1. The amyloid precursor protein (APP) is widely distributed among eukaryotic cells, however, its precise role in cellular functioning is not fully clarified. APP is glycoprotein membrane constituent and it may facilitate membrane associated functions. 2. The aim of the present study was to examine the possibility that APP may play a role in mediating(More)
PURPOSE Radiation-induced gastrointestinal syndrome (RIGS) is due to the clonogenic loss of crypt cells and villi depopulation, resulting in disruption of mucosal barrier, bacterial invasion, inflammation and sepsis. Intestinal macrophages could recognize invading bacterial DNA via TLR9 receptors and transmit regenerative signals to the neighboring crypt.(More)
PURPOSE Recent studies have shown that a new generation of synthetic agonist of Toll-like receptor (TLR) 9 consisting a 3'-3'-attached structure and a dCp7-deaza-dG dinucultodie shows more potent immunostimulatory effects in both mouse and human than conventional CpG oligonucleotides. Radiation therapy (RT) provides a source of tumor antigens that are(More)
Oligonucleotides containing an immune-stimulatory motif and an immune-regulatory motif act as antagonists of Toll-like receptor (TLR)7 and TLR9. In the present study, we designed and synthesized oligonucleotide-based antagonists of TLR7, 8 and 9 containing a 7-deaza-dG or arabino-G modification in the immune-stimulatory motif and 2'-O-methylribonucleotides(More)
BACKGROUND The MDM2 oncogene functions as a negative feedback regulator of the p53 tumor suppressor. Abnormal expression of MDM2 in tumors may attenuate the p53-mediated growth arrest and apoptosis response, resulting in increased cell proliferation and resistance to chemotherapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS We have developed phosphorothioate antisense(More)
BACKGROUND Targeting the mammalian target of rapamycin by everolimus is a successful approach for renal cell carcinoma (RCC) therapy. The Toll-like receptor 9 agonist immune modulatory oligonucleotide (IMO) exhibits direct antitumour and antiangiogenic activity and cooperates with both epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and vascular endothelial growth(More)
The use of antisense oligonucleotides represents a novel, genetically based therapy. The biostability and pharmacokinetics of a 33-mer self-stabilized oligodeoxynucleotide with significant anti-HIV activity was determined in rats after intravenous administration of [35S]oligodeoxynucleotide. Plasma disappearance of the labeled oligodeoxynucleotide could be(More)
