Immunohistochemical detection of increased levels of protein-associated nitrotyrosine has become widely used as a surrogate marker of in situ inflammation. However, the potential consequences of protein-associated nitrotyrosine formation in terms of cellular immune recognition has received surprisingly little attention. Using a well-defined I-E(K)-restricted epitope of pigeon cytochrome c, we previously demonstrated that conversion of a single tyrosine residue to nitrotyrosine can have a… CONTINUE READING
