As a base for human transcriptome and functional genomics, we created the “full-length long Japan” (FLJ) collection of sequenced human cDNAs. We determined the entire sequence of 21,243 selected clones and found that 14,490 cDNAs (10,897 clusters) were unique to the FLJ collection. About half of them (5,416) seemed to be protein-coding. Of those, 1,999(More)
To understand how nanomechanical stiffness affects metastatic potential, we studied the relationship between cell migration, a characteristic of metastasis, and cell stiffness using atomic force microscopy (AFM), which can measure stiffness (elasticity) of individual living cells. Migration and cell stiffness of three metastatic B16 melanoma variants(More)
N-linked glycosylation is the most common post-translational modification of G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and is correlated to the localization and function of the receptors depending on each receptor. However, heterogeneity of glycosylation can interfere with protein crystallization. The removal of N-linked glycosylation from membrane proteins(More)
