Loss of chromosomal integrity as well as genomic stability is considered to act as a driving force during the processes of tumorigenesis and tumor progression (1–3). Recently, two kinase genes involved in mitosis, the genes for aurora and IPL1-like midbody-associated protein kinase-1 (4,5) [AIM-1, registered in UniGene and also known as aurora1 (6) and ARK2(More)
Nerve growth factor-induced clone B (NGFI-B), Nur-related factor 1, and neuron-derived orphan receptor-1 have structural features of ligand-activated transcriptional regulators and constitute the NGFI-B subfamily within the nuclear receptor superfamily. The NGFI-B subfamily is highly expressed in neuroendocrine organs and regulates the pro-opiomelanocortin(More)
It has been reported that cytokeratin 8 (CK8) is expressed in all non-small-cell lung cancers (NSCLC). We hypothesized that antigenic changes of CK8 may occur in some NSCLC cell lines. To prove this, Western immunoblot analysis using anti-human CK8 monoclonal antibodies as well as immunohistological staining of CK8 were performed in NSCLC cell lines. As a(More)
Most of the known 4-coumarate:coenzyme A ligase (4CL) isoforms lack CoA-ligation activity for sinapic acid. Therefore, there is some doubt as to whether sinapic acid contributes to sinapyl alcohol biosynthesis. In this study, we characterized the enzyme activity of a protein mixture extracted from the developing xylem of Robinia pseudoacacia. The crude(More)
