    The success of vaccination is directly or indirectly based on the specificity of antigen recognition by T lymphocytes, their efficient activation and expansion, and the generation of vaccine-specific effector and memory cells. These traits are largely dependent on the correct assembly and...

  • T cell memory: A role for MHC class II molecules on T cells? Zola, Heddy // Immunology & Cell Biology;Oct1992, Vol. 70 Issue 5, p337 

    A proportion of human T cells express MHC class II molecules. In this paper, the hypothesis is advanced that these MHC class II molecules present antigenic peptides acquired from interaction with other antigen-presenting cells (e.g. during the primary response) and can therefore interact in a...

    While most studies of T lymphocytes have focused on T cells reactive to complexes of peptide and major histocompatibility complex (MHC) proteins, many other types of T cells do not fit this paradigm. These include CD1-restricted T cells, MR1-restricted mucosal associated invariant T cells (MAIT...

  • Twenty years into the saga of MHC-restriction. Ada, Gordon // Immunology & Cell Biology;Dec1994, Vol. 72 Issue 6, p447 

    Twenty years ago, the terms 'altered self and 'H-2 restriction', later modified to 'MHC restriction', were coined to describe the finding by Peter Doherty and Rolf Zinkernagel that murine cytotoxic T cells (CTL) would lyse virus-infected target cells only if effector and target cells were H-2...

  • Nondeletional pathways for the development of autoreactive thymocytes. Bendelac, Albert // Nature Immunology;Jun2004, Vol. 5 Issue 6, p557 

    For some time, T cell receptor αβ (TCRαβ) signaling during thymocyte development was thought to induce one of three fates—negative selection to remove autoreactive cells, positive selection to enrich for host major histocompatibility complex (MHC)-restricted cells, and, in the...

    Antigen-specific immunity requires regulated trafficking of T cells in and out of diverse tissues in order to orchestrate lymphocyte development, immune surveillance, responses, and memory. The endothelium serves as a unique barrier, as well as a sentinel, between the blood and the tissues, and...

    Glycolipids presented by the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I homolog CD1d are recognized by natural killer T cells (NKT cells) characterized by either a semi-invariant T cell antigen receptor (TCR) repertoire (type I NKT cells or iNKT cells) or a relatively variable TCR repertoire...

    The strength with which complexes of self peptide and major histocompatibility complex (MHC) proteins are recognized by the T cell antigen receptor (TCR) dictates the homeostasis of naive CD8+ T cells, but its effect on reactivity to foreign antigens is controversial. As expression of the...
