LIGHT Induces Distinct Signals to Clear an AAV-Expressed Persistent Antigen in the Mouse Liver and to Induce Liver Inflammation

BACKGROUND Infection with adeno-associated virus (AAV) vector with liver tropism leads to persistent expression of foreign antigens in the mouse liver, with no significant liver inflammation or pathology. This provides a model to investigate antigen persistence in the liver and strategies to modulate host immunity to reduce or clear the foreign antigen… CONTINUE READING
