Upon peptide binding the class I MHC molecule releases from the peptide loading complex (PLC) and clusters at ER exit sites and is finally exported to the cell surface.
MHC I molecules bound to low-affinity peptides are not transferred to the cell surface and are instead cycled back to ER. They can proceed to the cell surface only when they become bound to high-affinity peptide (Howe et al. 2009, Garstka et al. 2007). Calreticulin binds to these low-affinity peptide bound class I molecules and mediate the retrieval from golgi apparatus to ER and for effcient presentation of a model antigen (Howe et al. 2009).
