Clinical manifestations of chronic intoxication due to organophosphorus pesticide (OP) and treatment by prifinium bromide, an anticholinergic drug (Padrin), have been introduced. All patients showed oculopathy, mainly neuro-ophthalmological impairments such as: 1. optic neuropathy, 2. degeneration of the retina, 3. defective vertical smooth pursuit, 4.(More)
Transglutaminase (TGase) is an enzyme that modifies proteins by crosslinking or polyamination. Physarum polycephalum, an acellular slime mold, is the evolutionally lowest organism that has a mammalian-type transglutaminase. We have cloned a cDNA for Physarum polycephalum TGase (PpTGB), homologous to a previously identified TGase (PpTGA), whose sequence is(More)
We report a case of IgM-lambda type monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance showing non-specific anti-streptolysin O activity of extremely high level. An 83-year-old man developed high grade fever, cough and sputum. He was admitted to our hospital under a diagnosis of acute pneumonia by chest X-ray. He showed anti-streptolysin O (ASO) activity in(More)
Monoclonal antibodies (Mabs) are important biomolecules in immunology and have widespread applications in prognosis, diagnosis, and therapeutics. Here, we describe a novel approach called single-cell RT-PCR-linked in vitro expression (SICREX), which enables the high-throughput generation and screening of Mabs. This approach entails the isolation of B cells(More)
We report a case of CD7+ stem cell lymphoma. A 47-year-old man presented with general malaise and lumbago in April 1997. The patient exhibited swollen left cervical lymph-nodes and an intra-abdominal bulky mass. He was referred to us because lymph-node biopsy specimens indicated a diagnosis of diffuse type malignant lymphoma. An abdominal CT scan disclosed(More)
9-(cis-3-Hydroxymethyl-2-methylenecyclobutyl)guanine (3b) and 9-(3-methylene-trans-2-hydroxymethylcyclobutyl)guanine (4b) were prepared from N2-isobutyryl-9-[trans-trans-2,3-bis(hydroxymethyl)cyclobutyl]guanine (2f) or 2,3-bis(hydroxymethyl)-1-cyclobutanol (7b). Carbocyclic oxetanocin analogues (A, 1d; G, 2d) and related compounds including 4b were assayed(More)
A 47-year-old man had been given a diagnosis of mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD) on 1987 when he had presented with Raynaud's phenomenon, polyarthralgia, sclerodactyly, and a high titre of anti-RNP antibody. Once his symptoms had improved following the administration of prednisolone orally and the treatment was discontinued since 1995. He noticed(More)
