The peptide-binding specificity of HLA-A*3001 demonstrates membership of the HLA-A3 supertype


Human leukocyte antigen class I (HLA-I) molecules are highly polymorphic peptide receptors, which select and present endogenously derived peptide epitopes to CD8+ cytotoxic T cells (CTL). The specificity of the HLA-I system is an important component of the overall specificity of the CTL immune system. Unfortunately, the large and rapidly increasing number… (More)
