Autophagy proteins stabilize pathogen-containing phagosomes for prolonged MHC II antigen processing.

Antigen preservation for presentation is a hallmark of potent antigen-presenting cells. In this paper, we report that in human macrophages and dendrit...

Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) Class I and MHC Class II Proteins: Conformational Plasticity in Antigen Presentation.
Antigen presentation by major histocompatibility complex (MHC) proteins is essential for adaptive immunity. Prior to presentation, peptides need to be generated from proteins that are either produced by the cell's own translational machinery or that

Toward a Network Model of MHC Class II-Restricted Antigen Processing.
The standard model of Major Histocompatibility Complex class II (MHCII)-restricted antigen processing depicts a straightforward, linear pathway: internalized antigens are converted into peptides that load in a chaperone dependent manner onto nascent

Variations in MHC Class II Antigen Processing and Presentation in Health and Disease.
MHC class II (MHC-II) molecules are critical in the control of many immune responses. They are also involved in most autoimmune diseases and other pathologies. Here, we describe the biology of MHC-II and MHC-II variations that affect immune responses

The ins and outs of MHC class II-mediated antigen processing and presentation.
Antigenic peptide-loaded MHC class II molecules (peptide-MHC class II) are constitutively expressed on the surface of professional antigen-presenting cells (APCs), including dendritic cells, B cells, macrophages and thymic epithelial cells, and are p

Early BCR Events and Antigen Capture, Processing, and Loading on MHC Class II on B Cells.
B cells are efficient antigen-presenting cells (APCs), relying on antigen uptake through the B cell receptor (BCR). The mechanism of antigen recognition remains a topic of debate; while the prevalent view holds that antigens need to be multivalent fo

ATGs help MHC class II, but inhibit MHC class I antigen presentation.
We have recently shown that the LC3/Atg8 lipidation machinery of macroautophagy is involved in the internalization of MHC class I molecules. Decreased internalization in the absence of ATG5 or ATG7 leads to MHC class I surface stabilization on dendri

Giving CD4+ T cells the slip: viral interference with MHC class II-restricted antigen processing and presentation.
Activation of CD4+ T cells through interactions with peptides bound to Major Histocompatibility Complex Class II (MHC-II) molecules is a crucial step in clearance of most pathogens. Consequently, many viruses have evolved ways of blocking this aspect

Evidence for Direct Inhibition of MHC-Restricted Antigen Processing by Dexamethasone.
Dexamethasone (Dex) was shown to inhibit the differentiation, maturation, and antigen-presenting function of dendritic cells (DC) when added during DC generation or maturation stages. Here, we examined the direct effects of Dex on MHC-restricted anti

NADPH oxidase modifies patterns of MHC class II-restricted epitopic repertoires through redox control of antigen processing.
The chemistries within phagosomes of APCs mediate microbial destruction as well as generate peptides for presentation on MHC class II. The antimicrobial effector NADPH oxidase (NOX2), which generates superoxide within maturing phagosomes, has also be

Polyubiquitination of lysine-48 is an essential but indirect signal for MHC class I antigen processing.
Peptides presented on major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecules are generated via cytosolic proteolysis. However, the nature of the endogenous peptide precursors and the intracellular processing steps preceding protein degradation rema
