Shiga‐like toxin I exerts specific and potent anti‐tumour efficacy against gastric cancer cell proliferation when driven by tumour‐preferential Frizzled‐7 promoter
AbstractObjectivesTumour‐targeted gene therapy is a promising approach for effective control of gastric cancer cell proliferation. Our study aims to develop a cancer therapy which combines tumour‐targeting promoters with cytotoxins.MethodsThe expression of globotriaosylceramide (Gb3), which is a Shiga‐like toxin I (Stx1) receptor, was verified in gastric cancer compared with normal stomach tissues as assessed by flow cytometry and immunohistochemical analysis. We therefore constructed...
