BACKGROUND Excess production of nitric oxide (NO) by inducible NO synthase (iNOS) has been implicated in a variety of physiological processes including vascular remodeling. To elucidate whether endogenous NO generated by iNOS is involved in the programmed cell death (apoptosis) of the vasculature, iNOS cDNA- expressing construct was transfected into rat and(More)
L-type amino-acid transporter 1 (LAT1) plays a key role in cell growth and survival. To determine the prognostic significance of LAT1 in multiple myeloma (MM), we investigated the expression of LAT1 and its functional subunit, 4Fc heavy chain (CD98), on myeloma cells by immunohistochemistry in 100 newly diagnosed MM patients. High expression (moderate or(More)
