Vinexin beta regulates the anchorage dependence of ERK2 activation stimulated by epidermal growth factor.
ERK is activated by soluble growth factors in adherent cells. However, activation of ERK is barely detectable and not sufficient for cell proliferation in non-adherent cells. Here, we show thatExpand

The ground glass opacity component can be eliminated from the T-factor assessment of lung adenocarcinoma.
OBJECTIVES The radiological ground glass opacity (GGO) component of an adenocarcinoma pathologically reflects a non-invasive adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS). Measuring the tumour diameter to include theExpand

Autocrine activation of cultured macrophages by brain-derived neurotrophic factor.
To elucidate a significance of the expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in the activated microglia/macrophages of the injured central nervous system, we examined BDNF actions on orExpand

Robustness of robot programs generated by genetic programming
The goal of this research is to study whether robot programs which are generated by means of genetic programming (GP) are robust. The simulated robot task is a box moving problem. In order to testExpand

Stimulation of production of glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor and nitric oxide by lipopolysaccharide with different dose-responsiveness in cultured rat macrophages.
To understand the molecular basis of inflammation-induced neurotrophic influences, we investigated the effects of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) on production of glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factorExpand

Food restriction in pregnant mice can induce changes in histone modifications and suppress gene expression in fetus.
Biological responses to environmental effects are mediated through epigenetic changes such as chemical modifications of the histone tails and DNA (5-cytosine) methylation. We report that dietaryExpand

Understanding congenital heart defects through abdominal fetal electrocardiography: Case reports and clinical implications
Aims:  Congenital heart defects are the most common fetal structural anomalies of which a significant number remain unrecognized during postnatal life. Fetal electrocardiography (FECG) is an idealExpand
