General Control Protein GCN4, is a transcription factor for over 30 genes necessary for amino acid or purine biosynthesis in the case of amino acid or purine starvation. As a transcription factor located in the nucleus, GCN4 regulates many genes connected to purine biosynthesis, autophagy, multiple stress responses, glycogen homeostasis, and organelle biosynthesis. A specific antibody conjugated to GCN4 peptide can be used to redirect the activity of the CAR-T cells to antigen expressing cancer cells.
