The mechanisms that contribute to the development of an alloresponse and the responses to minor histocorupatibility complex (mHC) molecules are the subjects of this chapter. In addition, strategies to subvertthe mechanisms of self-tolerance in order to induce tolerance to transplanted tissues will be discussed. The first challenge in accounting for the strength of anti-MHC alloresponses is to explain the uniquely high frequencies of alloreactive precursor T cells. mentioned above, T cells recognize peptide antigen when it is presentedin association with self (syngeneic) MHC molecules owing to the nature of T-cell selection that occurs during T-cell developnlentin the thymus [3].
