We present the Ténéré, electric power extension cords, designed to support people's energy conservation behaviors. The focus of design solutions was to provide appropriate energy awareness information in meaningful and emotional ways while products are being used. A narrative of tree was used to indicate energy use. The Tree of Tenere was the(More)
Delayed cardiac relaxation in failing hearts has been attributed to reduced activity and/or expression of sarco(endo)plasmic reticulum Ca2+-ATPase 2a (SERCA2a). Although constitutive overexpression of SERCA2a has proven effective in preventing cardiac dysfunction, it is unclear whether increasing SERCA2a expression in hearts with preexisting hypertrophy(More)
Multidrug resistance 1 (MDR1) is a gene that expresses P-glycoprotein (P-gp), a drug transporter protein. Genetic polymorphisms of MDR1 can be associated with Sasang constitutions because Sasang constitutional medicine (SCM) prescribes different drugs according to different constitutions. A Questionnaire for Sasang Constitution Classification II (QSCC II)(More)
Epidemiological studies have demonstrated that the glutathione S-transferase (GST) null genotype is related to an increased susceptibility to diseases associated with several types of cancer. This study investigated the risk of developing gastric or colorectal cancer related to the GST polymorphisms in the Korean population. Genotyping was performed on the(More)
Sasang constitutional medicine is a major branch of Korean traditional Oriental medicine. The differences of disease susceptibility to be shown in Sasang constitution may be due to genetic factors. Therefore, the authors examined relationship between candidate genes of cerebral infarction (CI) and Sasang constitution. The homozygous deletion allele of the(More)
Gamisipjundaebo-tang (GSDBT) has been used for the purpose of development of physical strength. In the present study, we investigated the immune enhancing effect induced by GSDBT. We investigated the anti-immobility effect of GSDBT via a forced-swimming test and blood biochemical parameters related to fatigue, glucose, blood urea nitrogen, lactic(More)
This study was performed to develop methods for the chromatographic determination of biomarkers in Hwangryunhaedok-tang (HHT) and the quantitative evaluation of commercial HHT. To develop an analytical method, an RP-amide column (2.7 μm, 4.6 × 100 mm, Halo: Supelco, Bellefonte, PA) was used with a gradient solvent system of mixed acetonitrile and 0.1 %(More)
Multi-drug resistance 1 (MDR1) gene encodes P-glycoprotein, which is a transmembrane transporter that acts as an energy-dependent efflux pump of xenobiotics and various chemotherapeutic drugs. To investigate relationships between C3435T (exon 26) and G2677T/A (exon 21) polymorphisms of MDR1 and gastric cancer (GC) or colorectal cancer (CRC), 102 GC(More)
