Both the magnitude and function of vaccine-induced HIV-specific CD8 + CTLs are likely to be important in the outcome of infection. We hypothesized that rapid cytolysis by CTLs may facilitate control of viral challenge. Release kinetics of the cytolytic effector molecules granzyme B and perforin, as well as the expression of the degranulation marker CD107a and IFN-γ were simultaneously studied in SIV Gag164-172 KP9-specific CD8+ T cells from Mane-A*10+ pigtail macaques. Macaques were vaccinated...[Show more]
