Because of recent advances in wireless communication technologies, the world of mobile computing is flourishing with a variety of applications. In this study, we present an integrated architecture for a personal digital assistant (PDA)-based mobile medical display system that supports collaborative work between remote users. We aim to develop a system that(More)
We have proposed novel 3D virtual simulation software for breast plastic surgery. Our software comprises two processes: a 3D torso modeling and a virtual simulation of the surgery result. First, image-based modeling is performed in order to obtain a female subject’s 3D torso data. Our image-based modeling method utilizes a template model, and this is(More)
We conducted experiments in Drosophila to investigate the consequences of altered acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity in the nervous system. In ace hypomorphic mutant larvae, the amount of ace mRNA and the activity of AChE both in vivo and in vitro were significantly reduced compared with those of controls. Reduced Ace in Drosophila larvae resulted in(More)
BACKGROUND Wound healing is a dynamic and complex process of tissue repair, which involves a number of cellular and molecular events. It progresses from an inflammatory response to re-epithelialisation and, finally, to the formation of a permanent scar. The pharmacological activities of honeybee (Apis mellifera L.) venom (BV) have been used in wound healing(More)
To investigate the in vivo functions of normal prion protein (PrP) in Drosophila, we utilized characterized transgenic flies expressing ³(F)⁴-tagged mouse PrP (Mo-PrP³(F)⁴). The neurotoxicity of pathogenic Machado-Joseph Disease (MJD) glutamine (Q) 78 and 127Q proteins were enhanced by the co-expression of Mo-PrP³(F)⁴in the fly eyes, while the eyes of(More)

Sex ratio distorting endosymbionts induce reproductive anomalies in their arthropod hosts. They have recently been paid much attention as firstly texts of evolution of host-symbiont relationships and secondly potential biological control agents to control arthropod pests. Among such organisms, Wolbachia and Cardinium bacteria are well characterized. This(More)
Haitlingeria longilobata n. g., n. sp. (Acari: Astigmata: Canestriniidae) is described from Serrognathus platymelus castauicolor Motschulsky (Coleoptera: Lucanidae) from South Korea. Diagnostic features include: the presence of two long lobes on the male opisthosoma; the idiosoma length is similar to the idiosoma width; the hysterosoma is ornamented by(More)
The ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene region of the fourNosema sp. isolates (C01, C02, C03 and C04) fromPieris rapae in Korea has been examined. Complete DNA sequence data (3779 bp) of The rRNA gene ofNosema sp. C01 are presented for the small subunit gene (SSU rRNA: 1236 bp), the internal transcribed spacer (ITS: 37 bp), and the large subunit gene (LSU rRNA 2506(More)
