Negative regulation of CD8+ T cell function by the IFN-induced and double-stranded RNA-activated kinase PKR.


The IFN-induced and dsRNA-activated kinase (PKR) mediates the antiviral and antiproliferative effects of IFN-alpha and IFN-gamma. Despite these findings, PKR:(-/-) mice have no overt immunological phenotype. Here we tested the role of PKR in cellular immunity by determining the induction and elicitation of contact hypersensitivity in PKR:(-/-) mice, a model… (More)
