Platelet-VWF complexes are preferred substrates of ADAMTS13 under fluid shear stress.
Endothelial cells secrete prothrombotic ultralarge von Willebrand factor (VWF) multimers, and the metalloprotease ADAMTS13 cleaves them into smaller, less dangerous multimers. This reaction isExpand

A recombinant murine meizothrombin precursor, prothrombin R157A/R268A, inhibits thrombosis in a model of acute carotid artery injury.
Mutations in human prothrombin that generate a stable form of meizothrombin or meizothrombin(desF1) cause dysprothrombinemia in both the homozygous and heterozygous state, suggesting thatExpand

Control of Drosophila retinoid and fatty acid binding glycoprotein expression by retinoids and retinoic acid: northern, western and immunocytochemical analyses.
In Drosophila, thorough retinoid deprivation is possible, optimizing investigation of the effects of vitamin A metabolites and retinoic acid on the visual system. Retinoids had been found to controlExpand

Anticystogenic activity of a small molecule PAK4 inhibitor may be a novel treatment for autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease.
Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) is a common hereditary renal disease with no currently available targeted therapies. Based on the established connection between β-cateninExpand

Electron microscopic studies of human pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
Tissue samples from 12 patients with pancreatic carcinoma were studied by light and electron microscopy. Ten were diagnosed as adenocarcinoma by light microscopy. However, three different electronExpand

Centrosome amplification disrupts renal development and causes cystogenesis
Centrosome number is tightly controlled to ensure proper ciliogenesis, mitotic spindle assembly, and cellular homeostasis. Centrosome amplification (the formation of excess centrosomes) has beenExpand
