Transcriptional regulation by transcriptional regulatory factors (TRFs) of their target TRF genes is central to the control of gene expression. To study a static multi-tiered inter-TRF regulatory network in the human hepatoma cells, we have applied a Matrix RNAi approach in which siRNA knockdown and quantitative RT-PCR are used in combination on the same(More)
Background. We retrospectively analyzed whether poor differentiation is the independent prognostic factor for thyroid carcinoma or not. Methods. The subjects were 29 patients with PDTC who were treated between April 1996 and March 2006 to compare with those of well-differentiated papillary carcinoma patients (n = 227). Results. The relapse free (RFS),(More)
The thermal transitions of confined polymers are important for the application of polymers in molecular scale devices and advanced nanotechnology. However, thermal transitions of ultrathin polymer assemblies confined in subnanometre spaces are poorly understood. In this study, we show that incorporation of polyethylene glycol (PEG) into nanochannels of(More)
We evaluated the effectiveness of two representative marine zooplankton, the harpacticoid copepod Tigriopus japonicus and the euryhaline cladoceran Diaphanosoma celebensis, as live food for red sea bream Pagrus major larvae. Chicken-dropping extract (CDE) was applied to both zooplankton cultures to improve population growth. Population growth of both(More)
PURPOSE We investigated the effectiveness of a newly developed device for the delivery of local anesthetics in the treatment of axillary osmidrosis and hyperhidrosis. We developed a device with three fine, stainless steel needles fabricated with a bevel angle facing outside ("three-microneedle device" [TMD]) to release a drug broadly and homogeneously into(More)
The patient was a 44-year-old woman who exhibited a diffuse goiter during health screening. Her medical history did not include any significant medication-based treatment. An echographic examination detected a solid cystic tumor, which measured 21 × 14 × 10 mm, in her right thyroid lobe; however, she displayed normal thyroid function. After fine-needle(More)
