Zebrafish Model

Nitrite suppresses hypoxia-induced vascular leakage in living zebrafish embryos.Vascular leakage was visualized by fluorescent microscopy. Yellow arrowheads indicate hypoxia-promoted vascular permeability as indicated by severe microsphere extravasations. Asterisks indicate areas supplied with magnified views. Yellow lines indicate maximal distance of microsphere extravasations.(Circulation research, 109,1375-1386)

About us

We are investigating the underlying mechanism that controls cell signaling networks in response to physiological and pathophysiological stimuli, such as nitric oxide, cytokine, steroid hormones, hypoxia and ischemia. Many critical biological processes are regulated by those signaling networks, for examples, cytoskeletal organization and function in ischemic heart and brain, inflammatory responses in blood vessels and metamorphosis during Drosophila development. These several important disciplines are our current interest in research works. To reveal the molecular basis for these biological processes and signaling networks, we have employed various the state-of-the-art techniques including mass spectrometry-based quantitative phosphoproteomic analysis, genetic approaches in mice and Drosophila, high power cell imaging and sophisticated surgical procedure in animals. The functional role of protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs) and caspases as well as thousands of PTP and caspase substrates in those biological processes and signaling networks is the primary focus in the laboratory.
