Antibody-drug conjugates utilize the antibody as a delivery vehicle for highly potent cytotoxic molecules with specificity for tumor-associated antigens for cancer therapy. Critical parameters that govern successful antibody-drug conjugate development for clinical use include the selection of the tumor target antigen, the antibody against the target, the(More)
Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are a subpopulation of tumor cells that can self-renew, metastasize, and promote cancer recurrence. A comprehensive characterization of the CSC proteome has been hampered due to their scarcity and rapid differentiation. Here, we present a systematic analysis of the cell-surface proteome using a CSC-like cell line derived from(More)
Protein receptor-ligand interactions play important roles in mediating enzyme catalysis, signal transduction, and other protein functions. Immunoaffinity purification followed by mass spectrometry analysis is a common method for identifying protein receptor-ligand complexes. However, it is difficult to distinguish between specific protein binding partners(More)
Autoantibodies can facilitate diagnostic and therapeutic means for type 1 diabetes (T1DM). We profiled autoantibodies from serum samples of 16 T1DM patients, 16 type 2 diabetic (T2DM) patients, and 27 healthy control subjects with normal glucose tolerance (NGT) by using protein microarrays containing 9,480 proteins. Two novel autoantibodies, anti-EEF1A1 and(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence of novel type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) antibodies targeting eukaryote translation elongation factor 1 alpha 1 autoantibody (EEF1A1-AAb) and ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme 2L3 autoantibody (UBE2L3-AAb) has been shown to be negatively correlated with age in T1DM subjects. Therefore, we aimed to investigate whether age affects the(More)
