To identify genes aberrantly expressed in the brain of individuals with Alzheimer's Disease (AD), we analyzed RNA extracts from the hippocampus and cerebellum from 19 AD patients and 15 age- and sex-matched control subjects. Our analysis identified a number of genes that were over-expressed or under-expressed specifically in AD hippocampus. Among these(More)
It has been suggested that clec14a may be involved in tumor angiogenesis. However, a molecular mechanism has not been clearly identified. In this study, we show for the first time that C-type lectin-like domain (CTLD) of clec14a may be important for regulating cell migration and filopodia formation. Using phage display technology, recombinant human(More)
It has been thought that when a hormone binds to a receptor, the liganded receptor activates itself and generates hormone signals, such as the cAMP signal and the inositol phosphate signal (cis-activation). We describe that a liganded LH receptor or FSH receptor molecule is capable of intermolecularly activating nonliganded receptors (trans-activation).(More)
Shoc2 is a positive regulator of signaling to extracellular signal-regulated protein kinases 1 and 2 (ERK1/2). Shoc2 is also proposed to interact with RAS and Raf-1 in order to accelerate ERK1/2 activity. To understand the mechanisms by which Shoc2 regulates ERK1/2 activation by the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), we dissected the role of Shoc2(More)
Endothelin-2 (EDN2)-mediated contraction has been proposed as a final mechanical signal facilitating ovulation. The objectives herein were to determine (1) whether ovarian endothelins were increased before ovulation; (2) whether a specific endothelin-converting enzyme (ECE) was mediating their production; (3) which receptor was facilitating ovarian(More)
The Suppressor of Clear, Caenorhabditis elegans Homolog (SHOC2) is a scaffold protein that positively modulates activity of the RAS/ERK1/2 MAP kinase signaling cascade. We set out to understand the ERK1/2 pathway transcriptional response transduced through the SHOC2 scaffolding module. This data article describes raw gene expression within triplicates of(More)
Estrogen receptor-α (ESR1) is an important transcriptional regulator in the mammalian oviduct, however ESR1-dependent regulation of the transcriptome of this organ is not well defined, especially at the genomic level. The objective of this study was therefore to investigate estradiol- and ESR1-dependent regulation of the transcriptome of the oviduct using(More)
