π-Conjugated molecules have been utilized to functionalize inorganic surfaces to form organic–inorganic hybrid materials. However, the intrinsically strong π–π interaction results in undesirable aggregations on the inorganic surface, thereby disturbing the charge transfer through the organic–inorganic interface. In this study, a new strategy was developed using insulated π-conjugated molecules bearing ... Read more >>

Ryo Toyoshima, Takahisa Tanaka, Taro Kato, Ken Uchida, Hiroshi Kondoh,

In situ ambient-pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (AP-XPS) combined with resistivity measurement was performed for a Pt thin-film H2 gas sensor. We experimentally demonstrate that the chemical state of the Pt surface changes under working conditions, and it directly links to the sensing performance. Moreover, the operating principle is discussed at ... Read more >>

DYRK2 controls the epithelial-mesenchymal transition in breast cancer by degrading Snail.

Rei Mimoto, Naoe Taira, Hiroyuki Takahashi, Tomoko Yamaguchi, Masataka Okabe, Ken Uchida, Yoshio Miki, Kiyotsugu Yoshida,

The epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) plays a fundamental role in the early stages of breast cancer invasion. Snail, a zinc finger transcriptional repressor, is an important regulator of EMT. Snail is phosphorylated by GSK3β and is subsequently degraded by βTrCP-mediated ubiquitination. We identified an additional kinase, DYRK2, that regulates Snail stability. ... Read more >>

Hiroko Nogi, Ken Uchida, Tadashi Kobayashi,

Gene array testing defined the intrinsic biological subtypes including"luminal A", "luminal B", "HER2-enriched" and "basal" within breast cancer. These subtypes may be approximated using clinicopathological immunochemistry rather than gene expression array criteria. These subtypes have different epidemiological risk factors, different natural histories, and different response to systemic and local therapies. ... Read more >>
