Abnormal immune response of CCR5-deficient mice to ocular infection with herpes simplex virus type 1.


Ocular herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) infection elicits a strong inflammatory response that is associated with production of the beta chemokines CCL3 and CCL5, which share a common receptor, CCR5. To gain insight into the role of these molecules in ocular immune responses, the corneas of wild-type (WT) and CCR5-deficient (CCR5-/-) mice were infected… (More)
