We previously identified several proteins that are differentially expressed in pathogenic hyphae by comparing protein profiles of yeast and hyphae of Candida albicans. One of these, thiol-specific antioxidant 1 (TSA1), attracted our attention because it may play some roles in surviving an unfavourable oxidative environment created by host cells. Two alleles(More)
OBJECTIVE Delayed facial palsy (DFP) has often been described during the recovery stage of Fisher syndrome (FS), but the implications of DFP in FS pathophysiology have not been reported previously. The aim of this study was to identify the incidence and clinical course of DFP in FS, and to determine its clinical/pathophysiological implications in FS. (More)
The calcium regulated calcineurin-nuclear factor of activated T cells (NFAT) pathway modulates the physiology of numerous cell types, including hematopoietic. Upon activation, calcineurin dephosphorylates NFAT family transcription factors, triggering their nuclear entry and activation or repression of target genes. NFATc1 and c2 isoforms are expressed in(More)
Hirayama disease usually selectively involves lower cervical myotomes (C8, T1). Thus, patients usually manifest with atrophy and weakness of small hand muscle. Predominant isolated involvement of proximal arm is rarely reported in Hirayama disease. Here, we report a case of Hirayama disease who had focal weakness and wasting, mainly confined to right biceps(More)
Slow orthostatic tremor (OT) occurred to longer and lower frequency regular rhythmic bursts in leg muscle upon standing. The slow OT was often able to clinically confused with orthostatic myoclonus. We described a Parkinson's disease patient with levodopa responsive slow OT. She showed abnormal movements of more regular rhythms and stable frequency on both(More)
These faculty members not only served their academic duties on my committee, they also helped me keep my sense of humor as well as my wits about me as I moved through my program of work and dissertation. I simply could not have picked a better committee and thank each of them for their contributions. Beyond my academic advisors, I must also thank all those(More)
