Abstract

The influenza A virus model of localized, transient respiratory infection provides a well-defined experimental system for dissecting the induction and maintenance of CD8+ T-cell memory. This review focuses on quantitative and qualitative aspects of the prominent D(b)NP366- and D(b)PA224-specific CD8+ T-cell responses in virus-infected B6 mice. The different virus-specific effector and memory sets are compared by phenotypic [CD62L, interleukin-7 receptor-alpha (IL-7Ralpha), and IL-15Rbeta expression] and functional [interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), and IL-2 production] analyses. Most clonotypes [defined by T-cell receptor (TCR) CDR3beta sequence] generate..
