MHC Class MHC is broadly divided into class I and class II. There are also non-classical MHC molecules. In general, MHC class I molecules present peptides generated in the cytosol to CD8 T cells and MHC class II molecules present peptides to CD4 T cells.

String    0:*   
MHC Allele(s) Alleles are mutually exclusive forms of the same gene, occupying the same locus on homologous chromosomes within a species, and governing the same biochemical and developmental process. This field captures the list of MHC Allele(s) that epitope binds to.

String    0:*   
has MHC Chain 1 Captures information about MHC alpha chain.

Class  Chain  0:1   
has MHC Chain 2 Captures information about MHC beta chain or beta-2-microglobulin.
