Enhancement of Runx2 Expression Is Potentially Linked to β-Catenin Accumulation in Canine Intervertebral Disc Degeneration.
We used canines as a model to investigate the in vitro mechanisms underlying IVDD. The mechanism underlying age-related IVDD, however, is poorly understood. Several research groups have suggested that Wnt/β-catenin signaling plays an important role in IVDD. However, the role of Wnt/β-catenin signals...
Ghrelin Augments the Expressions and Secretions of Proinflammatory Adipokines, VEGF120 and MCP-1, in Differentiated 3T3-L1 Adipocytes.
We investigated the regulatory mechanisms about adipokines, which play a central role in inducing peripheral insulin resistance, secreted from mature 3T3-L1 adipocytes stimulated with ghrelin in vitro . The stimulation with 50 nmol/L ghrelin for 24 h resulted in the significant 1.9-fold increase on...

VEGF inhibitor (Iressa) arrests histone deacetylase expression: single-cell cotransfection imaging cytometry for multi-target-multi-drug ana...
We report single-cell cotransfection imaging cytometry to quantitatively screen drug-induced off-target effects. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and histone deacetylase (HDAC) genes amplified from the genomic DNA were cloned in fluorescently tagged gene constructs (RFP-HDAC/YFP-VEGF). Thes...
Expression of Notch receptors, ligands, and target genes during development of the mouse mammary gland
We have quantitatively determined the levels and mRNA expression patterns of the Notch receptor genes, their ligands and target genes in the postnatal mouse mammary gland. The steady state levels of Notch3 mRNA are the highest among receptor genes, Jagged1 and Dll3 mRNA levels are the highest among...
Numerous isoforms of Fgf8 reflect its multiple roles in the developing brain.
We review the roles of Fgf8 in vertebrate development and summarize the recent findings on the in vivo function of different Fgf8 splice variants. We propose that multiple Fgf8 isoform proteins act in concert to regulate the overall function of Fgf8 and account for the diverse and essential role of...
Decreased secretion of MMP by non-lesional late-stage scleroderma fibroblasts after selection via activation of the apoptotic Fas-pathway.
Our results show that resistance to apoptosis is an important characteristic of the late-stage lesional SSc fibroblast phenotype. We thus hypothesized that a selection of specific fibroblast subpopulations from late-stage non-lesional SSc skin areas could be at the origin of lesional populations. Th...
Leptin increases motility and integrin up-regulation in human prostate cancer cells.
We found that leptin increased the migration of human prostate cancer cells and expression of αvβ3 integrin on these cells. Leptin-mediated migration and increased integrin expression were attenuated by OBRl receptor antisense oligonucleotide. Activation of insulin receptor substrate (IRS-1), phos...
