Abstract:Lipopeptidic formulations have been described as efficient activators of cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL). To better understand the pathway via which lipopeptides reach the MHC class I molecules we studied the intracellular processing and presentation of a measles virus-derived CTL epitope, to which a palmitoyl moiety was added synthetically. The palmitoyl group was conjugated to the N-terminus either directly or via a spacer sequence. The use of single or double fluorescent-labeled lipopeptides allowed the visualization of intracellular processing of these antigens using confocal microscopy. Our data indicate that the spacer composition influences internalization of the conjugate into the cell, proteasomal degradation, translocation into the ER by the transporter associated with antigen processing (TAP), and the intracellular trafficking of lipopeptides.
