Sirtuin 3 (Sirt3), a major mitochondrial NAD(+)-dependent deacetylase, targets various mitochondrial proteins for lysine deacetylation and regulates important cellular functions such as energy metabolism, aging, and stress response. In this study, we identified the human 8-oxoguanine-DNA glycosylase 1 (OGG1), a DNA repair enzyme that excises(More)
The dismal outcome of gastric cancer patients highlights the need for diagnostic biomarkers and effective therapeutic targets, such as microRNAs. We sought to discover microRNAs involved in gastric cancer, and to elucidate their downstream target mechanisms. Both cultured gastric epithelial cells (HFE145 and NCI-N87) and primary human gastric tissues (31(More)
BACKGROUND Recently, we found that Staphylococcus aureus produces extracellular vesicles (EV) that contain pathogenic proteins. Although S. aureus infection has been linked with atopic dermatitis (AD), the identities of the causative agents from S. aureus are controversial. We evaluated whether S. aureus-derived EV are causally related to the pathogenesis(More)
Sustained endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress has been linked to cell death and the pathogenesis of many liver diseases, including toxic liver, cholestasis, and infectious liver disease. The cellular pathways that attenuate hepatic ER stress have been the focus of many recent studies, but the role of microRNAs (miRNA) in this process remains unknown. Here, we(More)
Both neuregulin 1 (NRG1) and its receptor ErbB4 are susceptibility genes for schizophrenia. Reduced synchronization of evoked oscillations in several cortical regions, especially in the prefrontal cortex, is associated with the core symptoms of schizophrenia. Recent studies have reported that NRG1 may affect the hippocampal oscillations. However, the role(More)
In addition to androgen differences between males and females, there are genetic differences that are caused by unequal dosage of sex chromosome genes. Using the cuprizone-induced demyelination model, we recently showed that surgical gonadectomy of adult mice resulted in decreased normal myelination and remyelination compared to gonadally intact animals,(More)

—Quadruped robot has many advantages over wheeled mobile robots, but it is a discrete system in which joints of each leg has to operate in particular fashion to get the desired locomotion. So, dynamics plays an important role in the operation and control of quadruped robot. Proper conception of the dynamic formulation is must for the complex system like(More)
