AbstractCD160 is a T cell coinhibitory molecule that interacts with the herpes virus entry mediator (HVEM) on antigen-presenting cells to provide an inhibitory signal to T cells. To date, the structure of CD160 and its complex with HVEM are unknown. Here, we have identified the fragments of CD160 interacting with HVEM using ELISA tests, hydrogen/deuterium studies, affinity chromatography and mass spectrometry (MS). By combining hydrogen/deuterium exchange and mass spectrometry (HDX-MS) we obtained key information about the tertiary structure of CD160, predicting the 3D structure of the CD160–HVEM complex. Our results provide insights into the molecular architecture of this complex, serving as a useful basis for designing inhibitors for future immunotherapies.
