"We recently reported that the targeted expression of growth arrest specific 1 (Gas1) induces apoptosis in glioma cells. Because the vast majority of gliomas present genetic alterations that reduce their ability to undergo apoptosis, a gene therapy strategy aimed at reinstating apoptotic processes in glioma cells is an interesting approach for the treatment of these tumors.
"We used a retroviral gene transfer system to transduce C6 glioma cells with a transgene in which the expression of a full-length human gas1 cDNA is under the transcriptional control of a human promoter of...
