PURPOSE To investigate the longitudinal changes in retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness after pars plana vitrectomy for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. METHODS This prospective study examined 33 vitrectomy patients who were diagnosed with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. Optical coherence tomography was conducted 6, 12, and 24 months after(More)
Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa subsp. pekinensis) is an economically important vegetable that has encountered four rounds of polyploidization. The fourth event, whole genome triplication (WGT), occurred after its divergence from Arabidopsis. Expansins (EXPs) are cell wall loosening proteins that participate in cell wall modification processes. In this(More)
Circadian clocks regulate plant growth and development in response to environmental factors. In this function, clocks influence the adaptation of species to changes in location or climate. Circadian-clock genes have been subject of intense study in models such as Arabidopsis thaliana but the results may not necessarily reflect clock functions in species(More)
Glutelin is a major seed storage protein, accounting for 60–80 % of the total endosperm protein content in rice. To test whether we could augment the expression of an introduced recombinant protein in rice by suppressing the glutelin gene, we generated transgenic glutelin RNAi (glu RNAi) rice seeds. RNA gel blot analyses confirmed that the endogenous(More)
BrAGL20 (SOC1) containing MADS box, a floral integrator gene, was introduced into Brassica napus cv. “Youngsan” by Agrobacterium-mediated transformation. Constitutively overexpressed BrAGL20 under the CaMV 35S promoter induced early flowering time compared to the wild-type. These phenotypes were stably inherited through generations T2 and T3, regardless of(More)
Strain 16F1ET was isolated from a 3-kGy-irradiated sediment sample collected at Han River in Seoul, Republic of Korea. Cells of this strain were observed to be Gram-positive, pililike structure, and short rod shape, and colonies were red in color. The strain showed the highest degree of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to Deinococcus aquaticus PB314T(More)
A 50-year-old man had undergone lumbar vertebral surgery and was confined to bed in the supine position for three months. When he sat up from the prolonged supine position, he showed clinical signs of orthostatic hypotension and reported decreased vision in both eyes. He also had underlying anemia. Ophthalmologic findings suggested bilateral anterior(More)
Seed development is a complex but orchestrated process that requires the fine-tuning of parentally governed gene expression, which is regulated by Polycomb proteins. Over the last decade, various Polycomb proteins have been identified and functionally characterized in plants, and it has been found that they form the PRC2 suppressor complex, which is(More)
A Gram-stain-negative, non-motile, non-spore-forming, rodshaped, aerobic bacterial strain, designated 16F3Y-2T, was isolated from the Han River, South Korea, and was characterized taxonomically using a polyphasic approach. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed that strain 16F3Y-2T belonged to the family Cytophagaceae in the phylum Bacteroidetes(More)
A number of studies have been conducted on hybridization between transgenic Brassica napus and B. rapa or backcross of F1 hybrid to their parents. However, trait changes must be analyzed to evaluate hybrid sustainability in nature. In the present study, B. rapa and transgenic (BrAGL20) B. napus were hybridized to verify the early flowering phenomenon of F1(More)
