CD8+ T cell-mediated immune responses in West Nile virus (Sarafend strain) encephalitis are independent of gamma interferon
The flavivirus West Nile virus (WNV) can cause fatal encephalitis in humans and mice. It has recently been demonstrated, in an experimental model using WNV strain Sarafend and C57BL/6 mice, that both virus- and immune-mediated pathology is involved in WNV encephalitis, with CD8+ T cells being the dominant subpopulation of lymphocyte infiltrates in the brain. Here, the role of activated WNV-immune CD8+ T cells in mouse WNV encephalitis was investigated further. Passive transfer of WNV-immune...[Show more]
