Targets of CAR-T Cell Therapy

The chimeric antigen receptor T (CAR-T) cell therapy is a new treatment for a variety of cancers. The idea is to take out the T-cells from the patient, and genetically engineer the cells to make them express a chimeric receptor (CAR) recognizing a specific tumor-associated antigen (TAAs). As a result, the CAR-expressing T cells, when reintroduced into the patient's body, will target and eliminate the TAA-expressing tumor cells.

CAR-T targets

Despite the early excitement, the actual path to a clinical success is not an easy one. Both Juno's and Kite Pharma's clinical trials ended up with unexpected and unexplained deaths caused by cerebral edema, which cast a dark shadow over the entire field.

The long-awaited breakthrough finally came this year. Kymriah, Novartis's CAR-T therapy, was approved by FDA this August for the treatment of patients up to 25 years of age with B-cell precursor ALL that is refractory or in second or later relapse. This success marks a milestone in the development of targeted cell therapies, and fueled the efforts to develop / advance CAR-T treatment targeting other cancer-specific antigens. Beyond CD19, there is a growing list of targets being investigated for therapeutic intervention.

ACROBiosystems has developed an extensive collection of recombinant proteins to support these investigations. This growing list of proteins includes many pre-biotinylated proteins that are uniquely suitable for screening CAR-expressing cells. In addition, we also supply hard-to-make proteins such as BCMA, ROR1, and EGFRVIII.

Case study: evaluation of CD19 CAR expression

  1. The following case was described in a recent paper by MacLeod DT, et al. published on Jounal of Molecular therapy. The detailed infomation can be found at MacLeod DT, et al., 2017, Mol Ther. 25(4):949-961.doi: 10.1016/j.ymthe.2017.02.005.

  2. Method: Flow Cytometry

  3. Equipment: BD Fortessa flow cytometer (BD Biosciences)

  4. Reagents: Biotinylated CD19-Fc (Cat. No. CD9-H8259, ACROBiosystems); streptavidin-PE and anti-CD3-BV711 (BioLegend);

  5. Samples: TRC1-2-treated, AAV:TRAC:CAR-transduced T cells

  6. Brief protocol: For evaluation of CAR expression, cells were stained with biotinylated CD19-Fc (Cat. No. CD9-H8259, ACROBiosystems) for 15 min at room temperature. Cells were thoroughly washed before staining with antibodies for additional surface markers. Streptavidin-PE and anti-CD3-BV711 were used to stain surface antigens. Cell Trace Violet (Thermo Fisher Scientific) was used at a concentration of 1 mM to label cells for 10 min. All FACS data was analyzed using FlowJo software.

  7. Results: Analysis of CD3 and CAR expression by flow cytometry showed a high frequency of CD19 CAR+ cells in the CD3- population. (More details can be found at MacLeod DT, et al., 2017, Mol Ther. 25(4):949-961.doi: 10.1016/j.ymthe.2017.02.005.)

    Figure A. Activated T cells were electroporated with TRC1-2 mRNA and transduced with AAV:TRAC:CAR at an MOI of 400,000 vg/cell and cultured for 5 days in the presence of IL-2. Five days post-transduction, cells were stained for expression of the CAR using abiotinylated CD19-Fc reagent and CD3, with TRC1-2-treated, mock-transduced cells used as a control for gating of CAR expression. CD3+ cells were then depleted. Enriched CD3 cells were cultured for 3 additional days in the presence of IL-15 and IL-21 and then analyzed again by flow cytometry for CD3 and CAR expression.
