NK1.1 cells are required to control T cell hyperactivity during Trypanosoma cruzi infection.

Abstract

BACKGROUND This study evaluated the regulatory function of NK1.1+ cells during Trypanosoma cruzi infection. MATERIAL/METHODS Both thymectomized (Tx C57Bl/6) and euthymic C57Bl/6 mice (C57Bl/6) were infected intraperitoneally with the Tulahuen strain. NK1.1+ cells were depleted in vivo by anti-NK1.1 mAb. Spleen cells were analyzed by flow cytometry for the… (More)
