How do CTL control virus infections? Evidence for prelytic halt of herpes simplex.


Cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) induce in target cells a rapid, prelytic fragmentation of target cell DNA, accompanied by apoptosis. In contrast, complement and (with a few exceptions) chemical and physical means of inducing cytolysis induce necrosis, without DNA fragmentation. The function of the unusual DNA fragmentation induced by CTL remains to be… (More)
