Self-HLA-D-Region Products Restrict Human T-Lymphocyte Activation by Antigen
Macrophage-dependent antigen activation of T cells involves corecognition of antigen and products of the MHC immune-response (I) region.
T-cell help for B-cell antibody production involves recognition of the MHC I-region products expressed in the B cells.
T-cell cytotoxicity against virus-infected or chemically modified target cells, or target cells expressing minor histocompatibility antigens, involves corecognition of the MHC D- or K-region products.
