Proteasome inhibition has been recognized as a novel treatment modality in hematologic malignancies. Initially, the reversible proteasome inhibitor bortezomib demonstrated efficacy in multiple myeloma (MM), which supported its approval for relapsed and refractory MM in 2003. Later on, carfilzomib, a next-generation irreversible proteasome inhibitor was(More)
In dendritic cells, the NADPH oxidase 2 complex (NOX2) is recruited to the phagosomal membrane during antigen uptake. NOX2 produces reactive oxygen species (ROS) in the lumen of the phagosome that kill ingested pathogens, delay antigen breakdown and alter the peptide repertoire for presentation to T cells. How the integral membrane component of NOX2,(More)
Dendritic cells (DCs) present foreign antigen in major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecules to cytotoxic T cells in a process called cross-presentation. An important step in this process is the release of antigen from the lumen of endosomes into the cytosol, but the mechanism of this step is still unclear. In this study, we show that reactive(More)
BACKGROUND Radiotherapy is one of the mainstays in the treatment for cancer, but its success can be limited due to inherent or acquired resistance. Mechanisms underlying radioresistance in various cancers are poorly understood and available radiosensitizers have shown only modest clinical benefit. There is thus a need to identify new targets and drugs for(More)
Immune responses are initiated by the interactions between antigen-presenting cells (APCs), such as dendritic cells (DCs), with responder cells, such as T cells, via a tight cellular contact interface called the immunological synapse. The immunological synapse is a highly organized subcellular structure that provides a platform for the presentation of(More)
which permits unrestricted use, distribution and reproduction in any medium provided that the original work is properly attributed. Summary Statement: In human dendritic cells, the membrane component of the NADPH oxidase NOX2 is initially recruited to phagosomes from the plasma membrane and oxidized NOX2 is replenished from a lysosomal pool. Abstract In(More)
Actin plays a critical role during the early stages of pathogenic microbe internalization by immune cells. In this study, we identified a key mechanism of actin filament tethering and stabilization to the surface of phagosomes in human dendritic cells. We found that the actin-binding protein SWAP70 is specifically recruited to nascent phagosomes by binding(More)
