Detailed product information

Background information

Survivin is a bifunctional protein that suppresses apoptosis and regulates mitosis. It is expressed during development in proliferating cells, but remains absent in differentiated tissue. In most human solid malignancies and in leukemia elevated levels of survivin are found contributing to the survival and proliferation of tumor cells. In cancer patients survivin-specific T cell reactivity has been observed. Thus, survivin is described as a candidate target antigen for immunotherapeutic interventions.

Downstream applications

The
in vitro
stimulation of Survivin 1–specific CD4
+
and CD8
+
T cells with PepTivator Survivin 1 causes the secretion of effector cytokines and the up-regulation of activation markers, such as CD154 or CD137. These cytokines or activation markers then allow the detection and isolation of Survivin 1 –specific T cells.
  • Detection and analysis of Survivin 1–specific CD4+ and CD8+ effector/memory T cells in PBMCs by MACS® Cytokine Secretion Assays, intracellular cytokine staining, or other technologies
  • Isolation of viable Survivin 1–specific CD4+ T cells with the CD154 MicroBead Kit, or of CD4+ and CD8+ T cells using the CD137 MicroBead Kit or MACS Cytokine Secretion Assay – Cell Enrichment and Detection Kits. Subsequently, cells can be expanded for generation of T cell lines.
  • Generation of Survivin 1–specific CD4+ and CD8+ effector/memory T cells from naive T cell populations for research on immunotherapy and vaccination.
  • Pulsing of antigen-presenting cells.
