Abstract

Direct visualization and quantification of antigen-specific T cells using major histocompatibility complex (MHC)/peptide tetramer technology offers a powerful means to study specific T cell populations of interest. In combination with functional assays, this technology has already provided many new insights into several long-standing immunological concepts in basic science as well as clinical settings.
