Aurora-A encodes a cell cycle regulated serine/threonine kinase that has essential functions for centrosome maturation and chromosome segregation. Aurora-A is amplified and overexpressed in various human carcinomas and is suggested to be a potential oncogene. To clarify the potential role of Aurora-A in human gastric carcinoma, we examined the amplification(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the concentration of oleanolic acids (OA) in pomace, a winemaking byproduct, and its influence on the levels of plasma lipids in rats fed a high-fat diet and on hepatic gene expression using DNA microarray analysis in vivo. HPLC analyses of pomace ethanol extract (PEE) revealed a high amount of OA ranging from 4 to 11(More)

Gastrointestinal mesenchymal tumors (GIMTs) are the most common mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract. RCAS1 (receptor-binding cancer antigen expressed on SiSo cells) is a cancer cell-surface antigen and has been identified as a prognostic factor in several cancer types. It is thought that tumor cells escape immune attack by expressing RCAS1,(More)
