Dendritic cells (DCs) play key role in eliciting antigen (Ag)-specific immune responses, and crucial to this is the uptake of Ag via surface receptors including the heterodimeric integrin CD11c/CD18. Here we report that CD11c/CD18-interacting peptides can be used as targeting moieties to deliver liposomal Ag to antigen presenting cells (APCs) and elicit Ag-specific and antitumor immunity. Two peptides of sequence related to human ICAM-4 and previously reported to bind CD11c/CD18, and a 12-mer...[Show more]
