Antigen-specific activation thresholds of CD8+ T cells are independent of IFN-I-mediated partial lymphocyte activation
Type-I IFN (IFN-I) are highly pleiotropic cytokines known to modulate immune responses and play an early central role in mediating antiviral defenses. We have shown that IFN-I mediate transient up-regulation of a distinct subset of lymphocyte surface activation markers on both B and T cells in vivo independent of cognate antigen: a state referred to as 'partial lymphocyte activation'. Here we investigated in vitro the possibility that partial lymphocyte activation may serve to lower the...[Show more]
