Trapping and apoptosis of novel subsets of memory T lymphocytes expressing CCR6 in the spleen of HIV-infected patients.


CCR6, a homeostatic chemokine receptor, is shown here to characterize subsets of both central and effector memory T cells that secrete high levels of IL-2 and TNF-alpha in response to polyclonal and antigen-specific stimulation. CCR6(+) T lymphocytes disappeared dramatically from the peripheral blood of HIV-infected patients as HIV disease progressed. The… (More)
