It is generally understood that MHC class I ligands occur virtually on all nucleated cells? CD4+ and CD8+ T-cells being classified as nucleated cells must therefore, constitutively express MHC-I ligands? Do they express MHC-I ligand and indeed present peptides to other naive specific CD8+ T-cells that sample these cells?

Thank you for your time! But I was wondering if CD4+ and CD8+ T-cells possessed the ability to present peptide antigens (if they possessed MHC I ligands as they too are nucleated cells inasmuch as virtually any nucleated cells must have surface MHC I ligand 'happily' expressed!!!) to prime peptide specific naive CD8+ T-cells!
Hope now you are pretty clear with my question!
