KK-LC-1 TCR-Ts display tumor recognition in vitro and mediate tumor regression in vivo. a Human CD8+ T cells from each of 2 donors were transduced to express the KK-LC-1 TCR (KK-LC-1 TCR-Ts) or were not transduced (UT-Ts). Tumor recognition was tested in an overnight coculture assay with the target cell line indicated on the x-axis. The quantity of IFN-γ in the culture supernatants was determined by ELISA. Expression of CT83 and HLA-A*01:01 by each target cell line is indicated in the key below the x-axis. HLA-A*01:01 transduced cell lines were CT83+ and transduced with a γ-retrovirus to express HLA-A*01:01. “PMA/Iono” indicates T cells that were stimulated with PMA and ionomycin. “T cells alone” indicates T cells that were cultured without target cells or stimulation. b KK-LC-1 TCR-Ts or control T cells indicated in the figure legend were administered intravenously to NSG mice bearing established 4156 or A375 subcutaneous tumors (as indicated above each graph). Serial tumor measurements were plotted at the timepoints indicated on the x-axis. Untreated mice did not receive any therapy. UT-Ts were not transduced. DMF-5 TCR-Ts target an irrelevant antigen (melanoma associated antigen-1) [12]. N = 10 mice per group. Error bars indicate the standard error of the mean. This experiment was performed twice with similar results
