CD8+ T lymphocytes recognize antigens as short, MHC class I-associated peptides derived by processing of cytoplasmic proteins. The transporter associated with antigen processing translocates peptides from the cytosol into the ER lumen, where they bind to the nascent class I molecules. To date, the precise location of the class I-TAP interaction site remains(More)
A critical molecular interaction during assembly of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecules takes place between the heavy chain and the transporter-associated with antigen-processing (TAP) complex. The recent mapping of regions of the heavy chain involved in the binding to TAP suggests a complex molecular interaction essential for the(More)
