We have isolated and characterized the gene encoding a Drosophila melanogaster homolog of Caenorhabditis elegans UNC-51 (uncoordinated movement-51): Pegarn. Developmental Northern blot shows the Pegarn gene is expressed at all stages of development. The protein is detected throughout the Drosophila third instar larval central nervous system (CNS) in axons(More)
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most aggressive malignant brain tumor. Since differentiation can attenuate or halt the growth of tumor cells, an image-based phenotypic screening was performed to find out drugs inducing morphological differentiation of GBMs. Bexarotene, a selective retinoid X receptor agonist, showed strong inhibition of neurospheroidal(More)
c-Met signaling has been implicated in oncogenesis especially in cells with c-met gene amplification. Since 20 % of gastric cancer patients show high level of c-Met expression, c-Met has been identified as a good candidate for targeted therapy in gastric cancer. Herein, we report our newly synthesized c-Met inhibitor by showing its efficacy both in vitro(More)
