Objective Cancer immunotherapy is attractive for antigen-specific T cell-mediated antitumor therapy, especially in induction of cytotoxic T lymphocytes(CTL). In this report, we evaluated insulin-like growth factor 2 mRNA-binding protein 3(IGF2P3) restricted epitope-induced cytotoxic T lymphocytes effects in human lung cancer cells.   Methods The human leukocyte antigen A2(HLA-A2) restricted epitope peptides of IGF2P3 were selected by NetCTL 1.2, SYFPEITHI and IEDB software prediction. The binding affinity of the peptides to HLA-A02 molecules was evaluated by T2A2 cells binding assay. enzyme-linked immunosport(ELISPOT) assay was used to investigate the ability of the peptide to induce specific restricted cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) and release of interferon γ(IFN-γ). The ability of the peptides to induce T cell response was investigated by carboxyfluorescein succinimidyl amino ester(CFSE) fluorescent staining.   Results The candidate peptide P143, P199, P280, P409 and P515 showed moderate affinity toward HLA-A2 molecule. ELISPOT assay showed P409, P515 were able to induce specific CTL and higher levels of IFN-γ were released. The CTL induced by P409, P515 lysed target cells.  Conclusion P409 and P515 have the potential for adoptive immunotherapy and can be used as candidate epitopes for new anti-tumor polypeptide immunotherapy vaccine. P409 and P515 can be used in peptide-based immunotherapy for lung cancer.
