A novel fusion suicide gene yeast CDglyTK plays a role in radio-gene therapy of nasopharyngeal carcinoma


To investigate a novel suicide gene for nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) therapy, the yCDglyTK gene was constructed by fusing yeast cytosine deaminase (CD) and herpes simplex type 1 thymidine kinase. The expression of the yCDglyTK gene was detected by RT-PCR and Western blotting, and its bioactivity was demonstrated by an MTT (3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5… (More)
