Leukemia Cutis in Acute Myelomonocytic Leukemia: Infiltration to Minor Traumas and Scars
We describe a patient with acute myelomonocytic leukemia who demonstrated leukemic cell infiltration to scratched wounds and scars from trauma. A 65‐year‐old Japanese woman developed low grade fever,Expand
Comparison of methods to evaluate acute rejection in heterotopic heart transplantation in rats.
We compared palpation and electrocardiograms (ECG) as methods of evaluation of acute rejections, and also studied the mode of expression of rejection from histological findings by means of a cervicalExpand
Beta-adrenergic stimulation induces intracellular Ca++ increase in human epidermal keratinocytes.
Intracellular Ca++ ([Ca++]i) is one of the most important second messengers of extracellular signals that induce cellular responses. In epidermal keratinocytes, both extracellular and intracellularExpand
An Association of Acanthosis Nigricans and Crouzon Syndrome
An 11‐year‐old Japanese female having acanthosis nigricans associated with Crouzon syndrome is reported. Crouzon syndrome is a craniostenotic craniofacial malformation associated with prematureExpand
Differentiation‐associated localization of small prolne‐rich rotein in normal and diseased human skin
Summary The expression of SPRR (small proline‐rich protein) was investigated in normal human skin and in diseased skin from patients with psoriasis, squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell epithelioma.Expand
1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3 and a new analogue, 22-oxacalcitriol, modulate proliferation and interleukin-8 secretion of normal human keratinocytes.
Vitamin D3 is a new therapeutic agent for psoriasis. Hyperproliferation of epidermis and over-secretion of IL-8 by keratinocytes are the characteristic features of psoriasis. The present study wasExpand
Substance P induces intracellular calcium increase and translocation of protein kinase C in epidermis
Substance P is a neuropeptide present in, and released from, peripheral C nerve endings. The presence of substance P‐positive nerve fibres in the epidermis has been reported. We investigated theExpand
Herpesvirus‐like DNA sequences in classic Kaposi's sarcoma and angiosarcoma in Japan

Dermal dendrocyte hamartoma with stubby white hair: a novel connective tissue hamartoma of infancy.
A previously undescribed hamartoma with stubby white hair was observed in a 1-week-old girl. A deep red, soft nodule with fine wrinkles was present on the back. White bizarre short thick hairs withExpand
Membrane expression of annexin I is enhanced by calcium and TPA in cultured human keratinocytes
Abstract  Annexin I plays an important role in the process of keratinization as a component of the cornified envelope. To elucidate the function of annexin I in keratinization, we investigated theExpand
