The recognition of allo-MHC and associated peptides on the surface of
graft-derived APC by host T cells (direct pathway allorecognition) plays
an important role in acute rejection after organ transplantation.
However, the status of the direct pathway T cells in stable long term
transplants remains unclear. To
