Self-antigens can stimulate the immune response to cancer cells. Image shows a healthy cell on the far right and 3 cancer cells. One with mutations that create proteins with neo-antigens (new antigens), one with mutations that cause excessive production of a protein or the appearance of a protein at the cell surface, and one with biochemical changes that alter the modifications on proteins.
