RANKL‐Induced Expression of Tetraspanin CD9 in Lipid Raft Membrane Microdomain Is Essential for Cell Fusion During Osteoclastogenesis
We showed that CD9, a member of tetraspanin superfamily proteins, is expressed in a specific membrane microdomain, called “lipid raft,” and is crucial for cell fusion during osteoclastogenesis afterExpand

A Methodology to Improve Ground-Motion Prediction Equations by Including Path Corrections
Path effects that are unique to the source-site geometry increase the uncertainties in ground-motion prediction equations (GMPEs). A methodology is proposed to deal with this issue. First a GMPE isExpand

RGS18 Acts as a Negative Regulator of Osteoclastogenesis by Modulating the Acid‐Sensing OGR1/NFAT Signaling Pathway
We showed that RGS18, a myeloid lineage‐specific RGS protein that is inhibited after activation of the RANK/RANKL system, is a negative regulator of osteoclastogenesis. RGS18 acts through an externalExpand

Effect of low-level boron doping on oxidation behavior of polyimide-derived carbon films
Abstract The oxidation behavior of polyimide-derived carbon films doped with boron in low levels (up to 1.23×10−2 B/C) was investigated by means of thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). It was observedExpand

Dissociation and dispersion of claudin-3 from the tight junction could be one of the most sensitive indicators of reflux esophagitis in a rat model of the disease
BackgroundThe aim of this study was to characterize pathological lesions of the esophageal epithelial tight junction (TJ) complex in a rat reflux esophagitis (RE) model in a search for a reliableExpand
