That anti-MHC alloreThe multiple binary complex model (Figure 2) proposes sponses are analogous to antigen responses in that they are mediated by T cells specific for peptide-MHC complexes. In this case the peptide a naturally processed peptide derived from a serum or cellular protein and the MHC molecule allogeneic. This would account for thehigh frequencies of anti-MHC alloreactive cells, becauseof the wide diversityof different naturally processed peptides displayed by cell-surface MHC molecules.
