CD4 and CD8 molecules are co-receptors of T cell receptors which interact specifically with MHC class II and I, respectively, during antigen presentation. Here we investigated CD4 and CD8 expression patterns in a fish, Japanese flounder, Paralichthys olivaceus in response to infection and tuberculin injection. The CD4-1 mRNA level was gradually and weakly increased in trunk kidney after infection with Streptococcus iniae, Edwardsiella tarda and viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus (VHSV), while… CONTINUE READING
