Explores the antigen-recognition properties of murine gamma/delta T cells. Structural differences between murine T10/T22 ligands of peripheral gamma/delta T cells and classical major histocompatibility complex class I molecules; Possible contact sites of the G8 T cell receptor with T10; Increased T10/T22 surface expression following cellular activation.
