Research Strategy
  Basal laminae play important roles in controlling the epithelial cell proliferation and differentiation since they present the extracellular environment directly contacting parenchyma (epithelium). We aim to clarify the regulatory mechanism involved in the expression of laminin family proteins, the major components of basal laminae, and develop methods for overproduction of laminins. We also aim to clarify the mechanism whereby basal laminae control the proliferation/differentiation of epithelial cells, through analyzing the molecular basis of signals from laminins using microarray-based expression profiling.
