The site-specific modification of proteins with fluorophores can render a protein fluorescent without compromising its function. To avoid self-quenching from multiple fluorophores installed in close proximity, we used Holliday junctions to label proteins site-specifically. Holliday junctions enable modification with multiple fluorophores at reasonably(More)
MUC1 is a shared tumor antigen expressed on >80% of human cancers. We completed the first prophylactic cancer vaccine clinical trial based on a non-viral antigen, MUC1, in healthy individuals at-risk for colon cancer. This trial provided a unique source of potentially effective and safe immunotherapeutic drugs, fully-human antibodies affinity-matured in a(More)
