Immunotherapy is one of the most promising new therapies for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in recent years. In this study, folate-conjugated chitosan nanoparticles (FA-CS-NPs) were loaded with mouse interferon-γ-inducible protein-10 (IP-10) plasmid, which were used for immunotherapy in HCC. H22 tumor-bearing mice were treated with FA-CS-NPs entrapped IP-10(More)
Ezrin and heat shock protein (HSP)70 have been reported to regulate cell apoptosis and tumor development of osteosarcoma. However, there has not been reported the synergy effect of knocking down ezrin and overexpressing HSP70. In the present study, two vectors, pGFP-V-RS-shRNA and pGFP-V-RS-shRNA-HSP70, were constructed and transfected into LM8 cells(More)
Burkitt lymphoma (BL) has been reported to be strongly associated with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection. The fact that EBV is generally present in cancer cells but rarely found in healthy cells represents an opportunity for targeted cancer therapy. One approach is to activate the lytic replication cycle of the latent(More)
UNLABELLED To investigate heterogeneity of endothelial cells (ECs) in the tumor microenvironment and biomarkers for antitumor angiogenesis therapy, high-purity (>98%) normal (NECs) and tumor-derived CD105(+) ECs (TECs) were purified from a mouse Lewis lung carcinoma model bearing 0.5 cm tumors by immunomagnetic separation. Proteomics analysis revealed that(More)
In lung cancer, antiangiogenic treatment targeting tumor endothelial cells (ECs) provides a survival advantage. To fully elucidate the behavior of ECs in a tumor microenvironment, high-purity (>98%) normal, paratumor-, and tumor-derived CD105(+) ECs were purified from lung squamous cell carcinoma by incubating cells with anti-CD105 antibody-coated magnetic(More)
PURPOSE We have developed a PEGylated transferrin-conjugated liposomes (PTf-Ls) system for the combined tumor imaging and targeted delivery of the IFN-γ-inducible protein-10 (IP-10) gene in a single macromolecular construct. Here, we characterize and analyze the use of this system in a mouse model of breast cancer. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN The biophysical and(More)
Increasing evidence indicates that tumor-derived endothelial cells (TECs) are more relevant for the study of tumor angiogenesis and for screening antiangiogenic drugs than normal ECs (NECs). In this data article, high-purity (>98%) primary CD105(+) NECs and TECs purified from a mouse Lewis lung carcinoma model bearing 0.5 cm tumors were identified using(More)
Cisplatin is a widely used anticancer drug, while non-targeted delivery, development of drug resistance, and serious side effects significantly limit its clinical use. In order to improve the tumor-targeting properties of cisplatin, transferrin (Tf) was employed as a carrier to transfer cisplatin into cancer cells via transferrin receptor 1 (TfR1) mediated(More)
GATA4 is a zinc finger DNA-binding protein that plays an important role in mammalian liver development. However, the effects of GATA4 in hepatoblastoma (HB), a common liver cancer in pediatric patients, remain largely unknown. In this study, we demonstrate that GATA4 promotes growth and survival in the Huh6 human hepatoblastoma cell line. GATA4 expression(More)
Gastric cancer (GC) is one of the most malignant tumors with a poor prognosis. Alterations in metabolic pathways are inextricably linked to GC progression. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms remain elusive. We performed NMR-based metabolomic analysis of sera derived from a rat model of gastric carcinogenesis, revealed significantly altered(More)
