    Oncol Rep 12:253-8. 2004
    ..Apoptosis in the p53-wild-type alphaT3 tumors was observed in a Cisplatin dose-dependent manner. In addition, it was found that Cisplatin augmented CPT-11-induced p53-independent apoptosis in p53-deficient alphaT3 mice...

    Physiol Genomics 27:219-30. 2006
    ..g., thermoTRPs activated by noxious heat, warm, and cool temperatures. Our results suggest that thermosensation mechanisms have changed through vertebrate evolution with respect to thermosensor repertoires...

    Shigeru Saito
    Laboratory of Bioscience, Faculty of Engineering, Iwate University, Morioka, Japan
    Gene 408:37-44. 2008

    United Graduate School of Agricultural Sciences, Iwate University, Morioka 020 8550, Japan
    New Phytol 181:808-19. 2009
    ..In addition, the transcript abundance and the evolutionary differences between Populus LHY1 and LHY2 imply that Populus LHY2, rather than LHY1, may have a major role in the Populus clock system...

    Free Radic Res 37:631-43. 2003
    ..Since it is known that cancer cells are generally resistant to physical and chemical stress-induced apoptosis, free radical generators like AAPH appear to be a useful thermosensitizer for hyperthermic cancer therapy...
