Summary Our team identified the known natural mucosal-associated invariant T (MAIT) cell antigens, small molecule antigens which derive from microbial riboflavin biosynthesis. We seek to further understand how these antigens are produced and whether other antigens exist.
Our team identified the known natural MAIT cell antigens, small molecule antigens which derive from microbial riboflavin biosynthesis. We seek to further understand how these antigens are produced and whether other antigens exist. We have preliminary data for three projects on MAIT cell antigen discovery that we are happy to discuss in detail in person. Broadly speaking, MAIT cell antigen discovery involves in vitro cell line model systems, human blood cell assays, flow cytometry, microbial culture and our proven protein-folding/mass-spectrometry approach.
