Adoptive transfer of T cells is a promising cancer therapy and expression of chimeric antigen receptors can enhance tumour recognition and T-cell effector functions. The programmed death protein 1 (PD1) receptor is a prospective target for a chimeric antigen receptor because PD1 ligands are expressed on many cancer types, including lymphoma. Therefore, we developed a murine chimeric PD1 receptor (chPD1) consisting of the PD1 extracellular domain fused to the cytoplasmic domain of CD3ζ. Additionally, chimeric antigen receptor therapies use various co-stimulatory domains to enhance efficacy...

BACKGROUND: T cells engineered to express chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) have established efficacy in the treatment of B-cell malignancies, but their relevance in solid tumors remains undefined. Here we report results of the first human trials of CAR-T cells in the treatment of solid tumors performed in the 1990s. METHODS: Patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC) were treated in two phase 1 trials with first-generation retroviral transduced CAR-T cells targeting tumor-associated glycoprotein (TAG)-72 and including a CD3-zeta intracellular signaling domain (CART72 cells)...

Purpose: CD70 expression in normal tissues is restricted to activated lymphoid tissues. Targeting CD70 on CD70-expressing tumors could mediate "on-target, off-tumor" toxicity. This study was to evaluate the feasibility and safety of using anti-human CD70 CARs to treat cancer patients whose tumors express CD70. Experimental Design: Seven anti-human CD70 CARs with binding moieties from human CD27 combined with CD3-zeta and different costimulatory domains from CD28 and/or 41BB were constructed. In vitro functionality of these receptors was compared and in vivo treatment efficacy was evaluated in a xenograft mouse model...

The zeta-chain-associated protein kinase 70 kDa (ZAP-70), a member of the spleen tyrosine kinase (Syk) family, plays an essential role in early T cell receptor (TCR) signaling. Defects in ZAP-70 lead to impaired thymocyte development and peripheral T cell activation. To better understand its activation dynamics and regulation, we visualized ZAP-70 activities in single live T cells with a Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET)-based biosensor, which was designed for probing kinase activities of the Syk family...

BACKGROUND AIMS: The PR1 peptide, derived from the leukemia-associated antigens proteinase 3 and neutrophil elastase, is overexpressed on HLA-A2 in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). We developed a T-cell receptor (TCR)-like monoclonal antibody (8F4) that binds the PR1/HLA-A2 complex on the surface of AML cells, efficiently killing them in vitro and eliminating them in preclinical models. Humanized 8F4 (h8F4) with high affinity for the PR1/HLA-A2 epitope was used to construct an h8F4- chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) that was transduced into T cells to mediate anti-leukemia activity...

NK cells are bone marrow-derived cytotoxic lymphocytes that play a major role in the rejection of tumors and cells infected by viruses. The regulation of NK activation vs inhibition is regulated by the expression of a variety of NK receptors (NKRs) and specific NKRs' ligands expressed on their targets. However, factors limiting NK therapy include small numbers of active NK cells in unexpanded peripheral blood and lack of specific tumor targeting. Chimeric antigen receptors (CAR) usually include a single-chain Fv variable fragment from a monoclonal antibody, a transmembrane hinge region, and a signaling domain such as CD28, CD3-zeta, 4-1BB (CD137), or 2B4 (CD244) endodimers...

In autoimmune type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D), auto-reactive clones of CD4+ and CD8+ T lymphocytes in the periphery evolve into pancreas-infiltrating T lymphocytes (PILs), which destroy insulin-producing beta-cells through inflammatory insulitis. Previously, we demonstrated that, during the development of T1D in non-obese diabetic (NOD) mice, a set of immune/inflammatory reactivity genes were differentially expressed in T lymphocytes. However, the posttranscriptional control involving miRNA interactions that occur during the evolution of thymocytes into PILs remains unknown...

Interleukin 4-induced gene-1 (IL4I1) was initially described as an early IL-4-inducible gene in B cells. IL4I1 protein can inhibit T cell proliferation by releasing its enzymatic catabolite, H2O2, and this effect is associated with transient down-regulation of T cell CD3 receptor-zeta (TCRζ) expression. Herein, we show that IL4I1 contributes to the regulation of macrophage programming. We found that expression of IL4I1 increased during bone marrow-derived macrophage (BMDM) differentiation, expression of IL4I1 is much higher in primary macrophages than monocytes, and IL4I1 expression in BMDMs could be induced by Th1 and Th2 cytokines in two different patterns...

Identification of methyl acetate in the interstellar medium (ISM) and its spectroscopic studies have prompted us to investigate the structure of crystalline methyl acetate using numerical calculations. Here, we present a theoretical study of the structure of crystalline methyl acetate and its isotopologues and compare the calculated infrared (IR) spectra with the available experimental data. The optimized structure and vibrational properties were calculated using SIESTA software at 0 K. In the optimization process, the Perdew-Burke-Ernzerhof functional and conjugate gradient methods were used with double zeta polarization basis functions...

T lymphocytes from many patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) express decreased levels of the T cell receptor (TCR)-associated CD3 zeta (ζ) signaling chain, a feature directly linked to their abnormal phenotype and function. Reduced mRNA expression partly due to defective alternative splicing, contributes to the reduced expression of CD3ζ chain. We previously identified by oligonucleotide pulldown and mass spectrometry approaches, the serine arginine-rich splicing factor 1 (SRSF1) binding to the 3' untranslated region (UTR) of CD3ζ mRNA...

Adoptive T cell therapy represents a promising treatment for cancer. Human T cells engineered to express a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) recognize and kill tumor cells in a MHC-unrestricted manner and persist in vivo when the CAR includes a CD28 costimulatory domain. However, the intensity of the CAR-mediated CD28 activation signal and its regulation by the CTLA-4 checkpoint are unknown. We investigated whether T cells expressing an anti-CD19, CD3 zeta and CD28-based CAR (19-28z) displayed the same proliferation and anti-tumor abilities than T cells expressing a CD3 zeta-based CAR (19z1) costimulated through the CD80/CD28, ligand/receptor pathway...

Activation of the inducible costimulator (ICOS) signaling pathway in T cells is difficult to assess with bioassays, because most T cell lines do not constitutively express ICOS. Additionally, engagement of ICOS by its natural ligand B7 related protein 1 (B7RP1) is insufficient to elicit ICOS signaling, but requires simultaneous costimulation of the T cell receptor (TCR) to be effective. Here we describe a genetically engineered human T cell line that expresses a chimeric receptor (ICOS-CD3) consisting of full-length human ICOS fused at its C-terminal end to the cytoplasmic domain of human CD3 zeta...

BACKGROUND: Critical impairment of adaptive immune response has been observed in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) with reduced expansion of regulatory T cells (Treg) and enhanced effector T-cell responsiveness, both associated with poorer outcomes. OBJECTIVES: This study investigated the mechanisms underlying T-cell dysregulation in ACS. METHODS: We evaluated both early and downstream T-cell receptor activation pathways after ex vivo stimulation with anti-CD3 and anti-CD28 crosslink in CD4(+) T cells from 20 patients with non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI), 20 with stable angina (SA), and 20 controls...

Otitis media is a common disease in childhood. In adults, the disease is relatively rare, but more frequently associated with complications. Possible reasons for this discrepancy are age-related differences in pathogen exposure, anatomy of the Eustachian tube and immune system. The objective of this study was to analyze the relationship between age and the mucosal immune system in the middle ear. It is hypothesized that genes involved in the middle ear immune system will change with age. A comprehensive assessment of these genetic differences using the techniques of complementary DNA has not been performed...

INTRODUCTION: Impaired T cell function in sepsis is associated with poor outcome, but the mechanisms are unclear. In cancer, arginase-expressing myeloid derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) deplete arginine, impair T cell receptor CD3 zeta-chain expression and T cell function and are linked to poor clinical outcome, but their role during acute human infectious disease and in particular sepsis remains unknown. Hypoarginemia is prevalent in sepsis. This study aimed to determine whether neutrophils that co-purify with PBMC express arginase, and if arginine depletion constrains T cell CD3 zeta-chain expression and function in human sepsis...

Type II phosphatidylinositol (PtdIns) 4-kinases are involved in the synthesis of PtdIns 4-phosphates and modulate various cell functions like, intracellular signaling, cytoskeletal rearrangements, vesicular trafficking, and pathogen invasion. In CD3 receptor activated T cells, a type II PtdIns 4-kinase β is recruited to CD3 receptor zeta and plays a role in intracellular calcium release and probably in actin cytoskeleton reorganization. T cell receptor mediated activation is supported by CD4 receptor. The role of type II PtdIns 4-kinase β in CD4 receptor-mediated signaling was addressed in the present manuscript...
