BACKGROUND Rho-associated coiled-coil containing protein kinase (Rho-kinase/ROCK) is involved in various cellular functions including cell proliferation, and is generally considered to be oncogenic, while some studies show that ROCK functions as a negative regulator of cancer progression. As a result, the precise role of ROCK remains controversial. We have(More)
Platinum-containing anti-cancer drugs such as cisplatin are widely used for patients with various types of cancers, however, resistance to cisplatin is observed in some cases. Whereas we have recently reported that high dose UV-C (200 J/m²) induces colorectal cancer cell proliferation by desensitization of EGFR, which leads oncogenic signaling in these(More)
Despite more than two decades of effort from many research groups and large data centers, the supply of LRs falls far short of need even in the languages with the greatest number of speakers, controlling the largest shares of the world economy. For languages with less international recognition, resources are scarce, fragmentary or absent. Recent programs(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM The precise role of phosphorylated heat shock protein (HSP) 27 (p-HSP27) in pancreatic cancer remains to be elucidated. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the expression of p-HSP27 predicts the prognosis of patients with pancreatic cancer. METHODS We retrospectively assessed 49 biopsied pancreatic cancer tissue samples(More)
