Sox9 and p300 Cooperatively Regulate Chromatin-mediated Transcription*
Chromatin structure is a fundamental component of gene regulation, expression, and cellular differentiation. We have previously reported that the multifunctional coactivator p300 is a member of theExpand

Interaction of the taxilin family with the nascent polypeptide‐associated complex that is involved in the transcriptional and translational processes
α‐Taxilin is a novel binding partner of the syntaxin family, which is implicated in intracellular vesicle traffic. We have here found that α‐taxilin interacts with the nascent polypeptide‐associatedExpand

Effects of Extracranial–Intracranial Bypass for Patients With Hemorrhagic Moyamoya Disease: Results of the Japan Adult Moyamoya Trial
Background and Purpose— About one half of those who develop adult-onset moyamoya disease experience intracranial hemorrhage. Despite the extremely high frequency of rebleeding attacks and poorExpand

A Triad of Serum Response Factor and the GATA and NK Families Governs the Transcription of Smooth and Cardiac Muscle Genes*
Serum response factor and the (CC(A/T)6GG) (CArG) box interact to promote the transcription of c-fos and muscle genes; this tissue-specific activity may require co-regulators for serum responseExpand

Evidence for shared recognition of a peptide ligand by a diverse panel of non-obese diabetic mice-derived, islet-specific, diabetogenic T cell clones.
MHC class II-restricted autoreactive T cells play a major role in the development of autoimmune diabetes mellitus in both human and mouse. Two of our groups previously established panels ofExpand

3D-CT evaluation of facial asymmetry in patients with maxillofacial deformities.
OBJECTIVE The aims of this study were to characterize the symmetrical features of patients with facial deformities and to suggest a classification system for facial asymmetry based onExpand

Vascular Remodeling Induced by Naturally Occurring Unsaturated Lysophosphatidic Acid In Vivo
Background—We previously identified unsaturated (16:1, 18:1, and 18:2) but not saturated (12:0, 14:0, 16:0, and 18:0) lysophosphatidic acids (LPAs) as potent factors for vascular smooth muscle cellExpand

Susceptible MHC alleles, not background genes, select an autoimmune T cell reactivity.
To detect and characterize autoreactive T cells in diabetes-prone NOD mice, we have developed a multimeric MHC reagent with high affinity for the BDC-2.5 T cell receptor, which is reactive against aExpand

Mitigation of osmotic and salt stresses by abscisic acid through reduction of stress-derived oxidative damage in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
Abstract In the green alga, Chlamydomonas reinhardtii , externally added abscisic acid (ABA) partly released the growth suppression caused by osmotic stress with sorbitol and salt stress with NaCl,Expand
