Modulation of the activity of an interleukin 17 receptor-related protein, EVI27, and uses thereof

The present invention describes the cloning and molecular and cellular characterization of a novel protein with homology to the IL-17 receptor. The gene was cloned by virtue of its proximity to a common site of retroviral integration in a murine acute myeloid leukemia. The gene described herein possibly codes for a novel interleukin receptor that binds an as yet unidentified cytokine ligand, and may be useful in cancer diagnostics and therapies that rely on immune system modulation.

Inhibition of cancer metastasis

P-Selectin on platelets and endothelium binds cell surface chondroitin sulfate (CS) proteoglycans, which are abundantly and stably expressed on the surface many cancer cells. Binding of the cancer cells through the CS moieties may be blocked to inhibit the interaction of cancer cells with platelets and endothelium. The present inventors disclose compositions and methods for the inhibition of cancer metastasis.

Gene expression profiling based identification of CKS1B as a potential therapeutic target in multiple myeloma

The present invention used gene expression profiling in large uniformly treated population of patients with myeloma to identify genes associated with poor prognosis. It also demonstrated that over-expression of CKS1B gene, mainly due to gene amplification that was determined by Fluorescent in-situ hybridization to impart a poor prognosis in multiple myleoma.

Nek2 proteolysis targeting chimeras for use in malignant disease

This invention describes a small molecule proteolysis targeting chimera (PROTAC) strategy to degrade the NEK2 (Never in Mitosis Related Kinase 2) protein and methods of use thereof. The NEK2 PROTAC consists of three, key regions: a NEK2 ligand to bind the NEK2 protein, a linker region to link the NEK2 ligand to a ligase ligand, and the ligase ligand.
