INVENTION: The goal of oncolytic viral therapy is to specifically infect and kill tumor cells without causing damage to normal cells. Although adenovirus is one of the most commonly used gene transfer vectors in basic and pre-clinical research, their potential as effective oncolytic viruses has been greatly limited by the reliance on the common serotypes Ad2 and Ad5 and the technical difficulties associated with the manipulation ...Wed, 09 Apr 2014 19:28:52 GMTotd@salk.edu Viral Cancer Immunotherapy Viral Cancer Immunotherapy Modular construction of targeted, systemically delivered oncolytic adenovirus for immunotherapy of cancer. INVENTION: Oncolytic viruses are exquisite tumor-selective, multi-mechanistic antitumor agents that can kill cancer cells, not just through direct oncolysis, but also via immunogenic cell death. These viruses are growing in importance as agents to stimulate the antitumor immune response, break immune tolerance in the tumor microenvironment, and as vehicles to deliver tumor antigens and immuno-stimulatory agents for vaccines. Multimodal immunoge...Wed, 09 Apr 2014 19:28:51 GMTotd@salk.edu Tumor Diagnostics, 09 Apr 2014 19:28:51 GMTotd@salk.edu Assembly Method Adenovirus Assembly Platform Custom, rapid and systematic assembly of recombinant adenoviral genomes from modular parts. INVENTION: Although adenoviral vectors are regularly used for the delivery of exogenous DNA to mammalian cells for basic science research, vaccines and gene therapy, the potential of adenoviral vectors in several applications has been greatly hindered by the inability to manipulate the 36kb viral genome rapidly and systematically. In addition, the adenoviral vectors currently in use are generally limited to 2 adenovirus (Ad) serotypes 2 and 5, which restrict...Wed, 09 Apr 2014 19:28:50 GMTotd@salk.edu - a novel gene indispensible for multiciliate cell differentiation, 28 Mar 2014 12:05:13 GMTotd@salk.edu (LIM homeobox 2) conditional knock-out mice (Lhx2 floxed), 28 Mar 2014 12:05:11 GMTotd@salk.edu of EIN2 Protein to Promote Fruit Ripening and Increase Plant Biomass, 17 Feb 2014 15:03:13 GMTotd@salk.edu Novel Transcription Factors Affecting Ethylene Sensitivity in Plants, 17 Feb 2014 15:03:12 GMTotd@salk.edu Insensitive Plants, 17 Feb 2014 15:03:11 GMTotd@salk.edu Model for Studying Male Fertility and Stermatogenesis, 30 Jan 2014 12:54:06 GMTotd@salk.edu Factor Overproducing Transgenic Mice, 30 Jan 2014 10:50:11 GMTotd@salk.edu Packaging Cell Line Generating High-titer Vectors, 30 Jan 2014 10:50:11 GMTotd@salk.edu A Novel Gene for Extending Lifetime of Flowers and Fruits, 18 Jan 2014 14:45:58 GMTotd@salk.edu Mutant Coordinates Auxin and Ethylene Biosynthesis in Shade Avoidance Responses, 06 Jan 2014 12:53:44 GMTotd@salk.edu Cell Lines (GT1-1, 1-3 and 1-7), 24 Dec 2013 12:08:33 GMTotd@salk.edu mouse hippocampal cell line (HT22) mouse hippocampal cell line (HT22) INVENTION: Investigators from the Salk have developed an immortalized mouse hippocampal cell line, HT22, which is a sub-line derived from parent HT4 cells that were originally immortalized from primary mouse hippocampal neuronal culture.

Colonal cells lines established from these tumors express the endogenous mouse alpha-subunit gene and synthesize and secrete alpha-subunit protein. However, they do not express beta-subunit genes. Alpha-subunit...Tue, 24 Dec 2013 12:08:32 GMTotd@salk.edu pituitary cell line producing a-TSH Pituitary Cell Line Producing a-TSH INVENTION: The anterior pituitary contains multiple endocrine cell types that secrete individual hormones. Using the transplantable thyrotrope tumor MGH101A, investigators at the Salk have developed a clonal and continuous cell line in which to study the regulation of the alpha-subunit of thyrotropin (TSH) free of other hormones and cell types. This cell line expresses alpha-subunit mRNA and secretes alpha-subunit protein. These cells do not express the beta-subunit of TSH or respond to TRH or thyroid hormone.
