    Effective presentation of antigens by HLA class I molecules to CD8 HGNC+ T cells is required for viral elimination and generation of long-term immunological memory. In this study, we applied a single-cell, multi-omic technology to generate the first unified ex vivo characterization of the CD8 HGNC+ T cell response to SARS-CoV-2 across 4 major HLA class I alleles. We found that HLA genotype conditions key features of epitope specificity, TCR HGNC a/b sequence diversity, and the utilization of pre-existing SARS-CoV-2 reactive memory T MESHD cell pools. Single-cell transcriptomics revealed functionally diverse T cell phenotypes of SARS-CoV-2-reactive T cells, associated with both disease stage and epitope specificity. Our results show that HLA variations influence pre-existing immunity to SARS-CoV-2 and shape the immune repertoire upon subsequent viral exposure.

    T cells play pivotal roles in protective immunity against SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD. Follicular helper T (Tfh) cells mediate the production of antigen-specific antibodies; however, T cell receptor ( TCR HGNC) clonotypes used by SARS-CoV-2-specific Tfh cells have not been well characterized. Here, we first identified and crystallized public TCR HGNC of Tfh clonotypes that are shared and expanded in unhospitalized COVID-19 MESHD-recovered patients. These clonotypes preferentially recognized SARS-CoV-2 spike PROTEIN ( S) protein PROTEIN epitopes which are conserved among emerging SARS-CoV-2 variants. These clonotypes did not react with S proteins PROTEIN derived from common cold human coronaviruses, but cross-reacted with symbiotic bacteria, which might confer the publicity. Among SARS-CoV-2 S epitopes MESHD, S864-882, presented by frequent HLA-DR alleles, could activate multiple public Tfh clonotypes in COVID-19 MESHD-recovered patients. Furthermore, S864-882-loaded HLA tetramer preferentially bound to CD4+ T cells expressing CXCR5 HGNC. In this study, we identified and crystallized public TCR HGNC for SARS-CoV-2 that may contribute to the prevention of COVID-19 MESHD aggravation.
