Cytotoxic T cells are elicited during acute infection of mice with lactate dehydrogenase-elevating virus but disappear during the chronic phase of infection.


Lactate dehydrogenase-elevating virus (LDV) invariably establishes a life-long viremic infection in mice, which is maintained by replication of LDV in a renewable subpopulation of macrophages and escape from all host immune responses. We now demonstrate that cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) that specifically lyse LDV-infected macrophages and 3T3 cells… (More)
