    The diagnosis of a bleeding Meckel's diverticulum containing ectopic gastric mucosa by 99m-Tc pertechnetate imaging is reported to have a diagnostic accuracy of 90% for patients in the pediatric age group. The usefulness of Meckel's scanning in adults is, however, less certain. We present two...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the parameters influencing the size of cryobiopsies in an in...

  • Calpain 8/nCL-2 and Calpain 9/nCL-4 Constitute an Active Protease Complex, G-Calpain, Involved in Gastric Mucosal Defense. Hata, Shoji; Abe, Manabu; Suzuki, Hidenori; Kitamura, Fujiko; Toyama-Sorimachi, Noriko; Abe, Keiko; Sakimura, Kenji; Sorimachi, Hiroyuki // PLoS Genetics;Jul2010, Vol. 6 Issue 7, p1 

    Calpains constitute a superfamily of Ca2+-dependent cysteine proteases, indispensable for various cellular processes. Among the 15 mammalian calpains, calpain 8/nCL-2 and calpain 9/nCL-4 are predominantly expressed in the gastrointestinal tract and are restricted to the gastric surface mucus...

  • Activated macrophages promote Wnt signalling through tumour necrosis factor-α in gastric tumour cells. Oguma, Keisuke; Oshima, Hiroko; Aoki, Masahiro; Uchio, Ryusei; Naka, Kazuhito; Nakamura, Satoshi; Hirao, Atsushi; Saya, Hideyuki; Taketo, Makoto Mark; Oshima, Masanobu // EMBO Journal;6/25/2008, Vol. 27 Issue 12, p1671 

    The activation of Wnt/β-catenin signalling has an important function in gastrointestinal tumorigenesis. It has been suggested that the promotion of Wnt/β-catenin activity beyond the threshold is important for carcinogenesis. We herein investigated the role of macrophages in the promotion...
