A case of 64-year-old Japanese woman with cervical radiculomyelopathy caused by the deposition of both calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate (CPPD) and hydroxyapatite crystals in the cervical ligamentum flavum is reported. The patient developed paresthesia in her both hands and gait disturbance in the previous six months. Neurological examination revealed(More)
The authors describe three cases of cervical radiculomyelopathy caused by calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystal deposition disease (CPPDcdd). Radiological investigations revealed nodular calcifications, 5 to 7 mm in diameter, in the cervical ligamentum flavum compressing the spinal cord. Light microscopic, scanning electron microscopic, and x-ray(More)
In a previous report, we demonstrated that the exposure of cultured mouse cerebellar granule cells to permethrin, a type I pyrethroid insecticide, repressed the induction of activity-dependent c- fos and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) gene expression, accompanying a decrease in Ca(2+) influx into neurons. In addition, it has been suggested that(More)
Very few studies have been conducted on alkaline adaptation of Gram-negative alkaliphiles. The reversed difference of H(+) concentration across the membrane will make energy production considerably difficult for Gram-negative as well as Gram-positive bacteria. Cells of the alkaliphilic Gram-negative bacterium Pseudomonas alcaliphila AL15-21(T) grown at pH(More)
Circannual pupation timing is not correlated with circadian period in the varied carpet beetle Anthrenus verbasci Anthrenus verbasci (Insecta, Coleoptera, Dermestidae) shows a circannual rhythm in pupation and a circadian rhythm in adult locomotor activity. The period length of the circannual rhythm will be correlated with the length of a circadian period(More)
The circannual pupation rhythm of Anthrenus verbasci is entrained to an environmental cycle by changes in photoperiod. Exposure of larvae reared under short-day conditions to long days induced a clear phase delay of the circannual rhythm. There was no notable difference in the initial phase or period of the circannual rhythm among four geographically(More)
A case of cervical radiculomyelopathy caused by multiple calcified nodules in the ligamenta flava is presented. Roentgenological examination of the cervical spine showed radiopaque nodular lesions, 7 x 7 x 5 mm in size, located in the paramedian portion of the posterior spinal canal. The nodules were removed surgically and they were confirmed to be(More)
In phytophagous insects, in spite of some general advantages of oviposition on a vital part of their host food plants, certain species prefer dead tissues for oviposition. In the present study, we examined oviposition-related behaviors of a cicada, Cryptotympana facialis (Walker), which lays eggs exclusively into dead twigs. From behavioral observation of(More)
This study evaluated the sphericity of bearing surfaces in total hip arthroplasty. The out-of-roundness of metal femoral heads, the inner surface of polyethylene liners, and commercially available ball bearings was measured. The hip prostheses were obtained directly from the manufacturers. The sphericity of the bearing surfaces was significantly inferior to(More)
