    The expression of PINX1, a possible telomerase inhibitor and a putative tumor suppressor, has not been studied in human cancers, including gastric cancer (GC). We examined expression of PINX1 by quantitative reverse transcription (RT)-PCR in 73 cases of GC, and 45 of these cases were further...

    Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is an autoimmune blistering disease that commonly occurs in the elderly. Immunosuppressive medications are effective at controlling the disease in the majority of cases. Mortality can occur as a consequence of severe disease or as a result of the therapies that are...

    Whereas prototypic adipocytokines such as adiponectin or leptin are mainly derived from adipocytes, others such as pre-B cell colony enhancing factor (PBEF)/nicotinamide phosphoribosyl transferase (NAMPT)/visfatin or resistin are produced by various cell types throughout the body. Although first...

    Numerous studies have shown that nicotinamide can prevent cell death via both necrosis and apoptosis. DNA fragmentation, NAD, poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase, apoptosis inducing factors, tumor necrosis factors, p53, caspases, inhibitor of apoptosis proteins and other factors are important in the...

    Cell migration is essential to cancer invasion and metastasis and is spatially and temporally integrated through transcriptionally dependent and independent mechanisms. As cell migration is studied in vitro, it is important to identify genes that both drive cell migration and are biologically...
