Gene & Cell Therapy Development.

Rational Design and Efficient Process Controls.

Cell therapies such as CAR-T and CAR-NK become more efficacious and cost effective through (1) automation and improvements in process control and (2) improved CAR design. Next generation protein sequencing (NGPS) allows discovery of (or understanding and engineering of) scFv and hinge regions from IgG for modulation of binding affinity, epitopic activity and FcγR activity – key insights for rational design. NGPS also allows for rapid assay development by finding and engineering good binders, identification of PTMs, development of enrichment tools for manufacturing/production, as well as development of validation tools for in vivo assessments.

Gene therapies require study by NGPS in order to identify PTMs associated with viral vectors (e.g. AAV) and to sequence, study, and engineer the viral capsid protein.

CAR-iNKT Cells Targeting Clonal TCRVβ Chains as a Precise Strategy to Treat T Cell Lymphoma

Tags: , , , , , , , , |

With 22 functional T cell receptor (TCR)Vβ subunit families making up the normal T cell repertoire, signals from these cell surface receptors often determine the fate of normal cells. However, mutations in TCR signaling proteins are frequently associated with peripheral T cell lymphomas (TCLs), including adult T cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATL), which indicates a driving role for TCRs in TCL oncogenesis. As TCL and ATL are clonal in nature, tumour cells typically express a single TCRVβ subunit with no bias in the usage of TCRVβ subunit families. Consequently, targeting the specific TCRVβ subunit presents a promising therapeutic approach that is highly selective and tumour-specific.

Towards Antigen-Specific Tregs for Type 1 Diabetes: Construction and Functional Assessment of Pancreatic Endocrine Marker, HPi2-Based Chimeric Antigen Receptor

Antibodies with established, specific targets can be sequenced and utilized to engineer the hinge region and antigen-binding domains with antibody fragments and derivatives. With the sequence information in hand, further steps to optimizing a viable therapeutic approach can be more accessible.

“We’re focused on coupling cytokines with a highly engineered VHVL of an antibody. So by sequencing the antibodies with Rapid Novor we are able to pull out the CDR to graft them into our platform and test in vitro and in vivo.”
