Identification of Human Autologous Cytotoxic T-Lymphocyte-Defined Osteosarcoma Gene That Encodes a Transcriptional Regulator, Papillomavirus Binding Factor

In the current study, we screened the cDNA library of this osteosarcoma cell line using an autologous CTL clone and identified cDNA encoding an antigen. The isolated cDNA was identical to papillomavirus binding factor (PBF) , which was recently reported as a DNA binding transcription factor cooperating with RUNX1. Reverse transcription-PCR analysis revealed that PBF was expressed in 16 of 19 cases of bone and soft-tissue sarcoma cell lines (5 of 6 of osteosarcoma lines) and 57 of 76 sarcoma tissue samples (11 of 14 of osteosarcoma tissues). Also, PBF was expressed in 10 of 13 epithelial cancer cell lines and 20 of 34 of cancer tissues.
