Fc γ receptor (FcγR) coengagement can facilitate antibody-mediated receptor activation in target cells. In particular, agonistic antibodies that target tumor necrosis factor receptor (TNFR) family members have shown dependence on expression of the inhibitory FcγR, FcγRIIB. It remains unclear if engagement of FcγRIIB also extends to the activities of(More)
Peptide deformylase (PDF) catalyses the removal of the formyl group from the first methionine of nascent proteins. Type 1 PDFs are found in bacteria and have orthologues in most eukaryotes. Type 2 PDFs are restricted to bacteria. Type 3 enzymes are found in Archaea and trypanosomatids and have not been studied experimentally yet. Thus, TbPDF1 and TbPDF2,(More)
GITR/TNFRSF18 is a member of the TNF-receptor superfamily preferentially expressed on regulatory T cells (Tregs) and activated T effector cells. Antibody agonists to GITR claim two distinct mechanisms to overcome the repressive tumor microenvironment and drive anti-tumor efficacy in vivo: receptor agonism (forward signaling) on T effector cells and(More)
