Database Name: CT DATABASE
DataBase Category: Diseases

The Cancer Testis (CT) Antigens are proteins normally expressed only in the human germ line but that are also present in a significant subset of malignant tumors. The practical importance of these proteins is that due to their restricted expression pattern they are frequently recognized by the immune system of cancer patients. Moreover, this antigenicity has raised the possibility of their being used as vaccines to actively stimulate immune responses in order to combat tumor growth. As a result worldwide research into many aspects of CT antigens is rapidly growing prompting the construction of this database as a resource for investigators involved in this area.
