Neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease (AD) and Parkinson's disease (PD), are characterized by progressive loss of cognitive function, dementia, and problems with movements. In order to find new protein biomarkers of high specificity from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of AD and PD patients, one-dimensional gel electrophoresis (1-DE) coupled(More)
Microglia-driven inflammatory responses have both neuroprotective and neurotoxic effects in the CNS. The excessive and chronic activation of microglia, however, may shift the balance towards neurotoxic effects. In this regard, proteins secreted from activated microglia likely play a key role in the neurotoxic effects. To characterize secreted proteins of(More)
Glial cells are non-neuronal components of the central nervous system (CNS). They are endowed with diverse functions and are provided with tools to detect their own activities and those of neighboring neurons. Glia and neurons are in continuous reciprocal communication under both physiological and neuropathological conditions, and glia secrete various(More)
The observation that radioiodide uptake (RAIU) activity, mediated by the Na ϩ /I Ϫ symporter (NIS), is significantly increased in lactating breast suggests that RAIU and NIS expression in mammary gland are modulated by hormones involved in active lactation. We showed that both the NIS expression level and RAIU in rat mammary gland are maximal during active(More)
Proteomic analysis of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples derived from patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) or Parkinson's disease (PD) was performed. On the basis of liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry, two-dimensional gel electrophoresis analysis, and Western blot validation, it was found that the level of soluble form of monocyte(More)
Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is an aggressive type of lung cancer, and the detection of SCLCs at an early stage is necessary for successful therapy and for improving cancer survival rates. Fucosylation is one of the most common glycosylation-based modifications. Increased levels of fucosylation have been reported in a number of pathological conditions,(More)
The sodium/iodide symporter (NIS) is a membrane transport glycoprotein normally expressed in the thyroid gland and lactating mammary gland. NIS is a target for radioiodide imaging and therapeutic ablation of thyroid carcinomas and has the potential for similar use in breast cancer treatment. To facilitate NIS-mediated radionuclide therapy, it is necessary(More)
BACKGROUND The inflammatory disease periodontitis results in tooth loss and can even lead to diseases of the whole body if not treated. Gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) reflects the condition of the gingiva and contains proteins transuded from serum or cells at inflamed sites. In this study, we aimed to discover potential protein biomarkers for periodontitis(More)
A giant congenital melanocytic nevus (GCMN) is a malformation of the pigment cells. It is a distress to the patients for two reasons: one is disfigurement, and the other is the possibility of malignant changes. However, the underlying mechanisms of the development of GCMN and melanotumorigenesis in GCMN are unknown. Hence, the aim of this study was to(More)
