Outline

Cell number of the tissue is tightly regulated and this regulation is crucial for homeostatic maintenance of the body. Regulatory mechanisms of the tissue quorum are thought to be based on the communication between dying cells and proliferating cells in whole body. In this research, we will explore the basic mechanisms of the tissue quorum control not only in the tissue but also in whole body. Our research will contribute to clarify the common mechanisms of cancer or degenerative diseases in which the tissue quorum is dysregulated. Our research goal will also facilitate the development of new diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
