Targeting strategy

The exogenous promoter and human CD155 coding sequence was inserted to replace part of murine exon 2-3. The insertion disrupts the endogenous murine Cd155 gene, resulting in a non-functional transcript.

Application

B-hCD155 MC38 cells have the capability to establish tumors in vivo and can be used for efficacy studies.

Protein expression analysis

CD155 expression analysis in B-hCD155 MC38 cells by flow cytometry. Single cell suspensions from wild-type MC38 and B-hCD155 MC38 cultures were stained with species-specific anti-CD155 antibody. Human CD155 was detected on the surface of B-hCD155 MC38 cells but not wild-type MC38 cells. The 3-B8 clone of B-hCD155 MC38 cells was used for in vivo experiments.

Tumor growth curve & Body weight changes

Subcutaneous homograft tumor growth of B-hCD155 MC38 cells. B-hCD155 MC38 cells (1×107) and wild-type MC38 cells (5×105) were subcutaneously implanted into B-hTIGIT mice (female, 7-week-old, n=5). Tumor volume and body weight were measured twice a week. (A) Average tumor volume ± SEM. (B)  Body weight (Mean± SEM). Volume was expressed in mm3 using the formula: V=0.5 X long diameter X short diameter2. As shown in panel A, B-hCD155 MC38 cells were able to establish tumors in vivo and can be used for efficacy studies.

Protein expression analysis of tumor cells

B-hCD155 MC38 cells were subcutaneously transplanted into B-hTIGIT mice (n=5), and on 31 days post inoculation, tumor cells were harvested and assessed for human CD155 expression by flow cytometry. As shown, human CD155 was highly expressed on the surface of tumor cells. Therefore, B-hCD155 MC38 cells can be used for in vivo efficacy studies of novel CD15 therapeutics.
