Peptide selection by MHC class I molecules [Immunology and Inflammation]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Fri, 01/23/2015 - 14:07
MHC class I molecules present a variable but limited repertoire of antigenic peptides for T-cell recognition. Understanding how peptide selection is achieved requires mechanistic insights into the interactions between the MHC I and candidate peptides. We find that, at first encounter, MHC I H-2Kb considers a wide range of peptides,...

γδ T cells are unconventional T cells recognizing antigens via their γδ T-cell receptor (TCR) in a way that is fundamentally different from conventional αβ T cells. γδ T cells usually are divided into subsets according the type of Vγ and/or Vδ chain they express in their TCR. T cells...

IP6K2 promotes cell invasion and tumor metastasis [Cell Biology]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Fri, 01/23/2015 - 14:07
The inositol pyrophosphates, molecular messengers containing an energetic pyrophosphate bond, impact a wide range of biologic processes. They are generated primarily by a family of three inositol hexakisphosphate kinases (IP6Ks), the principal product of which is diphosphoinositol pentakisphosphate (IP7). We report that IP6K2, via IP7 synthesis, is a major mediator...
