T cells, the cellular arm of the acquired immune response, play a central role in many inflammatory diseases, autoimmunity and cancer. This approach allows identification and tracking of disease associated, in vivo expanded T cells. CDR3 spectratyping combined with sequencing was used to identify expanded TCC in polyclonal T-cell populations from blood or tissue.
Furthermore, the genomic approach did not allow concomitant gene expression analysis of T cells. TCC were generated from cerebrospinal fluid CSF and blood of patients with inflammatory disease or brain tumors as described previously. Patients gave written informed consent. Several PE- or FITC-labeled antibodies were combined in one staining, when the staining of the antibodies could be discriminated on the basis of the staining intensity.
Further subtyping was performed when the combined staining did not provide clear results. After removal of the supernatant the cell pellet was resuspended in 0. After sorting, the plate was immediately put on dry ice. Staining was performed with an enhancing and quick staining kit and anti-human CD8 mAb according to supplier's protocol Dako.
All solutions were prepared with DEPC-treated water. The samples were then processed in the same way as the single T cells sorted by flow cytometry. Frozen samples were thawed on ice. Cycle number was reduced to 40 cycles. To increase the sensitivity of the assay for single cell analysis, we designed an additional nested primer in the C region CP2.
The gap between 31 and 39—44 does not represent a gap in the primer sequence but is due to the unique IMGT numbering. First, we investigated the specificity of the primer pairs. The results matched between these two methods when cDNA was derived from clonal T-cell populations Figure 2. PCR products were visualized on an agarose gel upper part and sequenced. Five representative antibody stainings of corresponding TCC are displayed below. The same analysis was performed with T cells isolated from tumor tissue, either separated by tissue digestion, Percoll centrifugation and cell sorting or by LCM from frozen brain tissue Figure 3a and b.
PCR products from eight single cells are shown lower graph. Gene transcript analysis of tissue infiltrating clonotypic T cells can provide important insights into their function and phenotype. T cells play a central role in the defence against infectious diseases and cancer but are also essential for the generation of autoimmunity. Armed antigen-specific T cells circulate through the body and accumulate and persist at sites of antigen exposure.
While T cells with known epitope specificity can be identified and analyzed by immunological staining techniques eg tetramer staining or intracellular cytokine release , this approach is not feasible when multiple target antigens exist or disease-associated antigens are unknown. This is particularly true for complex infectious diseases eg most bacterial infections , diseases with yet unknown etiology eg most autoimmune diseases and cancer.
Identifying these cells provides a basis to decrypt their target antigens but also allows characterizing their phenotype and function by gene expression analysis in comparison to polyclonal T cells, which are most likely unspecifically recruited to the inflamed tissue. CDR3 spectratyping technique combined with sequencing can identify clonotypic T cells in blood and tissue compartments 7 but this technique is not appropriate for large-scale screening of individual TCCs or single cell analysis.
The efficacy of the approach at the single cell level is comparable to other methods which focus on the amplification of less complex rearranged BCR genes. Applying this strategy we can easily determine the level of T-cell clonality within inflamed organ tissues. After identification of dominant clonotypes, which likely represents the most specific and relevant compartment of the T-cell response, we can determine the gene expression profile of these cells in the diseased target organ.
The approach provides an excellent tool to characterize the local T-cell response in tissues affected by infections, autoimmune diseases or cancer. Ligand recognition by alpha beta T cell receptors.
