Interleukin-4 induced down-regulation of skin homing receptor expression by human viral-specific CD8 T cells may contribute to atopic risk of cutaneous infection.
Factors controlling the expression of cutaneous lymphocyte-associated antigen (CLA) by T cells are poorly understood, but data from murine and human CD4(+) T cell systems have suggested that cytokines play an important role. However, there are no data examining the influence of cytokines on the expression of CLA by human antigen-specific CD8(+) T cells. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) were isolated from 10 HLA-A*0201-positive healthy individuals. Using HLA-peptide tetrameric complex...Expand abstract
