Abstract
CD1d tetramers loaded with alpha-galactosylceramide (alpha-GalCer) bind selectively to mouse invariant Valpha14 (Valpha14i) NKT cells and their human counterparts. Whereas tetramer binding strictly depends on the expression of a Valpha14-Jalpha18 chain in murine NKT cells, the associated beta-chain (typically expressing Vbeta8.2 or Vbeta7) appears not to influence tetramer binding. In this study, we describe novel alpha-GalCer-loaded mouse and human CD1d-IgG1 dimers, which revealed an unexpected influence of the TCR-beta chain on the avidity of CD1d:alpha-GalCer binding. A subset of Valpha14i NKT cells clearly discriminated alpha-GalCer bound to mouse or human CD1d on the basis of avidity differences conferred by the Vbeta domain of the TCR-beta chain, with Vbeta8.2 conferring higher avidity binding than Vbeta7.
