Initiation of an adaptive immune response depends on the detection of both antigenic epitopes and adjuvant signals. Infectious pathogens and cancer cells often avoid immune detection by limiting the release of danger signals from dying cells. When is cell death immunogenic and what are the pathophysiological implications of this process?

Necroptosis is a form of regulated cell death that critically depends on receptor-interacting serine-threonine kinase 3 (RIPK3) and mixed lineage kinase domain-like (MLKL) and generally manifests with morphological features of necrosis. The molecular mechanisms that underlie distinct instances of necroptosis have just begun to emerge. Nonetheless, it has already been shown that necroptosis contributes to cellular demise in various pathophysiological conditions, including viral infection, acute k...

Summary The ongoing Zika virus (ZIKV) epidemic and unexpected clinical outcomes, including Guillain-Barre syndrome and birth defects, has brought an urgent need for animal models. We evaluated infection and pathogenesis with contemporary and historical ZIKV strains in immunocompetent mice and mice lacking components of the antiviral response. Four- to six-week-old Irf3 −/− Irf5 −/− Irf7 −/− triple knockout mice, which produce little interferon α/β, and mice lacking the interferon receptor ( Ifna...

Successful immunogenic apoptosis in experimental cancer therapy depends on the induction of strong host anti-tumor responses. Given that tumors are often resistant to apoptosis, it is important to identify alternative molecular mechanisms that elicit immunogenic cell death. We have developed a genetic model in which direct dimerization of FADD combined with inducible expression of RIPK3 promotes necroptosis. We report that necroptotic cancer cells release damage-associated molecular patterns and...

Cellular components released into the external milieu as a result of cell death and sensed by the body are generally termed damage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs). Although DAMPs are conventionally thought to be protective to the host by evoking inflammatory responses important for immunity and wound repair, there is the prevailing notion that dysregulated release of DAMPs can also underlie or exacerbate disease development. However, the critical issue for how resultant DAMP-mediated respo...

Eukaryotic cells react to potentially dangerous perturbations of the intracellular or extracellular microenvironment by activating rapid (transcription-independent) mechanisms that attempt to restore homeostasis. If such perturbations persist, cells may still try to cope with stress by activating delayed and robust (transcription-dependent) adaptive systems, or they may actively engage in cellular suicide. This regulated form of cell death can manifest with various morphological, biochemical and...

In this Review, the authors discuss the emerging role of T cell receptor (TCR) specificity and signalling in the differentiation, maintenance and function of regulatory T (TReg) cells. Understanding how TCR signalling regulates TReg cells has important therapeutic implications in the regulation of immune tolerance and inflammation.

ABSTRACTChemotherapy can reinstate anticancer immunosurveillance through inducing tumor immunogenic cell death (ICD). Here, we show that anthracyclines and oxaliplatin can trigger necroptosis in murine cancer cell lines expressing receptor-interacting serine-threonine kinase 3 (RIP3) and mixed lineage kinase domain-like (MLKL). Necroptotic cells featured biochemical hallmarks of ICD and stimulated anticancer immune responses in vivo. Chemotherapy normally killed Rip3−/− and Mlkl−/− tumor cells a...

Abstract null null Cancer immunotherapy has improved the clinical outcomes of cancer treatment. In the context of immunotherapy, traditional chemotherapy also sees a new opportunity as a companion treatment. However, their optimal and safe delivery remains a challenge due to the systemic adverse effects. Local drug delivery systems can help reduce the systemic toxicity of immunotherapy by confining the immunostimulatory effects on tumors. Introducing immunoactive biomaterials and combinations of...

Abstract Photothermal therapy (PTT) is a promising therapeutic modality, but still faces some potential limitations, such as unfavorable thermal damage to normal tissues, limited light penetration depth, unpredictable tumor recurrence and metastasis. Additionally, mitochondria play a key role in maintaining multiple cellular functions, whereas displaying fragile thermal sensitivity. Herein, we report on the fabrication of an immunomodulator (R848)-loaded polymeric nanoparticles, R848@cRGD-PDCS, ...

Bromodomain and extra-terminal domain (BET) family proteins are epigenetic readers that play a critical role in oncogenesis by controlling the expression of oncogenes such as c-Myc. Targeting BET family proteins has recently emerged as a promising anticancer strategy. However, the molecular mechanisms by which cancer cells respond to BET inhibition are not well understood. In this study, we found that inducing the degradation of BET proteins by the proteolysis targeting chimeras (PROTAC) approac...

Abstract null null The antitumor immune response involves a cascade of cancer-immunity cycles. Developing a combination therapy aimed at the cancer-immunity cycle is of great importance. In this research, we designed and tested a combined therapeutic—Au nanorod (AuNR)/doxorubicin (DOX) gel (AuNR/DOX gel)—in which the sustained release of DOX was controlled by Pluronic gel. DOX served as an immunogenic tumor cell death (ICD) inducer, triggering the production of damage-associated molecular patter...

The cancer-immunity cycle (CIC) comprises a series of events that are required for immune-mediated control of tumor growth. Interruption of one or more steps of the CIC enables tumors to evade immunosurveillance. However, attempts to restore antitumor immunity by reactivating the CIC have had limited success thus far. Recently, numerous studies have implicated metabolic reprogramming of tumor and immune cells within the tumor microenvironment (TME) as key contributors to immune evasion. In this ...

Background null Targeted thorium-227 conjugates (TTCs) are an emerging class of targeted alpha therapies (TATs). Their unique mode of action (MoA) is the induction of difficult-to-repair clustered DNA double-strand breaks. However, thus far, their effects on the immune system are largely unknown. Here, we investigated the immunostimulatory effects of the mesothelin-targeted thorium-227 conjugate (MSLN-TTC) in vitro and in vivo in monotherapy and in combination with an inhibitor of the immune che...

Tumor progression requires bidirectional cell-to-cell communication within a complex tumor microenvironment (TME). Extracellular vesicles (EVs) as carriers have the capacity to shuttle regulatory molecules, including nucleic acids, proteins, and lipids, between cancer cells and multiple stromal cells, inducing remarkable phenotypic alterations in the TME. Recently proposed the concept "immunogenic stress", which means in some stressed microenvironment, cancer cells can release EVs containing spe...

Background: Lung cancer is a common malignant tumor that threatens human life and is associated with high morbidity and mortality rates. Calreticulin (CALR) is a antigen characteristic of immunogenic cell death in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), which is closely related to anti-tumor immunity, but its specific mechanism in anti-tumor immunity remains unclear. Methods: Immunohistochemical staining was performed to detect the expression of CALR and dendritic cell-lysosome-associated membrane g...
