    Mol Cancer 13:15. 2014
    ..In recent years, epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) has been linked to cancer invasion and metastasis. In the present study we investigated the role of CD133 in pancreatic cancer metastasis and its potential regulatory network...

    Hum Immunol 72:1001-6. 2011
    ..Downregulation of PD-1 on HTLV-1-specific CTLs and loss of PD-L1 expression in HAM/TSP and CAIDs, along with impaired function of HTLV-1-specific CTLs in HAM/TSP, may underlie the apparently dysfunctional immune response against HTLV-1...

    Leuk Lymphoma 54:2243-50. 2013
    ..We conclude that CD127 down-regulation may be associated with disease status in HTLV-1 infection, and propose that exogenous IL-7 may be useful immunotherapy or cytokine adjuvant for an anti-ATL therapeutic vaccine...

    ..In the light of these findings, we thus propose an inhibitory role for 2B4/CD48 interaction on CD8+T cell function. ..
