Oncogenic Ras induces cell transformation and promotes an invasive phenotype. The tumor suppressor p53 has a suppressive role in Ras-driven invasion. However, its mechanism remains poorly understood. Here we show that p53 induces activation of the mitochondrial protease high-temperature requirement A2 (HtrA2; also known as Omi) and prevents Ras-driven(More)
Three cases of carcinosarcoma of the salivary gland, two in the submandibular gland, and one in the parotid, were investigated with CT and exhibited a variety of findings. The density of the tumors was lower than that of normal submandibular tissue. A calcification was found in one case. One case showed extensive lymphadenopathy. The parotid lesion had low(More)
Terahertz (THz) imaging has a number of potential applications in medical imaging and diagnosis. Here, we demonstrate the THz images on the diseased and the corresponding normal tissues from 14 samples. The liver cancer cells are planted by subcutaneous injection into BALB/c which share high degree homology with human. Subcutaneous tumors and nearby normal(More)
Cell motility requires the precise coordination of cell polarization, lamellipodia formation, adhesion, and force generation. LKB1 is a multi-functional serine/threonine kinase that associates with actin at the cellular leading edge of motile cells and suppresses FAK. We sought to understand how LKB1 coordinates these multiple events by systematically(More)
5,6-dihydroxytryptamine was microinjected into the nucleus raphe magus (NRM) of rats. The sections of upper cervical segments were processed for immunoreactive substance P (SP). The degenerated axon terminals and immunoreactive fibers were identified by electron microscopy. The results show that the degenerated axon terminals and immunoreactive positive(More)
