In an effort to find new pharmacological modalities to overcome resistance to ATP-binding-site inhibitors of Bcr-Abl, we recently reported the discovery of GNF-2, a selective allosteric Bcr-Abl inhibitor. Here, using solution NMR, X-ray crystallography, mutagenesis and hydrogen exchange mass spectrometry, we show that GNF-2 binds to the myristate-binding(More)
Resistance of Bcr-Abl-positive leukemic stem cells (LSCs) to imatinib treatment in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) can cause relapse of disease and might be the origin for emerging drug-resistant clones. In this study, we identified Smo as a drug target in Bcr-Abl-positive LSCs. We show that Hedgehog signaling is activated in LSCs through(More)
Interaction of cancer cells with their microenvironment generated by stromal cells is essential for tumor cell survival and influences the localization of tumor growth. Here we demonstrate that hedgehog ligands secreted by bone-marrow, nodal and splenic stromal cells function as survival factors for malignant lymphoma and plasmacytoma cells derived from(More)
Parenteral administration of immunoglobulins (Ig) for prevention or treatment of respiratory diseases achieves only modest concentrations of antibody in the pulmonary interstitial tissue and airways. Aerosols, including spray-dried particles, must overcome two limiting factors in order to be effective vehicles for pulmonary delivery of Ig: (i) Fc receptor(More)
Peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCL) constitute a major treatment problem with high mortality rates due to the minimal effectiveness of conventional chemotherapy. Recent findings identified ITK-SYK as the first recurrent translocation in 17% of unspecified PTCLs and showed the overexpression of SYK in more than 90% of PTCLs. Here, we show that the expression(More)
The mathematics of synthesizing a high-range resolution profile (HRRP) is discussed. With a generalized model of synthetic wideband signal and its echo signal, stretch processing technique is extended and refined. Then, an investigation on the mathematic principle of synthesizing a range profile demonstrates that quadratic phase error criterion does not(More)
