Preferred size of peptides that bind to H-2 Kb is sequence dependent.

Abstract

The identification of naturally processed viral peptides reveals that major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I epitopes are composed of nine or eight amino acid residues. Peptides eluted from H-2 Kb MHC class I molecules have been suggested, as a class, to be eight amino acid residues long. To assay for peptide-class I interactions, a stabilization… (More)
