Will a RAG knockout mouse have defective MHC class I proteins?
Please help with this question, its not in my textbook and I'm studying for an exam. If you can provide an explanation or a source that would be great.
Thanks so much!
Re: Will a RAG knockout mouse have defective MHC class I proteins?
RAG KO mice will express MHC class I normally because virtually all cells express class I. Deletion of RAG1/2 of course disrupt B and T cell development, because it blocks Immunoglobulin and TCR recombination.
However, because RAG mice will lack functional CD8 T cells, the MHC classI expressed by cells will not be recognized by the immune system.
