The adaptive structure and functional changes of the actin cytoskeleton are induced by its mechanical behavior at various temporal and spatial scales. In particular, the mechanical behaviors at different scales play important roles in the mechanical functions of various cells, and these multiscale phenomena require clarification. To establish a milestone(More)
INTRODUCTION Liver cavernous hemangioma is the most common noncystic hepatic lesion, and a hemangioma that undergoes degeneration and fibrous replacement is called a hepatic sclerosed hemangioma. CASE PRESENTATION A 63-year-old Japanese man was admitted for detailed investigation of a liver tumor. Tumor markers carcinoembryonic antigen, alpha-fetoprotein,(More)
For the purpose of the investigation of characteristics of VOCs found indoors in recently constructed residential buildings, we measured the behavior of VOCs which were sampled at one-month intervals over a period of one year from the, initial occupancy date in both a detached house and an apartment in a multiple' dwelling. At the first passive sampling(More)
We attempted to obtain the monoclonal antibody specific for the N-linked complex-type sialo-oligosaccharide in glycoproteins. We first synthesized a chimeric immunoantigen having an N-linked complex-type of oligosaccharide of glycopeptide, which was bound to a p-formylphenyl compound and conjugated with phosphatidylethanolamine dimyristoyl using the(More)
A mechanochemical relationship between intracellular flow fields of actin and remodeling of actin filaments is important to the realization of cell motility. In this study, to investigate this mechanochemical relationship, we present a mathematical model describing motions of actin filament and remodeling of the filaments in shear flows. We perform(More)
The actin filament, which is the most abundant component of the cytoskeleton, plays important roles in fundamental cellular activities such as shape determination, cell motility, and mechanosensing. In each activity, the actin filament dynamically changes its structure by polymerization, depolymerization, and severing. These phenomena occur on the scales(More)
Urachal carcinoma is an extremely rare malignant tumor arising from the urachus in the fetus. We report a patient who developed urachal carcinoma 18 years after kidney transplantation. A 59-year-old man was admitted because of abdominal pain and massive ascites. He had undergone kidney transplantation 18 years earlier and had end-stage renal disease(More)
