Sample text

This FcRn is homologous to MHC class I molecules composed of an integral membrane glycoprotein with an apparent molecular weight of 40–45 kDa, the α-chain, that is non-covalently associated with β2microglobulin [85, 86]. 0 there is high affinity for IgG; at neutral pH, as in maternal blood, the affinity of the FcRn is 100-fold lower for IgG [83, 85]. IgG, which is present at high concentrations in the maternal blood (10–20 mg/ml) is internalized via fluid phase endocytosis by the syncytiotrophoblast, followed by binding to FcRn in the acidic environment of endosomes [82, 85].

Quite different to these described receptor-ligand interactions is the function of the UL83, encoding the CMV tegument protein (pp65). As this protein is neither secreted nor expressed on the infected cell surface, the mode of operation starts after lysis of an infected cell, leading to extracellular exposure of pp65 to the NK cell complex NKp30-ζ. Binding to this complex results in dissociation of the signalling ζ-chain from the recognition NKp30 receptor, which is rendered as an inhibition of NK cell activation [34, 43].

In vitro and in vivo studies have shown that CD4+ cells precede the emergence of the CD8+ T cell response by 24 h up to several days [54, 56, 57]. Analysis of the CD4+ T cell responses to CMV has lagged behind that of the CD8+ T cell response. However, antigen-specific cells have been identified by intracellular cytokine production, showing that CD4+ T cells often respond to the same ORFs as CD8+ T cells. Individuals respond to a median of 12 ORFs; five ORFs (UL55, UL83 [pp65], UL86, UL99, and UL122/123 ]IE]) were recognized by more than half the long-term carriers tested, and typically, 10 % of the CD4+ T cell memory pool are specific to CMV [54].
