Myosin Vb Mobilizes Recycling Endosomes and AMPA Receptors for Postsynaptic Plasticity
Learning-related plasticity at excitatory synapses in the mammalian brain requires the trafficking of AMPA receptors and the growth of dendritic spines. However, the mechanisms that couple plasticity… Expand
Taxonomic relatedness shapes bacterial assembly in activated sludge of globally distributed wastewater treatment plants.
Activated sludge (AS), which has been in use for 100 years, has been the most popular biological process in various wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), in which bacteria plays central roles in… Expand
Roles of endosomal trafficking in neurite outgrowth and guidance.
Membrane trafficking and cargo delivery are essential for axonal and dendritic growth and guidance. Neurons have numerous diverse post-Golgi vesicles and recent advances have clarified their identity… Expand
Response of complement expression to challenge with lipopolysaccharide in embryos/larvae of zebrafish Danio rerio: acquisition of immunocompetent complement.
The development of complement in fish is poorly understood, and little information is available about the acquisition of full complement capacities. In this study we demonstrated the ontogenic and… Expand
Site-specific Proteasome Phosphorylation Controls Cell Proliferation and Tumorigenesis
Despite the fundamental importance of proteasomal degradation in cells, little is known about whether and how the 26S proteasome itself is regulated in coordination with various physiological… Expand
Clinicopathological and Prognostic Value of Ki-67 Expression in Bladder Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
Background Ki-67 is an established marker of cell proliferation, and the Ki-67 index correlates with the clinical course of several cancer types, including bladder cancer (BC). However, the… Expand

Protein S-nitrosylation is a reversible post-translational modification by covalent modification on the thiol group of cysteine residues by nitric oxide. Growing evidence shows that protein… Expand
Effects of curcumin on bladder cancer cells and development of urothelial tumors in a rat bladder carcinogenesis model.
Curcumin, a well-known dietary pigment derived from Curcuma longa, inhibited growth of several types of malignant cells both in vivo and in vitro. Its effects on cell proliferation and the induction… Expand
