The proteasome is a unique protease complex found in all eukaryotic cells and has multiple functions for essential activities. In this work we showed that it is expressed at high level in immature, rapidly growing cells, such as those in early embryonic tissues and cancer cells (Fig. 7). The increase of its expression is down-regulated on differentiation of(More)
A case of recurrent constrictive pericarditis complicated with atrial septal defect (ASD) was operated successfully at our institute. ASD was missed at the time of the first operation. The combination of ASD and constrictive pericarditis is rare and this case is the fifth reported one in Japan. Difficulty in diagnosis of ASD and operative procedure for(More)
The differences among MRI findings were studied in schizophrenic psychoses. The schizophrenics and atypical psychotics had significant reductions in bilateral hippocampal volumes compared to controls, but the two patient groups did not differ from each other. As for ventricle volume, the schizophrenics showed significantly larger temporal horns and third(More)
A rare case of mediastinal liposarcoma was experienced at our institute. A 64-year-old male patient was accidentally found by chest X-ray photo. The tumor was so gigantic and seemed to involve the descending aorta, therefore, it was removed through bilateral thoracotomy. It was well encapsulated and its malignancy resides in that of low grade to be(More)
A 71-year-old male patient was referred to our institute for abnormal mediastinal shadow. It was proved to be squamous cell carcinoma arising in left S1 + 2 and involving distal aortic arch and left subclavian artery (T4N2M0 Stage IIIB). The cancer responded well to the preoperative induction therapy and it was resected completely with associated resection(More)
A 64-year-old male patient was referred to our hospital for massive mitral regurgitation after infective endocarditis. Echocardiography revealed vegetation on the atrial surface of the midst of the anterior mitral leaflet. At operation it was found that the anterior leaflet was perforated due to infection, and the posterior leaflet was prolapsed resulting(More)
