Sterile immunity to the Gram-positive facultative intracellular bacterium Listeria monocytogenes critically depends on cytotoxic CD8+ T lymphocytes. However, the cytotoxic cell population able to kill infected cells before specific T cells are generated is not well characterised. Based on histological observations and the use of monoclonal antibodies… CONTINUE READING
