Characterisation of tissue homing CD8+ T cells in a murine cytomegalovirus model

Abstract:

Experimental T cell-inducing vaccines seek to generate rapidly responsive, tissue-homing, antigen-specific T cells. CMV induces an unusual memory population (memory "inflation") of highly differentiated effector memory CD8+ T cells specific for a subset of epitopes and as such is being tested as a vaccine vector. Clearly understanding of the factors involved in memory inflation and tissue-associated CD8+ T cells generated by CMV will aid vaccine design and is of general relevance for tissu...
