertrophy and proteinuria occurring in diabetic(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to understand the involvement of imprinted genes in the pathogenesis of gestational trophoblastic diseases (GTD) such as hydatidiform mole (H-mole) and gestational trophoblastic tumors (GTT). METHODS An allelic-typing assay was performed using a PCR-RFLP-based method for identification of heterozygous informative cases. The usage of(More)
Although there exist many middlewares such as Havi, Jini, LonWorks, UPnP, and SLP, new middlewares specialized for diverse information appliances are expected to appear continuously as home networks evolve. In this paper, we first investigate an integrated architecture for supporting interoperability among heterogeneous middlewares on home networks. We then(More)
Mobile cloud-based video streaming services cannot be provided seamlessly when network traffic increases sharply in congested areas such as colleges, universities, and downtown at specific times. This paper proposes a configuration scheme for connectivity-aware P2P networks which can reduce network traffic of cloud-based streaming servers through sharing of(More)
Biallelic expression of insulin-like growth factor-II (IGF2) has been reported to be associated with progression of several tumors. Here, we report that the promoter usage and expression levels of IGF2 and H19 were altered in cervical carcinoma showing loss of imprinting. The imprinting status was examined in 32 cervical carcinomas and their matched normal(More)
