    Superantigens (SAGs) crosslink MHC class II and TCR molecules, resulting in an overstimulation of T cells associated with human disease. SAGs interact with several different surfaces on MHC molecules, necessitating the formation of multiple distinct MHC-SAG-TCR ternary signaling complexes. Variability in SAG-TCR binding modes could also contribute to the structural heterogeneity of SAG-dependent signaling complexes. We report crystal structures of the streptococcal SAGs SpeA and SpeC in complex with their corresponding TCR beta chain ligands that reveal distinct TCR binding modes. The SpeC-TCR beta chain complex structure, coupled with the recently determined SpeC-HLA-DR2a complex structure, provides a model for a novel T cell signaling complex that precludes direct TCR-MHC interactions. Thus, highly efficient T cell activation may be achieved through structurally diverse strategies of TCR ligation.
