SLAMF6 receptor is a novel potential target for the modulation of T cell anti-tumor activity!

In the study now published by Emma Hajaj, MD. PhD. student from Prof. Michal Lotems’ lab, the SLAMF6 receptor deficiency is crucial for the success of adoptive T cell therapy in mice, supporting the notion that SLAMF6 is an inhibitory immune receptor whose absence enables powerful CD8+ T cells to eradicate tumors.
