CspA, the major cold-shock protein of Escherichia coli, is dramatically induced during the cold-shock response. The amino acid sequence of CspA shows 43% identity to the "cold-shock domain" of the eukaryotic Y-box protein family, which interacts with RNA and DNA to regulate their functions. Here, we demonstrate that CspA binds to RNA as a chaperone. First,(More)
We have identified variants present in high-coverage complete sequences of 36 diverse human Y chromosomes from Africa, Europe, South Asia, East Asia, and the Americas, representing eight major haplogroups. After restricting our analysis to 8.97 Mb of the unique male-specific Y sequence, we identified 6662 high-confidence variants, including(More)
We describe here the identification and properties of SCH-C (SCH 351125), a small molecule inhibitor of HIV-1 entry via the CCR5 coreceptor. SCH-C, an oxime-piperidine compound, is a specific CCR5 antagonist as determined in multiple receptor binding and signal transduction assays. This compound specifically inhibits HIV-1 infection mediated by CCR5 in U-87(More)

Experiments were conducted to determine the effects of feeding different starch sources on piglets. Four diets were formulated with maize, brown rice, sticky rice and Hi-Maize 1043 as starch sources, with resistant starch (RS) contents of 2.3%, 0.9%, 0.0%, 20.6%, and amylose and amylopectin ratio of 0.23%, 0.21%, 0.18%, 0.06% respectively. Fifty-six pigs(More)
Human chromosome Y-specific short tandem repeat (Y-specific STR) markers have useful properties for forensic applications. However, there is a need to develop more Y-specific STR markers, because the discriminating power of each STR locus is limited. In the present study, we describe our results on six new Y-specific STR markers that were initially located(More)
A large number of short tandem repeat (STR) markers spanning the entire human X chromosome have been described and established for use in forensic genetic testing. Due to their particular mode of inheritance, X-STRs often allow easy and informative haplotyping in kinship analyses. Moreover, some X-STRs are known to be tightly linked so that, in combination,(More)
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a multisystem autoimmune disease, which, despite the advances in immunosuppressive medical therapies, remains potentially fatal in some patients, especially in treatment-refractory patients. This study found that transplantation of umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (UC-MSCs) has the same therapeutic effect as(More)
In spite of the initial and pivotal findings that the newly identified neuropeptide S (NPS) promotes arousal associated with locomotor and anxiolytic-like effects, the mechanisms through which NPS acts to modulate sleep-waking states remain unclear. The present study was undertaken to investigate in the rat the effects of i.c.v. injection of NPS on the EEG,(More)
Although it is known that parental carriers of structural chromosomal rearrangements are associated with recurrent pregnancy loss, subsequent natural pregnancies remain possible. We examined the reproductive outcome of a familial balanced translocation with t(3;6)(q12;q27). Karyotyping of the proband revealed 46,XY chromosomes with the balanced(More)
Electroencephalograms (EEGs) of children from the general population, assessed by Rutter's questionnaires as having deviant behavior, were quantitatively evaluated in Japan (n = 27), China (n = 39), and Korea (n = 87). Compared with age-matched normal behavior children in Japan (n = 30), China (n = 27), and Korea (n = 26), there were no differences either(More)
