The rapid advancement of X-ray crystallography and nuclear magnetic resonance techniques in recent years has resulted in the solution of macromolecular structures at an unprecedented rate. This review aims at providing a comprehensive description of structures and folds related to the function of the immune system. Focus is placed on immunologically relevant proteins such as immunoreceptors and major histocompatibility complexes. Information is also provided regarding protein structure data banks.
