  • 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 cells have their TAP chain intact and the Trh4 peptide is only presented on cells with impaired TAP function through the classical MHC I pathway. This cell line over-expresses endogenous Trh4 and provides a key tool to help understand presentation of Trh4 to antigen recognition though other pathways.
