The cytoplasmic tail of mammalian CD8α binds the kinase LCK in a zinc-dependent manner. In analogy with a previous study for humans (Kim et al., 2003) peptides were synthesized from rainbow trout CD8α and LCK. Surface plasmon resonance (SPR) analysis indicated that also in fish these molecules bind to each other in a zinc-dependent manner.
