We previously demonstrated that mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) differentiate into functional kidney cells capable of urine and erythropoietin production, indicating that they may be used for kidney regeneration. However, the viability of MSCs from dialysis patients may be affected under uremic conditions. In this study, we isolated MSCs from the adipose(More)
Small GTPase proteins, including RhoA, RhoB, RhoC, Rac1 and cdc42, are molecules that have significant roles in linking cell shape and cell cycle progression in cyto-skeletal arrangements and mitogenic signaling. Rho GDP dissociation inhibitor 2 (RhoGDI2) has recently been identified as a metastasis suppressor gene in models of bladder cancer. RhoGDI2 has(More)

We report a case of mesothelial cyst protruding from the right femoral ring with suspected endometriosis in a 35-year-old woman, who complained of a lump with a diameter of 6 cm in the right inguinal region. Although she had the hormone therapy during the next 8 months for the diagnosis of extragenital endometriosis, her symptoms did not improve. The(More)
A 76-year-old man presented to our hospital with abdominal distention and loss of appetite. The 10% of weight lost relative to this patient in 1 month. Abdominal computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a giant mass, with a major axis of 23 cm, containing solid components, not involving the upper abdominal organs.(More)
