Histocompatibility Antigens and the T-Cell Repertoire
Considering the numerous reviews dealing with the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) and its influence on T cells, it is not tempting to write yet another article on the subject. The experimental data that I am going to summarize are in principle compatible with several theoretical models. I therefore shall not attempt to discriminate among them. Our own view has been stated before (von Boehmer et al., 1978b).
