  1. Tanaka T, Oka T, Shimada Y, Umemoto N, Kuroyanagi J, Sakamoto C, et al. Pharmacogenomics of cardiovascular pharmacology: pharmacogenomic network of cardiovascular disease models. J Pharmacol Sci. 2008;107:8-14 pubmed
    ..These results suggest that pharmacogenomic network analysis has the potential to bridge the gap between in vitro and in vivo studies and could define strategies for identifying novel drug targets in various cardiovascular diseases. ..
  2. Vranic S, Shimada Y, Ichihara S, Kimata M, Wu W, Tanaka T, et al. Toxicological Evaluation of SiO₂ Nanoparticles by Zebrafish Embryo Toxicity Test. Int J Mol Sci. 2019;20: pubmed publisher
    ..These results indicate that zebrafish chorion acts as a physical barrier against SiO₂ NPs, and removing the chorions in ZFET might be necessary for evaluation of toxicity of NPs. ..
  3. Zhang B, Shimada Y, Kuroyanagi J, Ariyoshi M, Nomoto T, Shintou T, et al. In vivo selective imaging and inhibition of leukemia stem-like cells using the fluorescent carbocyanine derivative, DiOC5(3). Biomaterials. 2015;52:14-25 pubmed publisher
    ..In summary, DiOC5(3) is a new type of anti-LSC compound available for diagnostic imaging and therapeutics that has the advantage of being a single fluorescent chemical. ..
  4. Zhang B, Shimada Y, Hirota T, Ariyoshi M, Kuroyanagi J, Nishimura Y, et al. Novel immunologic tolerance of human cancer cell xenotransplants in zebrafish. Transl Res. 2016;170:89-98.e3 pubmed publisher
    ..In conclusion, this xenograft method has potential as a platform for zebrafish-based anticancer drug discovery because it can closely mimic human clinical cancers without inducing immune suppression. ..
  5. Hasumura T, Shimada Y, Kuroyanagi J, Nishimura Y, Meguro S, Takema Y, et al. Green tea extract suppresses adiposity and affects the expression of lipid metabolism genes in diet-induced obese zebrafish. Nutr Metab (Lond). 2012;9:73 pubmed publisher
    ..Our results suggest that GTE exerts beneficial effects on adiposity, possibly by altering the expression of lipid catabolism genes and SOCS3. ..
  6. Kuroyanagi J, Shimada Y, Zhang B, Ariyoshi M, Umemoto N, Nishimura Y, et al. Zinc finger MYND-type containing 8 promotes tumour angiogenesis via induction of vascular endothelial growth factor-A expression. FEBS Lett. 2014;588:3409-16 pubmed publisher
    ..Integrated analysis of human and zebrafish transcriptomes, which identified ZMYND8, might be a powerful strategy to determine also other molecular targets for inhibiting prostate cancer progression. ..
