Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Mucins are high molecular weight glycoproteins designed for cellular protection and sensing the external environment. Aberrant glycosylation and altered mucin expression seen in cancers are implicated in mucin dependent refraction to immunosurveilance and immunosuppressive induction around the tumor. Though mucins provide molecular targets for immune system's tumor recognition, their characteristics dictate that the nature of immune response required for recognition and lyses of mucin expressing tumors need to follow predominantly a MHC - unrestricted, αβ TCR mediated effector cell response. Frequent loss of DC maturation and elimination of reactive lymphocytes, altered adhesive and anti-adhesive properties of the mucins promote tumor survival and escape from the immune response.
