Figure 5

Meso-TR3 preferentially kills MUC16-expressing tumor cells. A, HeLa cells were grown on 4-chamber slides and incubated the following day with Meso-TR3 complexed with DR5-Fc. After washing, the cells were stained with a mixture of MUC16 pAb (red) and FLAG mAb (green), respectively. The cells were counterstained with TOPRO3 (blue, nuclei) and analyzed by confocal microscopy. The individual channels were overlaid to document co-localization of tumor marker and the targeted cancer drug (Merge). Original magnification: 63×. B, HeLa cells were treated with TR3 and Meso-TR3 for 24 h. Two days post-treatment, the cells were assessed for changes in the MUC16 ratio using flow cytometry. Representative density plots are shown from experiments done at least twice in duplicates.
