Scavenger receptors and heat-shock protein-mediated antigen cross-presentation.

Abstract

Heat-shock proteins (HSPs) induce protective cytotoxic immune responses against tumour antigens. This property is related to their ability to bind to and to be internalized by DC (dendritic cells) before gaining access to the MHC class I processing pathway, a process called antigen cross-presentation. This process requires internalization of the antigen by… (More)
