Cellular distribution of a mixed MHC class II heterodimer between DRα and a chimeric DOβ chain

Human MHC class II antigens include HLA-DR, -DQ, and -DP molecules that present antigens to CD4+ T cells, as well as the non-classical molecules HLA-DM and -DO. HLA-DM promotes peptide binding to class II molecules in endocytic compartments and HLA-DO, which is physically associated with HLA-DM in B lymphocytes, regulates HLA-DM function. Antibodies specific for the DOβ chain were ...

Evidence for superantigenic activity during murine malaria infection.

TCR V beta usage was examined in C57BL/6 mice infected with Plasmodium yoelii. In addition to a polyclonal T cell activation, already described, a superantigenic-like activity was observed during the acute infection. This superantigenic activity induces a preferential deletion without prior expansion of CD4+ and CD8+ T cells bearing the TCR V beta 9 segment. The superantigen could ...
