As part of the adaptive immune response, activated T cells recognize and destroy cancer cells. These cells are activated via dendritic cells that serve to stimulate the T-cell receptor (TCR) in mature T cells with cognate antigen-MHC complexes in parallel with additional costimulatory checkpoint signals.
Activation of other immune cells, such as NK cells and dendritic cells, also plays a key role in modulating the tumor-specific immune response.
Choose the best immune cell markers for your research
Cancer cells employ several immunosuppressive mechanisms to prevent the protective function of the immune system. For example, by downregulating tumor antigen expression on their surface, cancer cells can evade subsequent recognition.
Antigens, such as the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) proteins or costimulatory molecules, can also be downregulated to impair antigen presentation. Expression of resistance molecules, such as STAT3, may be increased by cancer cells, leading to impaired maturation of antigen-presenting cells, such as dendritic cells.
