Here we show a novel pathway of transcriptional regulation of a DNA-binding transcription factor by coupled interaction and modification (e.g., acetylation) through the DNA-binding domain (DBD). The oncogenic regulator SET was isolated by affinity purification of factors interacting with the DBD of the cardiovascular transcription factor KLF5. SET(More)
BACKGROUND Today most patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) can be expected to survive into adulthood. Reports regarding the number of adults with CHD in Japan are scarce. Our study aims to define the number of these adults. MATERIAL AND METHODS The estimated number of infants born in Japan with major CHDs since 1947 was calculated together with(More)
In vitro studies were carried out to identify the major contribution of CYP2C8, CYP2D6 and CYP3A4 to the metabolism of perospirone (cis-N-[4-[4-(1,2-benzisothiazol-3-yl)-1-piperazinyl]butyl]cyclohexane-1,2-dicarboximide monohydrochloride dehydrate), a novel antipsychotic agent, using human liver microsomes and expressed P450 isoforms. Quinidine (a specific(More)
In vitro metabolism of perospirone was examined with rat, monkey and human liver S9, human liver microsomes and yeast microsomes expressing human P450, using14C labeled perospirone. With rat liver S9, the major metabolites were MX9 and ID-11614, produced by cleavage at the butylene chain. However, some butylene non-cleavage and hydration of the cyclohexane(More)
Atherosclerosis is a progressive disease causally associated with multiple cardiovascular risk factors, including dyslipidemia. Without effective intervention, atherosclerosis becomes evidenced clinically as coronary artery and cerebrovascular disease, both of which remain the leading causes of death worldwide. Multiple lines of investigation indicate a(More)
A number of structural and functional mechanisms have been identified in the pathogenesis of hypertensive vascular disease, each of which requires effective therapy to reduce global cardiovascular risk. Hypertension, together with other cardiovascular risk factors, promotes endothelial dysfunction as evidenced by decreased nitric oxide (NO) release and(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence of left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (LVDD) sharply increases in women after their 50s and may contribute to the high prevalence of diastolic heart failure in elderly women. A decrease in estrogen levels after menopause is postulated to be one of the mechanisms responsible for this phenomenon. However, there is a paucity of(More)
Objectives The purpose of this study was to analyze the social activities of older men who require daily support, and to clarify the purpose of such activities, in order to develop effective living support and preventive long-term care service, suitable for this population.Methods Individual, semi-structured interviews were conducted with 17 older men.

Lumbosacral dural ectasia is frequently observed in patients with Marfan syndrome. Although neuraxial anesthesia is often used in peripartum anesthetic management, few reports describe the effects of dural ectasia on the spread and duration of neuraxial anesthesia. We report a case of combined spinal-epidural anesthesia for a cesarean delivery in a patient(More)
A 65-year-old man received general anesthesia for extended esophagectomy with 3-field lymph node dissection. Although he was without many risk factors for stroke except smoking, chest computed tomography performed preoperatively showed a small calcification at the origin of the left subclavian artery on the aortic arch. The anesthetic course was uneventful.(More)
