A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Photo prise à l'avant (dans la protrusion) d'astrocytes primaires de rat en migration. Marquage par immunofluorescence montrant en rouge, p150 Glued, une protéine associée aux extrémités 'plus' des microtubules et en vert la tubuline des microtubules. La photographie montre l'accumulation de p150 Glued à l'avant des cellules en migration, où la protéine pourrait participer à l'ancrage des microtubules à la membrane plasmique. Pour essayer de corriger, les dérèglements observés lors de la migration des cellules d'astrocytes tumuraux ou gliomes on cherche à connaitre les mécanismes moléculaires fondamentaux qui controlent la polarisation et la migration cellulaires.

The authors have investigated a new way of combining cytokines with tumor cells to prepare anticancer vaccines. This method may offer an alternative to gene therapy approaches. It consists in anchoring recombinant cytokines to the cell membrane. Attachment is mediated by the transmembrane domain of diphtheria toxin (T) genetically fused to the cytokine and is triggered by an acid pH pulse. The authors found that the fusion protein T-hIL-2 anchored to the surface of tumor cells retained its IL-2 activity while remaining exposed for several days. Interestingly, vaccination of mice with these modified tumor cells induced a protective antitumor immunity mediated by tumor-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes. This procedure presents several advantages as compared with the conventional approaches based on the transfection of tumor cells with cytokine genes. It does not require the culture of tumor cells from the patients and the selection of transfected clones, it eliminates the safety problems connected with viral vectors, and it allows the control of the amount of cytokines delivered with the vaccine.
