Differential expression of inhibitory or activating CD94/NKG2 subtypes on MART-1-reactive T cells in vitiligo versus melanoma: a case report.

Selection and activation of T cells is tightly regulated by both antigen-specific receptors and co-receptors to ensure that responses to self antigens are largely avoided. By T cell receptor clonotypic mapping and staining with tetrameric HLA-peptide complexes, we demonstrate the presence of melanocyte differentiation antigen MART-1 specific T cells in the… CONTINUE READING
