We used the CD8+ cytotoxic T (Tc) cell immune response against the flavivirus, Murray Valley encephalitis virus (MVE), restricted by the H-2Kk major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecule, to investigate immunodominance. Split-clone limiting dilution analysis revealed almost exclusive recognition of two peptides, MVE1785 and MVE1971, derived from the viral NS3 protein. The precursor frequency of MVE-reactive Tc cells was determined by limiting dilution analysis for cytotoxic function...[Show more]
