Cytotoxic T cells recognize viral proteins as peptide fragments which are produced in the cytosol and transported on major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I proteins to the cell surface. Viral peptides that meet the stringent binding characteristics of class I proteins are generated by the 20S proteasome. The interferon (IFN)-gamma-inducible activator of the 20S proteasome, PA28, strongly influences the proteasomal cleavage pattern in vitro. This led us to investigate whether changes in… CONTINUE READING
