Glutathione S-transferase (GST) is one of the most important phase II drug-metabolizing enzymes, catalyzing the conjugation of electrophilic substrates to glutathione. Unlike in humans, a surprisingly limited number of GST genes have been identified in monkeys. The identification of additional GST genes in this model system would prove to be advantageous,(More)
Origin of exocrine pancreatic cells from nestin-positive precursors in developing mouse pancreas 15 Ce-Y14 and MAG-1, components of the exon–exon junction complex, are required for embryogenesis and germline sexual switching in Caenorhabditis elegans 27 H.

A 3-year-old girl with no particular medical history complained of a stomachache and died on the way to the hospital. The autopsy revealed marked right ventricular hypertrophy and dilation with no other cardiac abnormalities. Microscopically, the pulmonary small arteries showed marked medial hypertrophy and varying degrees of intimal and adventitial(More)
Ppp6c, which encodes the catalytic subunit of phosphoprotein phosphatase 6 (PP6), is conserved among eukaryotes from yeast to humans. In mammalian cells, PP6 targets IκBε for degradation, activates DNA-dependent protein kinase to trigger DNA repair, and is reportedly required for normal mitosis. Recently, Ppp6c mutations were identified as candidate drivers(More)
A man in his 40s was found unconscious on a sofa in a communal residence for people with various disabilities. He appeared to have drunk 800 ml of undiluted citric acid from a commercial plastic bottle. The instructions on the label of the beverage specified that the beverage be diluted 20- to 30-fold before consumption. The patient was admitted to an(More)
