SAP mediates specific cytotoxic T-cell functions in X-linked lymphoproliferative disease.


Cytotoxic T cells (CTLs) and natural killer cells play a major role in the immune response to Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection. In X-linked lymphoproliferative (XLP) disease, a severe immunodeficiency, immunodysregulatory phenomena are observed following EBV infection, suggesting that defects exist in these effector populations. The gene defective in XLP… (More)
