Staurosporine has been known to induce chondrogenesis in monolayer cultures of mesenchymal cells by dissolving actin stress fibers. The aim of this study was to further elucidate how the alteration of actin filaments by staurosporine induces chondrogenesis. Specifically, we examined whether the transforming growth factor (TGF)-β pathway is implicated.(More)
The EYA1 gene is known as the causative gene of BOR (Branchio-oto-renal) syndrome which is a genetic disorder associated with branchial cleft cysts of fistulae, hearing loss, ear malformation, and renal anomalies. Although approximately 40 % of patients with BOR syndrome have mutations in the EYA1 gene and over 130 disease-causing mutations in EYA1 have(More)
Recently Na+-selective microelectrodes (NaSM) have been used to measure quantitatively small changes in intracellular sodium ion activity (aiNa) and to determine a precise time course of comparatively rapid change in aiNa. In such studies, accurate measurement of aiNa requires the following criteria: (i) NaSM should have a fast response time and (ii) an(More)
The effect of norepinephrine on the Na+-K+ pump was investigated by simultaneously measuring intracellular sodium ion activity (aiNa) and contractile force of canine cardiac Purkinje fibers driven at 1.0 Hz in K+-free solution, high K+ solution, and in the presence of tetrodotoxin. In Tyrode solution containing 5.4mM [K+]o, 10(-6) M norepinephrine decreased(More)
