A method for treating cancer includes administering to a subject in need thereof an antibody against a transmembrane and coiled-coil domains protein 3 (TMCC3), wherein the antibody binds to an epitope in an extracellular domain of TMCC3. The antibody binds to an epitope in an intercoil domain of TMCC3. A method of diagnosing or assessing a cancer condition includes assessing a level of expression or activity of a transmembrane and coiled-coil domains protein 3 (TMCC3) in a sample, wherein an increase in the level of expression of activity of TMCC3 as compared to a standard indicates the presence of cancer stem cells in the sample.

A method for treating an inflammatory disease or an immune disorder includes administering to a subject in need of such treatment an antagonist against ENO1. The antagonist binds ENO1 and inhibits ENO1 plasminogen receptor activity. The antagonist may be an anti-human ENO1 antibody, or an scFv, Fab, or F(ab)_(2 )fragment thereof, that specifically binds to human ENO1 (GenBank: AAH50642.1) for the treatment of an inflammatory disease or an immune disorder, which may be multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohns disease, ulcerative colitis, systemic Lupus erythematosus, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, allergy, psoriasis, type 1 diabetes mellitus, artherosclerosis or osteoporosis.
