Daikin Environmental Laboratory, Ltd, 3 Banchi, Miyukigaoka, Tsukuba, Ibaraki 305 0841, Japan
Environ Sci 11:269-82. 2004..This result indicates that this technique enables us to predict the toxicity of chemicals in the environment and to understand toxicities of newly synthesized chemicals...
- Oligonucleotide microarray analysis of dietary-induced hyperlipidemia gene expression profiles in miniature pigsJunko Takahashi
National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan
PLoS ONE 7:e37581. 2012..Miniature pigs are useful model animals for gene expression studies on dietary-induced hyperlipidemia because they have a similar anatomy and digestive physiology to humans, and blood samples can be obtained from them repeatedly...
- Effects of the pesticide thiuram: genome-wide screening of indicator genes by yeast DNA microarrayEmiko Kitagawa
Research Institute of Biological Resources, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan
Environ Sci Technol 36:3908-15. 2002..Thiuram treatment affected the promoter of these genes, indicating that this technique could be used for the selection of biomarker candidates...
- Oligonucleotide microarray analysis of age-related gene expression profiles in miniature pigsJunko Takahashi
National Metrology Institute of Japan, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan
PLoS ONE 6:e19761. 2011..These results indicate that uniformity of laboratory animals is expected for miniature pigs after 20 weeks of age. Furthermore, a possibility was shown that whole blood RNA analysis is applicable to evaluation of physiological state...
