Although promising, the clinical benefit provided by dendritic cell (DC)-based vaccines is still limited and the choice of the optimal antigen formulation is still an unresolved issue. We have developed a new DC-based vaccination protocol for aggressive and/or refractory lymphomas which combines the unique features of interferon-conditioned DC (IFN-DC) with highly immunogenic tumor cell lysates (TCL) obtained from lymphoma cells undergoing immunogenic cell death. We show that treatment of mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) cell lines with 9-cis-retinoic acid and IFNα (RA/IFNα) induces early membrane exposure of Calreticulin, HSP70 and 90 together with CD47 down-regulation and enhanced HMGB1 secretion...

The aim of the present study was to examine the effects of varied high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) values on survival rate, proliferation rate, cell multipotency (transcript expression of SOX2, C-MYC, and REX1) and apoptosis (expression of phosphatidylserine (PS), SURVIVIN at the RNA level and BAX at the protein level) of porcine mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). MSCs were isolated from porcine bone marrow and cultured in vitro. Before cryopreservation and storage in liquid nitrogen, MSCs were subjected to HHP at the varied pressures of 20, 30, 40, 50, or 60 MPa for 1 h at 24°C...

Tetrandrine is a dibenzyltetrahydroisoquinoline alkaloid, isolated from traditional Chinese medicinal plant Stephania tetrandra, with anti-tumor activity. Our previous study identified several derivatives of tetrandrine showing better activities than parental compound against human hepatocellular carcinoma cells. To increase diversity and cytotoxic activities of the original compound, a series of novel 14-urea-tetrandrine derivatives were synthesized through structural modification of tetrandrine. These derivaties demonstrated a moderate to strong anti-proliferative activities against human cell lines HEL and K562 (Leukemia), prostate (PC3), breast (MDA-MB-231) and melanoma (WM9)...

Ubiquitin specific peptidase 9, X-linked (USP9X), a significant regulatory protease in protein ubiquitination, has been proven to act as a proto-oncogene in several types of cancers, such as cervix, colon, breast, brain and lung cancers. The prognosis of patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is extremely poor due to its high invasive and metastatic abilities. Nevertheless, whether USP9X acts as a proto-oncogene or a tumor-suppressor gene in PDAC is controversial and the mechanism of metastasis remains unknown...

The present study was designed to assess the expression of microRNA-542-3p (miR-542-3p) in human colon cancer and investigate the possible molecular mechanisms underlying the effect of miR-542-3p on the growth and invasion of colon cancer cells. We found that miR-542-3p expression was downregulated in colon cancer patient tissues, compared with that observed in the control group. Silencing of miR‑542-3p expression significantly promoted cell viability and inhibited apoptosis. In addition, overexpression of miR-542-3p significantly reduced cell viability and promoted apoptosis in colon cancer cells...

BACKGROUND: We have previously validated three novel CD44-downstream positively regulated transcriptional targets, including Cortactin, Survivin and TGF-β2, and further characterized the players underlying their separate signaling pathways. In the present study, we identified CD146 as a potential novel target, negatively regulated by CD44. While the exact function of CD146 in breast cancer (BC) is not completely understood, substantial evidence from our work and others support the hypothesis that CD146 is a suppressor of breast tumor progression...

As discovered by Warburg 80 years ago most malignant cells rely more on glycolysis than normal cells. The high rate of glycolysis provides faster ATP production and greater lactic acid for tumor proliferation and invasion, thus indicating a potential target in anticancer therapy. Our previous studies demonstrated that 3-bromopyruvate (3-BrPA) and sodium citrate (SCT) inhibited tumor cell proliferation in vitro. However, the underlying mechanisms still warrant further investigation. In the present study, we employed the human SGC-7901 gastric cancer cell line, built an orthotopic xenograft model in nude mice, examined the treatment response by 18F-FDG PET/CT and investigated the mechanisms of 3-BrPA and SCT in vivo...

It has been previously reported that increased expression of coiled‑coil domain containing 34 (CCDC34), a member of the CCDCs family, may promote the proliferation and invasion of bladder cancer cells. However, its role in colorectal cancer (CRC) remains unclear. The present study investigated CCDC34 expression in CRC tissues and determined the association between CCDC34 expression and biological characteristics in patients with CRC. Additionally, the variation of cell activity, apoptosis, invasion and associated mechanisms were evaluated following CCDC34 inhibition in SW620 cells with small interfering RNA (siRNA)...

In cancers, apoptosis signaling pathways and cell survival and growth pathways responsible for resistance to conventional treatments, such as Pi3K/Akt/mTOR and mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) become dysregulated. Recently, alternative treatments to promote tumor cell death have become important. The present study reports on the antitumor and cytoprotective action of gold nanoparticles (GNPs) and carvedilol in combination and in isolated application. Apoptosis was analyzed by FITC/propidium iodide staining flow cytometry; caspase-3, caspase-8, Bcl-2 and MAPK/ERK activity by immunofluorescence microscopy; gene expression of proteins related to cell death as Akt, mTOR, EGFR, MDR1, survivin, FADD and Apaf, by the real-time PCR; and western blot analysis for MAPK/ERK, Akt and mTOR...

Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) is a genetically heterogeneous, severe and rapidly progressing disease triggered by blocking granulocyte or monocyte differentiation and maturation. Overexpression of myeloid cell leukaemia-1 (Mcl-1) and Survivin is associated with drug resistance, tumour progression and inhibition of apoptotic mechanisms in leukaemia and several cancers. In the present study, we examined the combined effect of etoposide and dual siRNA-mediated silencing of Mcl-1 and Survivin on U-937 AML cells...

Overexpression of the survivin gene contributes to tumorigenesis; it has been recognized as an important target for cancer therapy. In the present study, survivin expression was suppressed using recombinant plasmid mediated short hairpin RNAs (shRNAs) that were constructed to target exonic or intronic sequences of the survivin gene. In addition, a negative control shRNA was constructed. HeLa cells were transfected with specific shRNA constructs and the blocking efficiency of each shRNA was assessed at the mRNA and protein levels; and the five shRNA constructs with higher blocking efficiency were selected...

The effect of gene silencing by survivin siRNA (siSurvivin) on the proliferation and apoptosis of lung tumor has been attracted more interest. GABAB receptor ligand-directed nanoparticles consisting of baclofen functionalized trimethyl chitosan (Bac-TMC) as polymeric carriers, tripolyphosphate (TPP) as ionic crosslinker, and siSurvivin as therapeutic genes, were designed to enhance the survivin gene silencing. GABAB receptor agonist baclofen (Bac) was initially introduced into TMC as a novel ligand. This Bac-TMC/TPP nanoparticles increased the uptake of survivin siRNA through the interaction with GABAB receptor, further resulted in efficient cell apoptosis and gene silencing...

There is considerable evidence that the inhibitor of apoptosis protein (IAP) family serves a role in tumorigenesis. The most studied IAP family members, survivin and X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis (XIAP), have been demonstrated to serve as biomarkers in distinct tumor entities. Thus, the present study aimed to investigate the expression levels of both IAPs in the tumor center, invasion front and lymph node metastases of surgically resected gastric cancer (GC) specimens. Tissue microarrays containing samples from 201 primary GCs were analyzed...
