Production of tumor-specific suppressor T cell hybridomas

The Journal of Surgical Research
H D Bear


Spleen cells from late tumor-bearing host mice (TBH) with progressive P815 tumors have been shown to suppress the generation of cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) from spleens of syngeneic immune or early TBH mice in vitro. This suppression is antigen-specific and is mediated by T lymphocytes. By positive selection, a highly enriched population of T cells was obtained from late TBH spleens and fused with the BW5147 HAT-sensitive thymoma. Cloned hybrid cell lines were obtained which released soluble antigen-specific factors capable of suppressing anti-P815 CTL generation. Similar T cell hybrids with suppressive activity were also derived from the fusion of spleen cells of TBHs bearing a HAT-sensitive subline of the P815 tumor.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
