Now Available: MAGE-A10 Antigen-Specific T Cells

MAGE-A10 is highly expressed in triple-negative breast cancers (Estrogen Receptor / Progesterone Receptor / HER-2-negative), an important focus for many cancer researchers. We have developed a new T cell line specific for the MAGE-A10254-263 peptide (GLYDGMEHL) and restricted by HLA-A*0201. These MAGE-A10 T cells could be the perfect complement to your cancer immunotherapy research. View…

Ask A Scientist: What Antigens Can Stimulate IFNγ Producing CD8+ T Cells?

A curious researcher recently asked us to suggest suitable antigens that could stimulate IFNγ producing CD8+ T cells.  The short answer: Virus proteins.  But as with anything in immunology and virology, there is a longer, more complicated explanation as well.    Protein Antigens vs. Peptide Antigens CD8+ T cells normally recognize antigens that are produced…
