BACKGROUND Aberrant expression of Brahma-related gene-1 (BRG1), a core component of the SWI/SNF chromatin-remodelling complex, has been implicated in cancer development; however, the biological significance of BRG1 in colorectal carcinoma (CRC) remains unknown. METHODS In CRC tissues, expression of BRG1 and Brahma (BRM) was investigated(More)
To search for the signalling pathways in lung cancer relevant to its aggressive behaviour, we studied tyrosine phosphorylated proteins in lung cancer cell lines and surgical specimens. We found that the profiles of protein phosphorylation were closely matched among these cell lines and cancer tissues of different histological origins, and 100-130 kDa(More)
A skin mucus lectin exhibiting a homodimeric structure and an S-S bond between subunits of ~40 kDa was purified from flathead Platycephalus indicus (Scorpaeniformes). This lectin, named FHL (FlatHead Lectin), exhibited mannose-specific activity in a Ca(2+)-dependent manner. Although FHL showed no homology to any previously reported lectins, it did exhibit(More)
