  • Tyrosinase-related protein 2 (TRP2) is a melanosomal enzyme expressed in most mammalian melanocytes and melanomas. This protein has been identified as a melanoma antigen recognized by tumor reactive CTLs derived from tumor infiltrating lymphocytes in the context of HLA-A31 and HLA-A33. The frequencies of these HLA-A alleles among melanoma patients in the United States is low (approximately 6% for HLA-A31 and approximately 2% for HLA-A33) compared with that of HLA-A*0201 (approximately 46… CONTINUE READING
