KGLP-1, a 31-amino acid glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) analogue, has a great therapeutic potential for anti-diabetes. In this work, a strategy for expression and purification of functional KGLP-1 peptide has been established. KGLP-1 cDNA was fused with glutathione S-transferase (GST), with an enterokinase cleavage site in the fusion junction. The(More)
Glioblastomas are highly invasive intracerebral tumors that are known to express the CD44 cell adhesion molecule. Human glioma cell adhesion and invasion in vitro may in part be mediated by the interaction of CD44 with extracellular matrix proteins. To suppress the growth and invasive effects of CD44 expression on primary brain tumors we have designed two(More)
Our laboratory and others have shown alternative splicing of up to ten exons at a discrete extracellular site to be primarily responsible for the generation of CD44 variant (CD44v) isoforms. Based on clear differences in the expression of these CD44v isoforms between normal and malignant tissues, we believe that elucidation of the mechanisms underlying the(More)
