Abstract

Objective: TCR (T Cell Receptor) which is expressed on T cells is responsible for recognizing antigens presented by HLA molecules of the APCs (Antigen Presenting Cells) and initiation of the immune response. It has been reported that TACI (Transmembrane activator and calcium modulating cyclophilin ligand interactor) mediates the interaction of B cells and dendritic cells which are both responsible for the processing of T cells.
