Using an approach for isolating and characterizing peptide fractions that are intracellularly associated with major histocompatibility complex class I molecules, the major peptide recognized by cytotoxic T cells specific for the vesicular stomatitis virus has been isolated from the H-2Kb molecule of infected cells. This endogenously processed octapeptide is allele-specific as it does not bind to H-2Db molecules, and contains the core sequence of the epitope of the nucleocapsid protein of the vesicular stomatitis virus identified by testing with exogenous synthetic peptides.
