Antibody-based immuneotherapy has achieved some success for cancer. But the main problem is that only a few tumor-associated antigens or therapeutic targets have been known to us so far. It is essential to identify more immunogenic antigens (especially cellular membrane markers) for tumor diagnosis and therapy. The membrane proteins of lung adenocarcinoma(More)
Testis-expressed sequence 101 (TEX101) was found to be highly expressed in testis and involved in acrosome reaction in previous studies. Recently, the metastasis suppressor function of TEX101 in cancer was disclosed, but the comprehensive investigation of its expression has rarely been reported. In this study, the expression features of TEX101 in normal(More)
PNAS-4, a novel pro-apoptotic gene activated during the early response to DNA damage, can inhibit proliferation via apoptosis when overexpressed in some tumor cells. The objectives of this study were to determine whether PNAS-4 could enhance apoptosis induced by cisplatin besides its induction of apoptosis, and to evaluate the usefulness of combined(More)
Human PNAS4 (hPNAS4) is a recently identified pro-apoptosis gene, which is able to induce apoptosis in A549 human lung adenocarcinoma cells following its overexpression. In this work, we investigated the changes of protein profile in hPNAS4-induced apoptosis in A549 cells through proteomic strategy consisting of two-dimensional electrophoresis (2-DE)(More)
Apoptosis plays an important role in embryonic development. PNAS-4 has been demonstrated to induce apoptosis in several cancer cells. In this study, we cloned Xenopus laevis PNAS-4 (xPNAS-4), which is homologous to the human PNAS-4 gene. Bioinformatics analysis for PNAS-4 indicated that xPNAS-4 shared 87.6% identity with human PNAS-4 and 85.5% with mouse(More)
This work was initiated with the purpose of purifying and identifying differentially expressed plasma membrane-associated proteins between human liver cancer cell line HepG2 and normal liver cell line L02. The combined strategy of sucrose density gradient centrifugation and subsequent phase partition was applied to obtain high-purity proteins of plasma(More)
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common form of arrhythmia encountered in clinical practice, and contributes to cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Despite significant advances in the understanding of the mechanisms associated with AF, the number of effective biomarkers and viable therapeutic targets remains relatively limited. In this study, 2-DE(More)
Despite progress in elucidating mechanisms associated with colorectal cancer and improvement of treatment methods, it remains a frequent cause of death worldwide. New and more effective therapies are therefore urgently needed. Recent studies have shown that immunogenicity of whole ovarian tumor cells and subsequent T cell response were potentiated by(More)
The use of a bispecific antibody (BsAb) is a promising and highly specific approach to cancer therapy. In the present study, a fully human recombinant single chain variable fragment BsAb against human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER)2 and cluster of differentiation (CD)3 was constructed with the aim of developing an effective treatment for breast(More)
The CD40 receptor is a member of the tumour necrosis factor receptor family and is widely expressed on various cell types. The antitumour activity of CD40 agonist antibody has been observed in B-cell-derived malignancies, but its activity on ovarian cancer remains unclear. However, in this paper, we first confirmed that the anti-CD40 agonist antibody could(More)
