The aim of this study was to establish a novel adenovirus-based gene therapy system targeting astrocytoma. For this purpose, the Cre recombinase (Cre)/loxP system together with the astrocytoma-specific promoter for GFAP were used. We constructed an adenovirus (Ad) vector that expressed Cre under the control of the GFAP promoter (AxGFAPNCre), as well as(More)
We scrutinized the applicability and efficacy of Sendai virus (SeV) vectors expressing either LacZ or human insulin-like growth factor-I (hIGF-I) in gene transfer into skeletal muscle. Seven days after the intramuscular injection of LacZ/SeV X-gal labeled myofibers were demonstrated in rat anterior tibialis muscle with/without bupivacaine treatment and the(More)
Cyclin G1 (CG1) was identified as a p53-transactivated target gene, and yet its physiological and pathological roles have been unclear. Here, we demonstrate that CG1 is translocated from cytoplasm to the nuclei of neurons in response to variety of injuries. In the normal matured rodent brain, CG1 immunoreactivity was hardly observed; however, some brain(More)
