MicroRNA-9 Regulates Neurogenesis in Mouse Telencephalon by Targeting Multiple Transcription Factors
microRNA-9-2 and microRNA-9-3 double-mutant mice demonstrate that microRNA-9 (miR-9) controls neural progenitor proliferation and differentiation in the developing telencephalon by regulating theExpand
MicroRNA-9 Modulates Cajal–Retzius Cell Differentiation by Suppressing Foxg1 Expression in Mouse Medial Pallium
Vertebrate brain hosts a diverse collection of microRNAs, but little is known about their functions in vivo. Here we propose that mouse microRNA-9 (miR-9) targets Foxg1 mRNAs for proper generation ofExpand
A novel antibody for human induced pluripotent stem cells and embryonic stem cells recognizes a type of keratan sulfate lacking oversulfated structures.
We have generated a monoclonal antibody (R-10G) specific to human induced pluripotent stem (hiPS)/embryonic stem (hES) cells by using hiPS cells (Tic) as an antigen, followed by differentialExpand
Binding specificity of R-10G and TRA-1-60/81, and substrate specificity of keratanase II studied with chemically synthesized oligosaccharides
Recently, we established a mouse monoclonal antibody specific to hiPS/ hES cells, R-10G, which recognizes a type of keratan sulfate. Keratan sulfates (KS) comprise a family of glycosaminoglycansExpand
A Cytotoxic Antibody Recognizing Lacto-N-fucopentaose I (LNFP I) on Human Induced Pluripotent Stem (hiPS) Cells*
Background: Carbohydrate epitopes are often used as markers for characterization of hiPS cells. Results: A mouse IgG1 antibody (R-17F) was raised using hiPS cells as an antigen. Conclusion: R-17FExpand
GlycoEpitope: A Database of Carbohydrate Epitopes and Antibodies
Recently, the involvement of carbohydrate chains in life sciences has been extended to diverse functions as cell to cell recognition, communication in neuronal tissues and immune systems, pathogenExpand
GlycoEpitope: A Database for Carbohydrate Antigen and Antibody
Glycan research has increasingly spread to many fields in the life sciences. Glycans are carbohydrate sugar chains, which are found in a wide variety of cell types and are recognized by variousExpand
Characterization of glycoproteins expressing the blood group H type 1 epitope on human induced pluripotent stem (hiPS) cells
Recently, we established two mouse monoclonal antibodies (R-10G and R-17F). The R-17F antibody (IgG1 subtype) exhibited a strong cytotoxic effect on hiPS/ES cells. The R-17F antigen isolated from aExpand
