REVERSIBILITY OVER PRIME RADICALS

Da Woon Jung, Yang Lee, Hyo Jin Sung
2014 Korean Journal of Mathematics  
The studies of reversible and 2-primal rings have done important roles in noncommutative ring theory. We in this note introduce the concept of quasi-reversible-over-prime-radical (simply, QRPR) as a generalization of the 2-primal ring property. A ring is called QRPR if ab = 0 for a, b ∈ R implies that ab is contained in the prime radical. In this note we study the structure of QRPR rings and examine the QRPR property of several kinds of ring extensions which have roles in noncommutative ring theory.

Structural insights into catalytic relevances of substrates' poses in ACC-1

Da-Woon Bae, Ye-Eun Jung, Young Jun An, Jung-Hyun Na, Sun-Shin Cha
2019 Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy  
ACC-1 is a plasmid-encoded class C β-lactamase identified in clinical isolates of Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis, Salmonella enterica, and Escherichia coli. ACC-1-producing bacteria are susceptible to cefoxitin whereas they are resistant to oxyimino cephalosporins. Here, we depict crystal structures of apo ACC-1, adenylylated ACC-1, and acylated ACC-1 complexed with cefotaxime and cefoxitin. ACC-1 has noteworthy structural alterations in the R2-loop, the Ω- loop, and the Phe119-loop

Cefotaxime in ACC-1 has a proper conformation for the substrate-assisted catalysis in that its C4 carboxylate and N5 nitrogen are adequately located to facilitate the deacylation reaction. In contrast, cefoxitin in ACC-1 has a distinct conformation in which those functional groups cannot contribute to catalysis. Furthermore, the orientation of the deacylating water relative to the acyl carbonyl group in ACC-1 is unfavorable for nucleophilic attack.

2019 Molecules  
A metabolic conversion study on microbes is known as one of the most useful tools to predict the xenobiotic metabolism of organic compounds in mammalian systems. The microbial biotransformation of isoxanthohumol (1), a major hop prenylflavanone in beer, has resulted in the production of three diastereomeric pairs of oxygenated metabolites (2–7). The microbial metabolites of 1 were formed by epoxidation or hydroxylation of the prenyl group, and HPLC, NMR, and CD analyses revealed that all of the

The structures of these metabolic compounds were elucidated to be (2S,2"S)- and (2R,2"S)-4′-hydroxy-5-methoxy-7,8-(2,2-dimethyl-3-hydroxy-2,3-dihydro-4H-pyrano)-flavanones (2 and 3), (2S)- and (2R)-7,4′-dihydroxy-5-methoxy-8-(2,3-dihydroxy-3-methylbutyl)-flavanones (4 and 5) which were new oxygenated derivatives, along with (2R)- and (2S)-4′-hydroxy-5-methoxy-2"-(1-hydroxy-1-methylethyl)dihydrofuro[2,3-h]flavanones (6 and 7) on the basis of spectroscopic data. These results could contribute to understanding the metabolic fates of the major beer prenylflavanone isoxanthohumol that occur in mammalian system.

Cervical Necrotizing Fasciitis Caused by Dental Infection

Chi-Woong Song, Hyun-Joong Yoon, Da-Woon Jung, Sang-Hwa Lee
2014 Maxillofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery  
Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is defined as rapidly progressive necrosis of subcutaneous fat and fascia. Although NF of the face is rare, its mortality rate is nearly 30%. It usually originates from dental infection and can lead to involvement of the neck, mediastinum, and chest wall. Complications resulting from pre-existing systemic diseases can increase the mortality rate. Known complication factors for NF include diabetes, malnutrition, advanced age, peripheral vascular disease, renal failure,

Oral allergy syndrome (OAS) is caused by cross-reactivity between certain pollens and plant foods, including vegetables, nuts, or fruits. Here, we experienced 2 cases of OAS patients associated with mugwort pollinosis without sensitization to Fagales. A 54-yearold female repeatedly experienced skin rashes, perioral edema, nasal obstruction after eating fresh vegetables (celery, lettuce, chicory, radish sprouts, ginseng, etc.). She had suffered from allergic rhinitis worsening in autumn for 5 years. Specific IgE (sIgE) titers to ragweed and mugwort were elevated to 54.1 and 24.9 kU/L, respectively. With regard to the allergen component of pollens, sIgE to Art v 1 (mugwort) and Amb a 1 (ragweed) were elevated to 21.9 and 36.1 kU/L, respectively. Birch sIgE (including Bet v 1 and Bet v 2) was not detected. A 35-year-old male suffered from abdominal pain, skin rashes after eating mango and kiwi. In addition, systemic allergic reaction developed after consumption of tomato and ginseng. He had chronic rhinitis. The sIgE levels to ragweed, mugwort, and tomato were elevated to 0.55, 6.39, and 0.78 kU/L, respectively. The sIgE test results were all negative for Amb a 1, Bet v 1, and Bet v 2 sIgE. Specific IgE levels to Art v 1, Art v 2 sIgE were 3.51 and 4.46 kU/L, respectively. Based on the history and sIgE test results, 2 cases OAS were related to mugwort. We experienced 2 cases of weed pollinosis related to OAS. Culprit foods of OAS can vary depending on their cuisine cultures. (Allergy Asthma Respir Dis 2016:4:458-461)

The safety of endoscopic esophageal procedures under general anesthesia

Go Eun Kim, Duk Kyung Kim, Ji Won Choi, In Sun Chung, Da Woon Jung
2017 Korean Journal of Anesthesiology  
Endoscopic esophageal procedures such as endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) and peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) are increasingly being performed to avoid the considerable morbidity and mortality associated with esophageal surgery. With its wide application as one of the main therapeutic modalities for early gastric cancer, ESD is now accepted as a useful, minimally invasive procedure for the management of early esophageal cancer [1] . Although POEM is a relatively new procedure,
more » ... cal advances have led to its widespread use for Clinical Research Article Background: With the increasing demand for general anesthesia for endoscopic esophageal procedures, anesthesiologists should understand the clinical characteristics of post-procedural complications (PPCs). Methods: We retrospectively investigated the incidence of and risk factors associated with PPCs of endoscopic esophageal procedures performed under general anesthesia from July 2013 to November 2016. The final analysis included 129 patients; 114 who underwent esophageal endoscopic dissection for esophageal tumors and 15 cases of peroral endoscopic myotomy for achalasia. Frank perforation during the procedure was defined as an endoscopically recognizable or clinically detected perforation during the procedures. A multivariable logistic regression analysis was conducted to identify independent risk factors for PPCs. Results: The overall incidence of PPCs was 19.4% (25/129). All of the PPCs were managed successfully with conservative measures. The most common PPC was symptomatic, radiologically documented atelectasis (11/25, 44.0%), followed by esophageal perforation-related PPCs (symptomatic pneumomediastinum or pneumoperitoneum; 9/25, 36.0%). In the multivariable analysis, frank perforation during the procedure was the only independent risk factor for PPCs (odds ratio, 8.470, 95% CI, 2.051-34.974, P = 0.003). Although frank perforation during the procedure occurred in 13 patients, 38.5% (5/13) of them did not develop any clinical sequelae after their procedures. Compared with patients without PPCs, patients who developed PPCs took longer to their first oral intake and had prolonged hospital stays (P = 0.047 and 0.026, respectively). Conclusions: Iatrogenic perforation during endoscopic esophageal procedures under general anesthesia was the only independent risk factor for PPCs; therefore, proactive measures and close follow-up are necessary.

Cytoskeletal alteration modulates cancer cell invasion through RhoA-YAP signaling in stromal fibroblasts

Do Kyeong Kim, Eun Kyoung Kim, Da-Woon Jung, Jin Kim, Cheng-Chia Yu
2019 PLoS ONE  
Cancer-associated fibroblasts(CAFs) participate in carcinogenesis through interaction with cancer cells. This study aimed to investigate the mechanism of cytoskeletal alteration of CAFs and its role in invasion of oral squamous cell carcinoma(OSCC).Immortalized normal fibroblasts(hTERT-hNOFs) co-cultured with OSCC cells showed myofibroblastic and senescent phenotypes like CAFs. Thus, this study substituted hTERT-hNOFs for CAFs. Next, the cytoskeletal alteration and its molecular mechanism were

Furthermore, as a downstream transcriptional factor of RhoA, YAP was mainly localized in the nucleus of hTERT-hNOFs co-cultured with OSCC. Consequently, we examined whether nuclear YAP localization of fibroblasts could influence cancer progression. YAPS127A fibroblasts manifesting nuclear localization of YAP induced cytoskeletal alteration and increased gel contractility and matrix stiffness, and thereby enhances the invasiveness of OSCC cells. In conclusion, the modification of tumor microenvironment, such as cytoskeletal change and matrix remodeling via RhoA-YAP in CAFs, modulates OSCC invasion. These understandings will provide the development of novel approaches for CAFs-based cancer therapy.

2012 Journal of Korea Multimedia Society  
In this paper, We propose Augmented Reality (AR) System for the interaction between user's hand motion and virtual object motion based on computer vision. The previous AR system provides inconvenience to user because the users have to control the marker and the sensor like a tracker. We solved the problem through hand motion and provide the convenience to the user. Also the motion of virtual object using a physical phenomenon gives a reality. The proposed system obtains geometrical information

The system environments like virtual space of moving virtual ball and bricks are made by using the geometrical information and user's hand motion is obtained from the hand's information with extracted feature point through the taping hand. And it registers a virtual plane stably by getting movement of the feature points. The movement of the virtual ball basically is parabolic motion with a parabolic equation. When the collision occurs either the planes or the bricks, we show movement of the virtual ball with ball position and normal vector of plane and the ball position is faulted. So we showed corrected ball position through experiment. and we proved that this system can replaced the marker system to compare to jitter of augmented virtual object and progress speed with it.
