We previously reported endothelial-like differentiation (ELD) of immature dendritic cells (iDCs) in the microenvironment derived from EC9706 human esophageal squamous cell carcinoma conditioned medium (CM). However, the CM is far different from the esophageal carcinoma tissue of patients. In addition, the potential role of peri-esophageal carcinoma in the(More)
Endothelial-like differentiation of dendritic cells (DCs) is an interesting and significant phenomenon, which is worth further investigation. Here, we show that the tumor microenvironment derived from the supernatant of the SW620 human colon adenocarcinoma cell line and colon adenocarcinoma tissue homogenate can promote immature DCs (iDCs) to differentiate(More)
Endothelial-like differentiation of dendritic cells (DCs) is a new phenomenon, and the mechanism is still elusive. Here, we show that the tumor microenvironment derived from the human esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) cell line EC9706 can induce immature DCs (iDCs) differentiate toward endothelial cells, and become endothelial-like cells, but it has(More)
The differentially expressed genes between esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) with or without lymphatic metastasis were investigated by gene chip, and the lymphatic metastasis-associated genes were screened out. Expression array was used to detect the mRNA from both the primary carcinoma and the corresponding esophageal epithelium in 15 cases of(More)
Dendritic cells (DCs) are professional antigen-presenting cells that play an important role in anti-tumour immunity. Endothelial-like differentiation of DCs is an interesting phenomenon. The specific role of vascular endothelial growth factor-A (VEGF-A) on the differentiation of immature DCs (iDCs) and mature DCs (mDCs) is worth further research. Here, we(More)
Endothelial-like differentiation (ELD) of dendritic cells (DCs) is a poorly understood phenomenon. The present study evaluated the effect on the ELD of DCs by using human esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) cells with high or poor differentiation. The results demonstrated that KYSE450 (highly differentiated) and KYSE70 (poorly differentiated) cell(More)
To screen the genes associated with esophageal cancer, a cDNA microarray technique was established and used for the analysis of the gene expression profile in human esophageal cancer cell line ECa109. The results showed that 107 (12.08%) genes differentially expressed among 886 target genes were identified between ECa109 cell line and normal human(More)
Dendritic cells (DC) have been exploited for vaccination against cancer for years. DC loading autologous tumor lysate (ATL-DC) have been assessed in ongoing clinical trials, but frequently do not meet expectation. In this study, we found that mice immunized with ATL-DC induced less protective anti-tumor effect than immunized with DC alone. The percentage of(More)
