Oligodendrocytes are the myelinating cells of the mammalian central nervous system. In the mouse spinal cord, oligodendrocytes are generated from strictly restricted regions of the ventral ventricular zone. To investigate how they originate from these specific regions, we used an explant culture system of the E12 mouse cervical spinal cord and hindbrain. In(More)
Bendamustine has shown considerable clinical activity against indolent lymphoid malignancies as a single agent or in combination with rituximab, but combination with additional anti-cancer drugs may be required for refractory and/or relapsed cases as well as other intractable tumors. In this study, we attempted to determine suitable anti-cancer drugs to be(More)
The proteasome is a proteolytic machinery that executes the degradation of polyubiquitinated proteins to maintain cellular homeostasis. Proteasome inhibition is a unique and effective way to kill cancer cells because they are sensitive to proteotoxic stress. Indeed, the proteasome inhibitor bortezomib is now indispensable for the treatment of multiple(More)
Oligodendrocytes are myelinating cells in the central nervous system. Recent studies demonstrated that oligodendrocyte progenitor cells are generated from a restricted region in the ventricular zone. In the rodent spinal cord, progenitor cells appear from narrow and bilateral longitudinal columns in the ventral ventricular zone, and then migrate dorsally.(More)
