BACKGROUND & AIMS Enhanced motility of cancer cells by remodeling of the actin cytoskeleton seems crucial in the process of cancer invasion and metastasis. We previously identified an actin-binding protein, actinin-4, as a new biomarker of cancer invasion and an indicator of prognosis for patients with breast cancer. However, its involvement in the(More)
We recently established a mouse model of peritoneal dissemination of human gastric carcinoma, including the formation of ascites, by orthotopic transplantation of cultured gastric carcinoma cells. To clarify the processes of expansion of the tumors in this model, nude mice were sacrificed and autopsied at different points of time after the orthotopic(More)
The hyper-modular printer control project at PARC has proven that a tightly integrated model-based planning and control framework can effectively control a complex physical system. Recently, we have successfully applied this framework to another application: planning for the Material Control System (MCS) of Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) manufacturing plant(More)
In this study, two conversion technologies--methanol synthesis and ethanol fermentation--were compared and CO(2) mitigation effect was estimated. The biomethanol production process was revealed as being preferable to the bioethanol process in terms of thermal efficiency, carbon conversion and environmental burden except electrical energy consumption. When(More)
Hydrocarbons are easily extracted by organic solvents such as n-decane from wet samples of Botryococcus braunii by thermal pretreatment at 90 °C even after being cooled to room temperature. However, hydrocarbon recoveries are not as readily achieved at room temperature from samples pretreated at temperatures lower than 80 °C. This suggests that there is the(More)
