Antigenic processing involves the generation of peptides from an intact antigen. This process depends on the route of entry of the antigen. If the antigen is from a virus for example and is thus located within the cytosol, the proteasome, a multicatalytic protease complex of 28 ...

Solution Summary

Antigenic processing is explained. The processing at the molecular levels are examined for antigen presentations.
