Immunodominant tuberculosis CD8 antigens preferentially restricted by HLA-B

PLoS Pathogens

Abstract

CD8(+) T cells are essential for host defense to intracellular bacterial pathogens such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb), Salmonella species, and Listeria monocytogenes, yet the repertoire and dominance pattern of human CD8 antigens for these pathogens remains poorly characterized.

Downstream Antiviral T Cell

Immunology - Virus

The immune reactions to nonenveloped viruses are predominantly humoral responses against extracellular viruses, a process that results in lysis and death of the infected cell, and because viral antigens are not present on the cell membrane. In contrast, cell-mediated immunity, together with humoral immune response, plays a major role in the defense against enveloped viral infections. Discover the latest research on immunology and virus here.

Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis is an infectious disease usually caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacteria. Discover the latest research on tuberculosis here.

Active Tuberculosis

NK Cells: Viral Immunity

Natural Killer (NK) cells are critical for the containment of viral replication, particularly during early infection. Some viruses such as HIV and influenza have developed mechanisms to evade NK detection and infect the host. Here is the latest research on NK cells and viral immunity.

Human Immune Variation: Genetic, Gender & Time

Establishing the normal range of phenotypic variation within and between individuals requires consideration of contributions from genetics and the environment. Find the latest research on variations in the human immune system here.

Influenza

Influenza, commonly known as the flu, is an infectious disease caused by an influenza virus.Symptoms can be mild to severe. The most common symptoms include: high fever, runny nose, sore throat, muscle pains, headache, coughing, sneezing, and feeling tired. Discover the latest research on influenza here.

Influenza Virus

Influenza viruses comprise a major class of human respiratory pathogens, responsible for causing morbidity and mortality worldwide. Discover the latest research on Influenza Viruses here.

Tuberculosis Infection

Listeriosis

Listeriosis is mainly a food-borne illness caused by l. monocytogenes; people most prone to the disease are pregnant women, newborns, elderly, and those with hiv or other diseases compromising immunity. Discover the latest research on listeriosis here.

Viral Respiratory Diseases

Viral respiratory infections can affect the upper or lower respiratory tract. These lung and airway infections can be caused by numerous different viruses and can be dangerous for those who have a weakened immune system. Discover the latest research on viral respiratory diseases here.

Co-operation in Effector Responses

Co-operation of immune cells in both innate and adaptive immunity is essential in mounting an appropriate immune effector cell response. Discover the latest research on Co-operation of Effector Responses here.

Initial Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Infection

Follicular T Helper Cells

Follicular t helper cells are an important subset of helper t-cells which help to the formation of germinal centers and b-cells differentiation. Discover the latest research on follicular t helper cells here.

Influenza Drug Therapy

The influenza virus is a common viral infection that can rapidly evolve and render previous vaccines ineffective. There are two types of FDA approved drug treatments for the influenza virus, neuraminidase inhibitors and M2-inhibitors. Discover the latest research on influenza drug therapy here.

Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases occur as a result of an attack by the immune system on the body’s own tissues resulting in damage and dysfunction. There are different types of autoimmune diseases, in which there is a complex and unknown interaction between genetics and the environment. Discover the latest research on autoimmune diseases here.

Cross-Priming

Cross-priming is the process whereby professional APC, mainly dendritic cells, prime t-cells by presenting antigens processed from proteins of other cells such as tumor cells or virus-infected cells. Discover the latest research on cross-priming here.

Immune System in Humans: Tissues & Ages

Mapping the human immune system spatially, within and between tissues, will provide the basis for studying mechanisms of tissue residency and the effects of aging. Find new research on analysis of the immune system by multiple approaches here.

Human Immune Variation: Genetics, Gender & Time

Establishing the normal range of phenotypic variation within and between individuals requires consideration of contributions from genetics and the environment. Find the latest research on variations in the human immune system here.

Emerging Infectious Diseases

Emerging Infectious Diseases are defined as those whose incidence in humans has increased in the past two decades or threaten to increase in the near future. Discover the latest research on Emerging Infectious Diseases.
