Causal Relationship between the Loss of RUNX3 Expression and Gastric Cancer
Runx3/Pebp2alphaC null mouse gastric mucosa exhibits hyperplasias due to stimulated proliferation and suppressed apoptosis in epithelial cells, and the cells are resistant to growth-inhibitory andExpand
Molecular characterization of a novel metabotropic glutamate receptor mGluR5 coupled to inositol phosphate/Ca2+ signal transduction.
A cDNA clone for a new metabotropic glutamate receptor, mGluR5, was isolated through polymerase chain reaction-mediated DNA amplification by using primer sequences conserved among the metabotropicExpand
SOCS-1 participates in negative regulation of LPS responses.
SOCS-1 is a negative regulatory molecule of the JAK-STAT signal cascade. Here, we demonstrate that SOCS-1 is a critical downregulating factor for LPS signal pathways. SOCS-1 expression was promptlyExpand
Human Fas ligand: gene structure, chromosomal location and species specificity.
Fas ligand (FasL) is a 40 kDa type II membrane protein belonging to the tumor necrosis factor family, which induces apoptosis by binding to its receptor, Fas. In this report, we isolated theExpand
Internal tandem duplication of the FLT3 gene is preferentially seen in acute myeloid leukemia and myelodysplastic syndrome among various hematological malignancies. A study on a large series of
In this study, we examined a large number of patients to clarify the distribution and frequency of a recently described FLT3 tandem duplication among hematopoietic malignancies, including 112 acuteExpand
The Ig heavy chain gene is frequently involved in chromosomal translocations in multiple myeloma and plasma cell leukemia as detected by in situ hybridization.
Chromosome rearrangement of 14q32.33 has recurrently occurred with variable partner sites, including 11q13.3, 8q24.1, 18q21.3, and 6p21.1 in multiple myeloma (MM). To assess the actual incidence ofExpand
Tumour-amplified kinase BTAK is amplified and overexpressed in gastric cancers with possible involvement in aneuploid formation
Our recent analysis of gastric cancers using comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) revealed a novel high frequent copy number increase in the long arm of chromosome 20. Tumour-amplified kinase BTAKExpand
Fusion of MOZ and p300 histone acetyltransferases in acute monocytic leukemia with a t(8;22)(p11;q13) chromosome translocation
Histone acetyltransferase p300 functions as a transcriptional co-activator which interacts with a number of transcription factors. Monocytic leukemia zinc finger protein (MOZ) has histoneExpand
The insulin-like growth factor II receptor gene is mutated in genetically unstable cancers of the endometrium, stomach, and colorectum.
Disruption of the DNA mismatch repair system, characterized by microsatellite instability (MI), plays an important role in the course of human carcinogenesis. Repetitive sequences constitute targetsExpand
Tandem duplications of the FLT3 receptor gene are associated with leukemic transformation of myelodysplasia
We recently reported an internal tandem duplication of the human flt3 receptor gene (FLT3) as a somatic mutation in 17% of acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). The present study revealed the duplicationExpand
