Dataset Description

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is clinically highly aggressive as a result of evolutionary dynamics induced by cross-talk between cancer cells and a heterogeneous group of immune cells in tumor microenvironment. The brain harbors limited numbers of immune cells with few lymphocytes and macrophages; thus, innate‐like lymphocytes, such as γδ T cells, have important roles in antitumor immunity. Here, we characterized GBM‐infiltrating γδ T cells, which may have roles in regulating the GBM tumor microenvironment and cancer cell gene expression. V(D)J repertoires of tumor‐infiltrating and blood‐circulating γδ T cells from four patients were analyzed by next-generation sequencing-based T-cell receptor (TCR) sequencing in addition to mutation and immune profiles in four GBM cases. In all tumor tissues, abundant innate and effector/memory lymphocytes were detected, accompanied by large numbers of tumor‐associated macrophages and closely located tumor‐infiltrating γδ T cells, which appear to have anti-tumor activity. The immune-related gene expression analysis using the ... (Show More)
