Members of the YABBY gene family have a general role that promotes abaxial cell fate in a model eudicot, Arabidopsis thaliana. To understand the function of YABBY genes in monocots, we have isolated all YABBY genes in Oryza sativa (rice), and revealed the spatial and temporal expression pattern of one of these genes, OsYABBY1. In rice, eight YABBY genes(More)
BACKGROUND The presence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with an increased risk of restenosis and major adverse cardiac events (MACEs) after coronary interventions, especially in patients on hemodialysis (HD). The aim of this study was to assess the impact of varying degrees of renal impairment on angiographic and 2-year clinical outcomes after(More)
The multifunctional protein BAG-1 binds to molecular chaperones Hsc70/Hsp70 and regulates their activity. While a role for BAG-1 in regulating Hsc70 chaperone activity is firmly established in vitro, physiological roles of this regulation remain obscure. Here we show that BAG-1 is highly expressed in gastrointestinal epithelial cells and accumulates at the(More)
{Background and Objective} Coronary angiography (CAG) has been validated as the standard method for the follow-up of the coronary arterial lesions (CAL) due to Kawasaki disease, which start with aneurysms and progress to stenotic lesions frequently. However, patients with CAL need to be studied repeatedly throughout the life, and CAG is associated with(More)
