Development of a novel efficient method to construct an adenovirus library displaying random peptides on the fiber knob.

Redirection of adenovirus vectors by engineering the capsid-coding region has shown limited success because proper targeting ligands are generally unk...

Retargeting adenovirus serotype 48 fiber knob domain by peptide incorporation.
Adenovirus type 5 (Ad5) is a commonly used vector for gene therapy, but its efficacy is limited by high seroprevalence and off-target hepatic and splenic sequestration. In order to circumvent these limitations, the use of vectors derived from rare sp

FragBuilder: an efficient Python library to setup quantum chemistry calculations on peptides models.
We present a powerful Python library to quickly and efficiently generate realistic peptide model structures. The library makes it possible to quickly set up quantum mechanical calculations on model peptide structures. It is possible to manually speci

Construction and optimization of an efficient amplification method of a random ssDNA library by asymmetric emulsion PCR.
Construction of a random ssDNA sublibrary is an important step of the aptamer screening process. The available construction methods include asymmetric PCR, biotin-streptavidin separation, and lambda exonuclease digestions, in which PCR amplification

Development of an efficient glucosinolate extraction method.
Glucosinolates, anionic sulfur rich secondary metabolites, have been extensively studied because of their occurrence in the agriculturally important brassicaceae and their impact on human and animal health. There is also increasing interest in the bi

Truly random bit generation based on a novel random Brillouin fiber laser.
We propose a novel dual-emission random Brillouin fiber laser (RBFL) with bidirectional pumping operation. Numerical simulations and experimental verification of the chaotic temporal and statistical properties of the RBFL are conducted, revealing int

Incorporation of Peptides Targeting EGFR and FGFR1 into the Adenoviral Fiber Knob Domain and Their Evaluation as Targeted Cancer Therapies.
Oncolytic virotherapies based on adenovirus 5 (Ad5) hold promise as adjunctive cancer therapies; however, their efficacy when delivered systemically is hampered by poor target cell specificity and preexisting anti-Ad5 immunity. Ovarian cancer represe

Identification of high-affinity VEGFR3-binding peptides through a phage-displayed random peptide library.
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) interaction with its receptor, VEGFR-3/Flt-4, regulates lymphangiogenesis. VEGFR-3/Flt-4 expression in cancer cells has been correlated with clinical stage, lymph node metastasis, and lymphatic invasion. The

Retargeted oncolytic adenovirus displaying a single variable domain of camelid heavy-chain-only antibody in a fiber protein.
Conditionally replicative adenoviruses are promising agents for oncolytic virotherapy. Various approaches have been attempted to retarget adenoviruses to tumor-specific antigens to circumvent deficiency of receptor for adenoviral binding and to provi

Generation of a Novel Bacteriophage Library Displaying scFv Antibody Fragments from the Natural Buffalo Host to Identify Antigens from Adult Schistosoma japonicum for Diagnostic Development.
The development of effective diagnostic tools will be essential in the continuing fight to reduce schistosome infection; however, the diagnostic tests available to date are generally laborious and difficult to implement in current parasite control st
