26872462 blocking of both OX-40L and 4-1BBL reversed radiation-enhanced T-cell killing of human tumor targets as well as T-cell survival and activation.
26125931 In vitro immunotherapy is described for anti-prostate cancer effects of cytotoxic T lymphocytes induction by recombinant adenovirus mediated PSMA/4-1BBL dendritic cells.
26116899 HIV-1 Vpr upregulates the gene expression of TNFSF9 in human monocyte-derived dendritic cells
25872647 vaccination with recombinant attenuated Salmonella harboring the CEACAM6 and 4-1BBL gene efficiently increased the number of CD3+CD8+ TIL and NK cells, decreased the number of FOXP3 cells and inhibited the development of DMH-induced colorectal cancer
25631633 CD137L is overexpressed in non-small cell lung cancer specimens and positive expression of CD137L was associated with better overall survival.
24899613 Elevated plasma levels and monocyte-associated expression of CD137 ligand in patients with acute atherothrombotic stroke
24639347 monocytes interact with iNKT cells to increase expression of 4-1BBL and 4-1BB, and in conjunction with this pathway, maintain their numbers at baseline.
24198185 Hence, the targeted combination of IL-15 and 4-BBL in the form of a trifunctional antibody-fusion protein is a promising new approach for cancer immunotherapy.
24084649 TIRAP and IRAK2 are critical for the sustained inflammatory response that is mediated by late-phase signaling by the TLR-4-1BBL complex.
23620528 Data show that TNFR1 associates with CD137L and is required for CD137L reverse signaling.
