ACROBio’s talk: Wednesday, January 19th at 10:05 am - 10:35 am PDT
Track: Targeting Immune Cells for Emerging Immunotherapies
Title: “Engineering Transmembrane Proteins for Cancer Immunotherapy”
Speaker: Nicholas J. Abuid, Ph.D, Field Application Scientist, ACROBiosystems
Abstract: Transmembrane proteins (TPs) are embedded in the cell membrane and span the intracellular and extracellular environments. The transmembrane region directly interacts with the phospholipid bilayer and is an important channel bridging these environments enabling transport of various ions and molecules and relaying activation and response reactions to extracellular stimuli. These reactions propagate intracellularly through downstream signaling pathways and regulate cell metabolism, cellular activity, and cellular fate. TPs have broad applications in cancer immunotherapy and autoimmune diseases. Our team has engineered methods to formulate TPs to support research in understanding the role of various diseases.
