Brassinosteroids (BRs) regulate a wide range of developmental and physiological processes in plants through a receptor-kinase signaling pathway that controls the BZR transcription factors. Here, we use transcript profiling and chromatin-immunoprecipitation microarray (ChIP-chip) experiments to identify 953 BR-regulated BZR1 target (BRBT) genes. Functional(More)
BACKGROUND With the globalization of clinical trials, a growing emphasis has been placed on the standardization of the workflow in order to ensure the reproducibility and reliability of the overall trial. Despite the importance of workflow evaluation, to our knowledge no previous studies have attempted to adapt existing modeling languages to standardize the(More)

Purpose. Since topical application of sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) has been reported to elevate transepidermal water loss and decrease skin capacitance in areas immediately adjacent to the applied site, studies were carried out to quantify the extent of radial spread of SLS below a topically exposed site in a hairless rat model. Methods. Fixed sites were(More)
Nevus lipomatosus cutaneous superficialis is a rare idiopathic hamartomatous anomaly of the skin characterized by the presence of clusters of mature fat cells among the collagen bundles of the dermis. The classic, or solitary type, presents with asymptomatic soft, skin-colored to yellow papules or nodules. We report the case of a 12-year-old boy with(More)
Endometrial metaplasias are of two types, epithelial metaplasia which is commonly encountered and stromal metaplasia, unusually seen. This includes formation within endometrial stroma, islands of smooth muscle, cartilage, and bone. Endometrial stromal (cartilaginous) metaplasias are conditions frequently overlooked and misdiagnosed. Hence, a careful(More)
BACKGROUND HIV-positive females are more likely to have abnormal Pap smears than HIV-negative women. These abnormal Pap smears are usually associated with low CD4 cell counts and human papilloma virus infection. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a prospective hospital-based study from April 2013 till March 2014. A total of 250 (both symptomatic and(More)
