The intracellular parasite Toxoplasma gondii can establish persistent infection in the brain of a mammalian host, a standoff that involves the active participation of host CD8 T cells to control infection. CD8 T cells generally protect against intracellular pathogens by local delivery of effector molecules upon recognition of specific pathogen Ags on invaded host cells. However, the interactions between CD8 T cells, T. gondii, and APCs in the brain have not yet been examined. In this study we...[Show more]
