The deposition of amyloid beta protein (A beta) in the cerebral cortex is the pathological characteristic of Alzheimer's disease (AD), and patients with AD suffer from progressive memory loss. Transgenic experiments have revealed that long-term memory is dependent on cyclic AMP-response element binding protein, CREB. CREB phosphorylation at serine-133 is(More)
The coexistence of cholecystokinin-octapeptide-like (CCK-L) and/or vasoactive-intestinal-polypeptide-like immunoreactive (VIP-LI) materials and glutamate decarboxylase (GAD) was studied in the rat hippocampus and dentate gyrus by means of immunohistochemistry. Consecutive 40-micron-thick sections were incubated in different antisera and those cells which(More)
BACKGROUND The renin-angiotensin system (RAS) is thought to have a role in carcinogenesis, and RAS inhibition may prevent tumour growth. METHODS We retrospectively investigated the impact of angiotensin I-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and angiotensin II type-1 receptor blockers (ARBs) in 155 patients with pancreatic cancer receiving gemcitabine(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of human serum (HS) on growth and differentiation capacity of human synovium-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) in comparison to cells grown in fetal bovine serum (FBS). Human MSCs were isolated from the synovium of knee joints of three donors and the cells were cultured individually in varying(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Endoscopic sphincterotomy is a widely accepted technique for the treatment of patients with common bile duct stones. However, it is still associated with occasional complications. The recently developed technique of endoscopic papillary balloon dilation seems to be a safe and effective procedure, and to have great potential for(More)
Using specific radioimmunoassays and immunocytochemistry for neurokinin A (NKA) and neurokinin B (NKB), distribution and localization of these peptides in rat peripheral tissues were studied. NKA-like immunoreactivity (NKA-LI) was present in highest levels of 15.7-23.9 pmol/g wet wt. and NKB-like immunoreactivity (NKB-LI) was in levels of 0.33-0.67 pmol/g(More)
To investigate the mechanisms of peroxisome assembly and the molecular basis of peroxisome assembly disorders, we isolated and characterized a peroxisome-deficient CHO cell mutant, ZP139, which was found to belong to human complementation group II, the same group as that of our earlier mutant, ZP105. These mutants had a phenotypic deficiency in the import(More)
Rat cDNA encoding a 376-amino acid peroxin was isolated by functional complementation of a peroxisome-deficient Chinese hamster ovary cell mutant, ZP110, of complementation group 14 (CG14). The primary sequence showed 28 and 24% amino acid identity with the yeast Pex14p from Hansenula polymorpha and Saccharomyces cerevisiae, respectively; therefore, we(More)
AIMS Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) manifest aggressive clinical behaviour and have poor prognosis. Although constitutive activation of the nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) pathway has been documented, knowledge about the genetic alterations leading to the impairment of the NF-κB pathway in PCNSLs is still limited. This study was aimed to unravel(More)
We isolated peroxisome biogenesis mutants from Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells, using the 9-(1'-pyrene)nonanol/ultraviolet (P9OH/ UV) method and wild-type CHO-K1 cells that had been stably transfected with cDNA encoding Pex2p (formerly peroxisome assembly factor-1, PAF-1). Three mutant cell clones, ZP110, ZP111, and ZP114, showed cytosolic localization of(More)
