A Roadmap for the Success of Oncolytic Parvovirus-Based Anticancer Therapies.

Anna Hartley, Gayatri Kavishwar, Ilaria Salvato, Antonio Marchini,

Autonomous rodent protoparvoviruses (PVs) are promising anticancer agents due to their excellent safety profile, natural oncotropism, and oncosuppressive activities. Viral infection can trigger immunogenic cell death, activating the immune system against the tumor. However, the efficacy of this treatment in recent clinical trials is moderate compared with results seen in ... Read more >>

A Track Record on SHOX: From Basic Research to Complex Models and Therapy.

Antonio Marchini, Tsutomu Ogata, Gudrun A Rappold,

SHOX deficiency is the most frequent genetic growth disorder associated with isolated and syndromic forms of short stature. Caused by mutations in the homeobox gene SHOX, its varied clinical manifestations include isolated short stature, Léri-Weill dyschondrosteosis, and Langer mesomelic dysplasia. In addition, SHOX deficiency contributes to the skeletal features in ... Read more >>

Through its nonstructural protein NS1, parvovirus H-1 induces apoptosis via accumulation of reactive oxygen species.

Georgi Hristov, Melanie Krämer, Junwei Li, Nazim El-Andaloussi, Rodrigo Mora, Laurent Daeffler, Hanswalter Zentgraf, Jean Rommelaere, Antonio Marchini,

The rat parvovirus H-1 (H-1PV) attracts high attention as an anticancer agent, because it is not pathogenic for humans and has oncotropic and oncosuppressive properties. The viral nonstructural NS1 protein is thought to mediate H-1PV cytotoxicity, but its exact contribution to this process remains undefined. In this study, we analyzed ... Read more >>

Antonio Marchini, Beate Häcker, Tiina Marttila, Volker Hesse, Joyce Emons, Birgit Weiss, Marcel Karperien, Gudrun Rappold,

Short stature due to SHOX deficiency represents a common congenital form of growth failure and is involved in the aetiology of 'idiopathic' short stature and the growth deficits and skeletal anomalies in Leri-Weill, Langer and Turner syndromes. Although much is known on the clinical and molecular aspects of SHOX haploinsufficiency, ... Read more >>

Schizosaccharomyces pombe Pmf1p is structurally and functionally related to Mmf1p of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Antonio Marchini, Rosita Accardi, Ilaria Malanchi, Evi Schyr, Ellinor Oxelmark, Vito De Pinto, Jean-Claude Jauniaux, Kinsey Maundrell, Massimo Tommasino,

A novel family of small proteins, termed p14.5 or YERO57c/YJGFc, has been identified. Independent studies indicate that p14.5 family members are multifunctional proteins involved in several pathways, e.g. regulation of translation or activation of the protease mu-calpain.
