Protein Kinase D (PKD) 1, 2, and 3 are members of the PKD family. PKDs influence many cellular processes, including cell polarity, structure of the Golgi, polarized transport from the Golgi to the basolateral plasma membrane, and actin polymerization. However, the role of the PKD family in cell polarity has not yet been elucidated in vivo. Here, we show(More)
BIG1, an activator protein of the small GTPase, Arf, and encoded by the Arfgef1 gene, is one of candidate genes for epileptic encephalopathy. To know the involvement of BIG1 in epileptic encephalopathy, we analyzed BIG1-deficient mice and found that BIG1 regulates neurite outgrowth and brain development in vitro and in vivo. The loss of BIG1 decreased the(More)
Mammalian protein kinase D (PKD) isoforms have been proposed to regulate diverse biological processes, including the establishment and maintenance of neuronal polarity. To investigate the function of PKD in neuronal polarization in vivo, we generated PKD knockout (KO) mice. Here, we show that the brain, particularly the hippocampus, of both PKD1 KO and PKD2(More)
BACKGROUND Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) triggers exacerbation of atopic dermatitis (AD) and causes chronic inflammation through the action of various proteins such as staphylococcal enterotoxin B (SEB). SEB has a role in activating interleukin (IL)-18, an important regulator of interferon (IFN)-γ and IL-4, in regards to a therapeutic strategy. (More)
