A functional link for major TCR expansions in healthy adults caused by persistent Epstein-Barr virus infection.
Dramatic clonal expansions of unknown functional significance have been documented in the T cell receptor (TCR) alpha beta peripheral blood repertoires of apparently healthy adults. In this study, weExpand

Identification of a Cytotoxic T-Lymphocyte Response to the Novel BARF0 Protein of Epstein-Barr Virus: a Critical Role for Antigen Expression
ABSTRACT The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-encoded BARF0 open reading frame gene products are consistently expressed in EBV-positive Burkitt’s lymphoma (BL) cell lines, nasopharyngeal carcinoma cellExpand

Asymptomatic primary Epstein-Barr virus infection occurs in the absence of blood T-cell repertoire perturbations despite high levels of systemic viral load.
Primary infection with the human herpesvirus, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), may result in subclinical seroconversion or may appear as infectious mononucleosis (IM), a lymphoproliferative disease ofExpand

Development of Epstein-Barr virus-specific memory T cell receptor clonotypes in acute infectious mononucleosis
The importance of cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) in the immunosurveillance of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-infected B cells is firmly established, and the viral antigens of CTL recognition in latentExpand

Human leukocyte antigen phenotype imposes complex constraints on the antigen‐specific cytotoxic T lymphocyte repertoire
The memory response to the immunodominant Epstein‐Barr virus (EBV) epitope FLRGRAYGL, which associates with HLA B8, is exceptionally restricted, being dominated by cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) withExpand

Prevalence of antibodies to Epstein-Barr virus nuclear antigen 2B in persons infected with the human immunodeficiency virus.
We measured the presence of antibodies to the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) nuclear antigen 2B (EBNA2B) in patients with AIDS and related disorders, persons with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)Expand

Dominant cytotoxic T lymphocyte response to the immediate-early trans-activator protein, BZLF1, in persistent type A or B Epstein-Barr virus infection.
Five healthy human leukocyte antigen-B8 (HLA-B8)-positive virus carriers were studied to investigate the CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) response to an HLA-B8-restricted peptide, RAKFKQLLQ, locatedExpand

Identification of type B-specific and cross-reactive cytotoxic T-lymphocyte responses to Epstein-Barr virus.
Persistent Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection is primarily controlled by HLA class I-restricted memory cytotoxic T-cell (CTL) responses which can be reactivated in vitro by stimulation of peripheralExpand

Regulation of interleukin-1beta transcription by Epstein-Barr virus involves a number of latent proteins via their interaction with RBP.
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infects B cells, resulting in the outgrowth of immortalised lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCLs). Here, we demonstrate through the use of intracellular staining thatExpand

Crossreactive recognition of viral, self, and bacterial peptide ligands by human class I-restricted cytotoxic T lymphocyte clonotypes: implications for molecular mimicry in autoimmune disease.
The immunodominant, CD8(+) cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) response to the HLA-B8-restricted peptide, RAKFKQLL, located in the Epstein-Barr virus immediate-early antigen, BZLF1, is characterized by aExpand
