  • Histocompatibility testing has evolved greatly with the technological advances in DNA based molecular typing and solid phase immunoassays, which enable detection of very small amounts of HLA specific antibodies within an individual. (wikipedia.org)

  • For the TCR to bind a peptide-MHC complex two conditions must be met. (bbk.ac.uk)
  • So, if a CTL can bind to a MHC-peptide complex on the cell surface, that cell is producing a peptide which is not native to the host. (bbk.ac.uk)

  • Recent findings have shown that the interplay between the immune and the nervous systems extends beyond the classical immune-mediated neuronal pathologies, such as multiple sclerosis , indicating immune dysregulation as a major factor in the etiopathogenesis of several psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders [ 4 - 6 ].

  • They wrote that it might be possible to expand their method to span the entire MHC, but this would require reconstructing the huge complex into several overlapping segments. (rxpgnews.com)
