pCDCAR1 FRA h(ICOSζ)(CAR-LC040)
The vector of anti-CD37 chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) is constructed for the engineering of T cells to target human CD37. The T cells are genetically modified through transduction with a lentiviral vector expressing scFv of anti-CD37 antibody linked to CD3ζ and ICOS (CD278) signaling domains. And the vector product was designed for the treatment of ovarian cancer.

Discription of Signaling Cassetes
CD278 or ICOS (Inducible T-cell COStimulator) is a CD28-superfamily costimulatory molecule that is expressed on activated T cells. It is thought to be important for Th2 cells in particular. ICOS is constitutively expressed on TH17 cells and anti-CD3/ICOS stimulation induced RORγt and T-bet expression in these cells, leading to increased secretion of IL-17A, IL-21, and IFN-γ compared with CD3/CD28 stimulation.
CD3ζ, also known as T-cell receptor zeta, which together with T-cell receptor and CD3γ, δ , ε chain, forms the TCR-CD3 complex. ζ was expressed independently from the complex. The zeta chain plays an important role in coupling antigen recognition to several intracellular signal-transduction pathways. CD3-zeta, which contains 3 ITAMs, is the most commonly used endodomain component of CARs. It transmits an activation signal to the T cell after antigen is bound. CD3-zeta may not provide a fully competent activation signal and additional co-stimulatory signaling is needed. For example, chimeric CD28 and OX40 can be used with CD3-zeta to transmit a proliferative/survival signal, or all three can be used together.
