The proposed research set to 1 create and characterize CD22-binding peptides that initiate signal transduction and apoptosis in non-Hodgkin s lymphoma NHL, 2 optimize CD22-mediated signal transduction and lymphomacidal properties of ligand blocking anti-CD22 monoclonal antibodies mAbs and peptides with CD22-specific phosphatase inhibition and 3 correlate mAb-mediated and anti-CD22 peptide-mediated in vivo physiologic changes, efficacy, and tumor targeting using advanced immuno-positron emission topography i-PET and FDG-PET imaging technology. Since funding we have identified five peptides that are based on CDR s of anti-CD22 mAbs. Peptide 5 has been characterized and described in the annual report for year 1 and 2. Because peptide 5 was not target specific it could not be developed further. We then created reagents in year 3 to optimize targeting CD22 epithelial cell line and a new combinatorial peptide library. Within year 4 we identified addition peptides that one of which was B cell and CD22 specific peptide 8. This peptide was found to induce effective cell killing in the lymphoma cell line, Ramos. We have now begun to characterize the specificity, signaling, cytotoxic and apoptotic potential.
