We have evaluated the ability of a peptide-specific, I-Ak-restricted murine T hybridoma to bind its Ag in the presence and absence of class II MHC molecules. The restricting Ia molecule, when supplied as a plasma membrane preparation of I-Ak-expressing APC, specifically increases the avidity of the Ag-binding complex by lengthening its t1/2, without affecting the rate at which the complex is formed. Experiments using mutated I-Ak molecules indicate that the ability of a mutant Ia species todoi:10.4049/jimmunol.145.12.3979 fatcat:bjgesefsdzaw5akw7m3ukgaz3i
