    Abstract: The antiapoptotic Livin/ML-IAP gene has recently gained much attention as a potential new target for cancer therapy. Reports indicating that livin is expressed almost exclusively in tumours, but not in the corresponding normal tissue, suggested that the targeted inhibition of livin may present a novel tumour-specific therapeutic strategy. Here, we compared the expression of livin in renal cell carcinoma and in non-tumorous adult kidney tissue by quantitative real-time reverse transcription-PCR, immunoblotting, and immunohistochemistry. We found that livin expression was significantly increased in tumours (P=0.0077), but was also clearly detectable in non-tumorous adult kidney. Transcripts encoding Livin isoforms alpha and beta were found in both renal cell carcinoma and normal tissue, without obvious qualitative differences. Livin protein in renal cell carcinoma samples exhibited cytoplasmic and/or nuclear staining. In non-tumorous kidney tissue, Livin protein expression was only detectable in specific cell types and restricted to the cytoplasm. Thus, whereas the relative overexpression of livin in renal cell carcinoma indicates that it may still represent a therapeutic target to increase the apoptotic sensitivity of kidney cancer cells, this strategy is likely to be not tumour-specific

    Abstract: Endogenous tumor-specific T cells are detectable in patients with different tumor types including malignant melanoma (MM). They can control tumor growth, have impact on patient survival and correlate with improved clinical response to immune checkpoint therapy. Thus, they may represent a potent biomarker for respective treatment decisions. So far, major target antigens of endogenous MM-reactive T cells have not been determined systematically. Instead, autoantibodies are discussed as surrogate parameter for MM-specific T cells. Throughout a period of more than 60 days after tumor resection, we therefore determined in 38 non-metastasized primary MM patients and in healthy individuals by IFNgamma ELISpot and bead-based fluorescent multiplex assay major target antigens of spontaneous T cell and humoral responses using a broad panel of MM antigens and assessed the presence and suppressive impact of MM-reactive regulatory T cells (Tregs). We show that MM-reactive T cells are frequent in MM patients, transiently increase after tumor removal and are mostly directed against Melan-A/MART-1, Tyrosinase, NA17-A and p53. MM-specific Tregs were only detected in few patients and inhibited MM-reactive T cells particularly early after tumor resection. Tumor-specific autoantibodies occurred in most patients, but did not correlate with T cell responses. Thus, endogenous antibodies may not be reliable surrogate parameters of MM-reactive T cells.

    Abstract: The enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) gene has been recently linked to human malignancies where it may serve as a new target for cancer therapy. Here, we analyzed EZH2 expression in primary renal cell carcinoma (RCC) specimens and in nontumorous tissue samples from adult kidney. EZH2 transcripts were detectable in all RCC specimens examined. Expression levels were significantly higher in tumor tissue (p 〈= 0.0001) than in samples from normal adult kidney. Moreover, inhibition of endogenous EZH2 expression in RCC cell lines by RNA interference (RNAi) led to reduced proliferation and increased apoptosis in RCC cells. These data show that EZH2 is overexpressed in RCC. Furthermore, they indicate that the EZH2 gene plays a role for both the proliferation and the apoptosis resistance of RCC cells. Targeted inhibition of EZH2 could therefore represent a novel strategy to improve the therapeutic response of RCC. (C) 2008 Wilely-Liss, Inc
