Activation of mouse iNKT hybridomas 1. Individual amino acid mutations in CD1d are indicated. Experiment was performed twice, while measuring each condition in triplicate. In contrast to earlier studies we could now show that cattle express CD1d protein that is able to traffic to the cell surface for antigen display .
In vitro binding studies indicated that glycolipids that exceed the alkyl chain length of C 18 do not bind to boCD1d. The importance of the Asp sidechain has further been demonstrated by mutagenesis studies using mouse CD1d. While mouse and human iNKT cells are evolutionary conserved and generally respond to the same antigens, this is not true for the more recently identified microbial antigens.
Therefore, it is possible that bovine pathogens differ in their lipid composition compared to human and mouse pathogens and as a result cattle have evolved lipid-reactive and boCD1d-restricted T cells that are likely different from human or mouse iNKT cells. Therefore, boCD1d cannot present the same range of antigen as human and mouse CD1d can. The only other species for which CD1 crystal structures are available is chicken. Both chicken ch CD and chCD have been crystallized with endogenously bound lipids and the structures reveal two extremes in terms of size and shape of the hydrophobic binding groove, which dictates the type of lipids that can be presented by CD1  , .
While chCD has a primitive single pore suitable for binding of single chain lipids or fatty acids  , chCD has an elaborate binding groove suitable to accommodate dual and possibly tri-acylated lipids .
Thus changes in size and shape of the binding groove likely reflect the encounter with different lipid structures from different pathogens during the course of CD1 evolution. It is conceivable that this allows the accommodation of small acyl chain modifications, such as hydroxyl or methyl groups, which are found in different lipids or fatty acids such as tuberculostearic acid. Furthermore, lack of human T cell activation by bovine CD1 has also been seen for another bovine CD1 isotype, boCD1b3, which is unable to activate the human CD1b-restricted T cell line LDN5 when presenting glucose monomycolate  , indicating that lipid reactive T cells in cattle differ from that of mouse and man.

Abstract NKT cells play important roles in immune surveillance. Introduction CD1 is a family of antigen-presenting molecules that is structurally related to major histocompatibility class I MHC I molecules, but binds and presents lipids, glycolipids and lipopeptides, rather than peptides .
