Impacting tumor cell-fate by targeting the inhibitor of apoptosis protein survivin.
Purpose: The role of survivin, an inhibitor of apoptosis protein, in TIIA-induced apoptosis has never been addressed before and hence was the primary goal of this study.
A, The germinal center cells, as well as a few paracortical cells in a reactive lymph node, show positivity for X linked inhibitor of apoptosis protein.
X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis protein (XIAP) was quantified by Western blotting analysis.
Livin, a recently described member of the inhibitor of apoptosis protein (IAP) family, contains a single baculovirus IAP repeat and a carboxyl-terminal RING finger (1-3).
For example, it is believed that small lymphocytic lymphoma/chronic lymphocytic leukemia (SLL/CLL) results from decreased apoptosis, which is supported by overexpression of antiapoptotic proteins such as BCL2, tumor necrosis factor [alpha], and TOSO (also known as Fas inhibitory molecule 3), and lack of expression of proapoptotic protein such as second mitochondrial-derived activator of caspases/direct inhibitor of apoptosis protein binding protein with low pI (Smac/DIABLO) and others.
Survivin, a recently described member of the inhibitor of apoptosis protein family, contains a single baculovirus inhibitor of apoptosis protein repeat and lacks a C-terminal RING finger (1).
Michael Berendt, Aegera President and CEO, stated, "We are very excited about the possibility of a new treatment for this devastating disease, and continue to believe that the Inhibitor of Apoptosis protein family, discovered by our founders, plays a central role in multiple disease indications.
