An X-ray Vision for Phosphoantigen Recognition.
Dustin ML., Scotet E., Olive D.
Invariant Vγ9Vδ2 T cells respond to "phosphoantigen" metabolites through binding to the B30.2 domain of butyrophilin BTN3A. Yang et al. (2019) use molecular dynamic simulations based on X-ray structures of distinct B30.2 domain dimers to identify the asymmetric dimer as most active, which has implications for the inside-out signaling mechanism.
