Peptide-induced rescue of serologic epitopes on class I MHC molecules.


To monitor conformational changes in MHC class I structure induced by interaction with peptide or beta 2-microglobulin (beta 2-m), we have taken a serologic approach. Previous studies by us and others have defined circumstances wherein specific peptides can decrease serologic recognition of class I molecules. However, such blocking of serologic epitopes has… (More)
