A novel nicotinic acetylcholine (ACh) receptor (nAChR)-mediated transduction pathway, regulating keratinocyte function, has been elucidated in studies of secreted mammalian Ly6/urokinase plasminogen activator receptor-related protein (SLURP)-1 and -2. SLURPs are members of Ly6/neurotoxin superfamily (Ly6SF) of proteins containing the unique

The transcription factor signal transducers and activators of transcription 3 (STAT3) can promote cancer metastasis, but its underlying regulatory mechanisms in gastric cancer cell invasiveness still remain obscure. We investigated the relationship between STAT3 and glycogen synthase kinase-3β (GSK-3β) and

Although NDRG2 has recently been found to be a candidate tumor suppressor, its precise role in the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is not well understood. In the present study, we demonstrated that NDRG2 overexpression in MDA-MB-231 cells down-regulated the expression of
Shunsuke Fukuyo et al.
Rheumatology (Oxford, England), 53(7), 1282-1290 (2014-03-07)
The mechanisms of ectopic calcification in inflammatory diseases are poorly understood. We investigated the effects of inflammatory cytokines on the mechanisms of calcification in human adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hADSCs). The effects of inflammatory cytokines were evaluated using hADSCs
