TCR-(EB specific pMH)-CXCR3 (Puro)


Lentivirus express CXCR3 enhanced TCR construct “(TRαV3-F2A-TRβV5-6)-CXCR3″, recognizing a Epstein-Barr virus, containing Puromycin antibiotic selection. 

SKU: LVP1693 Category:


Lentivirus express peptide-major histocompatibility (pMH) specific T Cell Receptor (recognizing a Epstein-Barr virus) and CXCR3 receptor, containing Puromycin antibiotic selection.

The TCR construct express the antibody specifically recognizes the a Epstein-Barr virus-specific pMH (Ref 1). The TCR α chain variable region with a transmembrane (TM) domain  and β chain variable region with a transmembrane (TM) domain, are linked by F2A element, as “(TRαV3/Tm)-F2A-(TRβV5-6/Tm)

By optimizing the homing of engineered T cells to tumor sites through the expression of CXCR3, it might be possible to improve the efficacy of TCR cell therapies in the context of cancer immunotherapy.

The “target-specific TCRαV and TCRβV sequences” are derived from the verified clones according to published literatures. It also transduces a Puromycin selection gene under the separate RSV promoter, which allow to enrich or select the transduced cells. see the Lentivector core structure scheme below.

About pMH (peptide-major histocompatibility):

TCRs recognize short peptides bound to and presented by class I and II major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules on the cell surface. The binding of TCRs to their target pMHC ligands initializes the cell-mediated immune response. The discovery of TCR-pMHC pairs is a challenging task as identifying tumor-specific pMHC ligands. the identification of therapeutically relevant TCR-pMHC will lead to the activation of T cells against infectious diseases and tumors.

About CXCR3:

CXCR3 is a G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) expressed on the surface of various immune cells, including T cells. The primary function of CXCR3 is to bind to specific chemokines, such as CXCL9, CXCL10, and CXCL11, which are often induced in response to inflammation. It plays a role in the recruitment of T cells to inflamed tissues, with enhanced antitumor immune responses.
