Translocation of long peptides by transporters associated with antigen processing (TAP).

Abstract

The major histocompatibility complex (MHC)-encoded transporters associated with antigen processing (TAP) translocate peptides from the cytosol into the lumen of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) where they associate with MHC class I molecules. The length of class I-binding peptides is usually 8-11 amino acids, but examples of significantly longer peptides have… (More)
