Term Information [More information on T cell receptor complex]

Accession
GO:0042101
Name
T cell receptor complex
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
T lymphocyte receptor complex, T-cell receptor complex, T-lymphocyte receptor complex, TCR complex, TCR
Definition
A protein complex that contains a disulfide-linked heterodimer of T cell receptor (TCR) chains, which are members of the immunoglobulin superfamily, and mediates antigen recognition, ultimately resulting in T cell activation. The TCR heterodimer is associated with the CD3 complex, which consists of the nonpolymorphic polypeptides gamma, delta, epsilon, zeta, and, in some cases, eta (an RNA splice variant of zeta) or Fc epsilon chains.
