The ubiquitin-like protein Nedd8/Rub1 covalently modifies and activates cullin ubiquitin ligases. However, the repertoire of Nedd8-modified proteins and the regulation of protein neddylation status are not clear. The cysteine protease DEN1/NEDP1 specifically processes the Nedd8 precursor and has been suggested to deconjugate Nedd8 from cullin proteins. By(More)
Activated hepatic stellate cells which contribute to liver fibrosis have represented an important target for antifibrotic therapy. In this study, we found that TRAIL inhibited PI3K/Akt-dependent FoxO phosphorylation and relocated FoxO proteins into the nucleus from the cytosol in activated human hepatic stellate LX-2 cells. The accumulated FoxO proteins in(More)
As the Internet is quickly evolving from best-effort networks to business quality networks, billing based on the precise traffic measurement becomes an important issue for Internet service providers (ISP). Billing settlement is necessary not only between ISP and customers but also between ISP. Currently, most ISP use a flat rate charging policy. Besides the(More)
The wing imaginal disc of Drosophila consists of the primordia for the adult wing and the body wall. The zinc-finger transcription factor Teashirt (Tsh) is expressed in the region proximal to the wing primordium and regulates the formation of the wing-body wall boundary. Here, we report that Tollo/Toll-8, a member of Toll family transmembrane proteins, is(More)
Planar cell polarity (PCP) signaling is mediated by the serpentine receptor Frizzled (Fz) and transduced by Dishevelled (Dsh). Wingless (Wg) signaling utilizes Drosophila Frizzled 2 (DFz2) as a receptor and also requires Dsh for transducing signals to regulate cell proliferation and differentiation in many developmental contexts. Distinct pathways are(More)
NEDD8 conjugation of Cullin has an important role in ubiquitin-mediated protein degradation. The COP9 signalosome, of which CSN5 is the major catalytic subunit, is a major Cullin deneddylase. Another deneddylase, Deneddylase 1, has also been shown to process the Nedd8 precursor. In Drosophila, the DEN1 mutants do not have increased levels of Cullin(More)
The perceptual bias for sexual material has been explored mainly in normal men, and to date little attention has been paid to sexually aggressive men. The current study compared performance of sexually aggressive and nonaggressive men on experimental tasks involving sexual stimuli. Participants viewed the visual images (neutral or sexual), and, depending on(More)
