  • Publication number: 20070128593
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a gene and gene product, SGA-1M that is differentially expressed in cancer tissues and cell lines. Suppression Subtractive Hybridization and microarray screening were used to screen for differential expression of SGA-1M in cancer tissues and cell lines. Expression analysis has demonstrated overexpression of SGA-1M in breast cancer tissue and breast cancer derived cell lines, in ovarian cancer, skin cancer, a cancer of the lymphoid system, thyroid cancer, pancreatic cancer, stomach cancer, and lung cancer. The gene is expressed as a 1.95 kb mRNA. The full length cDNA comprises two open reading frames encoding polypeptides of 221 and 75 amino acids, respectively. Monitoring expression levels of SGA-1M is useful for the diagnosis and prognosis of cancer as well as for evaluating the risk of developing certain types of cancers and the risk of metastasis of cancer. Reagents that target SGA-1M are useful for the treatment of cancer.

  • Publication number: 20060121476
    Abstract: The present invention relates to nucleic and amino acid sequences of SGA-56M and variants thereof. An exemplary variant of SGA-56M is SGA-56Mv. SGA-56M and SGA-56Mv are differentially expressed in cancer tissues and transformed cell lines. In particular, these genes are expressed at elevated levels in breast cancer and lung cancer tissues and cell lines. The present invention is also directed to methods for diagnosing a cancer in a subject, determining the prognosis of a cancer patient, and/or monitoring the efficacy of a treatment regimen for a cancer patient. The present invention further provides methods for screening and identifying modulators (e.g., antagonists or agonists) of SGA-56M and/or SGA-56Mv expression and/or activity. Antagonists identified using the methods of the invention are useful for the treatment of cancer patients.

  • Patent number: 6955721
    Abstract: A coating apparatus for applying a coating liquid to a printing substrate. The coating apparatus has a rotatable first roll and a rotatable second roll, each having a surface energy. The second roll is positioned adjacent to the first roll and defines with the first roll a first nip through which the printing substrate passes A metering device is provided for applying a substantially uniform layer of coating liquid onto the second roll. The second roll in turn transfers the coating liquid to the printing substrate. The surface energy of the second roll is greater than the surface energy of the coating liquid. In one embodiment, the metering device includes a rotatable third roll and a doctor blade contacting the third roll, each having a surface energy. The surface energy of at least a portion of either or both the third roll and doctor blade is less than the surface energy of the coating liquid.
