  • Major histocompatibility complex is responsible for stimulating the rejection of tissue MHC is set of genes that code for cell surface glycoproteins.
  • These glycoproteins mark the body cells as self and are unique for each individuals.
  • The glycoprotein present on cell membrane of donated tissue are identified as Non self by T-cells.
  • The cell mediated immune reaction against the MHC antigens that is host versus graft reaction is the main mechanism of acute rejection.
