Zusammenfassung

ABSTRACTCo-stimulatory signals induced by ligands of the tumor necrosis factor superfamily (TNFSF) play a central role in T cell activation and have emerged as a promising strategy in cancer immunotherapy. Here, we established a novel class of bifunctional co-stimulatory fusion proteins with the aim to boost T cell activation at the level of T cell – antigen-presenting cell (APC) interaction. These novel dual-acting cytokine fusion proteins were created by connecting two different homotrimeric TNFSF ligands to form homotrimeric bifunctional molecules (Duokines) or by connecting single-chain derivatives of two different homotrimeric TNFSF with a single, flexible linker (single-chain Duokines, scDuokines). By linking the TNFSF ligands 4-1BBL, OX40L and CD27L in all possible combinations, cis-acting Duokines were generated that act on the same or adjacent T cells, while combining CD40L with 4-1BBL, OX40L and CD27L resulted in trans-acting Duokines acting simultaneously on APCs and T cells. In vitro, co-stimu...
