The principal function of class I molecules is the presentation of endogenous peptides to CD8þ T lymphocytes to induce protective immune responses.

The membrane distal domains of the HC form a peptide-binding groove, which consists of several strands of b-pleated sheets topped by two antiparallel walls of a helices. MHC class I molecules can bind many different peptides with restrictions with regard to the length and sequence of the peptide (55).
