Tokyo, Japan) has patented a tumor antigen gene identified by screening a cDNA library derived from a gastric cancer cell line that can induce gastric cancer antigen specific cytotoxic T cell by means of hybridization and PCR utilizing an amino acid sequence of peptide fragment of a known gastric cancer antigen protein, introducing a selected cDNA clone into a cell of gastric cancer cell line that cannot induce gastric cancer antigen specific cytotoxic T cell so that the clone should be expressed in the cell, and selecting a transgenic cell that has acquired the ability to induce cytotoxic T cell.
They argued that before cytotoxic T cells kill an infected cell, they recognize both a piece of virus and an MHC protein characteristic of the animal.
IL-21 has potent biological activity in regulating key classes of immune cells, including cytotoxic T cells and natural killer cells.
IL-21, a protein discovered through ZymoGenetics' genomic research efforts, stimulates the proliferation and activation of natural killer cells and cytotoxic T cells, cell types involved in the destruction of cancerous and infected cells.
In this preclinical study, human NK cells and cytotoxic T cells were treated in vitro with interferon-alpha, with or without Ceplene.
Direct, in vivo vaccination with a telomerase DNA therapeutic vaccine produces a telomerase-specific cytotoxic T cell immune response.
The data, published in the December issue of Nature Biotechnology, highlights a method for modifying targets on cancer cells called antigens to facilitate activation of cytotoxic T cells -- a key component of the immune system responsible for destroying cancerous cells.
