The human invariant chain (I gamma) of class II histocompatibility antigens spans the membrane of the endoplasmic reticulum once. It exposes a small amino-terminal domain on the cytoplasmic side and a carboxy-terminal, glycosylated domain on the exoplasmic side of the membrane. When the exoplasmic domain of I gamma is replaced by the cytoplasmic protein chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT), CAT becomes the exoplasmic, glycosylated domain of the resulting membrane protein I gamma CAT… CONTINUE READING
