BACKGROUND Invertebrates express regulatory receptors, transporters, and channels responsive to established drugs of abuse, many of which mediate their effects through catecholamine pathways. We hypothesized that invertebrate neural systems may serve as models by which to evaluate the interactive pharmacological effects of these agents. MATERIAL AND(More)
Inorganic pyrophosphatase (PPase) catalyzes the hydrolysis of pyrophosphate to form orthophosphate. Pyrophosphate can substitute for ATP under certain circumstances. We previously conducted a proteomic analysis to investigate tumor-specific protein expression in gastric cancer, and PPase was identified as a potential gastric tumor-specific marker; it was(More)
Schizophrenia is a multifactorial disorder characterized by the contribution of multiple susceptibility genes that may act in conjunction with epigenetic processes and environmental factors. The catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) gene, which is located in the 22q11 microdeletion, has been considered as a candidate gene for schizophrenia because of its(More)
Rho GDP dissociation inhibitor 2 (RhoGDI2) expression correlates with tumor growth, metastasis, and chemoresistance in gastric cancer. Here, we show that RhoGDI2 functions in the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), which is responsible for invasiveness during tumor progression. This tumorigenic activity is associated with repression of E-cadherin by(More)
Rho GDP dissociation inhibitor 2 (RhoGDI2) promotes tumor growth and malignant progression and enhances chemoresistance of gastric cancer. Recently, we noted an inverse correlation between RhoGDI2 and 14-3-3σ expression, which suggests that 14-3-3σ is a target of gastric cancer metastasis and the chemoresistance-promoting effect of RhoGDI2. Herein, we(More)
Over the last decades, the importance of food in the development of chronic diseases has been examined, as well as the medical value of eating healthy. The contribution of the eating process itself to health and well-being, however, has not been questioned until most recently. Biology has linked eating to appetitive motivational processes with their(More)
Sporting championships and other media events can induce very strong feelings of co-presence that can change communication patterns within large communities. Live tweeting reactions to media events provide high-resolution data with time-stamps to understand these behavioral dynamics. We employ a computational focus group method to identify a population of(More)
We present Elice, an online CS (computer science) education platform, and Elivate, a system for (i) taking student learning data from Elice, (ii) inferring their progress through an educational taxonomy tailored for programming education, and (iii) generating the real-time assistance for students and lecturers. Online courses suffer from high average(More)
