  • CD28
  • Ordinarily, full T-cell activation requires binding of the T-cell receptor to an antigen-MHC complex on the antigen-presenting cell as well as a co-stimulatory signal provided by the binding of the CD28 protein on the surface of the T-cell with the CD80/86 proteins on the surface of the antigen-presenting cell. (drugbank.ca)
  • CTLA4 is a naturally occurring protein which is expressed on the surface of T-cells some hours or days after full T-cell activation and is capable of binding to CD80/86 on antigen-presenting cells with much greater affinity than CD28. (drugbank.ca)
  • CD80 is a 'co-stimulatory' molecule that is part of the CD80/CD28 pathway required for activation of T lymphocytes. (medindia.net)
  • In order to try and prevent bone loss in the research mice whose ovaries were removed and determine how reactive oxygen was exerting its toxic effects, the research team treated the mice with the immunosuppressant CTLA4-Ig, which prevents the activation of T cells by blocking the binding of CD80 to CD28. (medindia.net)
  • Negative selection is the process by which the developing lymphocyte receptor repertoire rids itself of autoreactive specificities.One mechanism requires simultaneous TCR and costimulatory signals initiated by CD28.We propose that these mechanisms represent two distinct clonal deletion strategies that are differentially implemented during development depending on whether immature thymocytes encounter antigen in the thymic cortex or thymic medulla. (nih.gov)
  • Association of the TCR of a naive T cell with MHC:antigen complex without CD28:B7 interaction results in a T cell that is anergic. (wikipedia.org)
  • More recent work has suggested that CTLA-4 may function in vivo by capturing and removing B7-1 and B7-2 from the membranes of antigen-presenting cells, thus making these unavailable for triggering of CD28. (wikipedia.org)
  • CTLA-4 can also affect signalling indirectly via competing with CD28 for CD80/86 binding. (wikipedia.org)
  • CD48 and CD2 molecular coupling together with other interaction pairs of CD28 and CD80, TCR and peptide-MHC and LFA-1 and ICAM-1 contribute to the formation of an immunological synapse between a T cell and an antigen presenting cell. (wikipedia.org)
  • receptors
  • Specialized gamma delta T cells, (a small minority of T cells in the human body, more frequent in ruminants), have invariant T-cell receptors with limited diversity, that can effectively present antigens to other T cells and are considered to be part of the innate immune system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Ligand
  • CD80 inmobilised into and ligand added. (cam.ac.uk)
  • Once bound to a cancer antigen, antibodies can induce antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity, activate the complement system, or prevent a receptor from interacting with its ligand, all of which can lead to cell death. (wikipedia.org)
  • Protein
  • In addition to that, it has been found, dendritic cell (DC) - Treg interaction causes sequestration of Fascin-1, an actin-bundling protein essential for immunological synapse formation, and skews Fascin-1-dependent actin polarization in antigen presenting DCs toward the T reg cell adhesion zone. (wikipedia.org)
  • Antibody
  • Durvalumab is a human immunoglobulin G1 kappa (IgGIk) monoclonal antibody that blocks PD-L1 binding to PD-1 and CD80. (drugbank.ca)
  • Major
  • The first signal is the major histocompatibility complex (MHC), which in humans is also called the human leukocyte antigen (HLA). (wikipedia.org)
  • encounter
  • We propose that these mechanisms represent two distinct clonal deletion strategies that are differentially implemented during development depending on whether immature thymocytes encounter antigen in the thymic cortex or thymic medulla. (nih.gov)
  • Appropriate co-stimulation must be present at the time of antigen encounter for this process to occur. (wikipedia.org)
