Regulation and function of aquaporin-1 in glioma cells.
Glioblastoma multiformes (GBMs) express increased aquaporin (AQP) 1 compared to normal brain. AQPs may contribute to edema, cell motility, and shuttling of H(2)O and H(+) from intracellular toExpand

Sphingosine‐1‐phosphate receptor type 1 regulates glioma cell proliferation and correlates with patient survival
Sphingosine‐1‐phosphate (S1P) is a bioactive lipid that signals through a family of G protein‐coupled receptors consisting of 5 members termed S1P1–5, and it regulates cellular proliferation,Expand

The expression level of sphingosine-1-phosphate receptor type 1 is related to MIB-1 labeling index and predicts survival of glioblastoma patients
Although there are many reports on the clinical use of the MIB-1 labeling index (LI), which is a measure of proliferative activity in astrocytomas; its significance varies between studies. There areExpand

Regulation of neotenic differentiation through direct physical contact in the damp-wood termite Hodotermopsis sjostedti
In cooperative societies such as those of ants, honey bees, and termites, the number of reproductives is often regulated by social interactions. In many termite species, helper individuals (i.e.,Expand

Skewed soldier sex ratio in termites: testing the size-threshold hypothesis
Social insect colonies contain multiple phenotypes, i.e. castes, and this caste polyphenism is often linked to sexual dimorphism. Unlike social hymenopterans, both termite sexes are diploid andExpand

Immunohistochemical analysis of hepatocyte growth factor in human coronary atherectomy specimens: comparison with transforming growth factor beta isoforms
Abstract The expression and localization of hepatocyte growth factor/scatter factor (HGF/SF) were examined immunohistochemically in 59 human coronary artery lesions retrieved by directional coronaryExpand

Endogenous secretory receptor for advanced glycation end-products inhibits amyloid-β1-42 uptake into mouse brain.
The cell-surface receptor for advanced glycation end-products (RAGE) has been implicated in the development of diabetic vascular complications and Alzheimer's disease. RAGE has been considered to beExpand

A photoinduced charge transfer composite of graphene oxide and ferrocene.
We demonstrate the formation of a photoinduced charge transfer composite with graphene oxide (GO) and ferrocene (Fc) molecules. Derived insulating GO was partially reduced to improve the conductivityExpand
