Two Arabidopsis thaliana extragenic mutations that suppress NaCl hypersensitivity of the sos3-1 mutant were identified in a screen of a T-DNA insertion population in the genetic background of Col-0 gl1 sos3-1. Analysis of the genome sequence in the region flanking the T-DNA left border indicated that sos3-1 hkt1-1 and sos3-1 hkt1-2 plants have allelic(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic nephroureterectomy (LNUx) is prevalent in Japan and throughout the world, but long-term outcome data remain limited. OBJECTIVE To understand the present state of LNUx in Japan, we conducted a multicenter analysis of clinical outcome and long-term cancer control for patients who underwent the procedure. DESIGN, SETTING, AND(More)
A rare case of Frantz's tumor with liver metastasis is reported. An 11-year-old girl had local resection of a Frantz's tumor in the head of the pancreas. Ten years later, she had a recurrence in the pancreatic head, and two liver metastases were also disclosed at reoperation. Pancreaticoduodenectomy and enucleation of metastatic lesions in the liver were(More)
AIMS Recent studies have shown that fused-in-sarcoma (FUS) protein is a component of 'neuronal' intranuclear inclusion bodies (INIBs) in the brains of patients with intranuclear inclusion body disease (INIBD). However, the extent and frequency of FUS-immunoreactive structures in INIBD are uncertain. METHODS We immunohistochemically examined the brain,(More)
This morphometric and morphological study demonstrates 3 categories (types A, B and C) of degenerative feature in the cerebellar dentate nucleus. Type A is characterized by neuronal loss, astrocytosis and granular and/or amorphous argyrophilic change around the neurons and neuronal processes, and this type was thought to be synonymous with the so-called(More)
BACKGROUND Brain metastases (BM) are a common in patients with lung cancer. Although whole-brain radiation therapy (WBRT) is the standard therapy, it may have a risk of decline in cognitive function of patients. In this study, we evaluated the efficacy of gefitinib alone without radiation therapy for the treatment of patients with BM from lung(More)
We report the case of a 68-year-old Japanese man who presented with postrenal azotemia due to bilateral upper ureteral stenosis. The patient's right kidney was nonfunctional; therefore, right nephroureterectomy was performed for the purpose of pathologic diagnosis. Histopathologic examination revealed follicular lymphoma with diffuse change in the ureter.(More)
The authors describe the computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of an 18-year-old man with renal cell carcinoma (RCC) associated with the Xp11.2 translocation/transcription factor E3 (TFE3) gene fusion (Xp11 translocation carcinoma). The lesion was hyperdense on unenhanced CT, hypovascular on contrast-enhanced studies,(More)
A 32-yr-old man was admitted to Anjo Kosei Hospital for the examination of a cystic peritoneal lesion. This patient had a past medical history significant for an appendectomy. Ultrasonography and computed tomography revealed multiple cysts in the abdominal and pelvic cavities. An exploratory laparotomy was performed on July 1, 1993, revealing numerous(More)
BACKGROUND There are few studies on coinfection with genital mycoplasmas and ureaplasmas in men with gonococcal urethritis (GU). The role of these species in postgonococcal urethritis (PGU) is poorly understood. Thus, we conducted a study to determine the prevalence of coinfection with genital mycoplasmas and ureaplasmas among men with GU and to assess the(More)
