Claudins (CLDNs) are a family of integral membrane proteins central to the formation of tight junctions, structures that are involved in paracellular transport and cellular growth and differentiation, and are critical for the maintenance of cellular polarity. Recent studies have provided evidence that CLDNs are aberrantly expressed in diverse types of human(More)
Increasing the breakdown of stored fat in adipose tissue leads to reducing fat content, enhancing feed efficiency and, consequently, decreasing the production cost of poultry. The processes of lipolysis are not completely understood, and the proteins involved in this process need to be identified. An adipose triglyceride lipase (ATGL), recently identified(More)
Adipose triglyceride lipase (ATGL), a newly identified lipase, is a rate-limiting enzyme for triglyceride hydrolysis in adipocytes. The regulatory proteins involved in ATGL-mediated lipolysis in fat tissue are not fully identified and understood. The G(0)/G(1) switch gene 2 (G0S2) is an inhibitor of ATGL activity by interacting with ATGL through the(More)
Owing to its tumor tropism and prolonged transgene expression, mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) has been considered as an ideal delivery vehicle for cancer gene therapies or therapeutic vaccines. In this study, we demonstrated that intratumoral (i.t.) injection of MSCs expressing modified interleukin-12 (MSCs/IL-12M) exhibited stronger tumor-specific T-cell(More)
Rolling mouse Nagoya (rolling: tg(rol)) is a neurologic mutant mouse exhibiting severe ataxia. Two alleles of the rolling mutation, tottering (tg) and leaner(tg(la)), have been identified as mutations in the voltage-dependent calcium channel alpha1A subunit. No specific light and electron microscopic findings have been reported for the rolling mouse(More)
Uncovering the mechanisms that govern the maintenance of stem-like cancer cells is critical for developing therapeutic strategies for targeting these cells. Constitutive activation of c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) has been reported in gliomas and correlates with histological grade. Here, we found that JNK signaling is crucial for the maintenance of(More)
The effects of age and gender on cerebellar size have not been established yet. To understand these effects, the area of cerebellar vermis and the volume of cerebellum were measured using serial magnetic resonance images of 124 Korean adults free of neurologic symptoms and signs. Cerebellar volume of male was significantly larger than that of female,(More)
The ndhF sequences of 99 taxa, representing all sections in extant Magnoliaceae, were analyzed to address phylogenetic questions in the family. Magnolia macrophylla and M. dealbata, North American species of Magnolia section Rytidospermum, are placed at the base in the subfamily Magnolioideae although its supporting value is low. In the remaining taxa,(More)
Adipose triglyceride lipase (ATGL) is the rate-limiting enzyme of lipolysis in chicken adipose tissue. Its regulation is not fully understood. Recent studies suggest ATGL may be regulated by physical protein-protein interactions. Comparative gene identification 58 (CGI-58) has been identified as an activator of ATGL in mice. The purpose of the current study(More)
The objective of this research was to further characterize the promoter regions of the bovine and porcine fatty acid-binding protein 4 (FABP4) genes relative to those of other mammals. The DNA sequences of FABP4 promoters for the human, mouse, cow, pig, and dog were obtained from the genomic database of the National Center for Biotechnology Information and(More)
