The present study attempted to identify T helper epitope long peptides capable of inducing cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) from Lck antigen (p56(Lck) ), the src family tyrosine kinase, which is known to be aberrantly expressed in metastatic cancers cells, in order to develop a long peptide-based cancer vaccine for HLA-A2(+) cancer patients. Based on the(More)
Neuromuscular blockage at the presynaptic level is the main biological effect exerted by crotoxin, the major toxin from Crotalus durissus terrificus venom. This effect requires the dissociation of this complex at the target membrane in spite of its tightness and stability under physiological conditions of pH, ionic composition and temperature.
