Reduced IL-2 and IL-4 mRNA expression in CD4+ T cells from bovine leukemia virus-infected cows with persistent lymphocytosis.


The role of T-helper (Th) responses in the subclinical progression of bovine leukemia virus (BLV) infection was explored by determining the contribution of CD4+ T cells to the expression of mRNAs encoding interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma), interleukin-2 (IL-2), interleukin-4 (IL-4), and interleukin-10 (IL-10) in BLV-infected cattle. Relative levels of mRNA… (More)
