We investigated whether direct tissue matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry (MS) analysis on lipid may assist with the histopathologic diagnosis of non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLCs). Twenty-one pairs of frozen, resected NSCLCs and adjacent normal tissue samples were initially analyzed using histology-directed, MALDI MS.(More)
The interaction between fish myoglobin (Mb) and natural actomyosin (NAM) extracted from fresh and frozen fish was studied. The quantity of soluble Mb in Mb-NAM extracted was less in frozen than in fresh fish (P < 0.05). However, no differences were observed in Mb that remained in solution following preparation of Mb-NAM from frozen whole fish vs frozen(More)
Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry (MS) has been demonstrated to be useful for molecular profiling of common solid tumors. Using recently developed MALDI matrices for lipid profiling, we evaluated whether direct tissue MALDI MS analysis on proteins and lipids may classify human breast cancer samples according to the(More)
BACKGROUND We evaluated whether direct tissue matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry (MS) analysis of lipids may distinguish intrahepatic cholangiocarcinomas from adjacent normal tissue and from other adenocarcinomas that frequently metastasize to liver. METHODS Four pairs of frozen surgical specimens of cholangiocarcinomas(More)
Direct measurements of intracellular pH was made with recessed-tip pH microelectrodes in fertilized eggs of the frog, Xenopus laevis, from approximately 1 h after fertilization to mid-blastula. The intracellular pH just before first cleavage was 7.65 +/- 0.04 (SD; n = 9). By stage 5 to the middle of stage 6, average intracellular pH was 7.70 +/- 0.06 (SD; n(More)
This study was undertaken to evaluate protein and lipid profiles of ovarian cancer tissue samples. Twenty-three frozen ovarian cancer samples and 6 adjacent normal samples were analyzed using histology-directed, matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry. Sinapinic acid and 2, 5-dihydroxybenzoic acid/α-cyano-4-hydroxycinnamic acid were(More)
KAI1 COOH-terminal interacting tetraspanin (KITENIN) contributes to tumor invasion and metastasis in various cancers. The aim of current study was to evaluate whether KITENIN affects tumor cell invasion and prognosis in human colorectal cancers. We investigated the biologic role of KITENIN on tumor cell invasion by using small interfering RNA in Caco2,(More)
The oxidation of oxymyoglobin (OxyMb) to metmyoglobin (MetMb) is responsible for fresh meat discoloration. Glutathione (GSH) is an important tripeptide reductant that can protect lipid and protein from oxidation. The objective of this research was to investigate the effect of GSH on MetMb formation in vitro and in bovine skeletal muscle cytosol. Equine(More)
The molecular mechanism underlying microRNA (miR)-17 overexpression has not been clearly evaluated in gastric cancer. We aimed to evaluate the functional roles of miR-17 in gastric cancer and test its viability as a therapeutic target. We conducted comparative genomic hybridization and expression array analyses on human gastric cancer tissue samples, as(More)
