Pan-cancer tumor-specific antigens and membrane targets from transposable elements

ABSTRACT: Cryptic promoters within transposable elements (TEs) are transcriptionally reactivated in tumors to create novel TE-gene chimeric transcripts, which can produce immunogenic antigens. We performed the most comprehensive screen to date for these TE exaptation events in 33 TCGA tumor types, 675 cancer cell lines, and 11,686 GTEx adult tissue transcriptomes and identified 1,068 TE-exapted candidates with the potential to generate shared tumor-specific TE-chimeric antigens (TS-TEAs). Resultant whole lysate and HLA-pulldown mass spectrometry data confirmed that TS-TEAs are presented on cancer cell surfaces. In addition, we highlight the tumor-specific membrane proteins transcribed from TE promoters that can expose novel epitopes on the extracellular surface of cancer cells. Here, we showcase the high pan-cancer prevalence of TS-TEAs and atypical membrane proteins that can be therapeutically exploited through immunotherapy approaches.
