different HLA genes, that individual will have about ____
different class I and II MHC molecules on the surface of
certain of their lymphoid cells.
a) 3
b) 6
c) 9
d) 12
e) 15

7.1) Superantigens such as staphylococcal enterotoxins

bind to certain TCR ____ chains and to MHC class II
molecules. MHC binding does not involve the peptide
groove. T cells can then release extremely high levels of
cytokines, which lead to toxic shock syndrome (TSS)
when they appear in the blood.
a) Alpha
b) Beta
c) Delta
d) Gamma
