Secreted mammalian Ly6/urokinase plasminogen activator receptor-related protein-1 (SLURP-1) is a recently identified, endogenous ligand of the alpha7 subunit of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. SLURP-1 is also the causative gene for an autosomal recessive palmoplantar keratoderma, Mal de Meleda. Although the function of SLURP-1 in keratinocyte development(More)
Slingshot-1 (SSH1), a member of a dual-specificity protein phosphatase family, regulates actin dynamics by dephosphorylating and reactivating cofilin, an actin-depolymerizing factor. SSH1 has the SSH family-specific, N-terminal, noncatalytic (SSH-N) domain, consisting of the A and B subdomains. SSH1 is activated by binding to actin filaments. In this study,(More)
In a previous study, we have found acetylcholine and/or L-DOPA in 10 colonial clones from one cell line of Drosophila larval central nervous system (CNS). In this study, to characterize clonal neuronal phenotypes further, we have examined three neuropeptides and 19 amino acids using HPLC system. Substance P and proctolin were found in seven and eight out of(More)
BACKGROUND Oxidative stress is implicated in increased vascular permeability associated with metabolic disorders, but the underlying redox mechanism is poorly defined. S-glutathionylation, a stable adduct of glutathione with protein sulfhydryl, is a reversible oxidative modification of protein and is emerging as an important redox signaling paradigm in(More)
— Recently, several kinds of values have been employed with respect to the diversification of individuality in the market. Some of these values are currently supported by only a few people, who are referred to as a " minority group ". However, there is the possibility that such groups will grow into majority groups with changes in historical background or(More)
