N-terminally extended variants of final MHC-I-binding ligands are subjected to trimming by the ERresident aminopeptidase ERAP1, and potentially also by ERAP2/L-RAP. Peptides can bind to ER-resident chaperones such as gp96 or PDI and are removed from the ER through the Sec61 channel. Peptides of 8–10 amino acids are loaded onto MHC class I heavy chain (HC)/ b2-microglobulin (b2m) dimers that are tethered to TAP by means of the dedicated chaperone tapasin. Tapasin also recruits the oxidoreductase ERp57, which might isomerize the MHC-I a2 domain disulfide bridge during peptide loading.
