INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to investigate the association between the variation in expression profile of clock genes and obesity using peripheral blood mononuclear (PMN) cells. MATERIAL AND METHODS The subjects comprised 10 obese patients and 10 healthy volunteers. Blood was collected at different time-points during the day and levels of blood(More)
Gene amplification and/or overexpression of the transcription factor c-MYC, which binds to the E-box sequence (5'-CACGTG-3'), has been observed in many human tumors. In this study, we have designed 5 pyrrole-imidazole (PI) polyamides recognizing E-box, and found that, among them, Myc-6 significantly suppresses malignant phenotypes of human osteosarcoma MG63(More)
The presence of inflammation decreases local anesthetic efficacy, especially in dental anesthesia. Although inflammatory acidosis is most frequently cited as the cause of such clinical phenomena, this has not been experimentally proved. We verified the acidosis mechanism by studying the drug and membrane lipid interaction under acidic conditions together(More)
BACKGROUND Anderson's Disease (AD)/Chylomicron Retention Disease (CMRD) is a rare hereditary hypocholesterolemic disorder characterized by a malabsorption syndrome with steatorrhea, failure to thrive and the absence of chylomicrons and apolipoprotein B48 post-prandially. All patients studied to date exhibit a mutation in the SAR1B gene, which codes for an(More)
We report a preclinical study of a pyrrole-imidazole (PI) polyamide that targets the human transforming growth factor (hTGF)-β1 gene as a novel transcriptional gene silencer in a common marmoset primate model. We designed and then synthesized PI polyamides to target the hTGF-β1 promoter. We examined effects of seven PI polyamides (GB1101-1107) on the(More)
Discussion papers are research materials circulated by their authors for purposes of information and discussion. They have not necessarily undergone formal peer review. Abstract International technology cooperation for climate change mitigation has recently gained attention as a promising component of the post-2012 climate regime. Compared to(More)
Implantation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) has recently been reported to repair tissue injuries through anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects. We established dedifferentiated fat (DFAT) cells that show identical characteristics to MSCs. We examined the effects of 106 of DFAT cells infused through renal artery or tail vein on monoclonal antibody(More)
We develop a motion-blur-free microscope for shooting non-blurred videos of moving objects by implementing a frame-by-frame intermittent tracking method with a microscopic high-speed tracking system that controls the position of the objective lens using high-frame-rate video processing. With our tracking method, the control target alternates at several(More)
