Reports have suggested that the two Notch ligands, Dll1 and Dll4, are indispensable to maintain the homeostasis of the intestinal epithelium. However, within the intestinal epithelium, the precise distribution of the cells that express those ligands at the protein level remains largely unknown. Here, we show a series of immunohistochemical analysis through(More)
PURPOSE Eg5, a mitotic motor kinesin protein, plays an essential role in bipolar spindle formation in the M phase of the cell cycle. LY2523355 (litronesib) is an allosteric inhibitor of Eg5. This phase 1 and dose-finding study aimed to assess the safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), recommended dose for further studies, and preliminary efficacy in Japanese(More)
The present paper describes production of cloned pigs from fibroblast cells of transgenic pigs expressing human decay accelerating factor (DAF, CD55) and N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase III (GnT-III) that remodels sugar-chain biosynthesis. Two nuclear transfer protocols were used: a two-step activation (TA) method and a delayed activation (DA) method.(More)
Ligand-dependent activation of Notch signaling is required to maintain the stem-cell niche of normal intestinal epithelium. However, the precise role of Notch signaling in the maintenance of the intestinal tumor stem cell niche and the importance of the RBPJ-independent non-canonical pathway in intestinal tumors remains unknown. Here we show that Notch(More)
DNA fragmentation is a biochemical hallmark of apoptosis. Several endonucleases, including CAD/DFF40 and endonuclease G, are implicated in DNA fragmentation. DNase gamma has also been considered to be one of the enzymes involved, but its role in relation to CAD/DFF40 in apoptosis has not been fully elucidated. Here, we distinguished between DNase(More)
Intestinal epithelial cells (IECs) play an indispensable role in maintaining body fluid balance partly through their ability to regulate anion/fluid secretion. Yet in various inflammatory gastrointestinal diseases, over-secretion of anions results in symptoms such as severe diarrhoea. Endogenous mediators, such as vasoactive intestinal peptide or(More)
The data on the immunohistochemical analysis of conditional Notch ligand knockout mice is presented. Targeted deletion of Jag1, Dll1, Dll4, or Dll1 plus Dll4 in Lgr5+ve cells was induced by a Cre-mediated gene recombination, and differentiation or proliferation of the intestinal epithelial cells was examined by immunohistochemistry. These data are the(More)
