A set of 29 monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) specific for the rabies virus nucleoprotein (N protein) was prepared and used to analyze the topography of antigenic sites. At least four partially overlapping antigenic sites were delineated on the N protein of rabies virus by competitive binding assays. Indirect immunofluorescent antibody tests using MAbs with a(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common cancers world-wide but the molecular mechanisms that underlie hepatocarcinogenesis are not fully determined. On the same surgical sample with HCC, we performed microarray-based gene expression profiling and karyotype analysis using a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) array. In addition,(More)
Patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) have a poor prognosis, and novel molecular targets for treating recurrence and progression of the disease along with associated biomarkers are urgently required. In the present study, expression and the regulatory mechanism of TUSC1 (tumor suppressor candidate 1) were investigated to determine if it is a(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide and its prognosis is poor. Novel targets for treating recurrence and progression along with associated biomarkers are urgently required. In this study, the expression and regulatory mechanism of DENN/MADD domain containing 2D (DENND2D) were investigated in an(More)
Thirty-five monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) against glycoprotein (G protein) of the RC-HL strain of the rabies virus have been established. Using these MAbs, two antigenic sites (I and II) were delineated on the G protein of the RC-HL strain in a competitive binding assay. Of these, 34 MAbs recognized the epitopes on site II. Site II was further categorized(More)
In the present study, we sought to identify novel suppressor genes of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) using our newly designed triple-combination array. Using this method, the bleomycin hydrolase gene (BLMH) was detected as a candidate suppressor gene. We found that 28 of 48 (58.3%) tumor tissues showed BLMH promoter hypermethylation, and its expression(More)
Esophageal cancer ranks sixth in cancer mortality worldwide and patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) have a poor prognosis with a 5-year survival rate of less than 10%. Elucidation of the mechanisms of carcinogenesis and tumor progression in esophageal cancer is urgently required to develop targets for therapy and prognostic biomarkers.(More)
BACKGROUND To identify genes associated with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) pathogenesis, we developed a triple combination array strategy comprising methylation, gene expression, and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) array analysis. METHODS Surgical specimens obtained from a 68-year-old female HCC patient were analyzed by triple combination array, and(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the top five causes of cancer-related deaths worldwide. Recent developments in the treatment of HCC remain insufficient to cure unresectable disease or to prevent HCC. Consistent efforts are, therefore, needed to deepen understanding of pathogenesis of the disease. Genome-wide gene expression profile analyses can now(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the major causes of cancer-related death especially among Asian and African populations. It is urgent that we identify carcinogenesis-related genes to establish an innovative treatment strategy for this disease. Triple-combination array analysis was performed using one pair each of HCC and noncancerous liver samples(More)
