Gene expression in tumor cells and stroma in dsRed 4T1 tumors in eGFP-expressing mice with and without enhanced oxygenation
(BioMed Central Ltd., 2012-01-17)
<p><strong>Background</strong> The tumor microenvironment is pivotal in tumor progression. Thus, we aimed to develop a mammary tumor model to elucidate molecular characteristics in the stroma versus the tumor cell compartment ...
Expression Profiling of Major Histocompatibility and Natural Killer Complex Genes Reveals Candidates for Controlling Risk of Graft versus Host Disease
(Public Library of Science, 2011-01-28)
Background: The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) is the most important genomic region that contributes to the risk of graft versus host disease (GVHD) after haematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Matching of MHC ...
CDR2 antigen and Yo antibodies
Paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration (PCD) is often associated with Yo antibodies that are directed against human cerebellar degeneration-related protein 2 (CDR2). Such antibodies may also be found in ovarian cancer ...
Maturation of monocyte derived dendritic cells with OK432 boosts IL-12p70 secretion and conveys strong T-cell responses
(BioMed Central, 2011-01-05)
Background: Design of tumour specific immunotherapies using the patients’ own dendritic cells (DC) is a fast advancing scientific field. The functional qualities of the DC generated in vitro are critical, and today’s ...
Amplification of the 20q Chromosomal Arm Occurs Early in Tumorigenic Transformation and May Initiate Cancer
(Public Library of Science, 2011-01-31)
Duplication of chromosomal arm 20q occurs in prostate, cervical, colon, gastric, bladder, melanoma, pancreas and breast cancer, suggesting that 20q amplification may play a causal role in tumorigenesis. According to an ...
Proteogenomic Analysis of Polymorphisms and Gene Annotation Divergences in Prokaryotes using a Clustered Mass Spectrometry-Friendly Database
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 2011-01)
Precise annotation of genes or open reading frames is still a difficult task that results in divergence even for data generated from the same genomic sequence. This has an impact in further proteomic studies, and also ...
Burkitt Lymphoma in Uganda. A study of some biological and epidemiological aspects of endemic Burkitt lymphoma
(The University of Bergen, 2011-08-25)
Salivary glands of primary Sjögren’s syndrome patients express factors vital for plasma cell survival
(BioMed Central, 2011-01-07)
Introduction: The presence of circulating Ro/SSA and La/SSB autoantibodies has become an important marker in the classification criteria for primary Sjögren’s syndrome (pSS). Plasma cells producing these autoantibodies ...
Proteomic analysis of total cellular proteins of human neutrophils
(BioMed Central, 2009-08-31)
<p>Background: Neutrophils are the most abundant leukocytes in peripheral blood and represent one of the most important elements of innate immunity. Recent subcellular proteomic studies have focused on the identification ...
