Endoplasmic reticulum stress from unfolded proteins is associated with the proliferation of pancreatic tumor cells, making the many regulatory molecules of this pathway appealing targets for therapy. The objective of our study was to assess potential therapeutic efficacy of inhibitors of unfolded protein response (UPR) in pancreatic cancers focusing on(More)
Increasing evidence shows that NK cells regulate adaptive immunity, but the underlying mechanisms are not well understood. In this study, we show that activated human NK cells suppress autologous naive CD4 T cell proliferation in response to allogeneic dendritic cells (DCs) by selectively killing Ag-activated T cells. Naive CD4 T cells, which were initially(More)
Partial tandem duplication of MLL (MLL-PTD) characterizes acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients often with a poor prognosis. To understand the order of occurrence of MLL-PTD in relation to other major AML mutations and to identify novel mutations that may be present in this unique AML molecular subtype, exome and targeted sequencing was performed on 85(More)
