Cancer-associated retinopathy (CAR) is a rare form of retinal degeneration and also one of the paraneoplastic neurologic disorders. Sera of CAR patients usually contain high titers of antibodies against retinal proteins, and CAR is believed to be an autoimmune disease. Using serum from a CAR patient as a molecular probe, a homologue of the polypyrimidine(More)
PTB-like protein (PTBLP) is a new homologue of pyrimidine tract binding protein (PTB), and has been cloned as a possible autoantigen in cancer-associated retinopathy. PTBLP has two functional domains, the nuclear localization signal and the RNA recognition motifs (RRMs). Full-length PTBLP (PTBLP-L) has four RRMs, and its alternative splicing product(More)
The histopathological features are reported of surgically excised specimens from five patients with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy, which had been diagnosed by indocyanine green angiography. On stereomicroscopy, four of the five cases demonstrated large choroidal arterioles with an inner elastic layer. Disruption of the inner elastic layer and(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to elucidate gene expression and immunolocalization of heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor (HB-EGF) and human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER) family in the human ovary during luteal growth and regression. METHODS Ovaries obtained from pre-menopausal women were used for(More)
PURPOSE To report characteristics of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) of large vascular networks that expand across the retinal vascular arcade. METHODS Among 60 consecutive eyes diagnosed as having PCV by fluorescein and indocyanine green (ICG) angiography, 12 eyes (9 patients) showed large lesions. The clinical and angiographic features of these(More)
Human homologue of polypyrimidine tract binding protein (PTB), a possible autoantigen for cancer-associated retinopathy (CAR), was isolated from a human retinal cDNA library. This homologue, named PTB-like protein (PTBLP), encodes a 532 amino acid residue and has a 75% homology to the human PTB. The human PTBLP had four RNA recognition motifs (RRMs) and had(More)
Comparative immunostaining with antibodies against gastric mucin and p53 was performed on 6 cases of minimal deviation adenocarcinoma (MDA) of the uterine cervix. The MDAs consisted of predominant areas of glands lined by extremely well-differentiated tall columnar epithelial cells with little cytological atypia and minor foci of less well-differentiated(More)
