The spinal nucleus of the bulbocavernosus (SNB) neuromuscular system is a highly conserved and well-studied model of sexual differentiation of the vertebrate nervous system. Sexual differentiation of the SNB is currently thought to be mediated by the direct action of perinatal testosterone on androgen receptors (ARs) in the bulbocavernosus/levator ani(More)
Osteopontin is a matrix protein which belongs to the integrin superfamily and is involved in cell adhesion. In the present study, we examined the regulation of the mRNA expression of osteopontin by interleukin 1 alpha (IL-1 alpha) in osteoblasts. IL-1 alpha greatly increased the steady-state level of osteopontin mRNA in both a mouse osteoblastic cell line(More)
Radiotherapy is an important therapeutic method for lung cancer. However, in clinical situations, cellular resistance to radiotherapy is a significant component of tumor treatment failure. Thus, clarification in cellular mechanism underlying radiosensitivity of cancer cell is urgently needed. In this study, we established a radiation model of Lewis lung(More)
