Tea catechins prevent the development of atherosclerosis in apoprotein E-deficient mice.
Green tea contains various antioxidative flavan-3ols (tea catechins), such as (-)-epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg, the major catechin), which exert potent inhibitory effects on LDL oxidation in vitro… Expand
Identification of endometrioid endometrial carcinoma-associated microRNAs in tissue and plasma.
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to identify a set of endometrioid endometrial carcinoma EEC-associated microRNAs (miRNAs) in tissue and plasma, and evaluate their clinical significance. METHODS A set of… Expand
Characterization of placenta‐specific microRNAs in fetal growth restriction pregnancy
The aim of this study was to characterize placenta‐specific microRNAs in fetal growth restriction (FGR) pregnancy.
Identification of pregnancy-associated microRNAs in maternal plasma.
BACKGROUND Several placental microRNAs (miRNAs) have been identified as pregnancy-associated molecules with the potential for use in estimating the condition of the placenta. Our understanding of… Expand
Increased level of cell‐free placental mRNA in a subgroup of placenta previa that needs hysterectomy
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether cell‐free placental mRNA levels have the potential to predict a placenta previa resulting in hysterectomy.
Placental mRNA in maternal plasma and its clinical application to the evaluation of placental status in a pregnant woman with placenta previa-percreta.
Fetal and/or placental mRNA in maternal plasma has been detected during pregnancy, and such mRNA tends to be stable against degradation (1). A quantitative study of plasma mRNA for γ-globin and… Expand

Insulin-like growth factor (IGF) -I is one of the candidates for cardiac hypertrophy induced by &bgr;-adrenergic stimulation. However, the mechanisms by which the biologic actions of IGF-I are… Expand
Microarray comparative genomic hybridization (CGH)-based prenatal diagnosis for chromosome abnormalities using cell-free fetal DNA in amniotic fluid
AbstractCell-free fetal DNA (cffDNA) in the supernatant of amniotic fluid, which is usually discarded, can be used as a sample for prenatal diagnosis. For rapid prenatal diagnosis of frequent… Expand
Inhibition of protein prenylation by patulin
The antibiotic patulin was found to inhibit protein prenylation in mouse FM3A cells. Thus, the agent reduced incorporation of [3H]mevalonate into proteins by 50% at a concentration of 7 μM. In a… Expand
