Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) presentation and specific T cell-priming by human dendritic cells transfected with CEA-mRNA


Eppler, E; Hörig, H; Kaufman, H L; Groscurth, P; Filgueira, L (2002). Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) presentation and specific T cell-priming by human dendritic cells transfected with CEA-mRNA. European Journal of Cancer, 38(1):184-193.

Abstract

The feasibility of dendritic cells (DC) for cancer immunotherapy after transfection by electroporation with mRNA encoding the human carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) was investigated. Both, total RNA from the CEA(+) colon cancer cell line SW480 and mRNA transcribed in vitro from cDNA3.1-plasmids (pcDNA3.1+/-HisC) with a CEA-insert (ivt-CEA-mRNA, ivt-CEA/HisC-mRNA) were used. Labelled ivt-CEA-mRNA was detectable in DC by light and electron microscopy and by fluorescence-activated cell-sorting (FACS) even 15 min after electroporation. Four hours after transfection with ivt-CEA/HisC-mRNA, we detected specific expression of CEA and the histidine-tag by immunofluorescence microscopy and by FACS. CEA-specific T lymphocytes were successfully primed by transfected DC and were able to lyse CEA-expressing target cells, even from the CEA-expressing human colon adenocarcinoma cell line SW480. Thus, DC transfected by electroporation with CEA-mRNA are valuable tools for the immunotherapy of CEA(+) tumour entities.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
