To study the question when and where self peptides become associated with major histocompatibility complex class II molecules for tolerance induction, we recently developed a system in which the intracellular site(s) of antigen expression could be manipulated using gene cloning techniques. We previously constructed a truncated IgGa gene comprising a variable (V) domain and the CH3 domain (not including the membrane exons) from the IgG2ab heavy (H) chain. The secreted form of the V-CH3b protei...Expand abstract

Class II-restricted IgG2ab-specific T cells recognize a signal-minus form of the V-CH3b antigen.
