Steatosis, i.e., the accumulation of fat in hepatocytes, plays an important role in the progression of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). It has been shown that STAT3 activation is involved in a decrease of lipid accumulation while C∕EBP is correlated with an increase of fat content and steatosis. It is known that STAT3 and C∕EBP are activated by(More)
The RON tyrosine kinase receptor is under investigation as a novel target in pancreatic cancer. While RON mutations are uncommon, RON isoforms are produced in cancer cells via a variety of mechanisms. In this study we sought to: 1) characterize RON isoform expression in pancreatic cancer, 2) investigate mechanisms that regulate isoform expression, and 3)(More)
Because of the fluid-filled lungs in the fetus, the ultrasound beam can penetrate to the root of the pulmonary artery perpendicularly. Using M-mode echocardiography, the following dimensions were measured: the pulmonary and aortic valve excursion in 19 fetuses, and the pulmonary and aortic root internal diameter in 70 fetuses, between 18 and 42 weeks,(More)
