Purpose. G-protein-coupled receptors are known to mediate cell growth via divergent signaling pathways. It has been reported that colon cancer cells express muscarinic acetylcholine receptor (mAChR) although their functional role is largely unknown. The aim of this study is to elucidate possible mechanisms responsible for the growth-promoting effect of(More)
The immune system has two broad components-innate and adaptive immunity. Adaptive immunity becomes established only after the onset of hematopoiesis, whereas the innate immune system may be actively protecting organisms from microbial invasion much earlier in development. Here, we address the question of whether the innate immune system functions in the(More)
We identified, by anticomplement immunofluorescence, a nuclear antigen (hepatitis B virus-associated nuclear antigen [HBNA]) in two human hepatoma cell lines containing integrated hepatitis B virus DNA but not in three hepatoma cell lines lacking it. The antigen resembled neoantigens associated with the oncogenesis of certain papovaviruses, adenoviruses,(More)
Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) is a classic tumor-specific antigen that is overexpressed in several cancers, including gastric cancer. Although some anti-CEA antibodies have been tested, to the best of our knowledge, there are currently no clinically approved anti-CEA antibody therapies. Because of this, we have created the novel anti-CEA antibody, 15-1-32,(More)
