We have previously established immortalized cells (HCF) from cementifying fibroma of the jaw bone. Here, we found that the receptor for hyaluronan (HA)-mediated motility (RHAMM) and epiregulin, a ligand for the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), were highly expressed in HCF cells in comparison with osteoblasts by conducting a microarray analysis. The(More)
p63 is a member of the p53 family and regulates crucial events in the formation of epithelial structures, but the role of p63 in tumor is unclear. We found that Snail-induced epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is accompanied by down-regulation of p63 in human squamous cell carcinomas (SCC). DeltaNp63alpha is the predominantly expressed p63 isoform(More)
The receptor for advanced glycation end-products (RAGE) is a newly recognized factor regulating cancer cell invasion and metastasis. This study investigated the expression of RAGE in gastric carcinomas and its association with invasion and metastasis. Of eight gastric cancer cell lines examined, seven constitutively expressed RAGE messenger ribonucleic acid(More)
Aberrant methylation of CpG islands within promoter regions is associated with transcriptional inactivation of various tumor suppressor genes in neoplasms. Recently, O(6)-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase, MGMT, was shown to be hypermethylated in certain carcinomas, resulting in loss of MGMT protein. We studied DNA methylation of CpG islands of the MGMT(More)
TPX2 is a microtubule-associated protein and is required for microtubule formation at kinetochores in mammalian cells. The purpose of this study was to clarify the expression of TPX2 mRNA and correlation between TPX2 and clinicopathological factors in salivary gland carcinomas. The expression of TPX2 mRNA was investigated in 20 human salivary gland(More)
Stromal cell-derived factor 1alpha (SDF-1alpha) and its receptor CXCR4 have been implicated in the tumorigenesis, proliferation, and lymph node metastasis of cancer. Here, we report that highly invasive squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) cells with a spindle cell morphology show a strong expression of both SDF-1alpha and CXCR4. CXCR4 expression and cell(More)
We report an unusual case of pleomorphic adenoma with extensive bone formation, occurring in the parotid gland of a 58-year-old Japanese man. The tumor was a well-circumscribed mass that measured 20 x 20 x 15 mm and contained extensive bone formation. Histologically, most of the tumor was composed of bone and chondroid tissues. The bone formation with a(More)
The receptor for hyaluronan (HA)-mediated motility (RHAMM) is a HA-binding protein located in the cytoskeleton and centrosome. RHAMM has multiple functions that manifest with different cellular localizations, for example, modulation of growth factor receptor, regulation of cell signaling pathways, and mitotic spindle assembly. In addition, its increased(More)
We examined the expression of Centromere protein H (CENP-H) mRNA in 38 oral squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs), 2 epithelial dysplasias and 5 normal gingivae using the real-time quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). The mean expression level of CENP-H mRNA was higher in oral SCCs (0.11+/-0.08) than epithelial dysplasias(More)
Receptor for hyaluronan-mediated motility (RHAMM) has previously been characterized as a cell surface receptor for hyaluronan and a microtubule-associated intracellular hyaluronan binding protein. We examined the expression of RHAMM mRNA in 43 oral squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) and 7 normal gingivae by real-time RT-PCR. The expression level of RHAMM mRNA(More)
