Uptake of external sulfate from the environment and use of internal vacuolar sulfate pools are two important aspects of the acquisition of sulfur for metabolism. In this study, we demonstrated that the vacuolar SULTR4-type sulfate transporter facilitates the efflux of sulfate from the vacuoles and plays critical roles in optimizing the internal distribution(More)
BACKGROUND Metabolites are not only the catalytic products of enzymatic reactions but also the active regulators or the ultimate phenotype of metabolic homeostasis in highly complex cellular processes. The modes of regulation at the metabolome level can be revealed by metabolic networks. We investigated the metabolic network between wild-type and 2 mutant(More)
Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) is a degenerative disease of the central nervous system that leads to death within a few years. Recently, it has been reported that combination therapy with intraparenchymal interferon-alpha (INF-alpha) and intraventricular ribavirin is effective. An 11-year-old SSPE patient whose clinical symptoms progressed(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of CapeOX plus bevacizumab with a planned oxaliplatin stop-and-go strategy in Japanese patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). METHODS Patients with untreated mCRC were treated with 4 cycles of CapeOX plus bevacizumab therapy, followed by capecitabine plus bevacizumab(More)
Aneurysm formation is a potential complication of granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA), previously known as Wegener's granulomatosis. It is a very rare complication, but immediate diagnosis and therapy should be performed because an aneurysm can be life-threatening if it ruptures. An accessory left gastric artery (ALGA) is also a rare variant gastric(More)
