Gamma interferon production, but not perforin-mediated cytolytic activity, of T cells is required for prevention of toxoplasmic encephalitis in BALB/c mice genetically resistant to the disease.


We previously showed the requirement of both T cells and gamma interferon (IFN-gamma)-producing non-T cells for the genetic resistance of BALB/c mice to the development of toxoplasmic encephalitis (TE). In order to define the role of IFN-gamma production and the perforin-mediated cytotoxicity of T cells in this resistance, we obtained immune T cells from… (More)
