PD-L1 is an immune checkpoint protein frequently overexpressed in tumors for immune escape. Therefore, targeting PD-L1 presents a promising avenue for immunotherapies. However, current monoclonal antibody-based therapies have poor overall response rates. In this review, we summarize the current progress on development of small molecules targeting PD-L1 stability for immunotherapy. View this paper.

Current Progress in Cancer Immunotherapies Using Small Molecules Targeting PD-L1 Stability

Received: 11 January 2021;  Published: 24 March 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2101127

Abstract

PD-L1 is an immune checkpoint protein that is frequently overexpressed by the cells in the tumor microenvironment. PD-L1 binds to PD-1 present on the activated antitumor T-cells, which allows for tumor immune escape. The ability of the PD-1/PD-L1 axis to suppress antitumor immunity enables its appli [...]

Development of a Novel Pipette Tip-Aided Cell Cloning Method for The Effective Isolation of Genome-Edited Porcine Cell

Received: 11 October 2020;  Published: 10 March 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2101126

Abstract

Direct colony cloning of adherent mammalian cells using rings or dilution cloning has been used frequently for obtaining stable transfectants after gene delivery. As an alternative to these methods, successful isolation of the cells in a single colony is possible by placing a trypsin-immersed small [...]

Translating RNA Splicing Analysis into Diagnosis and Therapy

Received: 31 December 2020;  Published: 08 March 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2101125

Abstract

A large proportion of rare disease patients remain undiagnosed and the vast majority of such conditions remain untreatable whether diagnosed or not. RNA splicing analysis is able to increase the diagnostic rate in rare disease by identifying cryptic splicing mutations and can help in interpreting th [...]

Genomic Analysis for Citrus Disease Detection

Received: 26 October 2020;  Published: 18 February 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2101124

Abstract

Citrus is an important group of globally produced fruit crops, holding great economic, cultural, and health value. Belonging to the Rutacaeae family, the genus Citrus includes some of the most iconic and widely appreciated variants of fruits such as the orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit, and tangerine [...]

In vitro Electroporation in the Presence of CRISPR/Cas9 Reagents as a Safe and Effective Method for Producing Biallelic Knock-Out Porcine Embryos

Received: 01 September 2020;  Published: 18 February 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2101123

Abstract

The production of genetically modified (GM) pigs is considered valuable in biomedical research for the development of model animals for various diseases and pigs with resistance against viral infection. The porcine genome may be modified using several methods, such as somatic cell nuclear transfer ( [...]
