(warning) 11:00 Sebastian giving a virtual talk in Dresden (Michele Solimena):

Empty HLA/MHC class I molecules: trafficking, cluster formation, and their use in tumor immunotherapy

MHC class I molecules present intracellular peptides to the T cells of the immune system. They are excellent model systems for protein folding ligand selection, and intracellular transport. I will present work on the ER-Golgi transport of the peptide-free form of class I molecules, some new data on the formation of MHC class I clusters at the cell surface, and also how these investigations have led us to design a disulfide-stabilized form of class I that can be used to make superior recombinant MHC class I tetramers to detect, isolate, and stimulate tumor-reactive T cells in an antigen-specific manner.
