The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety of intratumoral Polyinosinicpolycytidylic acid stabilized with polylysine and carboxymethylcellulose (poly-ICLC)(Hiltonol®) i...
RATIONALE: Biological therapies such as poly-ICLC use different ways to stimulate the immune system and stop tumor cells from growing. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how poly-IC...
This is a pilot vaccine study in adults with either WHO grade II astrocytoma or oligoastrocytoma. The purpose of this study is test the safety and efficacy of an experimental tumor vaccine...
This is a pilot vaccine study in adults with recurrent WHO Grade II gliomas. The purpose of this study is to test the safety and efficacy of an experimental tumor vaccine made from peptide...
The main purpose of this study is to determine the dose of poly-ICLC that is safe and tolerable when it is combined with pembrolizumab in patients with colon cancer. This study will also e...
The potential protection of poly-ICLC (Hiltonol) a double stranded RNA (dsRNA) against EZV infection was assessed with prophylactic and therapeutic administration to wild type and TLR3-negative mice, ...
Peptide vaccines offer the opportunity to elicit glioma-specific T cells with tumor killing ability. Using antigens eluted from the surface of glioblastoma samples, we designed a phase I/II study to t...
The interaction of [Ru(phen)dppz-idzo] (phen = 1,10-phenanthroline, dppz-idzo = dppz-imidazolone) with triplex RNA poly(U)·poly(A)*poly(U) was carried out by using spectroscopic and viscometr...
Coordination polymerizations of 1-vinylnaphthalene (1VN), 2-vinylnaphthalene (2VN) and 6-methoxy-2-vinylnaphthalene (MVN) are carried out at room temperature by using the half-sandwich scandium precur...
OEGylation is an attractive approach to modifying poly(amino acid)s. OEG conjugation improves water-solubility of poly(amino acid)s, and confers possible thermal-responsive functionality for the conju...
A poly(A) binding protein that is involved in promoting the extension of the poly A tails of MRNA. The protein requires a minimum of ten ADENOSINE nucleotides in order for binding to mRNA. Once bound it works in conjunction with CLEAVAGE AND POLYADENYLATION SPECIFICITY FACTOR to stimulate the rate of poly A synthesis by POLY A POLYMERASE. Once poly-A tails reach around 250 nucleotides in length poly(A) binding protein II no longer stimulates POLYADENYLATION. Mutations within a GCG repeat region in the gene for poly(A) binding protein II have been shown to cause the disease MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY, OCULOPHARYNGEAL.
A poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase that contains two ZINC FINGERS in its N-terminal DNA-binding region. It modifies NUCLEAR PROTEINS involved in chromatin architecture and BASE EXCISION REPAIR with POLY ADENOSINE DIPHOSPHATE RIBOSE.
A poly(A) binding protein that has a variety of functions such as mRNA stabilization and protection of RNA from nuclease activity. Although poly(A) binding protein I is considered a major cytoplasmic RNA-binding protein it is also found in the CELL NUCLEUS and may be involved in transport of mRNP particles.
Post-translational modification of proteins with POLY ADENOSINE DIPHOSPHATE RIBOSE.
The addition of a tail of polyadenylic acid (POLY A) to the 3' end of mRNA (RNA, MESSENGER). Polyadenylation involves recognizing the processing site signal, (AAUAAA), and cleaving of the mRNA to create a 3' OH terminal end to which poly A polymerase (POLYNUCLEOTIDE ADENYLYLTRANSFERASE) adds 60-200 adenylate residues. The 3' end processing of some messenger RNAs, such as histone mRNA, is carried out by a different process that does not include the addition of poly A as described here.
