Summary: Although antigen-specific T cells are vital to adaptive immune responses, they also contribute to a variety of diseases. In this work the authors examined the possibility of selectively removing epitope-specific T cells while preserving immune function. Biotinylated MHC class I monomers were combined with streptavidin-ZAP (Cat. #IT-27) and used in a mouse transferable T-cell-dependent neurological disease model. This technique resulted in a dramatic reduction in targeted antigen specific T cells with no observable bystander toxicity.
