A gene controlling the number of primary rachis branches also controls the vascular bundle formation and hence is responsible to increase the harvest index and grain yield in rice
The quantitative trait locus controlling the number of primary rachis branches (PRBs) in rice was identified using backcrossed inbred lines of Sasanishiki/Habataki//Sasanishiki///Sasanishiki. TheExpand

Risk factors for the local recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma after a single session of percutaneous radiofrequency ablation
BackgroundRadiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a new, minimally invasive treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, there is little available information regarding local recurrence after aExpand

CD3 and EBER double positive cells in bone marrow are a diagnostic aid for EBV-positive T-cell lymphoproliferative disorders of childhood
We describe a case of Epstein–Barr virus (EBV)-positive T-cell lymphoproliferative disorders (EBV+ T-cell LPD) of childhood. The patient presented with high fever, jaundice, hepatosplenomegaly,Expand

Novel method to classify hemodynamic response obtained using multi-channel fNIRS measurements into two groups: exploring the combinations of channels
Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) in psychiatric studies has widely demonstrated that cerebral hemodynamics differs among psychiatric patients. Recently we found that children withExpand

Effective suppression of bystander effects by DMSO treatment of irradiated CHO cells.
Evidence is accumulating that irradiated cells produce some signals which interact with non-exposed cells in the same population via a bystander effect. Here, we examined whether DMSO is effective inExpand

Etoposide prevents apoptosis in mouse liver with D‐galactosamine/lipopolysaccharide‐induced fulminant hepatic failure resulting in reduction of lethality
D‐Galactosamine (GalN)/lipopolysaccharide (LPS)‐induced liver injury is an experimental model of fulminant hepatic failure in which tumor necrosis factor α (TNF‐α) plays a pivotal role. We examinedExpand

Osteoactivin expressed during cirrhosis development in rats fed a choline-deficient, L-amino acid-defined diet, accelerates motility of hepatoma cells.
BACKGROUND/AIMS Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is closely associated with chronic liver diseases, particularly cirrhosis. However, the genes involved in hepatocarcinogenesis in the context ofExpand

The peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma agonist, pioglitazone, inhibits fat accumulation and fibrosis in the livers of rats fed a choline-deficient, l-amino acid-defined diet.
Administration of a choline-deficient, l-amino acid-defined (CDAA) diet to rats causes steatohepatitis, hepatic fibrosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma, a pathology similar to that observed inExpand

Heat shock protein (HSP) 47 and collagen are upregulated during neointimal formation in the balloon-injured rat carotid artery.
Heat shock protein (HSP) 47, a collagen-specific molecular chaperone, is thought to be essential for the proper processing and secretion of procollagen molecules. We investigated the time course andExpand
