It's the Peptide-MHC Affinity, Stupid

Thomas Kammertoens, Thomas Blankenstein
2013 Cancer Cell  
Conversely, cancer vaccines targeting self-TA face the difficulty of not only relying on T cells, which survived central tolerance, but also targeting epitopes of low pMHC affinity.  ...  Peptides predicted with high affinity have rarely been described as T cell epitopes.  ...  On the one hand, this might be related to our still limited ability  ...
