MR1: An unconventional twist in the tail.
Phalora P., Klenerman P.
MR1 is a conserved molecule that binds microbial vitamin B metabolites and presents them to unconventional T cells. Lim and colleagues (2022. J. Cell Biol.https://doi.org/10.1083/jcb.202110125) uncover the role of AP2 in ensuring MR1 surface presentation, which relies on an atypical motif within the MR1 cytoplasmic tail.
