Anthracyclin-treated tumor cells are particularly effective in eliciting an anticancer immune response, whereas other DNA-damaging agents such as etoposide and mitomycin C do not induce immunogenic cell death. Here we show that anthracyclins induce the rapid, preapoptotic translocation of calreticulin (CRT) to the cell surface. Blockade or knockdown of CRT(More)
In this study we have used a newly isolated Yarrowia lipolytica yeast strain with a unique capacity to grow over a wide pH range (3.5–10.5), which makes it an excellent model system for studying H+- and Na+-coupled phosphate transport systems. Even at extreme growth conditions (low concentrations of extracellular phosphate, alkaline pH values) Y. lipolytica(More)
The multiple tyrosine kinase inhibitor sorafenib has recently demonstrated clinical effects in patients with androgen-independent prostate cancer. These observations provided the rational for investigating the anti-tumoral properties of this compound on prostate cancer cell lines at the molecular level. Two hormone refractory (PC3 and DU145) and one hormone(More)
