Influence of translation efficiency of homologous viral proteins on the endogenous presentation of CD8+ T cell epitopes
A significant proportion of endogenously processed CD8+ T cell epitopes are derived from newly synthesized proteins and rapidly degrading polypeptides (RDPs). It has been hypothesized that the generation of rapidly degrading polypeptides and CD8+ T cell epitopes from these RDP precursors may be influenced by the efficiency of protein translation. Here we address this hypothesis by using the Epstein-Barr virus-encoded nuclear antigen 1 protein (EBNA1), with or without its internal...[Show more]
