Polarization of tumor-associated neutrophil phenotype by TGF-beta: "N1" versus "N2" TAN.
TGF-beta blockade significantly slows tumor growth through many mechanisms, including activation of CD8(+) T cells and macrophages. Here, we show that TGF-beta blockade also increasesExpand

BRAF and RAS mutations in human lung cancer and melanoma.
BRAF encodes a RAS-regulated kinase that mediates cell growth and malignant transformation kinase pathway activation. Recently, we have identified activating BRAF mutations in 66% of melanomas and aExpand

Adhesion molecules and inflammatory injury
Neutrophil‐endothelial cell interactions are mediated by interacting sets of cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) and chemoattractant/activator molecules to form an “adhesion cascade.” The initial phase ofExpand

The C8/144B monoclonal antibody recognizes cytokeratin 15 and defines the location of human hair follicle stem cells.
Stem cells are vital for the homeostasis of self-renewing tissues such as the hair follicle. Epithelial stem cells have been implicated in tumorigenesis and wound healing, and their manipulation mayExpand

Gemcitabine Selectively Eliminates Splenic Gr-1+/CD11b+ Myeloid Suppressor Cells in Tumor-Bearing Animals and Enhances Antitumor Immune Activity
Purpose: Myeloid suppressor (Gr-1+/CD11b+) cells accumulate in the spleens of tumor-bearing mice where they contribute to immunosuppression by inhibiting the function of CD8+ T cells and by promotingExpand

The junctional adhesion molecule JAM-C regulates polarized transendothelial migration of neutrophils in vivo.
The migration of neutrophils into inflamed tissues is a fundamental component of innate immunity. A decisive step in this process is the polarized migration of blood neutrophils through endothelialExpand

Control of large, established tumor xenografts with genetically retargeted human T cells containing CD28 and CD137 domains
Mesothelin is a cell-surface molecule over-expressed on a large fraction of carcinomas, and thus is an attractive target of immunotherapy. A molecularly targeted therapy for these cancers was createdExpand

Cross-Talk between Myeloid-Derived Suppressor Cells and Macrophages Subverts Tumor Immunity toward a Type 2 Response1
Although the immune system has the potential to protect against malignancies, many individuals with cancer are immunosuppressed. Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSC) are elevated in many patientsExpand

Involvement of endothelial PECAM-1/CD31 in angiogenesis.
The adhesive interactions of endothelial cells with each other and the adhesion receptors that mediate these interactions are probably of fundamental importance to the process of angiogenesis. WeExpand
