The TCR is virtually identical to one Fab antibody arm
Recognize antigenic peptide fragments of microbial proteins
The peptide fragments must be bound to a major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecule
MHC class I molecules are for presenting peptide antigens from intracellular microbes (i.e., infected cell) and target those cells for destruction by Tc cells
MHC class II molecules are for presenting peptide antigens from extracellular microbes (i.e., NOT infected cell) and presenting those peptides to Th cells, which secrete cytokines that mediate the local immune response
