In this article, we present a case in which marked intratubular calcification occurred in the transplanted kidney. The patient received living renal transplantation without control of severe secondary hyperparathyroidism, and the tacrolimus hydrate was used as an immunosuppressive agent, the adverse effects of which can induce intratubular calcification.(More)
Differential screening-selected gene aberrative in neuroblastoma (DAN) belongs to a novel gene family that includes the Xenopus head-inducing factor, Cerberus and the dorsalizing factor, Gremlin. It has been suggested that members of this family control diverse processes in growth, development and the cell cycle.Here, we demonstrate that the DAN protein is(More)
Differential screening-selected gene aberrative in neuroblastoma (Dan) protein is produced in small neurons of dorsal root ganglia. Thermal and mechanical allodynia and Fos expression in the spinal dorsal horn evoked by inflammation and neuropathic pain were investigated using Dan-deficient mice. Mice showed pain reactions induced by the introduction of(More)
Fractures of the axis are considered to be one of the most common injuries to the cervical spine, accounting for more than 20% of all cervical spine fractures. Multiple fractures of the axis are much rarer, accounting for 1% of all cervical fractures. Management of such complex fractures is still challenging, and there is no strong consensus for the(More)
We previously reported that DAN, a founding member of the DAN family of secreted proteins, acts as an inhibitor of cell cycle progression and is closely involved in retinoic acid-induced neuroblastoma differentiation. In this study, we found that DAN as well as p73, the recently identified p53 family member, was up-regulated during osteoblast(More)
The objective of the study was to evaluate tissue reactions such as bone genesis, cartilage genesis and graft materials in the early phase of lumbar intertransverse process fusion in a rabbit model using computed tomography (CT) imaging with CT intensity (Hounsfield units) measurement, and to compare these data with histological results. Lumbar(More)
Differential screening-selected gene aberrative in neuroblastoma(DAN) belongs to a novel gene family(DAN family) that includes the head-inducing factor, Cerberus, and dorsaling factor, Gremlin. It has been suggested that DAN family members control diverse processes in growth, development and the cell cycle. Here, we demonstrate that DAN is produced in the(More)
