335/9/2015 Assigned Reading l Chapter: 11 pp 264-283 l Janis Kuby’s Immunology 3rd Ed
445/9/2015 Content Outline l Early Studies l Structure of T cell Receptors l TCR Genes l Cloning l TCR multi gene families l T Cell Receptor Complex l TCR-Peptide-MHC Complex l Associative recognition hypothesis l Formation of ternary complex l Alloreactivity of T Cells
555/9/2015 Early Studies l self MHC restriction l isolation of t cell receptors
665/9/2015 Independent vs Associative Recognition by T cells
995/9/2015 TCR: Structure l Hetero dimer – 95% Alpha: Beta –2-5% Gamma: Delta l Variable Domains –3 HVR l Constant Domains l Transmembrane region (Tm) –~20 AA l Cytoplasmic Tail (CT) –5-12 amino acids
25 5/9/2015 Key Terms l CD2, CD4, CD8, CD28, CD54, CD58, integrins, T cell receptors, l alpha beta TCR, gamma delta TCR, Transcription factor l NF-KB
26 5/9/2015 Key Concepts l Draw the structure of the T Cell Receptor (TCR) l Compare and constrast the structure of TCR with B cell receptor l Draw a diagram of the T cell receptor gene organization
27 5/9/2015 l Describe the stragetgies for diversification of T Cell Receptors l Describe how a T cell Receptor recognizes an antigen l Describe the TCR-Antigen-MHC complex
29 5/9/2015 l Hedrick and Davis used the technique of subtractive hybridization to isolate cDNA clones encoding for the T cell receptor. –Briefly explain the method of subtractive hybridization. –State why this method was so important in the characterization of the TCR.
30 5/9/2015 l What does it mean to say that TCRs belong to the Ig supergene family? l Briefly describe the heterodimeric structure of the TCR. l TCR genes use the same strategies as antibody genes to develop receptor diversity; however, TCR genes do not exhibit somatic hypermutation. Why? l The TCR is closely assoicated with another surface protein complex. What is its name and function?
31 5/9/2015 l Describe the three way complex that occurs during antigenic recognition by T cells. l T cells can react only with protein fragments. –What is this process called? – How does it occur? l Which pathway leads to antigen interaction with MHC-I molecules? l Which pathway leads to interaction with MHC-II molecules?
32 5/9/2015 l What are accessory molecules? –Give some examples. –Briefly discuss how they may be involved in antigen recognition by T cells.
