hich was named dendritic cell NK lectin group receptor-1 (DNGR-1), was an endocytic receptor and that if an antibody that recognizes DNGR-1 was linked to a peptide it delivered the peptide specifically to DCs expressing CD8-alpha. CTL responses directed to the peptide were induced in mice vaccinated with the peptide-linked DNGR-1specific antibody and an adjuvant. Directing these CTL responses toward melanoma cells by linking the DNGR-1specific antibody to peptides from proteins overexpressed by a melanoma cell line eradicated melanoma in a therapeutic mouse model. Further, as expression of DNGR-1 in humans was found to be restricted to a subset of DCs with characteristics similar to mouse DCs expressing CD8-alpha, the authors suggested that targeting DCs via DNGR-1 might provide a new approach to tumor immunotherapy.

NEUROBIOLOGY: To protect against or to promote, that is the question about the role of the cellular process autophagy in Alzheimer disease

All neurodegenerative disorders (e.g. Alzheimer disease [AD], Parkinson disease, and Huntington disease) are characterized by the presence of protein aggregates in the brain and nerve cell death. Recent data have implicated a cellular process known as autophagy (whereby cells can degrade long-lived proteins and compartments to remodel their interiors and/or survive stressful situations) in neurodegeneration, but whether it protects against or promotes neurodegeneration remains controversial. New data, generated by T
