Blastomycosis-like pyoderma (BLP) is a type of chronic pyoderma characterized histologically by specific epidermal changes namely: pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia and intraepithelial abscesses. These epidermal changes are also seen in blastomycosis (referred to as deep dermatophytosis in North America). Here, we describe the case of a 53-year-old male(More)
The c-myc transcriptional suppressor, far-upstream element (FUSE)-binding protein (FBP)-interacting repressor (FIR), is alternatively spliced in colorectal cancer tissue (Matsushita et al., Cancer Res 2006). Recently, the knockdown of SAP155 pre-mRNA-splicing factor, a subunit of SF3b, was reported to disturb FIR pre-mRNA splicing and yield FIRΔexon2, an(More)
The Far UpStream Element (FUSE)-binding protein-interacting repressor (FIR), a c-myc transcriptional suppressor, is alternatively spliced removing the transcriptional repression domain within exon 2 (FIRΔexon2) in colorectal cancers. SAP155 is a subunit of the essential splicing factor 3b (SF3b) subcomplex in the spliceosome. This study aims to study the(More)
Oncogenic c-Myc plays a critical role in cell proliferation, apoptosis, and tumorigenesis, but the precise mechanisms that drive this activity remain largely unknown. P27Kip1 (CDKN1B) arrests cells in G1, and SAP155 (SF3B1), a subunit of the essential splicing factor 3b (SF3b) subcomplex of the spliceosome, is required for proper P27 pre-mRNA splicing.(More)
A new material particle dynamical domain decomposition method MPD/sup 3/ has been developed. The method is suitable for a large scale parallel molecular dynamic simulation on a heterogeneous computing net. Performance of the MPD/sup 3/ algorithm is tested in various computing environments, such as PC clusters, super computer clusters, and grid. It is shown(More)
Development of useful biomarkers is pivotal for prediction of micro-metastasis, recurrence probability and/or prognosis of the patients. Recent studies have revealed that cancer-specific alternative splicing can be valuable for cancer cell detection. Among them, FUSE-binding protein-interacting repressor, FIR, has been reported to repress c-myc(More)
