Abstract

T cells can recognise foreign major histocompatibility complex (MHC) antigens by two distinct routes, either directly as intact molecules or indirectly as peptides after antigen processing. Danny Shoskes and Kathryn Wood review the evidence that indirect presentation of allopeptides may play a significant role in the events leading to the rejection or acceptance of allo- and xenografts.
