Research to enhance antitumor immunity supported by UMH Supercomputing Cluster
New works relative to explore the PD-L1-targeted effects of mechanistically diverse metabolism-targeting drugs have been supported by the UMH Supercomputing Cluster (Castleblack). It is a new paper published in which is collected computing work done in the cluster of the UMH.
Using biochemical assays, computer-aided docking/molecular dynamics simulations, and fluorescence microscopy, the authors of this research have found that RSV can operate as a direct inhibitor of glyco-PD-L1-processing enzymes (α-glucosidase/α-mannosidase) that modulate N-linked glycan decoration of PD-L1, thereby promoting the endoplasmic reticulum retention of a mannose-rich, abnormally glycosylated form of PD-L1.
The paper has been titled as “Resveratrol targets PD-L1 glycosylation and dimerization to enhance antitumor T-cell immunity”, and has been published at AGING (DOI https://doi.org/10.18632/aging.102646)
