1. INTROOIICI' ION Recently, encouraged by deregulation ultra-wideband (UWB) technology has attracted attention for use in communication and sensing applications in the commercial domain. In February 2002 the Federal Com~nunications Commission (FCC) in the United States conditionally waived unlicensed operation of the personal UWB products in the private(More)
A new approach for the treatment of arteriovenous malformations in the medial temporal lobe is proposed. This approach, referred to as the "transinsular approach," comprises incising the superior part of the anterior insula and exploring the plexal point of the anterior choroidal artery through the space between the dissected insula and the frontal lobe. A(More)
Resveratrol has various attractive bioactivities, such as prevention of cancer, neurodegenerative disorders, and obesity-related diseases. Therefore, identifying its direct binding proteins is expected to discover druggable targets. Sirtuin 1 and phosphodiesterases have so far been found as the direct molecular targets of resveratrol. We herein identified(More)
Emerging evidence suggests that caveolin-1 (Cav1) is associated with pulmonary arterial hypertension. MURC (also called Cavin-4) is a member of the cavin family, which regulates caveolar formation and functions together with caveolins. Here, we show that hypoxia increased Murc mRNA expression in the mouse lung, and that Murc-null mice exhibited attenuation(More)
Mutations in the PTRF/Cavin-1 gene cause congenital generalized lipodystrophy type 4 (CGL4) associated with myopathy. Additionally, long-QT syndrome and fatal cardiac arrhythmia are observed in patients with CGL4 who have homozygous PTRF/Cavin-1 mutations. PTRF/Cavin-1 deficiency shows reductions of caveolae and caveolin-3 (Cav3) protein expression in(More)
We report a 30-year-old man presenting with medial longitudinal fasciculus (MLF) syndrome after an afternoon nap. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a right medial pontine tegmental infarction and right cerebellar infarctions. This patient was complicated with basilar impression detected on cervical X-ray and MRI. Three-dimensional CT angiography disclosed(More)
It is not easy to predict functional outcome in patients with acute-stage thalamic hemorrhage. We analysed 100 cases of hypertensive thalamic hemorrhage less than 4 cm in diameter, and devised a practical CT classification for predicting the patients' prognoses. On an axial CT scan at the level of the pineal body, four lines were drawn as follows: line (a)(More)
A 6-month-old boy having intraspinal lipoma with lumbosacral subcutaneous lipoma and occult spinal dysraphism is described. CT scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are demonstrated. On admission, the patient showed no neurological deficits. Lumbosacral hemangioma and subcutaneous lipoma were noticed on physical examination. A plain spinal(More)
