"It has been demonstrated that survivin, a novel member of the inhibitor of apoptosis (IAP) protein family, is expressed in human cancers but is undetectable in normal differentiated tissues. We employed a recombinant adenoviral vector (reAdGL3BSurvivin) in which a tumor-specific survivin promoter and a luciferase reporter gene were inserted into the E1-deleted region of adenovirus vector. Luciferase activity was measured in both multiple tumor cell lines and two primary melanoma cells infected with reAdGL3BSurvivin," researchers in the United States report.
"Human fibroblast and...
