- Practice and politics in Japanese science: Hitoshi Kihara and the formation of a genetics disciplineKaori Iida
Department of History of Science and Technology, Johns Hopkins University, 3505 North Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21218, USA
J Hist Biol 43:529-70. 2010..The article discusses Kihara's interest in cytoplasmic inheritance and his synthetic approach to genetics in this political context, and draws attention to the relation between Kihara's genetics and agricultural practice in Japan...
- PERK eIF2 alpha kinase is required to regulate the viability of the exocrine pancreas in miceKaori Iida
Department of History of Science and Technology, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD 21218, USA
BMC Cell Biol 8:38. 2007..To determine if the exocrine pancreatic atrophy is due to a cell-autonomous defect, the Perk gene was specifically ablated in acinar cells of the exocrine pancreas in mice...
- PERK eIF2alpha kinase regulates neonatal growth by controlling the expression of circulating insulin-like growth factor-I derived from the liverYulin Li
Department of Biology, The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, Pennsylvania 16802, USA
Endocrinology 144:3505-13. 2003..We propose that PERK is required to regulate the expression of IGF-I in the liver during the neonatal period, when IGF-I expression is GH-independent, and that the lack of this regulation results in severe neonatal growth retardation...
