Although they don't make antibodies, other immune cells use this same shuffling mechanism to create on their surfaces similar microbe-binding proteins called T cell receptors.
Cell Medica, in collaboration with strategic partners, is developing a range of products using three proprietary technology platforms including activated T cells, chimeric antigen receptors and engineered T cell receptors. Cell Medica has subsidiaries in Zurich and Houston.
The company is focused on chimeric antigen receptor and T cell receptor engineered cell therapies.
The companies will collaborate to identify and validate tumor targets and their corresponding T cell receptors (TCRs) in one or more types of cancer.
The gene NR2B is part of a brain cell receptor called the NMDA receptor.
The resulting binding, which then triggers the body's defensive activities, is stronger than the sum of the individual binding that would result from the T cell receptor and CD8 co-receptor operating independently.
City of Hope (Duarte, CA) has patented a genetically engineered, CD19-specific chimeric T cell receptor and to immune cells expressing the chimeric receptor The present invention also relates to the use of such cells for cellular immunotherapy of CD9.sup.+ malignancies and for abrogating any untoward B cell function.
In previous research, the scientists took CD8 cytotoxic T lymphocytes--the "killer" T cells that help fight infection--from an HIV-infected individual and identified the molecule known as the T cell receptor, which guides the T cell in recognizing and killing HIV-infected cells.
Sulfated ligands may possess a regulatory role in HA - cell receptor binding (8, 9).

Nef: an HIV regulatory gene that plays a major role in viral pathogenesis; the Nef protein has numerous effects including protecting infected host cells from apoptosis (see above) and altering cell receptor expression and distribution.
