Recently, we reported the accelerated gene transfection efficiency of laminin-derived AG73-peptide-labeled polyethylene glycol-modified liposomes (AG73-PEG liposomes) and cell penetrating TAT-peptide labeled PEG liposomes using PEG-modified liposomes, which trap echo-contrast gas, "Bubble liposomes" (BLs), and ultrasound (US) exposure. BLs and US exposure(More)
We have previously developed laminin-derived AG73 peptide-labeled poly(ethylene glycol)-modified liposomes (AG73-PEG liposomes) for selective cancer gene therapy and reported that Bubble liposomes (BLs) and ultrasound (US) exposure could accelerate the endosomal escape of AG73-PEG liposomes, leading to the enhancement of transfection efficiency; however, it(More)
We have previously reported that the transfection efficiency of laminin-derived AG73-peptide labeled polyethyleneglycol-modified liposomes (AG73-PEG liposomes) was enhanced by echo-contrast gas entrapping PEG liposomes (Bubble liposomes, BLs) and ultrasound (US) exposure by improving endosomal escape. However, it has not been well understood whether BLs and(More)
Suramin is an activator of ryanodine receptors and competitively binds to the calmodulin-binding site. In addition, S100A1 and calmodulin compete for the same binding site on ryanodine receptors. We therefore studied the effects of suramin on protein phosphatase 5 (PP5) and S100-activated PP5. In the absence of S100 proteins, suramin bound to the(More)
A 59-year-old man was admitted because of generalized lymphadenopathy with fever and vomiting. His peripheral blood showed leukocytosis with a WBC of 93,500/microliters, and the bone marrow picture revealed a predominance of blast cells. The blasts were negative for peroxidase, alpha-naphthyl butyrate esterase and PAS, and had the phenotype of CD 7, 13 and(More)
Both the rearrangement and the expression of the bcl-2 gene in Japanese hematopoietic tumor cells were studied by Southern and Northern blot hybridizations. The expression of the bcl-2 gene was studied in seven cultured cell lines and twenty clinical samples, including eleven non-lymphoid tumors and nine lymphoid tumors. All lymphoid tumors except one(More)
The changes of expression of oncogenes in the mononuclear cells of MDS case was studied during his clinical course, in series. His bone marrow was considered to maintain its function partly in initial stage, since both peripheral blood and bone marrow responded to clinical episodes. However, his hematopoietic function was gradually impaired with the disease(More)
