HJURP Is a Cell-Cycle-Dependent Maintenance and Deposition Factor of CENP-A at Centromeres
The histone H3 variant CenH3, called CENP-A in humans, is central in centromeric chromatin to ensure proper chromosome segregation. In the absence of an underlying DNA sequence, it is still unclearExpand

AXIN1 mutations in hepatocellular carcinomas, and growth suppression in cancer cells by virus-mediated transfer of AXIN1
The Wnt signalling pathway is essential for development and organogenesis. Wnt signalling stabilizes β-catenin, which accumulates in the cytoplasm, binds to T-cell factor (TCF; also known asExpand

Genome-wide association study of hematological and biochemical traits in a Japanese population
We report genome-wide association studies for hematological and biochemical traits from ∼14,700 Japanese individuals. We identified 60 associations for 8 hematological traits and 29 associations forExpand

Activation of Holliday junction recognizing protein involved in the chromosomal stability and immortality of cancer cells.
We identified a novel gene HJURP (Holliday junction-recognizing protein) whose activation seemed to play a pivotal role in the immortality of cancer cells. HJURP was considered a possible downstreamExpand

Variation in TP63 is associated with lung adenocarcinoma susceptibility in Japanese and Korean populations
Lung cancer is the most common cause of death from cancer worldwide, and its incidence is increasing in East Asian and Western countries. To identify genetic factors that modify the risk of lungExpand

A genome-wide association study identifies variants in the HLA-DP locus associated with chronic hepatitis B in Asians
Chronic hepatitis B is a serious infectious liver disease that often progresses to liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma; however, clinical outcomes after viral exposure vary enormously amongExpand

Increases of amphiregulin and transforming growth factor-alpha in serum as predictors of poor response to gefitinib among patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancers.
Serum levels of amphiregulin and transforming growth factor-alpha (TGF-alpha), which were identified previously to be expressed at high levels in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with poor responseExpand

ANLN plays a critical role in human lung carcinogenesis through the activation of RHOA and by involvement in the phosphoinositide 3-kinase/AKT pathway.
Gene expression profile analysis of non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC) and subsequent functional analyses revealed that human ANLN, a homologue of anillin, an actin-binding protein in Drosophila,Expand

Mutations truncating the EP300 acetylase in human cancers
The EP300 protein is a histone acetyltransferase that regulates transcription via chromatin remodelling and is important in the processes of cell proliferation and differentiation. EP300 acetylationExpand

Expression profiles of non-small cell lung cancers on cDNA microarrays: Identification of genes for prediction of lymph-node metastasis and sensitivity to anti-cancer drugs
To investigate genes involved in pulmonary carcinogenesis and those related to sensitivity of nonsmall cell lung cancers (NSCLCs) to therapeutic drugs, we performed cDNA microarray analysis of 37Expand
