Role of antigen persistence and dose for CD4+ T-cell exhaustion and recovery.


It is currently not understood how some chronic infections exhaust antigen-specific T cells over time and which pathogen components contribute to exhaustion. Here, we dissected the behavior of primed CD4(+) T cells exposed to persistent antigen using an inducible transgenic mouse system that allowed us to control antigen presentation as the only… (More)
