Tumour progression and cancer-induced pain: a role for protease-activated receptor-2?
The role of proteases in modifying the microenvironment of tumour cells has long been recognised. With the discovery of the protease-activated receptor family of G protein-coupled receptors a mechanism for cells to sense and respond directly to proteases in their microenvironment was revealed. Many...
Deer antler--a novel model for studying organ regeneration in mammals.
We can impart a greater potential of these periosteal cells to proliferate, we might at least be able to partially regenerate limbs lost from humans. Taken together, a greater understanding of the mechanisms that regulate the regeneration of antlers may provide a valuable insight to aid the field of...

RBM5 and p53 expression after rat spinal cord injury: Implications for neuronal apoptosis.
We performed an acute SCI model in adult rats in this study. Our results showed RBM5 was unregulated significantly after SCI, which was accompanied with an increase in the levels of apoptotic proteins such as p53, Bax, and active caspase-3. Immunofluorescent labeling also showed that traumatic SCI i...
Structure and functional evaluation of porcine NANOG that is a single-exon gene and has two pseudogenes.
We report, for the first time, that porcine NANOG is encoded by a single exon gene (SEG) mapped on chromosome 1 and has two daughter genes, one pseudogene NANOGP1 on chromosome 5 and one tandem duplicate on chromosome 1. The duplicated pseudogene NANOGP2 has high sequence similarity to NANOG, but do...
