Mucosal-associated invariant T (MAIT) cells play an important physiological role in host pathogen defense and may also be involved in inflammatory disorders and multiple sclerosis. The rarity and inefficient expansion of these cells have hampered detailed analysis and application. Here, we report an induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-based reprogramming(More)
Oxytocin (Oxt) is a key neuropeptide that regulates maternal behaviors as well as social behaviors in mammals. Interestingly, recent studies have shown that the impairment of Oxt signaling is associated with the disturbance of metabolic homeostasis, resulting in obesity and diabetes. However, the molecular mechanism by which Oxt signaling controls metabolic(More)
We report a case of generalized chondrocalcinosis in a 34-year-old man with no familial or medical history of associated diseases. Radiographs revealed calcification of the articular cartilages of the limbs, the fibrous rings around the intervertebral disks, the triangular cartilages of the wrists, and the pubic symphysis. On the basis of the presence of(More)
