Two subgroups of mitogen-activated protein kinases, c-jun NH2-terminal kinase (JNK) and extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK), are thought to be involved in cultured cardiac myocyte hypertrophy and gene expression. To examine the in vivo activation of these kinases, we measured cardiac JNK and ERK activities in conscious rats subjected to acute or(More)
BACKGROUND The effect of balloon injury on the arterial signal transduction pathway has not been examined. In vitro studies show that extracellular signal-regulated kinases (ERKs) and c-Jun NH2-terminal kinases (JNKs), belonging to the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) family, play a critical role in the activation of transcription factor activator(More)
The in vivo signal transduction pathway, responsible for hypertension-induced glomerular injury, remains to be clarified. In this study, the effect of angiotensin II (Ang II)-induced hypertension was examined on glomerular mitogen activated protein kinases (MAPK), including extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) and c-jun NH2-terminal kinase (JNK), and(More)
Early T-cell precursor-acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ETP-ALL) has been identified as a high-risk subtype of pediatric T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL). Conventional chemotherapy is not fully effective for this subtype of leukemia; therefore, potential therapeutic targets need to be explored. Analysis of the gene expression patterns of the(More)
