Short-term fasting (48 hours) was shown to be effective in protecting normal cells and mice but not cancer cells against high dose chemotherapy, termed Differential Stress Resistance (DSR), but the feasibility and effect of fasting in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy is unknown. Here we describe 10 cases in which patients diagnosed with a variety of(More)
BACKGROUND Glioma, including anaplastic astrocytoma and glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) are among the most commonly diagnosed malignant adult brain tumors. GBM is a highly invasive and angiogenic tumor, resulting in a 12 to 15 months median survival. The treatment of GBM is multimodal and includes surgical resection, followed by adjuvant radio-and(More)
Aging is influenced by endocrine pathways including the growth hormone/insulin-like growth factor-1 (GH/IGF) axis. Mitochondrial function has also been linked to the aging process, but the relevant mitochondrial signals mediating the effects of mitochondria are poorly understood. Humanin is a novel signaling peptide that acts as a potent regulator of(More)
Bacterial motility is governed by the flhDC master operon that is under the control of factors like OmpR, LrhA, HdfR, and H-NS. Previously, derivatives of the wild-type MG1655 strain of E. coli K-12 with enhanced motility were found to contain insertion sequences (ISs) in the regulatory region of the flhDC operon. Here, we report that not only integrations(More)
Cloud computing has made it possible for private companies to make rapid changes in their computing environments. However, in the public sector, security issues hinder institutions from adopting cloud computing. To solve these security challenges, in this paper, we propose a methodology for information security management, which quantitatively classifies(More)
Glyoxal (GO) and methylglyoxal (MG) are reactive carbonyl compounds that are accumulated in vivo through various pathways. They are presumably detoxified through multiple pathways including glutathione (GSH)-dependent/independent glyoxalase systems and NAD(P)H dependent reductases. Previously, we reported an involvement of aldo-ketoreductases (AKRs) in MG(More)

Mitochondria are key players in aging and in the pathogenesis of age-related diseases. Recent mitochondrial transcriptome analyses revealed the existence of multiple small mRNAs transcribed from mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). Humanin (HN), a peptide encoded in the mtDNA 16S ribosomal RNA region, is a neuroprotective factor. An in silico search revealed six(More)
Caloric restriction is the most effective and reproducible dietary intervention known to regulate aging and increase the healthy lifespan in various model organisms, ranging from the unicellular yeast to worms, flies, rodents, and primates. However, caloric restriction, which in most cases entails a 20-40% reduction of food consumption relative to normal(More)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa SG17M is an environmental isolate recovered from river water in the city of Mulheim, Germany. SG17M belongs to clone C, which is distributed worldwide. This is the first clone C strain whose genome sequence has been determined.
Previously, we observed butanal/propanal sensitivity of Escherichia coli K-12 when cells overexpress YqhD protein, a NADPH dependent aldehyde reductase, possibly due to an accumulation of butanol/propanol in vivo as the reaction products. Based on this finding, we developed a suicidal vector-cloning system derived from pUC19, in which lacZ was substituted(More)
