To understand the mechanism by which peptide antigens are processed and presented to T cells, we examined the T-cell response to the 13-amino-acid peptide alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH). To determine the fine specificity of T-cell recognition, T cells specific for alpha-MSH, and genetically restricted by I-Ab/d, were challenged with(More)
