Abstract

The elucidation of the complete peptide-binding domains of the highly polymorphic shark MHC class I genes offered us an opportunity to examine the characteristics of their predicted protein products in the light of the latest advance in the structural studies of the MHC class I molecules. The results suggest that the fundamental characteristics in the T-cell recognition of the MHC class I molecule/peptide complex are expected to have been established at the early stage of the vertebrate evolution. The elucidation of the typical classical class I molecules from fishes and also of some MHC class I-related molecules may help us to explore the common denominator of the ancient class I molecules.
