Thierry Boon et al. developed a method to overcome this limitation by cloning the genes encoding antigens recognized by tumor-specific CTL clones (49). This technique is based on two crucial processes. The first is to transfect a complementary DNA library derived from the tumor into either antigen loss variants of the same tumor or Cos cells together with genes encoding the appropriate MHC class I. The second was to identify the antigen in CTL stimulation assays.
