The Analyst, 144(11), 3601-3612 (2019-05-09)
Porous graphitized carbon (PGC) based chromatography achieves high-resolution separation of glycan structures released from glycoproteins. This approach is especially valuable when resolving structurally similar isomers and for discovery of novel and/or sample-specific glycan structures. However, the implementation of PGC-based separations
Smita Thobhani et al.
Glycobiology, 19(3), 201-211 (2008-10-14)
As characterization of glycosylation is required for the licensing of recombinant glycoprotein therapeutics, technique comparability must be assessed. Eleven UK laboratories (seven industrial, two regulatory or government, two academic) participated in an inter-laboratory study to analyze N-glycans present in four

Anti-tumour necrosis factor [TNF] antibodies induce regulatory macrophages which display a phenotype resembling M2 type macrophages. Anti-TNF induced macrophages [Mϕind] have immunosuppressive and wound healing properties. The factors that contribute to the induction of Mϕind remain to be explored. Autophagy

Primary biliary cholangitis (PBC) and primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) are immune-mediated biliary diseases that demonstrate prominent and restricted genetic association with human leukocyte antigen (HLA) alleles. In PBC, anti-mitochondrial antibodies (AMA) are specific and used as diagnostic biomarkers. PSC-relevant auto-antibodies

mAbs, 11(2), 388-400 (2018-12-14)
Despite major advances in antibody discovery technologies, the successful development of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) into effective therapeutic and diagnostic agents can often be impeded by developability liabilities, such as poor expression, low solubility, high viscosity and aggregation. Therefore, strategies to

Glioblastoma stem cells (GSCs) are invasive, treatment-resistant brain cancer cells that express downregulated in renal cell carcinoma (DRR), also called FAM107A, a genetic driver of GSC invasion. We developed antibody-antisense oligonucleotide (AON) conjugates to target and reduce DRR/FAM107A expression. Specifically

After fusion of the viral envelope with the plasma membrane, herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV1) capsids are transported along microtubules (MTs) from the cell periphery to the nucleus. The motor ATPase cytoplasmic dynein and its multisubunit cofactor dynactin mediate
Tingwan Sun et al.
mAbs, 5(6), 838-841 (2013-09-03)
Self-interaction of an antibody may lead to aggregation, low solubility or high viscosity. Rapid identification of highly developable leads remains challenging, even though progress has been made with the introduction of techniques such as self-interaction chromatography (SIC) and cross-interaction chromatography
Jie Cheng et al.
iScience, 25(1), 103588-103588 (2022-01-11)
HIV-specific T cells have diminished effector function and fail to control/eliminate the virus. IL-27, a member of the IL-6/IL-12 cytokine superfamily has been shown to inhibit HIV replication. However, whether or not IL-27 can enhance HIV-specific T cell function is largely unknown.
Stephanie Fischinger et al.
Journal of immunological methods, 473, 112630-112630 (2019-07-14)
The complement system plays a critical role in innate immune defense against pathogens, both via non-specific direct pathogen recognition and killing or via antigen-specific indirect recruitment by complement fixing antibodies. While various assays for measuring complement activation have been developed
B A Castro et al.
Oncogene, 36(26), 3749-3759 (2017-02-22)
Anti-angiogenic therapies for cancer such as VEGF neutralizing antibody bevacizumab have limited durability. While mechanisms of resistance remain undefined, it is likely that acquired resistance to anti-angiogenic therapy will involve alterations of the tumor microenvironment. We confirmed increased tumor-associated macrophages
Danny L Costantini et al.

Our goals in this study were to determine whether (111)In-trastuzumab coupled to peptides harboring nuclear localizing sequences (NLSs) could kill trastuzumab-resistant breast cancer cell lines through the emission of Auger electrons and whether the combination of radiosensitization with methotrexate (MTX)
Oren Hershkovitz et al.
Journal of immunology (Baltimore, Md. : 1950), 183(4), 2610-2621 (2009-07-29)
Dengue virus (DV) and West Nile virus (WNV) have become a global concern due to their widespread distribution and their ability to cause a variety of human diseases. Antiviral immune defenses involve NK cells. In the present study, we investigated
Oliver Florey et al.
Autophagy, 11(1), 88-99 (2014-12-09)
Recently a noncanonical activity of autophagy proteins has been discovered that targets lipidation of microtubule-associated protein 1 light chain 3 (LC3) onto macroendocytic vacuoles, including macropinosomes, phagosomes, and entotic vacuoles. While this pathway is distinct from canonical autophagy, the mechanism

Oncotarget, 8(7), 10785-10808 (2016-12-16)
Effective adoptive immunotherapy has proved elusive for many types of human cancer, often due to difficulties achieving robust expansion of natural tumor-specific T-cells from peripheral blood. We hypothesized that antigen-driven T-cell expansion might best be triggered in vitro by acute
