<li>peptide ligand targeting – peptides on outside of tumor capillary growth hormones</li> </ol> <p> <b>Direction for continued research: </b> surface bound receptor (as opposed to secreted) </p> <p> Goal may be B-cell targeting, even if we can’t target malignant B-cell &gt; proof of principal </p> <p> CD 20 receptor </p> <p> <b>Design Direction: Focus on leukemia</b> </p> <p> · Easier to test by delivering into blood stream, easily reaches cancer </p> <ul> <li> Leukemia cells available </li> </ul> <p> · Drugs (daunorubicin, idarubicin) already tested in leukemia </p> <p> <b>Plans &amp; Targets</b> </p> <ol> <li>More focused literature search on drugs and targeting</li>

<li>Look for ligands</li> <ol type="a"> <li>What is overexpressed on leukemia cell surface?</li> <li>What is commercially available?</li> </ol> <li>Begin designing and drawing cross-sections for shape ideas</li> <ol type="a"> <li>Look at degradation – If shape lasts longer, does it get closer to nucleus, etc</li> <li>Focus on targeting, effects of size/shape on uptake</li> <li>Potential mechanisms to explain difference in results between tube and triangle</li> <li>How did they measure loading efficiency?</li> <li>What shapes do we already have?</li> <li>Preliminary tests to check hypothesis for loading efficiency if no data is available</li> <li>Does intercalation affect folding?</li> <li>Hypothesis – dense would have lower loading efficiency because layers are inaccessible to solution</li> <li>Incubation period?</li> </ol> </ol> <h2>5/21/2013</h2> <p> <u>Drugs Update</u> </p> <p> Intercalating agents: </p> <p> Daunorubicin (doxorubicin is a derivative of this) </p> <p> Mitoxantrone </p> <p> Used in combination with vincristine, inhibits mytosis </p> <p> Anthrapyrazols </p> <p> Rituximab commonly used for CLL but not an intercalating agent </p> <p> <b>Direction: </b> research drug mechanisms </p> <p> <u>Targeting Update</u> </p> <p> ROR-1 is overexpressed in CLL </p> <p> Monoclonal antibodies used to target </p> <p> How do we attach antibodies to structure? </p> <p> <b>Direction</b> : research how to target ROR-1 </p> <p> <u>Shapes Update</u> </p> <p> Plan: use structures already available in the lab for prelimary tests </p> <p> Tube (6 helix bundle) as control, adjust diameter (6, 12, 18 helix bundles), extended cylinder, density, layers (bennett linkage) </p> <p> From test results, develop 3 structures to test </p> <p> Measure intercalation loading efficiency by intensity </p> <p> <b>Direction: </b> investigate DNA structures in the lab that would be useful, research how loading efficiency was measured in doxorubicin study </p> <h2>5/23/2013</h2> <p> <u>Drugs Update</u> </p> <p> Drug possibilities: </p> <p> Daunorubicin </p> <p> Epirubicin </p> <p> Mitoxantrone </p> <p> All intercalating agents, none approved for treatment of CLL, mostly in combination with other drugs, few studies about efficacies on their own </p> <p> Possibility of using a combination of drugs? </p> <p> <u>Targeting Update</u> </p> <p> New research at OSU regarding dual-ligand immunoliposome using CD20 and CD37 </p> <p> In combination even more selective than ROR-1 </p> <p> Anti CD20 is commonly known as rituximab and is widely used for CLL treatment </p> <p> ROR-1 in 2012 study was found on healthy frozen reactive lymph nodes, but overall effective for targeting </p> <p> Will need biotinylated antibodies if we can get them </p> <p> Candidates: CD37 and ROR-1 </p> <p> Will attempt to contact Robert Lee’s lab for dissertation on dual ligand liposome </p> <p> <u>Shapes Update</u> </p> <p> Selected 5 or 6 structures with varying densities, surface areas </p> <p> Examples: 18 helix bundle of 2 different lengths, Bennett linkage (64 helices thick, can be held in open or closed configuration), soak Bennett linkage in open position, and then close it as a possibility </p> <h2>5/28/2013</h2> <p> <u>Drugs Update</u> </p> <p> <b>Direction: </b> Which of the three drugs is most readily used in CLL? Is it commercially available and what is the cost? Will have selection for next meeting on Thursday May 30 </p> <p> <u>Targeting Update</u> </p> <p> Group has selected ROR-1 for targeting </p> <p> It is commercially available but not biotinylated </p> <p> This is pending information from the OSU dual-ligand liposome study </p> <p> Per Chris, our lab is already working with them and collaboration is possible </p> <p> <b>Direction: </b> Read dissertation on CD20 &amp; CD37 once available </p> <p> <u>Shapes Update</u> </p> <p> Presented important follow-up questions regarding time in blood stream and renal filtering </p> <p> Selected structures per presentation </p> <p> <b>Direction:</b> will wait for drug selection to begin loading efficiency testing </p> <p> Need to verify that measurement process from doxorubicin study will work for selected drug </p> <h2>5/30/2013</h2> <p> <u>Targeting Update</u> </p> <p> ROR1 would require characterizations of the cells </p> <p> o <i>Can do with antibodies</i> </p> <p> o <i>Cannot find biotinylated ROR1 so the other option would consist of attaching streptavidin on the origami if we cannot find biotinylated ROR1.</i> </p> <p> <u>Shapes Update</u> </p> <p> Shapes depend on loading efficiency – keeping in mind the concentration of drug.<b></b> </p> <p> o The concentration of drug that will be intercalated within the origami.<b></b> </p> <p> o The goal is the control the concentration of the drug to be less cytotoxic.<b></b> </p> <p> <b></b> </p> <p> <u>Drugs Update</u> </p> <p> Daunorubicin has been selected as the drug of choice between Mitoxantrone and Epirubicin. Daunorubisin has the most trials (around 146 in CLL) and epirubisin had around 11. Mioxantrone was ruled out because it attacks T-cells while CLL is in B-cells </p> <p> <b></b> </p> <p> <u>Other:</u> </p> <p> We will be using MEC1 and OSUCLL cells </p> <p> <b></b> </p> <p> <b>Questions that we want answered:</b> </p> <p> - Does the shape depend on uptake? </p> <p> - How long does Daunorubicin take to kill cells? </p> <p> <b></b> </p> <p> <b>Plans for upcoming weeks:</b> </p> <p> - Tuesday: Doug and Emily will be presenting article about Doxorubicin with DNA origami. </p> <p> - Other days: Start thinking about WetLab, Design team, Analysis, and Modeling groups. </p> <h2 id="june">6/4/2013</h2> <p> <u>Drugs Update</u> </p> <p> Daunorubicin has been ordered, should arrive any day </p> <p> <b>Direction: </b> Start experimentation of cell viability with/without drugs<b></b> </p> <p> <u></u> </p> <p> <b>Design:</b> </p> <p> Can start viability assays without drugs immediately now as controls </p> <p> Options: </p> <ol> <li>M(13) and cells</li> <li>M(13) and dauno and cells (single stranded and <u>double stranded</u>)</li> <li>Daunorubicin and cells</li> <li>6-helix and cells</li> <li>Bennett linkage and cells</li> <li>6-helix and dauno and cells</li> <li>bennett and dauno and cells</li> </ol> culture cells in presence of these conditions for 24 hours and then take read-outs for every 4 hours (6, 8, etc) </p> <p> What can we expect to see as results for these tests? Cell viability should decrease with increasing drug concentration but should not be affected by dna strand </p>
