In this study, we investigated the expression of GLUT1 and the further glycolysis-related genes hexokinase 1 and 2 (HK1, HK2), lactate dehydrogenase A (LDH-A) and monocarboxylate transporters 1 and 4 (MCT1, MCT4) in eleven human melanoma cell lines under normoxic and hypoxic conditions. Furthermore, a set of 25 human malignant melanoma tissue samples was analyzed.Under hypoxic conditions, we could observe a significant upregulation of hypoxia-inducible factor 1 alpha (HIF-1a) target genes GLUT1, HK2 and LDH-A, but not MCT4. While under normoxic conditions the expression of glycolysis-related genes showed no correlation wit...

Abstract The complexity of the immune response and diversity of targets challenges conventional conceptual frameworks used in selecting and monitoring treatment with immune check-point inhibitors. The limitations of anatomic imaging in assessing response have been recognized. Varying patterns of response have been recognized. These patterns have different implications for the continuation and duration of therapy. Evidence supporting the role of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography as a prognostic biomarker and in characterizing response is presented. An added benefit of this appr...

From the first description of an entity akin to our present understanding of Melanoma by Hippocrates of Cos in the fifth century bce, to the coinage of the term (melas “dark,” oma “tumor”) by Carswell in the nineteenth century, not much changed in the understanding or the management of this disease. The next century saw the application of increasingly radical surgery in an attempt to extirpate the disease without appreciable success in the outcomes for adv anced disease. From essentially useless chemotherapy in 1950 to 1980 with dacarbazine, it was not until the 1990s that first glimmer of hope was ...

The impact of intratumoral heterogeneity (ITH) and the resultant neoantigen landscape on T cell immunity are poorly understood. ITH is a widely recognized feature of solid tumors and poses distinct challenges related to the development of effective therapeutic strategies, including cancer neoantigen vaccines. Here, we performed deep targeted DNA sequencing...

-Hui Lee Nan-Shan Chang Membrane hyaluronidase Hyal-2 supports cancer cell growth. Inhibition of Hyal-2 by specific antibody against Hyal-2 or pY216-Hyal-2 leads to cancer growth suppression and prevention in vivo. By immunoelectron microscopy, tumor suppressor WWOX is shown to be anchored, in part, in the cell membrane by Hyal-2. Alternatively, WWOX undergoes self-polymerization and localizes in the cell membrane. Proapoptotic pY33-WWOX binds Hyal-2, and TGF-β induces internalization of the pY33-WWOX/Hyal-2 complex to the nucleus for causing cell death. In contrast, when pY33 is downregulated and pS14 upreg...

Conclusions/interpretationThese results demonstrate a fundamental role for AIM2 in energy metabolism, inflammation and insulin resistance. Our studies establish a novel link between the innate immunity proteins, AIM2 and p202, and metabolism.
