Abstract

Cells of higher vertebrates have evolved mechanisms that allow a sample of their intracellular contents to be available for surveillance by the immune system. This display of intracellular material is in the form of peptides bound to cell surface major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecules. In this review, John Monaco presents a model of the mechanisms by which this takes place, based on the recent identification of a number of new genes in the MHC.
