Identification of TCR repertoires in functionally competent cytotoxic T cells cross-reactive to SARS-CoV-2

SARS-CoV-2-specific CD8+ T cells are scarce but detectable in unexposed healthy donors (UHDs). It remains unclear whether pre-existing human coronavirus (HCoV)-specific CD8+ T cells are converted to functionally competent T cells cross-reactive to SARS-CoV-2. Here, we identified the HLA-A24-high binding, immunodominant epitopes in SARS-CoV-2 spike region that can be recognized by seasonal coronavirus-specific CD8+ T …

The various agents include vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, diets & gluten. A proper …
