Innovative site-specific anti-HER2 antibody-drug conjugate

Introduction Antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) have been studied for decades as a promising cancer treatment. As compared to conventional chemotherapy, ADCs have a larger therapeutic window because of their ability to target antigen-expressing tumor cells.1 As ADC drug development technology continues to evolve, several ADC drugs are being introduced to the…

Requirement of Xk and Vps13a for the P2X7-mediated phospholipid scrambling and cell lysis in mouse T cells

Significance The extracellular concentration of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) reaches several hundred micromoles in the inflamed tissues or tumor environment. A high concentration of ATP activates P2X7, a purinergic receptor, and induces the formation of a nonselective cation channel, accompanied by reversible phosphatidylserine (PtdSer) exposure, leading to cell lysis. Here, we…

In-Depth Analysis of Bacillus anthracis 16S rRNA Genes and Transcripts Reveals Intra- and Intergenomic Diversity and Facilitates Anthrax Detection

Various ratios of 16S-BA/BC-alleles constitute possible explanations for differences in FISH signals of cells of diverse B. anthracis strains (Fig. 1). Indeed, we found a significant correlation between 16S-BA/BC-allele ratios in sequenced genomes and mean intensities of the Cy3 FISH signals targeting the16S-BA-allele (tested with the cor.test function in R, Pearson’s…

Sod1 integrates oxygen availability to redox regulate NADPH production and the thiol redoxome

Significance Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase (Sod1) is a key antioxidant enzyme, and its importance is underscored by the fact that its ablation in cell and animal models results in oxidative stress; metabolic defects; and reductions in cell proliferation, viability, and lifespan. Curiously, Sod1 detoxifies superoxide radicals (O2•−) in a manner that…

p57 Suppresses the Pluripotency and Proliferation of Mouse Embryonic Stem Cells by Positively Regulating p53 Activation

Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) are pluripotent stem cells that have indefinite self-renewal capacities under appropriate culture conditions in vitro. The pluripotency maintenance and proliferation of these cells are delicately governed by the concert effect of a complex transcriptional regulatory network. Herein, we discovered that p57Kip2 (p57), a cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor…

Establishment of sunitinib-resistant CDX model of ccRCC

Introduction Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) accounts for approximately 2–3% of all malignant tumors, and its prevalence is rising. Metastatic RCC accounts for 25–30% of all RCC cases, and has an exceedingly poor prognosis.1 In 2020, among approximately 430,000 newly discovered cases of RCC, 179,000 died.2 Clear cell renal cell carcinoma…
