Rho GTPases such as RhoA, Rac1 and Cdc42 are crucial players in the regulation of signal transduction pathways required for neuronal differentiation. Using an in vitro cell culture model of neuroblastoma SH-SY5Y cells, we demonstrated previously that RhoA is an in vivo substrate of tissue transglutaminase (TGase) and retinoic acid (RA) promoted activation(More)
The impact of acute anal stretch on the pelvic-urethra reflex potentiation was examined in urethane-anesthetized rats by recording the external urethra sphincter electromyogram activity evoked by the pelvic afferent stimulation. Test stimulation (1 stimulation/30 s) evoked a baseline reflex activity with a single action potential that was abolished by(More)
The variation in mortality-to-incidence ratios (MIRs) among countries reflects the clinical outcomes and the available interventions for colorectal cancer treatments. The association between MIR of prostate cancer and cancer care disparities among countries is an interesting issue that is rarely investigated. For the present study, cancer incidence and(More)
