AbstractThe epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) supports the escape of malignant cells from immunosurveillance by inhibiting the activation of signal transducer and activator of transcription 1 (STAT1) while promoting that of STAT3. We have recently demonstrated that protein tyrosine phosphatase, non-receptor type 11 (PTNP11, best known as SHP2), a phosphatase that operates downstream of EGFR, is responsible for the dephosphorylation of active STAT1 and for the inhibition of the antigen-processing machinery (APM), hence favoring tumor immunoescape. Thus, EGFR signaling may skew the tumor microenvironment to suppress cellular immune responses.
