Leukotriene A4 (LTA4) hydrolase catalyzes the final step in leukotriene B4 (LTB4) synthesis. In addition to its role in LTB4 synthesis, the enzyme possesses aminopeptidase activity. In this study, we sought to define the subcellular distribution of LTA4 hydrolase in alveolar epithelial cells, which lack 5-lipoxygenase and do not synthesize LTA4.(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of CellSlidetrade mark (CS) method in liquid-based gynecologic cytology. METHODS We compared 1221 specimens prepared by both CS and conventional techniques to evaluate specimen adequacy and cytologic diagnoses. Sensitivity and specificity of these techniques were analyzed in 54 cases using the available histological(More)

This paper addresses a new method of constructing Korean-Chinese verb patterns from existing patterns. A verb pattern is a subcategorization frame of a predicate extended by translation information. Korean-Chinese verb patterns are invaluable linguistic resources that only used for Korean-Chinese transfer but also for Korean parsing. Usually a verb pattern(More)
The major component of car washer fluid is a methanol. Intracranial hemorrhage is a rare but lethal complication in methanol poisoning. We report a case of massive bilateral basal ganglia hematoma in a 32-year-old man with methanol poisoning. He drank car washer solution twice time (about 500 ml), and was admitted to a territorial hospital 10 hours(More)
Forensic research using microRNA has been used so far only for the identification of body fluids, but its use in understanding biological processes in post-mortem pathology has not been studied before. Therefore, we performed experiments in mice to compare between freshwater and saltwater drowning models, and miRNA expression was analyzed in the brain(More)
