Researchers discover T cells use mechanical force to “hook” cancer cells


Immunotherapy, as one of the most promising cancer treatments, boosts the body’s immune system to fight cancer by activating T cells. T-cell receptors (TCRs) on T cell surface specifically and sensitively recognize rare foreign antigen or tumor neoantigen presented by major histocompatibility complexes (pMHCs) on cancer cells, which plays a vital role in recognizing and killing cancer cells. Howe...
