Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) interacts with at least six G protein-coupled transmembrane LPA receptors. Recently, it has been demonstrated that each LPA receptor acts as a positive or negative regulator of cellular function. In the present study, to assess a biological role of LPA receptors on cell migration of pancreatic cancer cells, we generated LPA(More)
Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) mediates a wide range of biological responses with G protein-coupled transmembrane receptors (LPA receptors). So far, at least six types of LPA receptors (LPA receptor-1 (LPA1) to LPA6) have been identified. Recently, it has been reported that LPA3 indicates opposite effects on cellular functions of cancer cells. In the present(More)
Displaying a 3D geometric model of a user in real-time has an advantage for a telecommunication system because depth information is useful for non-verbal communication such as finger-pointing and gestures that contain 3D information. However, a range image acquired by a rangefinder is suffered from errors due to image noises and distortions in depth(More)
According to current data, the capacity to cause nonprogrammed or unscheduled cell proliferation in target tissues, a common characteristic of chemical carcinogens, may play a more important role in the development of tumors than does genotoxicity. This paper provides strong support for the validity of this conclusion. Ames-negative nongenotoxicants may be(More)
