Sequencing technologies and new bioinformatics tools have led to the complete sequencing of various genomes. However, information regarding the human transcriptome and its annotation is yet to be completed. The Human Cancer Genome Project, using ORESTES (open reading frame EST sequences) methodology, contributed to this objective by generating data from(More)
Background TRAIL, a member of the TNF ligand family, was shown to selectively kill cancer cells and, therefore, to participate in the cell-mediated immunity against tumors. However, TRAIL is down-regulated in a variety of cancers. Furthermore , PRAME (preferentially expressed antigen of mela-noma) is frequently over expressed in a wide variety of malignant(More)
