  • Description: This cell line provides a model to help to understand T-cell recognition through Trh4 expression. ER-resident ceramide synthase Trh4 is a prototypic example of a neo-antigen selectively presented by cells through various pathways. RMA-S lymphoma cells are TAP-deficient on account of an incomplete TAP2 chain, whereas RMA cells have their TAP chain intact.The Trh4 peptide is only presented on cells with impaired TAP function through the classical MHC I pathway. This cell line presents said Trh4 and helps to characterise this pathway.
