In this study, structural proteins of MERS-CoV were expressed in silkworm larvae and Bm5 cells for the development of vaccine candidates against MERS-CoV and diagnostic methods. The spike (S) protein of MERS-CoV lacking its transmembrane and cytoplasmic domains (SοTM) was secreted into the hemolymph of silkworm larvae using a bombyxin signal peptide and purified using affinity chromatography. The purified SοTM forms small nanoparticles as well as the full-length S protein and has the ability to bind human dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP4), which is a receptor of MERS-CoV. These results indicate that bioactive S...

Conclusion: SFTp is an uncommon benign neoplasm but it can have malignant features. Even in the case of recurrence, the main treatment is total surgical excision. Oncologic treatments can be tried in unresectable and metastatic cases. VATS can be used in surgical total excision for small diameter and appropriate tumors. Understanding the nature of these tumors, immunohistochemical, and genetic studies may be a guide in future.
