CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) can recognize and kill target cells that express only a few cognate major histocompatibility complex class I-peptide (pMHC) complexes. To better understand the molecular basis of this sensitive recognition process, we studied dimeric pMHC complexes containing linkers of different lengths. Although dimers containing short(More)
Few studies are reported on the formation of reactive carbon-centred radical species from toxic xenobiotics. In this paper the formation of carbon radicals derived from the skin sensitizer linalyl hydroperoxide is described using radical trapping and EPR studies. Radical trapping used TMIO as scavenger agent and light, heat or TPP-Fe(3+) as radical(More)
In order to better understand the skin sensitization mechanism of allylic hydroperoxides, linalyl hydroperoxide (1) and several of its potential rearrangement products-epoxylinalool (2), epoxynerol (3), epoxygeraniol (4), and furan (5) and pyran (6) derivatives-were synthesized. The sensitizing properties of these molecules have been screened on mice using(More)
