Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a heterogeneous disease, with varying immunological and histopathological features. The CC chemokine ligand 19 (CCL19) can stimulate T cells and antigen-presenting cells into secondary lymphoid node formation, as observed in allergic rhinitis, inflammatory bowel disease and other inflammatory disorders. The purpose of this(More)
Notch signaling plays a key role in a wide variety of human tumors; it can be an oncogene or a tumor-suppressor gene depending on the tissue context. The functions of Notch1 in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) are largely unknown. We investigated the role of Notch1 in LSCC cell growth, apoptosis and metastasis. We analyzed Notch1 expression in(More)
Using the polymmerse chain reaction (PCR), we amplified the phytase gene phyA from Pichia pastoris GS115-phyA in Aspergillus niger NRRL3135 without the signal peptide sequence and intron sequence,. Then, it was cloned into pINA1297 vector to generate a recombinant vector of pINA1297-phyA. pINA1297-phyA was linearized and transformed into Yarrowia lipolytica(More)
Notch signaling is important during the development of a variety of human tumors. Depending on the context, Notch signaling can be either oncogenic or anti‑proliferative, and therefore, its effects in cancer are unpredictable. The aim of the present study was to identify the importance of Notch 2 in the cell growth and metastasis of laryngeal squamous cell(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical features of epistaxis in the posterior fornix of the inferior nasal meatus and compare the treatment outcomes of endoscopic surgery and conventional nasal packing for this intractable form of epistaxis. METHODS Between August 2011 and August 2014, the medical records of 53 adult patients with idiopathic epistaxis in(More)
