  • Publication number: 20200369785
    Abstract: IgG epitope and applications thereof as a target are provided. The IgG epitope is the CH1 domain of non-B cell-derived IgG, and there is N-glycosylated sialic acid modification at the Asn162 site of the domain. The realization of its antigen functions must depend on the sialylation of the site. The present invention further discloses the applications of the IgG epitope as a drug target in preparing drugs for diagnosis and/or treatment of epithelial tumors. In addition, our studies showed that this antigen depends on the sialylation of Asn162 site as a drug target, and the sialylation of this site must depend on sialyltransferase ST3GAL4, indicating that the enzyme can be used as a drug target for preparing tumor therapeutic drugs. Further, integrin ?4 is co-expressed and co-localized with IgG containing the epitope. IgG can be used as a marker for preparing drugs for the auxiliary detection of epithelial tumors.

  • Publication number: 20200232089
    Abstract: A semiconductor device and a method of fabricating the device are disclosed. The method of forming a metal layer includes: placing a substrate in a sputtering chamber; forming a first metal sub-layer on the substrate by performing a magnetron sputtering process; and forming a second metal sub-layer on the first metal sub-layer by performing another magnetron sputtering process and concurrently introducing a heated gas stream in the sputtering chamber, wherein the first metal sub-layer and the second metal sub-layer together constitute the metal layer and are each formed of aluminum doped with copper. The metal layer resulting from this method contains uniformly-sized small crystal grains separated from one another by minimal gaps between their grain boundaries. This imparts to the metal layer high surface flatness with fewer undesired bumps and hence good appearance, resulting in an increase in its yield.
