Processing of bacterial antigens for presentation to class I and II MHC-restricted T lymphocytes.


Phagocytosis leads to the destruction of many bacteria and the proteolytic degradation of bacterial antigens within phagolysosomes to produce immunogenic peptides that bind to Class II major histocompatibility (MHC) molecules within vacuolar compartments. On the other hand, Class I MHC molecules bind cytosol-derived peptides, including peptides from… (More)
