Scientists at the University of California have identified a new property that may inspire new anti-tumor therapies.
The university said; The new research shows that T cells activate themselves in surrounding tissues through a previously undescribed form of auto-cell signaling, enhancing their ability to attack tumours.
The new study showed that T cells are a type of white blood cell that protects against infection and helps fight cancer.
According to the Canadian medical website, “My Pathology Report”, T cells are a type of white blood cell and part of the immune system, and are largely found in lymphoid organs such as lymph nodes scattered throughout the body, and large numbers of T cells can also be found in An area of inflammation due to infection or injury.
The medical site explained that T cells help protect the body from infection, and they can also kill infected cells directly.-
The new research focuses on training T cells in lymphoid organs, known as T lymphocytes, to recognize and attack cancerous cells, known as antigen or antigen, and attack them, stimulating the immune response.-
The research stated that an essential part of this process is the binding of B7, or B7, a protein on the surface of antigen-presenting cells (exoantigens or carcinogens), with CD28, or CD28, a receptor on T cells.
According to research, the interaction of p7 with CD28 is a major driver of the T-cell immune response. Once trained, the T cells leave the lymphatic organs and travel throughout the human body to find and attack their diseased cell targets.
The site explained that recent research had previously revealed that T cells could indeed produce their own B7 protein, or take the B7 protein from antigen-presenting cells and bring it with them, but exactly why they did this remained unclear.
This also led the researchers to ask whether the T cells, now equipped with both p7 and CD28, would be able to activate themselves.
