Sexual reproduction of fungi is governed by genes located on the mating-type (MAT) locus. To analyze the MAT locus of the genus Diaporthe (anamorph: Phomopsis), a large genera within the ascomycetous class Sordariomycetes, we cloned and sequenced loci MAT1-1 and MAT1-2 from two heterothallic Diaporthe species, designated as Diaporthe W- and G-types (four(More)
An 84-year-old woman was admitted to hospital with chest pain at rest. An electrocardiogram showed ST-segment elevation in leads II, III, aV(F) and V(2-6), and the 2-dimension echocardiogram showed apical ballooning akinesis and basal hyperkinesis of both ventricles. (99m)Tc-tetrofosmin myocardial single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) showed(More)
In myocardial perfusion imaging, multiple-vessel involvement of coronary artery disease (CAD) sometimes makes diagnosis difficult. Transient left ventricular (LV) dilatation on Tl-201 myocardial SPECT is a useful finding that enables the clinician to identify patients with multiple-vessel disease. The aim of this study was to confirm the utility of(More)
Black spot disease, which is caused by the Japanese pear pathotype of the filamentous fungus Alternaria alternata (Fries) Keissler, is one of the most harmful diseases in Japanese pear cultivation. We mapped a gene for susceptibility to black spot disease in the Japanese pear (Pyrus pyrifolia Nakai) cultivar 'Kinchaku' (Aki gene) at the top of linkage group(More)
The subject was a 65-year-old woman with chest pain. An electrocardiogram revealed T-wave-inversion in leads III, aVF, V1-V5. 99mTc-tetrofosmin myocardial SPECT showed mildly reduced uptake in the anteroseptal wall and the apex. These findings suggested acute myocardial ischemia. Coronary angiography did not show any stenotic lesions, but diffuse coronary(More)
A 73-year-old woman suffering from septic shock was given circulatory assistance by intra-aortic balloon pumping (IABP). Eleven hours later, pumping stopped abruptly and blood reflux was observed in the intra-aortic balloon catheter (IABC). We removed it and inserted another IABC; 3.5 h later, pumping stopped again and blood reflux was seen. Removal of the(More)
Sympathetic nerve system is activated as a compensatory mechanism in heart failure. However, excessive activation of sympathetic nerve system deteriorates disease state. Sympathetic nerve system can be suppressed with N-type Ca2+ channel blocker. An antihypertensive drug, cilnidipine, is a dual L/N-type Ca2+ channel blocker. We studies usefulness of(More)
We reported a case of a 72-year-old man with chest pain. An electrocardiogram showed ST segment elevation in I, II, III, aVL, aVF and V1-6 leads. 99mTc-tetrofosmin myocardial SPECT showed defect in the anterior, septal, apical and inferior walls. Coronary angiography showed 99% stenosis of the proximal right coronary artery and total occlusion of the(More)
A 69-year-old woman presented with dyspnea on exertion. Echocardiography showed dilatation and diffuse hypokinesis of the left ventricle. 99mTc-tetrofosmin myocardial SPECT showed moderately reduced uptake in the anteroseptal wall and the inferior wall on the rest images, but was improved on the ATP loading images. 123I-BMIPP myocardial SPECT showed(More)
Echocardiography demonstrated a high echoic lesion(6 x 5 mm) in the apex of the left ventricle of a 72-year-old man(Case 1) and similar lesions(7 x 6 mm and 4 x 3 mm) in the apex of the left ventricle of a 60-year-old man(Case 2). The amplitude of cyclic variation of integrated backscattering of the high echoic lesions was measured by acoustic densitometry(More)
