Comprehensive analysis of MHC ligands in clinical material by immunoaffinity-mass spectrometry



Comprehensive analysis of MHC ligands in clinical material by immunoaffinity-mass spectrometry



Methods in Molecular Biology 1023: 203-218



Major histocompatibility complexes (MHC) are expressed on antigen-presenting cells (APC) that display peptide antigens. This is a crucial step to activate a T-cell response. Since immunogenic ligand of MHC is closely related with autoimmunity, inflammatory diseases, and cancer, comprehensive analysis of MHC ligands (the so-called Ligandome) is essential to unveil disease pathogenesis. Recently, immunotherapies such as vaccination have been focused on as new therapies of cancer, HIV, and infectious diseases. Therefore, the importance of comprehensive analysis of MHC ligands is increasing. Mass spectrometry has been the core technology of ligand identification since the 1990s. The sensitivity of mass spectrometers has been improved dramatically in recent years; thus, it enables to identify MHC ligands in clinical materials. This chapter lays out the workflow of MHC ligand identification in clinical materials, especially human bronchoalveolar (BAL) cells. MHC-ligand complexes are enriched by immunoaffinity extraction and captured ligand peptides are identified by LC-MS/MS. MHC class II ligand in BAL cells is described in this text; however, this approach is applicable to MHC class I and other clinical materials such as tissues.
