Antagonistic roles of Wnt5 and the Drl receptor in patterning the Drosophila antennal lobe
Numerous studies have shown that ingrowing olfactory axons exert powerful inductive influences on olfactory map development. From an overexpression screen, we have identified wnt5 as a potentExpand

Lim kinase regulates the development of olfactory and neuromuscular synapses.
Lim Kinase (Limk) belongs to a phylogenetically conserved family of serine/threonine kinases, which have been shown to be potent regulators of the actin cytoskeleton. Despite accumulating evidence ofExpand

Misexpression screen for genes altering the olfactory map in Drosophila
Despite the identification of a number of guidance molecules, a comprehensive picture has yet to emerge to explain the precise anatomy of the olfactory map. From a misexpression screen of 1,515 P{GS}Expand

Degradation and emission of carbonyl sulfide, an atmospheric trace gas, by fungi isolated from forest soil.
Soil is thought to be important both as a source and a sink of carbonyl sulfide (COS) in the troposphere, but the mechanism affecting COS uptake, especially for fungi, remains uncertain. FungalExpand

The eCura system as a novel indicator for the necessity of salvage surgery after non-curative ESD for gastric cancer: A case-control study
Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for early gastric cancer does not always lead to complete cancer resection. The aim of this study was to determine indicators for cancer residue (CR) status inExpand

True esophagogastric junction adenocarcinoma: background of its definition and current surgical trends
The definition of true esophagogastric junction (EGJ) adenocarcinoma and its surgical treatment are debatable. We review the basis for the current definition and the Japanese surgical strategy inExpand

Efficacy of Endoscopic Management for Early Remnant Gastric Cancer: Is Completion Gastrectomy Truly Necessary in Cases with Marginally Noncurative Histopathologic Features?
BackgroundFor patients with early primary gastric cancer, endoscopic management has become a standard of care. However, its efficacy for early remnant gastric cancer (ERGC) remains controversial andExpand

Laparoscopic Suprapancreatic Lymph Node Dissection Using a Systematic Mesogastric Excision Concept for Gastric Cancer
Background Gastrointestinal cancer surgery requires en bloc removal of the primary tumor and organ-specific mesentery 1 , 2 . However, this surgical concept for gastric cancer has not yet beenExpand

Laparoscopic modified lymphadenectomy in gastric cancer surgery using systematic mesogastric excision: a novel technique based on a concept
PurposeRadical surgery for gastrointestinal cancer involves en bloc removal of the primary tumor and organ-specific mesenteries. However, the surgical concept and technique for lymphadenectomy duringExpand
