HDAC3 acts as a negative regulator of angiogenesis

Deokbum Park, Hyunmi Park, Youngmi Kim, Hyuna Kim, Dooil Jeoung
2014 BMB Reports  
Histone deacetylase-3 (HDAC3) is involved in cellular proliferation, apoptosis and transcriptional repression. However, the role of HDAC3 in angiogenesis remains unknown. HDAC3 negatively regulated the expression of angiogenic factors, such as VEGF and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1). HDAC3 showed binding to promoter sequences of PAI-1. HDAC3 activity was necessary for the expression regulation of PAI-1 by HDAC3. VEGF decreased the expression of HDAC3, and the down-regulation of HDAC3

Youngshin Han, Youngmi Lee, Haeryun Park, Sunyoung Park, Kyunghee Song
2015 Nutrition Research and Practice  
The prevalence of atopic dermatitis in infants is increasing worldwide. However, the nutrient intake status of infants with atopic dermatitis has not been studied properly. This study was conducted to compare the nutrient intake status of infants in the weaning period with atopic dermatitis by feeding type. Feeding types, nutrient intake status and growth status of 98 infants with atopic dermatitis from age 6 to 12 months were investigated. Feeding types were surveyed using questionnaires, and

The result showed that breastfed infants consumed less energy and 13 nutrients compared to formula-fed or mixed-fed infants (p < 0.001). The breastfed group showed a significantly lower intake rate to the Dietary Reference Intakes for Koreans than the other two groups (p < 0.001). In addition, they consumed less than 75% of the recommended intakes in all nutrients, except for protein and vitamin A, and in particular, iron intake was very low, showing just 18.7% of the recommended intake. There was no significant difference in growth by feeding type, but breastfed infants showed a significantly higher rate of iron deficiency anemia (p < 0.001). Continuous management programs should be prepared for breastfed infants with atopic dermatitis, who are in a period when rapid growth takes place and proper nutrient intake is essential.

Youngmi Kim, Sangkyung Eom, Deokbum Park, Hyuna Kim, Dooil Jeoung
2015 Frontiers in Immunology  
We previously reported the anti-allergic effect of high molecular weight form of hyaluronic acid (HMW-HA). In doing so, HA targets CD44 and inhibits FcεRI signaling and cross-talk between epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and FcεRI. We previously reported the role of histone deacetylases (HDACs) in allergic inflammation and allergic inflammationpromoted enhanced tumorigenic potential.

YouTube as a Source of Information and Education on Hysterectomy

Kyong-No Lee, Ga-Hyun Son, Sung-Ho Park, Youngmi Kim, Sung Taek Park
2020 Journal of Korean medical science  
Globally, YouTube is one of the most popular websites, and the content is not restricted to entertainment. The purpose of this study was to assess the quality of information in YouTube videos pertaining to hysterectomy. We explored YouTube using the search terms "hysterectomy" and "remove uterus." The videos that appeared were sorted using the filter "sort by view count." Of the initial 100 videos, the top 50 videos for each search term were included for review, as determined by the "relevance"
more » ... filter based on YouTube's algorithm. After excluding 34 videos for various reasons, 66 were included in the final analysis. Each video rated as "useful" was further analyzed for reliability and completeness of information; a set of pre-determined criteria were modified from a previous study and used to grade the quality of videos. The top 66 videos on hysterectomy had a total of 4,679,118 views. Based on authorship, the videos were categorized as follows: videos uploaded by patients, 37%; academic videos, 35%; videos uploaded by physicians, 13%; commercial videos, 4%; and videos uploaded by non-physicians, 2%. The type of content was also categorized: 50% of the videos recorded personal experiences, 23% recorded surgical techniques, 21% involved explanations of the surgery, and 4% were commercial videos. The majority of the videos made by patients were negatively biased toward hysterectomy surgery (71.72%), while the majority of those made by academics or physicians were surgical educational videos for doctors, not patients. YouTube is currently not an appropriate source for patients to gain information on hysterectomy. Physicians should be aware of the limitations and provide up-to-date and peer-reviewed content on the website.

A Computational Approach to Detect CNVs Using High-throughput Sequencing

Myungjin Moon, Jaegyoon Ahn, Youngmi Yoon, Chihyun Park, Sanghyun Park, Jeehee Yoon
2009 2009 Ninth IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and BioEngineering  
Copy-Number Variations (CNVs) can be defined as gains or losses that are greater than 1kbs of genomic DNA among phenotypically normal individuals. CNVs detected by microarray based approach are limited to medium or large sized ones because of its low resolution. Here we propose a novel approach to detect CNVs by aligning the short reads obtained by high-throughput sequencer to the previously assembled human genome sequence, and analyzing the distribution of the aligned reads. Application of our

2011 Computer applications in the biosciences : CABIOS  
Motivation: Diagnosis and prognosis of cancer and understanding oncogenesis within the context of biological pathways is one of the most important research areas in bioinformatics. Recently, there have been several attempts to integrate interactome and transcriptome data to identify subnetworks that provide limited interpretations of known and candidate cancer genes, as well as increase classification accuracy. However, these studies provide little information about the detailed roles of

Results: To provide more information to the network, we constructed the network by incorporating genetic interactions and manually curated gene regulations to the protein interaction network. To make our newly constructed network cancer specific, we identified edges where two genes show different expression patterns between cancer and normal phenotypes. We showed that the integration of various datasets increased classification accuracy, which suggests that our network is more complete than a network based solely on protein interactions. We also showed that our network contains significantly more known cancer-related genes than other feature selection algorithms. Through observations of some examples of cancer-specific subnetworks, we were able to predict more detailed and interpretable roles of oncogenes and other cancer candidate genes in the prostate cancer cells.

Drug voyager: a computational platform for exploring unintended drug action

Min Oh, Jaegyoon Ahn, Taekeon Lee, Giup Jang, Chihyun Park, Youngmi Yoon
2017 BMC Bioinformatics  
The dominant paradigm in understanding drug action focuses on the intended therapeutic effects and frequent adverse reactions. However, this approach may limit opportunities to grasp unintended drug actions, which can open up channels to repurpose existing drugs and identify rare adverse drug reactions. Advances in systems biology can be exploited to comprehensively understand pharmacodynamic actions, although proper frameworks to represent drug actions are still lacking. Results: We suggest a
more » ... ovel platform to construct a drug-specific pathway in which a molecular-level mechanism of action is formulated based on pharmacologic, pharmacogenomic, transcriptomic, and phenotypic data related to drug response ( In this platform, an adoption of three conceptual levels imitating drug perturbation allows these pathways to be realistically rendered in comparison to those of other models. Furthermore, we propose a new method that exploits functional features of the drug-specific pathways to predict new indications as well as adverse reactions. For therapeutic uses, our predictions significantly overlapped with clinical trials and an up-to-date drug-disease association database. Also, our method outperforms existing methods with regard to classification of active compounds for cancers. For adverse reactions, our predictions were significantly enriched in an independent database derived from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Adverse Event Reporting System and meaningfully cover an Adverse Reaction Database provided by Health Canada. Lastly, we discuss several predictions for both therapeutic indications and side-effects through the published literature. Conclusions: Our study addresses how we can computationally represent drug-signaling pathways to understand unintended drug actions and to facilitate drug discovery and screening.

Noise-robust algorithm for identifying functionally associated biclusters from gene expression data☆

Jaegyoon Ahn, Youngmi Yoon, Sanghyun Park
2011 Information Sciences  
Biclusters are subsets of genes that exhibit similar behavior over a set of conditions. A biclustering algorithm is a useful tool for uncovering groups of genes involved in the same cellular processes and groups of conditions under which these processes take place. In this paper, we propose a polynomial time algorithm to identify functionally highly correlated biclusters. Our algorithm identifies (1) gene sets that simultaneously exhibit additive, multiplicative, and combined patterns and allow

We validate the level of functional association in our method by using the GO database, protein-protein interactions and KEGG pathways.
