Six1 is one of the transcription factors that act as master regulators of development and are frequently dysregulated in cancers. However, the role of Six1 in pancreatic cancer is not clear. Here we show that the relative expression of Six1 mRNA is increased in pancreatic cancer and correlated with advanced tumor stage. In vitro functional assays(More)
The Drosophila Eyes Absent Homologue 1 (EYA1) is a component of the retinal determination gene network and serves as an H2AX phosphatase. The cyclin D1 gene encodes the regulatory subunits of a holoenzyme that phosphorylates and inactivates the pRb protein. Herein, comparison with normal breast showed that EYA1 is overexpressed with cyclin D1 in luminal B(More)
1-In this article, we describe our experiences in implementing an experimental wide-area GMPLS network called CHEE-TAH (Circuit-Switched End-to-End Transport Architecture). The key concept is to add a complementary end-to-end circuit based service with dynamic call-by-call bandwidth sharing to the connection-less service already available to end hosts via(More)
Extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma (ENKL) is marked by a profound cellular immune deficiency that may influence the capacity of T cells to extract an efficient antitumor immune response. It has been confirmed that the B7‑CD28 pathway may promote tumor immune evasion by providing a negative regulatory signal. The current study analyzed the expression(More)
Salvador promotes both cell cycle exit and apoptosis through the modulation of both cyclin E and Drosophila inhibitor of apoptosis protein in Drosophila. However, the cellular function of human Salvador (hSav1) is rarely reported. To screen for novel binding proteins that interact with hSav1, the cDNA of hSav1 was cloned into a bait protein plasmid, and(More)
Following fusion of a mycoplasma with a host cell membrane, the inserted components of mycoplasma may then be transported through the endocytic pathway. However, the effects of mycoplasmas on the host cell endomembrane system are largely unknown. In this study, mycoplasma‑induced changes in the dynamics of endocytic and autophagic systems were investigated.(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia pathologically characterized by cerebral amyloid-beta (Aβ) deposition. Early and accurate diagnosis of the disease still remains a big challenge. There is evidence that Aβ aggregation starts to occur years before symptoms arise. Noninvasive monitoring of Aβ plaques is critical for both the early(More)
Extranodal natural killer/T cell lymphoma (ENKL) is a high invasive disease with poor prognosis. Since there is no consensus on standard chemotherapy, we developed an original chemotherapeutic DDGP (cisplatin, dexamethasone, gemcitabine, and pegaspargase) regimen. We retrospectively analyzed 80 patients who received DDGP chemotherapy. The primary end point(More)
