Sonic hedgehog (Shh) is a morphogen involved in many aspects of patterning of the gut during embryogenesis and in gastric fundic gland homeostasis in the adult. Intestinal metaplastic change of the gastric epithelium is associated with the loss of Shh expression, and mice that lack Shh expression show intestinal transformation of the gastric mucosa. The(More)
BACKGROUND Robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALP) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure for prostate cancer. During RALP, the patient must be in a steep Trendelenburg (head-down) position, which leads to a significant increase in intraocular pressure (IOP). The association of RALP with visual field sensitivity, however, has not been(More)
The morphologies of ectodermal organs are shaped by appropriate combinations of several deformation modes, such as invagination and anisotropic tissue elongation. However, how multicellular dynamics are coordinated during deformation processes remains to be elucidated. Here, we developed a four-dimensional (4D) analysis system for tracking cell movement and(More)
Drug resistance is one of the problems severely limiting chemotherapy in cancer patients. Thus, it is very important to develop new drugs that are effective against drug-resistant tumour cells. The novel anti-tumour agent NK109 has been developed from benzo[c]phenanthridine derivatives by Nippon Kayaku (Tokyo, Japan). We have confirmed that NK109 shows(More)
