A Toxoplasma gondii Superantigen: Biological effects and implications for the host-parasite interaction.

Abstract

Superantigens exert their biological effects by activating large families of T cells, based on expression of the variable beta chain of the T-cell receptor. As a result, the reactive cells proliferate, secrete high levels of inflammatory cytokines, and ultimately die or become anergic to further stimulation. It is now becoming clear that the intracellular… (More)
