CEF MHC Class 1 Plus consists of 32 MHC-1– specific peptides of 8–12 aa in length. These sequences were derived from cytomegalovirus (HCMV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), and influenza virus and have been shown to elicit interferon-gamma release from CD8

.
In vitro
stimulation of antigen-specific T cells with PepTivator Peptide Pools causes the secretion of effector cytokines and the up-regulation of activation markers, which then allow the detection and isolation of antigen-specific T cells.

Downstream applications

  • PepTivator CEF MHC Class 1 Plus is recommended as a peptide-specific positve control for the detection of CD8+ T cells in human PBMC. This peptide set is used by the NIH. For more information refer to the NIH AIDS Research and Reference Reagent Program.
