Sustained release of vascular endothelial growth factor from calcium-induced alginate hydrogels reinforced by heparin and chitosan.
A possible alternative for immunosuppression is a microencapsulation technique using hydrogels, which have been utilized for cell immobilization and drug delivery systems. Angiogenesis is crucial forExpand

Tauroursodeoxycholate (TUDCA) inhibits neointimal hyperplasia by suppression of ERK via PKCα-mediated MKP-1 induction.
AIMS Hyperplasia of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) after blood vessel injury is one of the major pathophysiological mechanisms associated with neointima. Tauroursodeoxycholate (TUDCA) is aExpand

The viability and function of cryopreserved hepatocyte spheroids with different cryopreservation solutions.
We sought to evaluate the viability and function of cryopreserved hepatocyte spheroids using different cryopreservation solutions in order to elucidate the efficiency of cryopreservation. HepatocytesExpand

Tauroursodeoxycholic Acid, a Bile Acid, Promotes Blood Vessel Repair by Recruiting Vasculogenic Progenitor Cells
Although serum bile acid concentrations are approximately 10 µM in healthy subjects, the crosstalk between the biliary system and vascular repair has never been investigated. In this study,Expand

ARS-interacting multi-functional protein 1 induces proliferation of human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells by accumulation of β-catenin via fibroblast growth factor receptor 2-mediated
ARS-Interacting Multi-functional Protein 1 (AIMP1) is a cytokine that is involved in the regulation of angiogenesis, immune activation, and fibroblast proliferation. In this study, fibroblast growthExpand

A Novel Fringe Field Switching Mode with 3-partition Pixel Slit
We proposed a novel fringe field switching (FFS) liquid crystal (LC) mode with a 3-partition pixel slit. In this mode, a pixel branch is partitioned into 3 areas, namely, two edges and a center,Expand

Study on Reverse Twist Depending on Rubbing Direction for Fringe-Field Switching Mode
We studied the reverse twist near the pixel edge depending on the rubbing direction for the fringe-field switching (FFS) mode. At the active region, liquid crystal (LC) dynamics and transmittance areExpand

Color Shift Free Newly Two-Domain Fringe-Field Switching Mode
The fringe-field switching (FFS) mode is a representative mode exhibiting both a wide viewing angle and high transmittance due to the in-plane rotation of the liquid crystal (LC) director. However,Expand

Effect of Horizontal Electric Field Generated by Data Signal on Disclination Lines near Pixel Edge in Fringe Field Switching Mode
We have studied the dynamic stability of a liquid crystal (LC) in an adjacent active region near the edge of a pixel slit according to the horizontal electric field generated by the data signal forExpand
