Our understanding of the biochemical mechanisms that mediate chemoreception in insects has been greatly improved after the discovery of olfactory and taste receptor proteins. However, the presence of soluble polypeptides in high concentration around the dendrites of sensory neurons still poses unanswered questions. More than 2 decades after their discovery(More)
The survival of motor neuron (SMN1) gene product, SMN, is detected both in the cytoplasm and in nuclear gems and cajal bodies. We show here that SMN exon 6 is essential both for formation of its nuclear foci and for its cytoplasmic localization. However, exon 7 inhibits the formation of SMN nuclear foci but promotes SMN cytoplasmic localization. More(More)
Detection of stereotypic hallmarks of apoptosis during cell death induced by menadione, including DNA laddering and the formation of apoptotic bodies, is reported. Comet assay and the TdT-mediated dUTP nick end labelling (TUNEL) procedure were also performed to detect DNA fragmentation. Inhibition of DNA fragmentation by Ac-Asp-Glu-Val-Asp-aldehyde(More)

Background/Aims Methylation status plays a causal role in carcinogenesis in targeted tissues. However, the relationship between the DNA methylation status of multiple genes in blood leukocytes and colorectal cancer (CRC) susceptibility as well as interactions between dietary factors and CRC risks are unclear. Methods We performed a case-control study with(More)
The present study was designed to assess the expression of microRNA-542-3p (miR-542-3p) in human colon cancer and investigate the possible molecular mechanisms underlying the effect of miR-542-3p on the growth and invasion of colon cancer cells. We found that miR-542-3p expression was downregulated in colon cancer patient tissues, compared with that(More)
