Immunocore | Date: 2012-10-09

A T cell receptor (TCR) having the property of binding to EVDPIGHLY HLA-A1 complex and comprising a specified wild type TCR which has specific mutations in the TCR alpha variable domain and/or the TCR beta variable domain to increase affinity. Such TCRs are useful for adoptive therapy.

The present invention provides T cell receptors (TCRs) having the property of binding to SLLMWITQC-HLA-A*0201, the SLLMWITQC peptide being derived from the NY-ESO-1 protein which is expressed by a range of tumour cells. The TCRs have a K

The invention provides a method for predicting whether a binding peptide, which binds to a target peptide presented by a Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) and is for administration to a subject, has the potential to cross react with another peptide in the subject in vivo. The method comprises the steps of identifying at least one binding motif in the target peptide to which the binding peptide binds; and searching for peptides that are present in the subject that comprise the at least one binding motif and that are not the target peptide. The presence of one or more such peptides indicates that the binding peptide has the potential to cross react in vivo.

A T cell receptor (TCR) having the property of binding to the gp100 YLEPGPVTA peptide-HLA-A2 complex and comprising a TCR alpha variable domain and/or a TCR beta variable domain, characterized in that the domains are mutated relative to a TCR having the extracellular alpha and beta chain sequences SEQ ID NOs: 2 and that the TCR has a binding affinity for, and/or a binding half-life for, the YLEPGPVTA-HLA-A2 complex at least double that of a reference TCR. Embodiments of the invention such as the use of such TCRs in adoptive therapy, and fusions of such TCRs with therapeutic agents are also described.
