The quest for spatio-temporal control of CAR T cells
Receptors, Antigen, T-Cell
Small Molecule Libraries
Chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) are synthetic receptors capable of directing potent antigen-specific anti-tumor T cell responses. A recent report by Wu et al. extends a series of strategies aiming to curb excessive T cell activity, utilizing in this instance a chemical dimerizer to aggregate antigen-binding, T cell-activating and costimulatory domains.
