Development of pathological diagnostics of human kidney cancer by multiple staining using new fluorescent Fluolid dyes.
Tsukuba, Japan. In Biomed Res Int, 2013
Here, we performed simultaneous immunostaining of renal tumors, clear cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC), papillary RCC, chromophobe RCC, acquired cystic disease-associated RCC (ACD-RCC), and renal angiomyolipoma (AML), with primary antibodies against Kank1, cytokeratin 7 (CK7), and CD10, which were detected with secondary antibodies labeled with Fluolid-Orange, Fluolid-Green, and Alexa Fluor 647, respectively.
Kank proteins: structure, functions and diseases.
Tsukuba, Japan. In Cell Mol Life Sci, 2009
The Kank family of proteins, Kank1-Kank4, are characterized by their unique structure, coiled-coil motifs in the N-terminal region, and ankyrin-repeats in the C-terminal region, with an additional motif, the KN motif, at the N-terminus.
Differential expression of vitreous proteins in proliferative diabetic retinopathy.
Seoul, South Korea. In Curr Eye Res, 2006
Eight proteins (pigmented epithelium derived factor, serine protease inhibitor, apolipoprotein A-IV precursor, prostaglandin-H2 D-isomerase, a(1)-antitrypsin precursor, ankyrin repeat domain 15 protein, alpha2-HS-glycoprotein, and beta V spectrin) in the 25 spots were expressed significantly differently between the macular hole and proliferative diabetic retinopathy patients (p value < 0.05).
