Usually, robots have some sensors that measure the distance between the robots and any obstacles, for example, ultrasonic sensors, infrared distance sensors, and etc. On the other hand, although animals and insects do not have distance sensors, they can behave adaptively in unknown environments. The mechanism of adaptive behavior has been studied in(More)
Mas-related G-protein coupled receptor member D (MRGPRD) is a G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) which belongs to the Mas-related GPCRs expressed in the dorsal root ganglia (DRG). In this study, we investigated two novel ligands in addition to beta-alanine: (1) beta-aminoisobutyric acid, a physiologically active substance, with which possible relation to(More)
To elucidate the function of MAS-related GPCR, member D (MRGD) in cancers, we investigated the in vitro and in vivo oncogenic function of MRGD using murine fibroblast cell line NIH3T3 in which MRGD is stably expressed. The expression pattern of MRGD in clinical samples was also analyzed. We found that overexpression of MRGD in NIH3T3 induced focus formation(More)
