Antimicrobial peptides represent ancient host defense effector molecules present in organisms across the evolutionary spectrum. Lots of antimicrobial peptides were synthesized based on well-known structural motif widely existed in a variety of lives. Leucine-rich repeats (LRRs) are sequence motifs present in over 60,000 proteins identified from viruses,(More)
An interesting aspect of Newcastle disease virus (NDV) is the ability to selectively replicate in tumor cells. Recently, using reverse genetics technology to enhance the oncolytic properties and therapeutic potential of NDV for tumor therapy has become popular in immunocompetent carcinoma tumor models. Expressing foreign genes by recombinant NDV (rNDV-FG)(More)
Cancer cells possess fundamentally altered metabolism that supports their pathogenic features, which includes a heightened reliance on aerobic glycolysis to provide precursors for synthesis of biomass. We show here that inositol polyphosphate phosphatase 1 (INPP1) is highly expressed in aggressive human cancer cells and primary high-grade human tumors.(More)
