Re: Peptide binding to MHC molecule

... for serine would be probably OK volume-wise (-H is smaller the -CH2OH) but doesn’t have the possibility for making a hydrogen bond; substituting cystine for serine also is OK sterically (-CH2SH is about the same size as -CH2OH and the sulfur is slightly polar) but sulfur doesn’t make as good ...

Maybe you would get what is called ...
