The laminin alpha 1 chain carboxyl-terminal globular domain has been identified as a site of multiple biological activities. Using a systematic screening for cell binding sites with 113 overlapping synthetic peptide beads that covered this domain, we found 19 potential active sequences. Corresponding synthetic peptides were evaluated for direct cell(More)
Laminin-1, a multifunctional glycoprotein of the basement membrane, consists of three different subunits, alpha1, beta1, and gamma1 chains. Previously, we used synthetic peptides to screen for biologically active sequences in the laminin alpha1 chain C-terminal globular domain (G domain) and identified several cell binding sequences (Nomizu, M., Kim, W. H.,(More)
OBJECTIVES Serous cystic neoplasm (SCN) is a cystic neoplasm of the pancreas whose natural history is poorly known. The purpose of the study was to attempt to describe the natural history of SCN, including the specific mortality. DESIGN Retrospective multinational study including SCN diagnosed between 1990 and 2014. RESULTS 2622 patients were included.(More)
BACKGROUND Capecitabine (Xeloda) is a novel, oral, selectively tumor-activated fluoropyrimidine with proven activity in the treatment of advanced colorectal cancer. This trial was conducted to evaluate the efficacy, safety and feasibility of capecitabine in previously untreated patients with advanced and/or metastatic gastric cancer, with a view to(More)
Brain metastasis from epithelial ovarian carcinoma (EOC) is managed by a multimodal treatment approach. Thus, to determine the prognostic factors associated with this situation is important for management decisions regarding the type of treatment and aggressiveness of treatment. From 1995 to 2005, 13 patients with brain metastases resulting from EOC(More)
p21Waf1 (p21), p27Kip1 (p27) and cyclin D1 have recently been reported as useful prognostic markers for patients with breast carcinoma. However, studies on these cell cycle regulators in ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) have been extremely limited. Therefore, we studied the immunohistochemical expression of p21, p27 and cyclin D1 proteins in 49 DCIS cases(More)
We report here that the DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK) affects the molecular fate of the recombinant adeno-associated virus (rAAV) genome in skeletal muscle. rAAV-human alpha1-antitrypsin (rAAV-hAAT) vectors were delivered by intramuscular injection to either C57BL/6 (DNA-PKcs(+)) or C57BL/6-SCID [severe combined immunodeficient (SCID), DNA-PKcs(-)](More)
Recombinant adeno-associated virus (AAV) vectors have been used to transduce murine skeletal muscle as a platform for secretion of therapeutic proteins. The utility of this approach for treating alpha-1-antitrypsin (AAT) deficiency was tested in murine myocytes in vitro and in vivo. AAV vectors expressing the human AAT gene from either the cytomegalovirus(More)
Phosphorylated AKT (pAKT) is a major contributor to radioresistance in human cancers. The aim of this study was to investigate the association of pAKT expression and radiation resistance in cervical cancer. A retrospective review was made of the records of 27 women who received primary radiation therapy due to locally advanced cervical cancer (LACC) with(More)
The metabolism of D-xylose in Escherichia coli K-12 is known to be mediated by the xylAB gene. However, the nearby xylFGHR genes were found by genome sequencing and predicted to be responsible for transport and regulation for xylose based on their sequence similarities to other functionally related genes. Here, we investigated transcriptional organization(More)
