The existence of isolated cytopenia in myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) has been described, however, the exact clinico-hematologic features of such MDS patients are still obscure. The aim of this study was to provide additive clinico-hematologic information on MDS patients with isolated thrombocytopenia in comparison with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura(More)
Microglial activation has recently been recognized as a cause of damage in various neurodegenerative diseases. A possible mechanism underlying this damage is the activation of microglia by serum factors leaked through a disruption of the blood-brain barrier, which in turn trigger microglial cell proliferation and the release of various substances toxic to(More)
Protein-arginine N-methyltransferase (protein methylase I) catalyzes methylation of arginyl residues on substrate protein posttranslationally utilizing S-adenosyl-L-methionine as the methyl donor and yields NG-methylarginine residues. Arginyl-fructose and arginyl-fructosyl-glucose from Korean red ginseng were found to inhibit protein methylase I activity in(More)
