SH-PTP2 is a nontransmembrane human protein-tyrosine phosphatase that contains two Src homology 2 (SH2) domains and binds to insulin receptor substrate 1 (IRS-1) via these domains in response to insulin. The expression of a catalytically inactive mutant of SH-PTP2 (containing the mutation Cys-459-->Ser) in Chinese hamster ovary cells that overexpress human(More)
In this study, we developed an automatic extraction scheme for the precise recognition of the contours of masses on digital mammograms in order to improve a computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) system. We propose a radial-searching contour extraction method based on a modified active contour model (ACM). In this technique, after determining the central point of a(More)
To identify tyrosine kinases which play roles in mammalian early development, the 3' rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE) was performed on mouse embryonic stem (ES) cells. Among eight tyrosine kinases thus identified, we report here a novel tyrosine kinase, hyk (adhesion structures linked tyrosine kinase). The sequences of the 4.7 kb cDNA indicated the(More)
PTP1C is a non-transmembrane protein-tyrosine phosphatase and contains two Src homology-2 (SH2) domains. Insulin stimulated the tyrosine phosphorylation of PTP1C in human 1M-9 lymphoblast cells, in rat H35 hepatoma cells and in Chinese hamster ovary cells over-expressing both insulin receptors and PTP1C. Insulin also stimulated the tyrosine phosphorylation(More)
To determine the expression of various protein-tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs) in human gastric cancers, cDNAs encoding conserved PTP domains were amplified by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction from KATO-III cell mRNA and sequenced. Among 72 polymerase chain reaction clones, one of the cDNA sequences encoded a novel potential PTP (stomach(More)
The Japanese NPO Central Committee on Quality Control of Mammographic Screening has initiated international exchange activities regarding quality control of mammographic screening with the concerned organizations in East Asian countries with the objective of contributing to reducing breast cancer mortality in the region. This paper describes the status of(More)
