A dramatic rise in the incidence of obesity in the U.S. has accelerated the search for interventions that may impact this epidemic. One recently recognized target for such intervention is adipose tissue, which secretes a variety of bioactive substances including prostaglandins. Prostaglandin E₂ (PGE₂) has been shown to decrease lipolysis in adipocytes, but(More)
We studied the expression of peripheral myelin protein 22 (PMP22) gene in the human central nervous system (CNS). Northern blot analysis was performed with polyA+ RNA blots containing several parts of the human brain and the spinal cord using human PMP22 cDNA as a probe. As two alternative PMP22 transcripts have been reported and since exon 1A-containing(More)
A Japanese male patient presented with an enormously disfigured penis and scrotum. The penis was swollen and distorted rightward, and the skin was hard and lumpy. The patient had had a subdermal abscess for 6 years. The current condition was considered secondary lymphoedema of the penis and scrotum resulting from chronic skin infection. Wide excision of the(More)
Seedling genotype is one of the major factors affecting seedling survival when the rate of damage by natural enemies depends on a host genotype. However, to our knowledge, no previous study has examined the mortality of seedlings adjacent to conspecific adults, considering intraspecific variation in seedling genotypes. On the basis of the assumption that(More)
Dendrochronological approaches enable us to understand forest stand dynamics by estimation of disturbance history and age structure. The present study was conducted in an old-growth beech forest in a forest reserve in western Japan. Increment cores were taken for tree ring analysis from all canopy trees in a 50 m × 130 m study plot. Radial growth release(More)
A 46-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital for examination of her amnesia. Psychiatric examinations revealed that her recent memory was moderately disturbed despite well-preserved general cognitive function. Brain MRI and I-IMP SPECT (eZIS) revealed mild brain atrophy and hypoperfusion localized to the hippocampus, superior parietal lobule, and(More)
We analyzed the first audiological assessment and latest pure tone audiometry (PTA) in 29 hearing-impaired children (58 ears) visiting Osaka University for their first audiological assessment at the ages of 0, 1, and 2. We evaluated their hearing thresholds with PTA during follow-up and compared them to their first assessments. We combined auditory(More)
