  • Publication number: 20050037445
    Abstract: The present invention describes methods for identification of molecules expressed at a different level on the cell surface of cancer cells compared to non-malignant cells and methods of identification of cancer specific promoters to be used singly or in combination for delivery and expression of therapeutic genes for treatment of cancer. The invention furthermore describes targeting complexes targeted to cell surface molecules identified by the methods of the invention. In embodiments of the invention said targeting complexes comprise the promoters identified by the methods of the invention. In addition the invention describes methods of identifying binding partners for the cell surface molecules and the binding partners per se. Methods of treatment using the targeting complexes and uses of the targeting complexes for the preparation of a medicament arc also disclosed by the invention. Furthermore, the invention describes uses of the cell surface molecules or fragments thereof for preparation of vaccines.

  • Publication number: 20030159178
    Abstract: Methods for providing transgenic plants and parts hereof that, relative to the wild type state, is modified in a complex cell wall polysaccharide structure including pectins and hemicelluloses, the modification being in the overall glycosidic linkage pattern or the monosaccharide profile, comprising transforming a plant cell with a nucleotide sequence that causes an altered production of a complex cell wall polysaccharide-modifying enzyme such as endo-rhamnogalacturonan hydrolase, an endo-rhamnogalacturonan lyase, an endo-galactanase, an endo-arabinanase, an arabinofuranosidase, a galactosidase such as a beta-galactosidase, a xylosidase and an exo-galacturosidase. The modification can occur in vivo or post harvest, in which latter case the modifying enzyme is separated in the growing plant from its substrate, e.g. by targeting the enzyme to the Golgi, the endoplasmic reticulum or a vacuole, or is in a form that is inactive in the plant.
