Human Lats2, a novel serine/threonine kinase, is a member of the Lats kinase family that includes the Drosophila tumour suppressor lats/warts. Lats1, a counterpart of Lats2, is phosphorylated in mitosis and localized to the mitotic apparatus. However, the regulation, function and intracellular distribution of Lats2 remain unclear. Here, we show that Lats2(More)
Signals from micromere descendants play a crucial role in sea urchin development. In this study, we demonstrate that these micromere descendants express HpTb, a T-brain homolog of Hemicentrotus pulcherrimus. HpTb is expressed transiently from the hatched blastula stage through the mesenchyme blastula stage to the gastrula stage. By a combination of embryo(More)
Tumor suppressor Lats2 is a member of the conserved Dbf2 kinase family. It localizes to the centrosome and has been implicated in regulation of the cell cycle and apoptosis. However, the in vivo function of this kinase remains unclear. Here, we show that complete disruption of the gene encoding Lats2 in mice causes developmental defects in the nervous(More)
INTRODUCTION Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors are widely used to treat lung adenocarcinomas with EGFR-activating mutations. However, half of the patients acquire resistance because of the gatekeeper T790M mutation. Noninvasive mutation detection system is desired considering the difficulty in obtaining tissue specimens(More)
INTRODUCTION : Detection of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations is indispensable to determine an appropriate lung cancer treatment. Although retreatment often prolongs survival, how to select the appropriate population for retreatment has not been clarified. METHODS : We used novel methods to identify EGFR mutations: wild inhibiting(More)
This article reports the treatment of a maxillary left central incisor geminated with a supernumerary tooth. A patient having labial swelling around the maxillary incisors was referred to this hospital for diagnosis and endodontic treatment of the maxillary left central incisor. Clinical and radiographic examinations revealed a tooth having two roots and(More)
Re-challenge with epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKI) has been suggested to potentially improve survival in certain populations of patients with advanced lung cancer, but predictive markers for the success of EGFR-TKI re-challenge have not been identified. The present study analyzed 16 re-challenges with EGFR-TKI(More)
S-6436 is a new preparation of sustained release cephalexin. Twenty-eight patients with urinary tract infections were orally given 500mg of S-6436 twice a day for about 7 days, and the following results were obtained: 1) Excellent clinical responses were observed in 8 cases, good in 18 cases and failure in 2 cases. Effectiveness was 93%. 2) As for the side(More)
