Lipid rafts, specialized membrane microdomains enriched in sphingolipids and cholesterol, have been shown to function as signaling platforms in T cells. Surface raft expression is known to be increased in human T cells upon activation, and this increased raft expression may account for efficient signaling capability and decreased dependency for(More)
Glycosyltransferases are present in the Golgi apparatus in a membrane-bound form and are released from cells after cleavage by certain proteases. Beta1,6-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase V (GnT-V), which is cleaved and secreted from the cells, is involved in the biosynthesis of beta1-6GlcNAc branching on N-glycans and has been implicated in tumor progression(More)
This study was aimed at clarifying the effect of exposure to N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP) on workers' health. Fifteen male NMP-exposed workers and 15 referent male workers were recruited for this study. Exposure concentrations were assessed by determining NMP in the breathing zones and urinary NMP. Clinical examinations, motor and sensory nerve conduction(More)
