Polyglutamylation is a new class of posttranslational modification in which glutamate side chains are formed in proteins, although its biological significance is not well known. Through our genome-wide gene expression profile analyses of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) cells, we identified the overexpression of tubulin tyrosine ligase-like family(More)
To identify novel therapeutic targets for aggressive and therapy-resistant pancreatic cancer, we had previously performed expression profile analysis of pancreatic cancers using microarrays and found dozens of genes trans-activated in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) cells. Among them, this study focused on the characterization of a novel gene(More)
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) shows one of the worst mortality rates among the common malignancies, and the great majority of PDAC patients are diagnosed at an advanced stage where no effective therapy is presently available. Hence, identification of novel molecular targets and development of molecular therapy for PDAC are urgently required.(More)
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) shows the worst mortality among the common malignancies and development of novel therapies for PDAC through identification of good molecular targets is an urgent issue. Among dozens of over-expressing genes identified through our gene-expression profile analysis of PDAC cells, we here report CST6 (Cystatin 6 or E/M)(More)
A 64-year-old man complained of pain in his left humerus. A histopathological examination of biopsy specimens taken from the lesion revealed a hepatocellular carcinoma. No primary hepatic lesion was revealed in a subsequent examination performed at this time. Enhanced computed tomography examination of the abdomen 14 months later, showed a nodular lesion,(More)
