Regulation of the HIF-1α stability by histone deacetylases

Se-Hee Kim, Joo-Won Jeong, Jeong Park, Ji-Won Lee, Ji Seo, Bo-Kyung Jung, Moon-Kyoung Bae, Kyu-Won Kim
2007 Oncology Reports  
Histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDACIs) are currently in clinical trials partly due to their potent antiangiogenic effects. However, the detailed mechanism of their action is unclear. Here, we observed that several HDACIs (TSA, SB, Apicidin, and VPA) dramatically decreased HIF-1· protein level and transcriptional activity of HIF-1 in human and mouse tumor cell lines. Furthermore, class I HDACs, HDAC1 and 3 enhanced HIF-1· stability and HIF-1 transactivation function in hypoxic conditions. In

Collectively, these results suggest that HDAC1 and 3 are considered as a positive regulator of HIF-1· stability via direct interaction and may play an important role in HIF-1-induced tumor angiogenesis.

Seo Young Park, Jee Young Park, Ji Won Park, Won Hwa Kim, Ji Young Park, Hye Jung Kim
2022 Ultrasonography  
Hyperechoic lesions of the breast encompass a wide range of conditions that are occasionally encountered during breast ultrasonography. Although typical hyperechoic lesions with a distinct fat component on imaging are well known, some hyperechoic lesions are diagnosed as unexpected pathology, making the radiology-pathology correlation difficult. Therefore, understanding the pathology of these lesions and how it correlates with imaging findings can help radiologists accurately diagnose and

Sang Won Seo, Ha Young Shin, Seo Hyun Kim, Sang Won Han, Kyung Yul Lee, Seung Min Kim, Ji Hoe Heo
2004 Archives of Neurology  
The nucleus prepositus hypoglossi (NPH) is known to be a neural integrator of horizontal eye movements. Although the role of the human NPH is not well known, it may also function in postural balance, in view of its anatomic connections with the vestibular nuclei and vestibulocerebellum and of lesion studies in experimental animals. Objective: To show that the human NPH contributes to vestibular function in addition to eye movement control. Design: Case series. Setting: University hospital.

Results: The NPH was affected at the lower pontine level in 2 patients and at the upper medullary level in 4. In addition to gaze-evoked nystagmus, all patients had vertigo, vomiting, and postural ataxia, suggesting vestibular dysfunction. The patients typically fell contralaterally or bilaterally to the lesion side. Conclusion: The NPH serves a vestibular function in addition to its oculomotor control function.

Jee Won Kim, Ji Mi Moon, Eun-Joo Kang, Yoon Ji Choi, Jung Sun Kim, Jong Gwon Choi, Hee Yeon Seo, Hwa Jung Sung, Chul Won Choi, Byung Soo Kim, Jun Suk Kim, Woo-Keun Seo
2009 The Korean Journal of Hematology  
Reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy syndrome (RPLS) is a distinctive clinicoradiological entity that's characterized by headache, confusion, seizure and frequent visual disturbances. It is associated with certain neuro-radiological findings, and predominantly white matter abnormalities of the parieto-occipital lobes. RPLS has been identified mostly in patients with malignant hypertension, pre-eclampsia and renal insufficiency and in those patients who are using immunosuppressive agents or

A 49-year-old woman presented with abrupt mental changes and visual disturbances five days after the administration of a chemotherapeutic agent. MRI showed hyper-intense signals on the magnetic resonance (MR) diffusion images in the bilateral temporal, parietal and occipital lobes. The clinical manifestations completely resolved after one week of treatment that consisted of blood pressure control, a negative intake-output balance and the best supportive care. These radiological changes and the reversible clinical manifestations were consistent with RPLS. (Korean J Hematol 2009;44:177-181.)

Ji-Hong Bae, Jong-Chan Won, Won-Bin Lim, Byeong-Joo Kim, Ju-Hong Lee, Jin-Gyu Min, Min-Ji Seo, Young-Hyun Mo, Pil-Ho Huh
2021 Materials  
Polyurethane pressure-sensitive adhesives (PU-PSAs) with satisfactory tack, cohesion, and removability were newly developed through the synthetic process by reacting methylene diisocyanate, poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG), and a 1,4-butanediol chain extender based on the different HDI/HDI trimer ratios. The sticking properties of PU-PSAs depended on both the HDI/HDI trimer ratio and crosslinking-agent composition in the formulation. The molecular weight (MW) dependence of adhesion in PU-PSA was

The differences in the crosslinking-density significantly affected the cohesion, adhesion, and tack in PU-PSA. The formulation of 50 wt.% 600PEG and 50 wt.% crosslinking-agent and an HDI/HDI trimer ratio of 1.0 led to the optimal balance between the adhesion and cohesion properties owing to the sufficient tack, high 180-peel strength, and good cohesion.

2008 Microporous and Mesoporous Materials  
The mesopores of mesoporous materials prepared with the anionic surfactant N-lauroyl-L-glutamic monosodium salt (AS) were enlarged by adding the cationic surfactant hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide (CS) to the micelles of AS at pH 9. The f-potential of the micelles in the synthetic mixtures and the physical state of the assembled surfactants in the mesopores were examined by a light scattering spectrophotometer, 1 H 13 C CP-MAS NMR and DSC. The average pore diameters of the mesopores

Won-Jun Jang, Jae Yoon Choi, Byoungduck Park, Ji Hae Seo, Young Ho Seo, Sangkil Lee, Chul-Ho Jeong, Sooyeun Lee
2019 Molecules  
Metabolomics is a powerful tool used to understand comprehensive changes in the metabolic response and to study the phenotype of an organism by instrumental analysis. It most commonly involves mass spectrometry followed by data mining and metabolite assignment. For the last few decades, hair has been used as a valuable analytical sample to investigate retrospective xenobiotic exposure as it provides a wider window of detection than other biological samples such as saliva, plasma, and urine.

Therefore, it has great potential as a metabolomics sample to monitor chronic diseases, including drug addiction or abnormal conditions. In the current review, the latest applications of hair metabolomics in animal studies and clinical settings are highlighted. For this purpose, we review and discuss the characteristics of hair as a metabolomics sample, the analytical techniques employed in hair metabolomics and the consequence of hair metabolome alterations in recent studies. Through this, the value of hair as an alternative biological sample in metabolomics is highlighted.

2018 Crystals  
We report the crystal structure and bioinformatic analysis of SF173, a functionally uncharacterized protein from the human enteropathogenic bacteria Shigella flexneri. The structure shows a tightly interlinked dimer formed by adimeric core comprising α2 and α3 helices from both subunits and swapping the N-terminal α1 helix of each monomer. Structural inspection and genomic analysis results suggest that the SF173 might play its putative function by binding to SF172, the partially overlapped

2017 Medicine  
There has been recent progress in intraoperative fluid therapy. However, little is known about intraoperative fluid therapy in laparoscopic surgery. The purpose of this study is to determine whether there are differences in the basal fluid requirements during surgery between laparotomy and laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy. This retrospective cohort study analyzed the electronic medical records of 253 patients who underwent distal pancreatectomy via either laparotomy (73 patients) or

The volume of intraoperative fluid administered, postoperative complications, length of hospital stay, and readmission rate were evaluated. The total volume of fluids was calculated as the sum of the volume of crystalloid plus the volume of colloid multiplied by 1.5 or 2.0. Patients who had laparotomy were older and had higher American Society of Anesthesiologists classes. Anesthesia time was longer and estimated blood loss was larger in laparotomy. More colloid (1.8 mL/kg per h vs. 1.2 mL/kg per h, P < .001) and more total calculated fluid (1.5 times: 11.7 mL/kg per h vs. 10.6 mL/kg per h, P = .002; 2.0 times: 12.6 mL/kg per h vs. 11.2 mL/kg per h, P = .001) were infused in laparotomy. Crystalloid (9.0 mL/kg per h vs. 8.9 mL/kg per h, P = .203) did not show significant difference. Postoperative complications were more frequent (63% vs. 45%, P = .008), the hospital stay was longer (18 days vs. 13.4 days, P < .001), and readmission rate was higher (15% vs. 5.6%, P = .02) in laparotomy. By logistic regression analysis, we could find that operation type (laparotomy vs. laparoscopy, odds ratio 1.900, 95% confidence interval 1.072-3.368) and operation time (P = .004) had effect on complications. In patients undergoing distal pancreatectomy, basal fluid requirements were larger in laparotomy compared with laparoscopy. Operation time and estimated blood loss had effects on fluid administration. Postoperative complications were more frequent in laparotomy but we could not find relationships with infused colloid or total calculated fluid volumes. Operation type (laparotomy vs. laparoscopy) and operation time were the only related factors to postoperative complications. Abbreviations: ASA = American Society of Anesthesiologists, EBL = estimated blood loss, Hb = hemoglobin, HES = hydroxyethyl starch, IV = intravenous, r s = Spearman correlation coefficient.
