Human PD-L1-expressing B cells

Raji-hPD-L1 cells were developed from the Raji cell line, a human B lymphocyte-derived cell line. Raji cells have been successfully used as target cells in CAR-T toxicity assays as well as in human effector studies such as antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC), either with peripheral blood mononuclear cells, natural killer (NK) cells, or T cell-derived Jurkat reporter cells.

PD-L1 (programmed cell death ligand 1; also known as CD274 or B7-H1) is a transmembrane protein expressed at the cell surface of hematopoietic and nonhematopoietic cells and is induced by pro-inflammatory cytokines, such as in the tumor microenvironment  [1].  PD-L1 is one ligand for PD-1, an inhibitory immune checkpoint receptor that is expressed by activated and exhausted T cells. PD-1:PD-L1 interaction induces inhibition of T-cell receptor signaling, thereby preventing T-cell overstimulation and host damage [1].

Surface expressed markers and ICs in Raji-hPD-L1 cells

  • Stable overexpression of the human PD-L1 gene 
  • Characterized by a number of cell-surface expressed markers including the B cell receptor (BCR), CD19, and CD20
  • Constitutive expression of various immune checkpoints (ICs) such as CD27, CD70, CD80, PD-L1, and 4-1BBL
  • The stability for 20 passages following thawing has been verified

Applications for Raji-hPD-L1 cells:

  • Target cell line for ADCC assays using InvivoGen's Jurkat-Lucia™ NFAT-CD16 cells
  • Target cell line for cell toxicity assays using NK or CAR-T cells
  • For use in the development of other functional assays

Validation of the expression of human PD-L1 by Raji-hPD-L1 cells

Validation of the expression of human PD-L1 by Raji-hPD-L1 cells. Raji-Null (A) and Raji‑hPD-L1 (B) cells were incubated with a PE‑conjugated Anti-hPD-L1 mAb for 30 minutes. The binding affinity was then measured using flow cytometry.

Comparison of ADCC potency for native and engineered anti-human PD-L1 antibody isotypes
Comparison of ADCC potency for native and engineered anti-human PD-L1 antibody isotypes

Comparison of ADCC potency for native and engineered anti-human PD-L1 antibody isotypes. Raji-hPD-L1 cells were incubated with gradient concentrations of Anti-hPD-L1 or Anti-β-galactosidase (β-gal) mAbs for 1 hour. Jurkat-Lucia™ NFAT-CD16 effector cells were then co-incubated with target cells for 6 hours. NFAT activation, reflecting the induced ADCC response, was assessed by determining Lucia luciferase activity in the supernatant using QUANTI-Luc™. Percentages of the maximal response normalized to the IgG1 isotype are shown.
