Induction of apoptosis as well as necrosis by hypoxia and predominant prevention of apoptosis by Bcl-2 and Bcl-XL.
The molecular mechanism of cell death due to hypoxia has not been elucidated. Our recent observations that overexpression of the anti-apoptotic proto-oncogene bcl-2 and a bcl-2-related gene, bcl-x,Expand

Effect of Smad7 expression on metastasis of mouse mammary carcinoma JygMC(A) cells.
BACKGROUND Transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) facilitates metastasis during the advanced stages of cancer. Smad6, Smad7, and c-Ski block signaling by the TGF-beta superfamily proteins throughExpand

Apoptotic detection methods--from morphology to gene.
To date, many terms have been given for cell death and forgotten before they became widely accepted. Most researchers studying cell death use some terms for cell death that have survived overExpand

MicroRNA-124 inhibits cancer cell growth through PTB1/PKM1/PKM2 feedback cascade in colorectal cancer.
Altered levels and functions of microRNAs (miRs) have been associated with carcinogenesis. In this study, we investigated the role of miR-124 in colorectal adenoma (CRA) and cancer (CRC). TheExpand

Persistent median artery: Cadaveric study and review of the literature
The persistent median artery (PMA) may compress the median nerve (MN) and may be a significant supply of blood to the hand. Two cases of unilateral PMA (4%) were detected during the dissection of 50Expand

Marked prevention of tumor growth and metastasis by a novel immunosuppressive agent, FTY720, in mouse breast cancer models.
FTY720 is a unique immunosuppressive agent that exerts its activity by inducing apoptosis in lymphocytes. We conducted the present study to investigate the effects of FTY720 on cancer growth andExpand

FTY720 induced Bcl-associated and Fas-independent apoptosis in human renal cancer cells in vitro and significantly reduced in vivo tumor growth in mouse xenograft.
BACKGROUND A unique immunosuppressant, FTY720, selectively induces apoptosis in activated lymphocytes, but not in other hematopoietic cells. The potential that this unique mechanism could provideExpand

How fast do gully headcuts retreat
Abstract Gully erosion has important on and off site effects. Therefore, several studies have been conducted over the past decades to quantify gully headcut retreat (GHR) in different environments.Expand

Novel Therapeutic Strategy for Stroke in Rats by Bone Marrow Stromal Cells and ex vivo HGF Gene Transfer with HSV-1 Vector
Occlusive cerebrovascular disease leads to brain ischemia that causes neurological deficits. Here we introduce a new strategy combining mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) and ex vivo hepatocyte growthExpand
