A method of evaluating if a glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) patient is applicable to be treated with an immunotherapy based on dendritic cell tumor vaccines includes a sample obtaining step to obtain a sample from the GBM patient, a detecting step to detect an expression level of a biomarker, and a comparing step to compare the expression level of the biomarker to a threshold, wherein the GBM patient is applicable to treat with the immunotherapy based on dendritic cell tumor vaccines when the expression level of the biomarker is lower than the threshold. A method of prognosticating a survival rate in the GBM patient after a treatment includes a sample obtaining step, a detecting step, and a comparing step, wherein the GBM patient is determined to have a good prognosis after the treatment when the expression level of the sample from the GBM is lower than the threshold.

An isolated or a purified nucleic acid sequence for enhancing expression levels of a protein of interest, in 5 to 3 direction, comprises: a cytomegalovirus (CMV) promoter; an eEF-1 intron repeat (eEF-1 IR); and a regular sequence, which comprises: at least one tag element, a fixable linker sequence, wherein the fixable sequence is TEV sequence; and a multiple cloning site (MCS). By means of the array of the specific promoter and eEF-1 IR, the expression and purity of the recombinant protein could be enhanced; wherein eEF-1 IR can reduce the length of vector and assist RNA polymerase II transcription. Besides, TEV sequence of the fixable linker sequence of the regular sequence can remove a tag on recombinant protein; a specific target can be inserted into the multiple cloning site.
