Human Surfactant Protein-A(SP-A) Gene Locus Associated with Mycoplasma pneumoniae Pneumonia in Korean Children
Seung Soo Kim, In Kyu Lee, Jung Ho Ko, Myung Ho Oh, Chong Woo Bae
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(4):376-379.   Published online April 15, 2005
Purpose : Mycoplasama pneumoniae is a leading cause of pneumonia and exacerbates other respiratory conditions such as asthma. Surfactant protein A(SP-A) is involved in surfactant physiology and surfactant structure, and plays a major role in innate host defense and inflammatory processes in the lung. In this study, SP-A mediated mycoplasma cidal activity. The candidate-gene approach was used to study the...
Association between the Human Surfactant Protein-A(SP-A) Gene Locus and Respiratory Distress Syndrome in Korean Neonates
Jae Hoon Choe, Myung Ho Oh, Jung Ho Ko, Sun Young Kim, In Kyu Lee, Chong Woo Bae
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(7):735-739.   Published online July 15, 2004
Purpose : Respiratory distress syndrome(RDS) is caused by a deficiency of pulmonary surfactant, which is a lipoprotein complex. Both low levels of surfactant protein A(SP-A) and SP-A alleles have been associated with RDS. However, the genes underlying susceptibility to RDS are insufficiently known. The candidate-gene approach was used to study the association between the SP-A gene locus and RDS in...
Allele Distribution and Frequency of Human Surfactant Protein-A2 in Korean Neonates
Nyeon Cheon Kim, Hee Chul Yoon, Jung Su Suk, Jung Ho Ko, Ook Joon Yoo, In Kyu Lee, Myung Ho Oh, Chong Woo Bae
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(4):340-344.   Published online April 15, 2003
Purpose : We evaluated allele frequencies and distribution of surfactant protein A2(SP-A2) in Korean neonates in order to estimate the prevalence of RDS, to find out new SP-A alleles, and to establish new steroid therapy. Methods : Genomic DNA was extracted from 71 neonates and served as a template in PCR for genotype analysis. SP-A gene-specific amplications and gene-specific allele determinations...
Allele Distribution and Frequency of Human Surfactant Protein-A1 in Korean Neonates
Kyung Shin Lee, Young Hee Kim, Jung Su Suk, Jung Ho Ko, Ook Joon Yoo, In Kyu Lee, Myung Ho Oh, Chong Woo Bae
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(12):1497-1502.   Published online December 15, 2002
Purpose : We evaluated allele frequencies and distribution of surfactant protein A1(SP-A1) in Korean neonates in order to estimate prevalence of RDS to find out new SP-A alleles, and to establish new steroid therapy. Methods : Genomic DNA was extracted from 100 neonates and served as a template in PCR for genotype analysis. SP-A gene-specific amplications and gene-specific allele determinations were...
