A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11834490B2) discloses a variant CD112 polypeptide that includes an IgV domain or both an IgV domain and an IgC domain. The variant CD112 polypeptide contains specific amino acid substitutions, such as A112V or A112I, compared to the unmodified CD112 sequence. This variant CD112 polypeptide exhibits at least 85% sequence identity to the original sequence and shows increased binding affinity to the ectodomain of TIGIT compared to the unmodified CD112.

Furthermore, the patent claims cover various modifications and compositions of the variant CD112 polypeptide, including those with up to 10 amino acid modifications, sequences with higher sequence identity percentages, and specific amino acid substitutions. The patent also extends to immunomodulatory proteins and conjugates incorporating the variant CD112 polypeptide, methods of producing these proteins, engineering cells expressing the polypeptide, pharmaceutical compositions containing the variant CD112 polypeptide, and methods of modulating immune responses in subjects using the disclosed compositions. Overall, the patent provides a comprehensive framework for utilizing the variant CD112 polypeptide and related proteins in immunomodulation and therapeutic interventions.
