Abstract

Specific T cell responses to a variety of self and microbial lipids depend on proper assembly and intracellular trafficking of CD1 molecules that intersect with and load processed lipid antigens. These pathways involve unique membrane trafficking and chaperones that are distinct from those utilized for major histocompatibility complex (MHC)-mediated presentation of peptide antigens, and thus define unique lipid antigen presentation pathways. Furthermore, recent studies have identified components of lipid metabolism that participate in lipid delivery, uptake, processing and loading onto CD1 molecules. Defects in these pathways result in impaired T cell development and function, underscoring their critical role in the lipid-specific T cell immune responses. © Springer-Verlag 2007.
