Transcriptional repression of E-cadherin, characteristic of epithelial to mesenchymal transition, is often found also during tumor cell invasion. At metastases, migratory fibroblasts sometimes revert to an epithelial phenotype, by a process involving regulation of the E-cadherin-beta-catenin complex. We investigated the molecular basis of this regulation,(More)

Influenza infections may cause serious morbidity, as well as mortality in the elderly. In the present study we vaccinated old and young mice of two strains with three synthetic recombinant constructs (Levi and Arnon, 1995. In: Chanock, R.M. et al. (Eds.), Vaccines 95. CSHL Press, New York, pp. 311-316) and examined their capacity to eliminate a challenge of(More)
A new vaccine, Multimeric-001, containing conserved linear epitopes from the HA, NP, and M1 proteins of influenza type A and type B strains was designed to protect against seasonal and pandemic influenza virus strains, regardless of mutations. We assessed its safety and tolerability and characterized humoral and cellular immune responses elicited by its(More)
