First image of antigen-bound T-cell receptor at atomic resolution
Basis for novel therapeutic approaches targeting severe diseases
22-Aug-2022 - T cells are our immune system’s customised tools for fighting infectious diseases and tumour cells. On their surface, these special white blood cells carry a receptor that recognises antigens. With the help of cryo-electron microscopy, biochemists and structural biologists from Goethe University ...
Scientists develop artificial intelligence method to predict anti-cancer immunity
Machine learning algorithms are shedding light on neoantigen T cell-receptor pairs
28-Sep-2021 - Researchers and data scientists at UT Southwestern Medical Center and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have developed an artificial intelligence technique that can identify which cell surface peptides produced by cancer cells called neoantigens are recognized by the immune ...
Super-resolution microscopy reveals unprecedented detail of immune cells' surface
16-Jun-2016 - When the body is fighting an invading pathogen, white blood cells--including T cells--must respond. Now, Salk Institute researchers have imaged how vital receptors on the surface of T cells bundle together when activated. This study, the first to visualize this process in lymph nodes, could help ...
T cells use 'handshakes' to sort friends from foes
09-May-2016 - T cells, the security guards of the immune system, use a kind of mechanical "handshake" to test whether a cell they encounter is a friend or foe, a new study finds. The was study, led by Khalid Salaita, a physical chemist at Emory University who specializes in the mechanical forces of cellular ...
