Strategies to apply γδ T cells for Immunotherapy

Activation of γδ T cells γδ T cells exhibit preferential pairing of variable region genes (Vγ and Vδ genes) in the TCR. For example, in the peripheral blood of adults, most γδ T cells usually express Vδ2 paired with Vγ9 [2]. γδ T cells expressing Vδ1, Vδ3, or Vδ5 together with one of the remaining Read More

gamma/delta T Cells

γδ T cells Approximately 3-5% of CD3+ T cells in peripheral blood express a γδ T cell receptor (TCR) heterodimer rather than the conventional αβ TCR. Small population in circulation (circa 5%) but increased numbers in tissues Predominant population in epithelia (skin DETC, dendritic epidermal T cells), but species differences between mice and humans Most Read More

7. gamma/delta T Cells

Unconventional T cells Introduction T lymphocytes are characterized by the expression of the CD3 molecule and the associated T cell receptor for antigen (TCR). This is the hallmark of all T cells in contrast to other CD3-negative lymphoid cells which may share some effector functions with T cells, such as NK cells or innate lymphocytes Read More

Unconventional T cells Introduction T lymphocytes are characterized by the expression of the CD3 molecule and the associated T cell receptor for antigen (TCR). This is the hallmark of all T cells in contrast to other CD3-negative lymphoid cells which may share some effector functions with T cells, such as natural killer (NK) cells or Read More
