Systematic name M3662
Brief description Genes down-regulated in comparison of stimulated memory CD8 T cells from pmel-1 mice versus stimulated naive CD8 T cells from pmel-1 mice.
Full description or abstract Effector cells for adoptive immunotherapy can be generated by in vitro stimulation of na´ve or memory subsets of CD8+ T cells. While the characteristics of CD8+ T cell subsets are well defined, the heritable influence of those populations on their effector cell progeny is not well understood. We studied effector cells generated from na´ve or central memory CD8+ T cells and found that they retained distinct gene expression signatures and developmental programs. Effector cells derived from central memory cells tended to retain their CD62L+ phenotype, but also to acquire KLRG1, an indicator of cellular senescence. In contrast, the effector cell progeny of na´ve cells displayed reduced terminal differentiation, and, following infusion, they displayed greater expansion, cytokine production, and tumor destruction. These data indicate that effector cells retain a gene expression imprint conferred by their na´ve or central memory progenitors, and they suggest a strategy for enhancing cancer immunotherapy.
