Human Cytomegalovirus Inhibits Major Histocompatibility Complex Class II Expression By Disruption of the Jak/Stat Pathway


Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is a ubiquitous herpesvirus that is able to persist for decades in its host. HCMV has evolved protean countermeasures for anti-HCMV cellular immunity that facilitate establishment of persistence. Recently it has been shown that HCMV inhibits interferon gamma (IFN-gamma)-stimulated MHC class II expression, but the mechanism for… (More)
