Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-α (PPARα) is a dietary lipid sensor, whose activation results in hypolipidemic effects. In this study, we investigated whether PPARα activation affects energy metabolism in white adipose tissue (WAT). Activation of PPARα by its agonist (bezafibrate) markedly reduced adiposity in KK mice fed a high-fat diet. In(More)

OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the optimum dosage of dexmedetomidine for prevention of postanesthetic shivering. METHODS One-hundred thirty two ASA physical status I-II patients scheduled for elective laparoscopic total hysterectomy were enrolled in this randomised, placebo-controlled study. Patients were randomly allocated to receive(More)
PURPOSE To compare intersegmental displacements after mandibular setback sagittal split ramus osteotomy with reference to the fixation system applied: miniplate with monocortical screw, 3 bicortical screws, and 1 bicortical screw and 2 resorbable screws. MATERIALS AND METHODS The 42 subjects were divided into 3 groups according to the osteosynthesis(More)
The germination rate and longevity of seeds of Gastrodia elata Blume have been observed for 48 weeks using Mycena osmundicola strain H-21, one of fungi stimulating seed germination. Storage condition of post-harvest seeds was observed in the different temperature ranges of -30℃, -5℃, 5℃ and 30℃ for 48 weeks. After storage period of 48 weeks, the germination(More)
Dopaminergic degeneration is a hallmark of Parkinson's disease (PD), which causes various symptoms affected by corticostriatal circuits. So far, the relationship between cortical changes and dopamine loss in the striatum is unclear. Here, we evaluate the gray matter (GM) changes in accordance with striatal dopaminergic degeneration in PD using hybrid(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine whether the results of fractal analysis can be used as criteria for midpalatal suture maturation evaluation. METHODS The study included 131 subjects aged over 18 years of age (range 18.1-53.4 years) who underwent cone-beam computed tomography. Skeletonized images of the midpalatal suture were obtained(More)
This study aimed to determine the correlation between the volumetric parameters derived from the images of the second, third, and fourth cervical vertebrae by using cone beam computed tomography with skeletal maturation stages and to propose a new formula for predicting skeletal maturation by using regression analysis. We obtained the estimation of skeletal(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of this study was to determine, by statistical shape analysis of original and mirrored skeletal landmarks, the optimal landmark-based midsagittal reference plane for evaluation of facial asymmetry. METHODS The study sample comprised 69 patients with facial asymmetry (36 men, 33 women; mean age, 23.0 ± 4.1 years). All landmarks(More)
Cumulative evidence suggests the importance of organelle homeostasis in regulating metabolic functions in response to various cellular stresses. Particularly, the dynamism and health of the mitochondria-peroxisome network through fission and fusion are essential for cellular function; dysfunctional dynamism underlies the pathogenesis of several degenerative(More)
