MHC class I

The differentiation state of the Schwann cell progenitor drives phenotypic variation between two contagious cancers

Contagious cancers are a rare pathogenic phenomenon in which cancer cells gain the ability to spread between genetically distinct hosts. Nine examples have been identified across marine bivalves, dogs and Tasmanian devils, but the Tasmanian devil is …

Plasticity of empty major histocompatibility complex class I molecules determines peptide-selector function

Major histocompatibility complex class I (MHC I) proteins provide protection from intracellular pathogens and cancer via each of a cell's MHC I molecules binding and presenting a peptide to cytotoxic T lymphocytes. MHC I genes are highly polymorphic …
