Prostaglandin E2-mediated adenosinergic effects on CD14+ cells: Self-amplifying immunosuppression in cancer

Oncoimmunology 2016 December [a href=”https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28344879″>Link] Al-Taei S, Salimu J, Spary LK, Clayton A, Lester JF, Tabi Z Abstract CD39 and CD73 are surface-expressed ectonucleotidases that hydrolyze ATP in a highly regulated, serial manner into ADP, AMP and adenosine. The end product, adenosine, has both tumor-promoting and immunosuppressive effects. The aim of this study was to […]
