Anti-VSV Peptide T cell receptor ((N30.7 TCRα)-3), pCDTCR1 (TCR-YC1363)

It was created a transgenic mouse that expressed exclusively the TCR α-chain of a VSV-specific, H-2Kb-restricted T cell clone (N30.7, Vα2/Vβ13). When the transgenic mice were immunized with the VSV peptide, Vβ13 was again the predominant Vβ element present in VSV-specific CTL populations. However, the TCR Vβ usage was profoundly altered when these transgenic mice were immunized with peptides carrying single replacements near the C terminus of VSV. Peptides with replacements at the N terminus of VSV were able to induce a strong cytotoxic response but did not alter the TCR Vβ usage.

  • Introduction
  • The VSV peptide, corresponding to residues 52–59 from the nucleocapsid of the vesicular stomatitis virus, binds to H-2Kb, triggering a strong immune response mediated by cytotoxic CD8+ T cells. Previous analysis of VSV-specific CTL clones revealed the preferential usage of the Vβ13 and Vβ8 elements. Functional studies and analysis of the crystal structure of the H-2Kb/VSV complex have allowed the potential TCR-contact residues of the VSV peptide to be identified. In the present work, we asked how single amino acid replacements in TCR-exposed positions of the VSV peptide would affect the TCR repertoire of the responding CD8+ T cell population.
