BACKGROUND In surface antigen of hepatitis B virus (HBsAg)-positive carrier for anticancer treatment of malignant lymphoma, it is well recognized that reactivation of hepatitis B virus (HBV) occasionally occurs. However, there have been only a few studies of HBV reactivation in serum HBsAg-negative and hepatitis B core antigen (HBcAb)-positive occult HBV(More)
The alpha mating pheromones synthesized in three Saccharomyces yeasts (S. cerevisiae, S. kluyveri, and S. exiguus) displayed interspecific actions on the a cells of all three species despite the fact that the amino acid sequences of all three alpha pheromones are different. Mating between species, however, did not occur. The interspecific alpha pheromone--a(More)
The subject was a 24-year-old man who presented with acute fever, dry cough, and dyspnea. Chest X-ray films revealed diffuse infiltrates in both lungs. Bronchoalveolar lavage fluid specimens contained an increased number of eosinophils. Transbronchial lung biopsy specimens demonstrated the infiltration of eosinophils into alveolar walls and air spaces.(More)
We isolated heterothallic strains from a homothallic strain of S. exiguus by mutagenization with UV or ethylmethanesulfonate (EMS). A gene, not linked to the mating-type locus, was found to control homothallism in the yeast, as in S. cerevisiae. alpha Pheromone of S. exiguus (alpha se pheromone) induced formation of large pear-shaped cells (shmooing) in(More)
