Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) tumor suppressor gene product, neurofibromin, functions in part as a Ras-GAP, a negative regulator of Ras. Neurofibromin is implicated in the neuronal abnormality of NF1 patients; however, the precise cellular function of neurofibromin has yet to be clarified. Using proteomic strategies, we identified a set of(More)
Neurofibromin is a neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) tumor suppressor gene product with a domain that acts as a GTPase-activating protein and functions, in part, as a negative regulator of Ras. Loss of neurofibromin expression in NF1 patients is associated with elevated Ras activity and increased cell proliferation, predisposing to a variety of tumors of the(More)
Aberrant expression of MUC5AC mucin is obvious in cholangiocarcinoma tissues, however, this mucin has never been detected in the serum. Using immunoblotting marked with antibody vs. MUC5AC core protein, we could detect MUC5AC mucin in the serum of 112 from 179 cholangiocarcinoma patients (62.6% sensitivity), two of the 62 with benign hepatobiliary diseases,(More)
All p53 family members are expressed in several isoforms through alternative promoters and alternative splicing. However, the significance of these isoforms is not yet well understood in cholangiocarcinoma (CCA). In this study, we investigated the expression of p53, p63, p73 and their isoforms at the mRNA and protein levels in CCA. The overexpression of(More)
Neurofibromin, a neurofibromatosis type I (NF1) tumor suppressor gene product, has a domain acting as a GTPase activating protein and functions in part as a negative regulator of Ras. Loss of neurofibromin expression in NF1 patients is associated with elevated Ras activity and increased cell proliferation. Therefore, regulation of the function of(More)
Trefoil factor 2 (TFF2) is a member of trefoil factor family found to be overexpressed in many cancers including cholangiocarcinoma (CCA). The majority of studies have focused on wild-type TFF2 (wtTFF2) expression, but information regarding alternative splicing variants of TFF2 mRNA has not been reported. In (More)
