BACKGROUND Reducing sedentary time and increasing lifestyle activities, including light-intensity activity, may be an option to help prevent metabolic syndrome (MetS). The purpose of the present study was to examine whether objectively measured light-intensity lifestyle activity and sedentary time is associated with MetS, independent of moderate-vigorous(More)
BACKGROUND Wnt3a regulates a canonical signaling pathway in early development that controls the nuclear accumulation of beta-catenin and its activation of Lef/Tcf-sensitive transcription of developmentally important genes. RESULTS Using totipotent mouse F9 teratocarcinoma cells expressing Frizzled-1 and biochemical analyses, we detail the influence of(More)
BACKGROUND HIV-1 and all retroviruses are related to retroelements of simpler organisms such as the yeast Ty elements. Recent work has suggested that the yeast retroelement Ty1 replicates via an unexpected RNA lariat intermediate in cDNA synthesis. The putative genomic RNA lariat intermediate is formed by a 2'-5' phosphodiester bond, like that found in(More)
BACKGROUND Although many studies have reported an association between self-reported physical activity and metabolic syndrome (MetS), there is limited information on the optimal level of physical activity required to prevent MetS. This study aimed to determine the association between objectively measured physical activity and MetS in middle-aged Japanese(More)
BACKGROUND Wnt3a stimulates cellular trafficking of key signaling elements (e.g., Axin, Dishevelled-2, beta-catenin, and glycogen synthase kinase-3beta) and primitive endoderm formation in mouse F9 embryonic teratocarcinoma cells. RESULTS The role of phosphoprotein phosphatase-2A in signaling of the Wnt/beta-catenin/Lef-Tcf-sensitive gene activation(More)
UNLABELLED BACKGROUND Dishevelled-3 (Dvl3) is a multivalent scaffold essential to cell signaling in development. Dsh/Dvls enable a myriad of protein-protein interactions in Wnt signaling. In the canonical Wnt/β-catenin pathway specifically, Dvl3 polymerizes to form dynamic protein aggregates, so-called "signalsomes", which propagate signals from the Wnt(More)
