Bidirectional promoters are shared promoter sequences between divergent gene pair (genes proximal to each other on opposite strands), and can regulate the genes in both directions. In the human genome, > 10% of protein-coding genes are arranged head-to-head on opposite strands, with transcription start sites that are separated by < 1,000 base pairs. Many(More)
The article reports the results of the anatomic observations from dissecting 30 upper eyelids and 8 eyebrows of adult cadavers. In the eyebrow region, the anterior and posterior sheaths of the galea enclose the muscle plane where the frontalis, orbicularis and corrugator muscles are interdigitated. The posterior sheath attaches to supraorbital ridge through(More)
Substantial recent experimental evidence has demonstrated the existence of reciprocal interactions between the microvascular bed of a specific organ and intravascular metastatic tumor cells through expression of adhesion molecules and nitric oxide release, resulting in a significant impact upon metastatic outcomes. This review summarizes the current(More)
C-X-C chemokine receptor 7 (CXCR7) is a known promoter of tumor progression and metastasis; however, little is known about its role in colon cancer. The aim of the present study was to investigate the function of CXCR7 in human colon cancer cells. CXCR7 mRNA levels were examined in HT-29 and SW-480 human colon cancer cell lines using a quantitative(More)
