Human T cells that express a T cell antigen receptor (TCR) containing γ-chain variable region 9 and δ-chain variable region 2 (Vγ9Vδ2) recognize phosphorylated prenyl metabolites as antigens in the presence of antigen-presenting cells but independently of major histocompatibility complex (MHC), the MHC class I–related molecule MR1 and antigen-presenting CD1… CONTINUE READING
