Tunneling nanotubes: an alternate route for propagation of the bystander effect following oncolytic viral infection

Molecular Therapy Oncolytics 2016 December [Link] Ady J, Thayanithy V, Mojica K, Wong P, Carson J, Rao P, Fong Y, Lou E Abstract Tunneling nanotubes (TNTs) are ultrafine, filamentous actin-based cytoplasmic extensions which form spontaneously to connect cells at short and long-range distances. We have previously described long-range intercellular communication via TNTs connecting mesothelioma cells […]

Intrapleural Adenoviral-mediated Endothelial Cell Protein C Receptor Gene Transfer Suppresses the Progression of Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma in a Mouse Model

Scientific Reports 2016 November 11 [Link] Keshava S, Rao LV, Pendurthi UR Abstract Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is an aggressive thoracic cancer with a high mortality rate as it responds poorly to standard therapeutic interventions. Our recent studies showed that expression of endothelial cell protein C receptor (EPCR) in MPM cells suppresses tumorigenicity. The present […]
