Summary of "Generation of a T cell receptor (TCR)-like single domain antibody (sDAb) against a Mycobacterium Tuberculosis (Mtb) heat shock protein (HSP) 16kDa antigen presented by Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA)-A*02."

The discovery of heat shock protein 16 kDa antigen protein has deepen the understanding of latent tuberculosis since it was found to be primarily expressed by Mycobacterium tuberculosis during latent phase leading to the rapid optimization and development in terms of diagnosis and therapeutics. Recently, T cell receptor-like antibody has been explored extensively targeting various diseases due to its dual functionality (T cell receptor and antibody). In this study, a TCR-like domain antibody (A2/Ab) with the binding capacity to Mtb heat shock protein (HSP) 16 kDa antigen presented by major histocompatible complex (MHC) HLA-A*02 was successfully generated via biopanning against human domain antibody library. The generated antibody (A2/Ab) exhibited strong functionality and binding capacity against the target assuring the findings of this study to be beneficial for the development of latent tuberculosis diagnosis and immunotherapeutics in future.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A discoidin domain receptor for FIBRILLAR COLLAGEN that functions in a variety of cellular processes. For example, it regulates cell attachment to the EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX, remodeling of the extracellular matrix, CELL MIGRATION; CELL DIFFERENTIATION; CELL PROLIFERATION; and CELL SURVIVAL.

A cell surface receptor for INSULIN. It comprises a tetramer of two alpha and two beta subunits which are derived from cleavage of a single precusor protein. The receptor contains an intrinsic TYROSINE KINASE domain that is located within the beta subunit. Activation of the receptor by INSULIN results in numerous metabolic changes including increased uptake of GLUCOSE into the liver, muscle, and ADIPOSE TISSUE.

A receptor that is specific for IGF-II and mannose-6-phosphate. The receptor is a 250-kDa single chain polypeptide which is unrelated in structure to the type 1 IGF receptor (RECEPTOR, IGF TYPE 1) and does not have a tyrosine kinase domain.

A discoidin domain receptor for FIBRILLAR COLLAGEN and non-fibrillar COLLAGEN TYPE X. It functions in many cellular and developmental processes that include remodeling of the EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX; CELL MIGRATION; CELL DIFFERENTIATION; and CELL PROLIFERATION; as well as OSTEOGENESIS and the maturation of CHONDROCYTES.

A subclass of receptor-like protein tryosine phosphatases that contain a short extracellular domain, a cytosolic kinase-interaction domain, and single protein tyrosine kinase domain.
