Identification of Immunogenic MHC Class II Tyrosinase-Derived Peptides Using HLA-DR1 and HLA-DR4 Transgenic Mice
Abstract:The immunogenicity of “novel” MART-1 and Tyrosinase class-II peptides was assessed in transgenic mice. Tyrosinase141-161 peptide was found to be immunogenic and endogenously processed in the HLA-DRβ1*0101 and HLADR β1*0401 transgenic mice with peptide specific production of IFNγ or IL-5 respectively. The MART-129-43 peptide was only found immunogenic in HLA-DRβ1*0101 mice.

- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
