The Presence of an Endogenous Murine Leukemia Virus Sequence Correlates with the Peripheral Expansion of T Cells Bearing the BALB Invariant Delta ( BID ) T Cell Receptor

Snmmal"y 78 T cells participate in immune responses during viral, bacterial, and parasitic infections. However, it is not clear whether they recognize antigens produced by pathogens, or are actually reactive to self-ligands generated during the course of infection. In this paper, we report that the presence of the self-ligand that selectively expands a… CONTINUE READING
