Disruption of SIRT7 Increases the Efficacy of Checkpoint Inhibitor via MEF2D Regulation of PD-L1 in Hepatocellular Carcinoma Cells

Immune checkpoint inhibitors have some efficacy in treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Programmed cell death 1 ligand 1 (PD-L1), expressed on some cancer cells, binds to the receptor programmed cell death 1 (PDCD1, also called PD1) on T cells to prevent their proliferation and reduce the antigen-tumor immune response. Immune cells that infiltrate some types of HCCs secrete interferon gamma (IFNG). Some HCC cells express myocyte enhancer factor 2D (MEF2D), which has been associated with shorter survival times of patients.
