Although increasing evidence supports the protective role of inhibitor of differentiation and DNA binding-1 (Id-1) against anticancer drug-induced apoptosis, the underlying molecular mechanisms seem to vary depending on the tumor system. Here, we examined the direct role of Id-1 in MCF-7 breast cancer cells by ectopically overexpressing Id-1 under(More)
Mel-18, a polycomb group (PcG) protein, has been suggested as a tumor suppressor in human breast cancer. Previously, we reported that Mel-18 has antiproliferative activity in breast cancer cells. However, its functional mechanism has not been fully elucidated. Here, we investigated the role of Mel-18 in human breast cancer. We saw an inverse correlation(More)
BACKGROUND A new papillotome has been developed, an isolated-tip needle-knife papillotome (Iso-Tome) that has a semi-oval-shaped tip of epoxide adhesive to prevent electric leakage from the tip of the incising needle. The coated tip aids in keeping the papillotome tightly in the orifice of the ampulla of Vater and is believed to prevent unintentional deep(More)
This study investigated the effect of 40% oxygen administration on addition task performance in three levels of difficulty and physiological signals, such as blood oxygen saturation and heart rate. The accuracy rates of the addition tasks were enhanced with 40% oxygen administration compared to 21% oxygen. As the difficulty level increased, the difference(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Treatment and management of tracheal defects remain challenging in head and neck surgery. Various reconstruction techniques have been used, with no consensus on the best approach. The purpose of this study was to explore a novel strategy to fabricate tissue-engineered trachea by using fibrin/hyaluronic acid (HA) composite gel and(More)
Inhibitor of DNA binding 1 (Id-1) has been implicated in tumor angiogenesis by regulating the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), but its molecularmechanismhasnotbeen fully understood.Here, weshow the cross talk between Id-1 and hypoxia-inducible factor-1A (HIF-1A), that Id-1 induces VEGF by enhancing the stability and activity of(More)
Vitamin C is the main vitamin source in potato tubers, and its antioxidant activity is known to benefit human health. To improve the vitamin C content and understand its accumulation patterns, we selected 10 advanced clones with high vitamin C content from 268 clones. The levels of the selected clones ranged from 32.3 to 38.9 mg·100 g−1 fresh weight. Among(More)
The purpose of this study was to measure the average anterior commissure (AC) volume of normal subjects in their 20s or 40s and to determine the effects of gender and age on AC volume. Magnetic resonance brain images were obtained for 93 people in their 20s (46 men, 47 women) and 87 in their 40s (36 men, 51 women). To investigate the effect of gender and(More)
