Dysregulated Notch signaling has a critical role in the tumorigenesis. Jagged1, a Notch ligand, is overexpressed in various human cancers. Recent studies revealed the involvement of Jagged1 in colorectal cancer (CRC) development. These basic studies provide a promising potential for inhibition of the Notch pathway for the treatment of CRC. Herein, we aimed(More)
Protein tyrosine kinase 6 (PTK6, also called BRK) is an intracellular tyrosine kinase expressed in the majority of human breast tumors and breast cancer cell lines, but its expression has not been reported in normal mammary gland. To study functions of PTK6 in vivo, we generated and characterized several transgenic mouse lines with expression of human PTK6(More)
Protein tyrosine kinase 6 (PTK6) expression, activation, and amplification of the PTK6 gene have been reported in ERBB2/HER2-positive mammary gland cancers. To explore contributions of PTK6 to mammary gland tumorigenesis promoted by activated ERBB2, we crossed Ptk6-/- mice with the mouse mammary tumor virus-ERBB2 transgenic mouse line expressing activated(More)
Gibberellic acid (GA) promotes cotton fiber cell elongation under in vitro culture conditions and GA signal transduction is mediated by DELLA proteins. Our laboratory has cloned several DELLA genes from cotton and generated transgenic lines in Arabidopsis over-expressing the DELLA gene (GhRGL) and the DELLA-domain deletion mutant gene (Ghrgl). Comparative(More)
Cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) is an important crop, and its starch formation is regulated by sucrose metabolism and transport. To understand the roles of sucrose metabolism and transport in cassava under water stress, we studied not only sucrose metabolism and transport in cassava abscission zones (AZs) but also expression of respective genes. Sucrose(More)
The aptamer TY04 is a single-stranded DNA. However, its biological function has not been elucidated. Here, we found that TY04 specifically bound to multiple myeloma cells MM.1S, and some membrane proteins on the surface of MM.1S cells constituted the target molecules of TY04. TY04 inhibited the growth of multiple myeloma cell lines, induced cell cycle(More)
