Ciba Foundation Symposium 209 - Oligonucleotides as Therapeutic Agents

Using oligonucleotides as healing brokers rests upon their skill to intervene, in a sequence-specific demeanour, with the basic equipment of protein synthesis both by means of binding to the mRNAs transcribed from a gene or via binding on to a goal gene. This strategy can be utilized not just for inhibition of the synthesis of host proteins but in addition of these required through invading pathogens.

MicroRNA in Development and in the Progression of Cancer

MiRNAs are a category of endogenous, small non-protein coding RNA molecules (~ 22 nucleotides) that are novel post-transcriptional regulators of gene expression. for the reason that we now have 1000's of miRNAs, the main problem is now to appreciate their particular organic functionality. actually the experimental facts means that signaling pathways may be perfect applicants for miRNA-mediated legislation.

VEGF mutants that bind selectively to VEGFR-2 are fully active endothelial cell mitogens, chemoattractants, and permeability-enhancing agents, whereas mutants specific for VEGFR-1 are devoid of all three activities (107). In addition, VEGF-E, a homolog of VEGF identified in the genome of the parapoxvirus Orf virus (108), which shows VEGF-like mitogenic and permeability-enhancing effects, binds and activates VEGFR-2 but fails to bind VEGFR-1 (109,110). 3 NEUROPILIN (NRP)1 AND NRP2 Certain tumor and endothelial cells express cell-surface VEGF-binding sites distinct from the two known VEGF RTKs (111).
