Intercellular junctions are crucial for mechanotransduction, but whether tight junctions contribute to the regulation of cell-cell tension and adherens junctions is unknown. Here, we demonstrate that the tight junction protein ZO-1 regulates tension acting on VE-cadherin-based adherens junctions, cell migration, and barrier formation of primary endothelial(More)
Yeast cells enter and undergo gametogenesis relatively asynchronously, making it technically challenging to perform stage-specific genomic and biochemical analyses. Cell-to-cell variation in the expression of the master regulator of entry into sporulation IME1, has been implicated to be the underlying cause of asynchronous sporulation. Here we find that(More)
Fifty-two patients with early gastric cancer are described. At presentation, the average age was 60 years and the male:female ratio was 3:2. The patients had presenting symptoms indistinguishable from those due to benign peptic ulcer disease. Endoscopic examination with multiple biopsies was the most accurate means of diagnosis, with an overall 93%(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the change in bronchial response to cumulative doses from two beclomethasone dipropionate metered-dose inhalers (MDI), each using chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) propellants, in asthma patients previously showing falls in forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1) shortly after exposure to beclomethasone MDI. METHODOLOGY A total of 18 patients(More)
