The recent development and advancement of next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies have enabled the characterization of the human genome at extremely high resolution. In the retrovirology field, NGS technologies have been applied to integration-site analysis and deep sequencing of viral genomes in combination with PCR amplification using virus-specific(More)
A facile synthesis of 2'-deoxy-5-trifluoromethyluridine and 2'-deoxy-5-trifluoromethylcytidine phosphoramidites from commercially available 2'-deoxyuridine and 2'-deoxycytidine was achieved, respectively. The obtained phosphoramidites were incorporated into oligonucleotides, and their binding affinity to double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) and single-stranded RNA(More)
Human T-cell leukemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1) is a retrovirus associated with human diseases, such as adult T-cell leukemia (ATL) and HTLV-1-associated myelopathy/Tropic spastic paraparesis (HAM/TSP). As a retrovirus, its life cycle includes a step where HTLV-1 is integrated into the host genomic DNA and forms proviral DNA. In the chronic phase of the(More)
We previously reported that necrosis occurs predominantly in porcine renal tubular LLC-PK1 cells, when the cells were exposed transiently to a high concentration of cisplatin. Moreover, we demonstrated that generation of reactive oxygen species and subsequent production of tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) through phosphorylation of p38 MAPK are implicated in(More)
We reported earlier that reactive oxygen species are implicated in necrotic injury induced by a transient exposure of cultured renal tubular cells to a high concentration of cisplatin but not in apoptosis occurring after continuous exposure to a low concentration of cisplatin. We report here the protective effect of cyclic AMP against cisplatin-induced(More)
