major histocompatibility complex)
What is the role of MHC?
Once a pathogen is engulfed and broken down into peptides the MHC is activated and results in antigen presentation so the T-cell can recognize infected cells

antigen presenting cell
describe the general process of tissue injury due to autoimmune disease
The individual has self-reactive lymphocytes which binds to their own cells activating APC's thus causing an increase of lymphocytes into tissue which leads to tissue injury
