The trend of increasing demand for high quality of service at the user terminal or user equipment (UE), coupled with the shortage of wireless spectrum, requires more advanced wireless communication techniques to mitigate intercell interference and increase the cell edge throughput. Coordinated multipoint (CoMP) transmission and reception techniques utilize(More)
Phosphoinositide-3-OH kinase (PI(3)K), activated through growth factor stimulation, generates a lipid second messenger, phosphatidylinositol-3,4,5-trisphosphate (PtdIns(3,4,5)P3). PtdIns(3,4,5)P3 is instrumental in signalling pathways that trigger cell activation, cytoskeletal rearrangement, survival and other reactions. However, some targets of(More)
Recombinant immunotoxins are hybrid proteins composed of an Fv that binds to a tumor antigen fused to a bacterial or plant toxin. Immunotoxin BL22 targets CD22 positive malignancies and is composed of an anti-CD22 Fv fused to a 38-kDa fragment of Pseudomonas exotoxin A (PE38). BL22 has produced many complete remissions in drug-resistant Hairy cell leukemia,(More)
The PATE gene is expressed in prostate and testis. To determine if PATE is expressed in other accessory tissues of the male genital tract, RT-PCR of the epididymis and seminal vesicle was performed. PATE mRNA was highly expressed in the epididymis and seminal vesicle. In situ hybridization of the testis showed PATE mRNA is strongly expressed in the(More)
BACKGROUND The pathogenesis of ulcerative colitis is unclear, but cytotoxic T lymphocytes infiltrating the mucosa have been implicated in mucosal damage. The Fas ligand (FasL), expressed on cytotoxic T lymphocytes, induces apoptosis in cells expressing Fas. AIM To analyse FasL expression in affected colonic mucosa to ascertain Fas-FasL interaction in(More)
In vitro antibody affinity maturation has generally been achieved by display of mouse or human antibodies on the surface of microorganisms (phage, bacteria, and yeast). However, problems with protein folding, posttranslational modification, and codon usage still limit the number of improved antibodies that can be obtained. An ideal system would select and(More)
Addition of polyethylene glycol to protein (PEGylation) to improve stability and other characteristics is mostly nonspecific and may occur at all lysine residues, some of which may be within or near an active site. Resultant PEGylated proteins are heterogeneous and can show markedly lower bioactivity. We attempted to develop a strategy for site-specific(More)
