I describe the molecules involved in the antigen presentation and processing pathways.

Solution Preview

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 ...
