It is this T cell receptor that will be transferred into the hematopoietic stem cell, and that allows the stem cell to produce cytotoxic T cells that can bind and kill tumor cells.
The companies will collaborate to identify and validate tumor targets and their corresponding T cell receptors (TCRs) in one or more types of cancer.
The CAR technology directs T cells to recognize cancer cells based on the expression of specific proteins located on the cell surface, whereas the TCR technology provides the T cells with a specific T cell receptor to recognize protein fragments derived from either the surface or inside the cell.
The researchers also discovered that HIV-specific T cell receptors have to be matched to an individual in much the same way an organ is matched to a transplant patient.
The researchers found a time delay of about a second between when the T cell receptor engages the antigen peptide and when the CD8 co-receptor goes into action.
Tony Taylor, Emergent Technologies Senior Vice President, Strategic Planning, stated, "Receptor Logic has developed a powerful tool called 'T Cell Receptor Mimics (TCRm(tm))' aimed at measuring immune presentation.
An increase in applications for artificial t cell receptors is a key factor adding growth in the global artificial T-cell receptors market.
The immune system depends on molecules called T cell receptors on the surface of T cells to recognize and respond to foreign antigens from virus-infected cells, tumors and other threats.
Catapult Therapy TCR Ltd is a special purpose company set up by CGT Catapult, UCL Business and Imperial Innovations, and managed by CGT Catapult, for the development of the WT1 T cell receptor cell therapy discovered through research at University College London and Imperial College London.
In previous research, the scientists took CD8 cytotoxic T lymphocytes--the "killer" T cells that help fight infection--from an HIV-infected individual and identified the molecule known as the T cell receptor, which guides the T cell in recognizing and killing HIV-infected cells.

City of Hope (Duarte, CA) has patented a genetically engineered, CD19-specific chimeric T cell receptor and to immune cells expressing the chimeric receptor The present invention also relates to the use of such cells for cellular immunotherapy of CD9.
