Alzheimer's disease (AD) and Parkinson's disease (PD) have overlapping clinical and pathological features, suggesting a common pathway for these 2 neurodegenerative disorders. Here we investigated the association of both AD and PD GWAS top hits with PD susceptibility. We selected 25 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 9 genes (ABCA7, APOE, BST1, CLU,(More)
Hematopoiesis is a complex process requiring multiple regulators for hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (HSPC) and differentiation to multi-lineage blood cells. TC1(C8orf4) is implicated in cancers, hematological malignancies and inflammatory activation. Here, we report that Tc1 regulates hematopoiesis in mice. Myeloid and lymphoid cells are increased(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of this study was to identify the profile of rare variants associated with Crohn's disease (CD) using whole exome sequencing (WES) analysis of Korean children with CD and to evaluate whether genetic profiles could provide information during medical decision making. METHODS DNA samples from 18 control individuals and 22 patients(More)
Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is a valid predictor for cardiovascular mortality and morbidity regardless of age, gender, and race. The HyperGEN study conducted a genome-wide association study and identified twelve single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with LVH. The aim of this study was to validate these candidate SNPs in the Korean(More)
Innovation challenges are increasingly adopted for idea generation in inter-and intra-firm innovation to elicit novel solutions from employees to strategic and business-related problems of the firm. However, the current idea-oriented approach is limited in leveraging the full capacity of open innovation, as it focuses more on identifying the best ideas(More)
TRF2 is a ubiquitous protein that protects telomeres in the nucleus. We found that TRF2 was present at the peripheral nerve axons and the brain neuroglial cell processes extensively. It was in the cytoplasmic membrane as well as nuclear fractions, but not in the soluble cytoplasmic fraction of SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cells. TRF2 was up-regulated in P19(More)
