The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecules expressed at the cell surface are associated with a large number of different peptides so that the density of a given MHC-peptide complex is relatively low. Here we describe the properties of MHC class I molecules genetically attached to a single antigenic peptide. Cells expressing these fusion(More)
Light satellite DNA components present in species belonging to the genus Mus and to related murids were studied using the Southern blot technique. The results show species variations in both the amount and periodic structure of the repeating units, which suggests that families of related higher-order repeats developed in a common ancestor and were then(More)
Chronic infection perturbs immune homeostasis. While prior studies have reported dysregulation of effector and memory cells, little is known about the effects on naïve T cell populations. We performed a cross-sectional study of chronic hepatitis C (cHCV) patients using tetramer-associated magnetic enrichment to study antigen-specific inexperienced CD8(+) T(More)
