Oxidative stress impairs intracellular events involved in antigen processing and presentation to T cells.

Abstract

For T cells to recognize foreign antigens, the latter must be processed into peptides and associated to major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II molecules by antigen-presenting cells (APC). APCs frequently operate under stress conditions induced by tissue damage, antigens, or inflammatory reactions. We analyze the effects of oxidative stress on… (More)
