A recently filed patent (Publication Number: US20230302053A1) describes a method for detecting the integration of a nucleic acid encoding a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) into a TRAC locus. The method involves preparing a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) mixture with genomic DNAs obtained from T cells that have been introduced with the CAR-encoding nucleic acid. The PCR mixture also includes a DNA polymerase, a forward primer, and a reverse primer. The forward primer has the nucleotide sequence AGAAGGATAAGATGGCGGAGG, and the reverse primer has the nucleotide sequence GCTTTCTGGCGTCCTTAGAA.

The method then proceeds with performing a PCR reaction in the mixture and detecting the generation of PCR products. The presence of PCR products indicates the integration of the CAR-encoding nucleic acid into the TRAC locus. In one embodiment, the detection of PCR products is performed using a probe with the nucleotide sequence TCTACCCTCTCATGGCCTAGAAGG.

The PCR reaction includes incubating the mixture at 95°C for 10 minutes, followed by 40 cycles of reactions to generate PCR products. Each cycle consists of conditions at 90°C for 30 seconds, 59°C for 1 minute, and 72°C for 3 minutes. The PCR product produced is then incubated at 98°C for 10 minutes.

The patent also describes a kit for detecting the integration of the CAR-encoding nucleic acid into the TRAC locus. The kit includes a DNA polymerase, a forward primer with the nucleotide sequence AGAAGGATAAGATGGCGGAGG, and a reverse primer with the nucleotide sequence GCTTTCTGGCGTCCTTAGAA. Additionally, the kit may include a probe with the nucleotide sequence TCTACCCTCTCATGGCCTAGAAGG, as well as control primers and a control probe.

The method and kit described in the patent can be used to detect the integration of CAR-encoding nucleic acid into the TRAC locus. This information is valuable in the field of genetic engineering and immunotherapy, as it allows researchers to monitor and assess the success of gene editing and CAR-T cell therapies. The method and kit provide a reliable and efficient way to detect this integration, enabling further advancements in the development and application of CAR-T cell therapies.
