Cancer Targeting Gene-Viro-Therapy (CTGVT) is constructed by inserting an antitumor gene into an oncolytic virus (OV). It is actually an OV-gene therapy, which has much better antitumor effect than either gene therapy alone or virotherapy alone in our previously published papers. This study is a modification of CTGVT by inserting a colorectal cancer (CRC)(More)
Golgi apparatus is the organelle mainly functioning as protein processing and secretion. GOLPH2 is a resident Golgi glycoprotein, usually called GP73. Recent data displayed that GOLPH2 is a superb hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) marker candidate, and even its specificity is better than liver cancer marker AFP. Oncolytic adenoviruses are broadly used for(More)
Cancer Targeting Gene-Viro-Therapy (CTGVT) is a promising cancer therapeutical strategy that strengthens the anti-tumour effect of oncolytic virus by expressing inserted foreign anti-tumour genes. In this work, we constructed a novel adenoviral vector controlled by the tumour-specific survivin promoter on the basis of the ZD55 vector, which is an E1B55KD(More)
AIM The tumor suppressor in lung cancer-1 (TSLC1) is a candidate tumor suppressor of lung cancer, and frequently inactivated in primary non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In this study, we investigated the effects of TSLC1 mediated by a dual-regulated oncolytic adenovirus on lung cancer, and the mechanisms underlying the antitumor actions. METHODS The(More)
The exact molecular mechanism that mediates hypoxia-induced pulmonary fibrosis needs to be further clarified. The aim of this study was to explore the effect and underlying mechanism of angiotensin II (Ang II) on collagen synthesis in hypoxic human lung fibroblast (HLF) cells. The HLF-1 cell line was used for in vitro studies. Angiotensinogen (AGT),(More)
TNIK (TRAF2- and NCK-interacting kinase) was named because of its association with TRAF2 (tumor necrosis factor receptor-associated factor 2). But the relationship between TNIK and TRAF2 is still elusive, in addition to which the involvement of TNIK in JNK activation by TNFα hints that there maybe a linkage between TNIK and TRAF2. In this work, we(More)
Cancer stem cells (CSCs), also known as tumor-initiating cells, are highly metastatic, chemo-resistant and tumorigenic, and are critical for cancer development, maintenance and recurrence. Oncolytic adenovirus could targetedly kill CSCs and has been acted as a promising anticancer agent. Currently, a novel GP73-regulated oncolytic adenovirus GD55 was(More)
PD-L1, also known as CD274, plays a vital role in tumor cell related immune escape. It can be expressed on the cell surface of many solid tumors (Brahmer et al., 2012) and inhibits T cell proliferation and cytokine production by binding to the T cell surface receptor programmed death 1 (PD-1) or B7-1 (McClanahan et al., 2015). In 2013, targeting PD-1/ PD-L1(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has particularly high incidence rate in Asia and its resistance to the chemotherapeutic drugs and cell death make it intractable. Vaccinia virus (VV) is a potential vehicle and has been widely used in cancer therapy. SMAC/DIABLO is a critical factor in activating caspases and eliminating inhibition of IAPs when the programmed(More)
