Human Gene Set: KAECH_NAIVE_VS_DAY8_EFF_CD8_TCELL_UP


Standard name KAECH_NAIVE_VS_DAY8_EFF_CD8_TCELL_UP
Systematic name M3012
Brief description Genes up-regulated in na´ve CD8 T cells compared to effector CD8 T cells at the peak expansion phase (day 8 after LCMV-Armstrong infection).
Full description or abstract How and when memory T cells form during an immune response are long-standing questions. To better understand memory CD8 T cell development, a time course of gene expression and functional changes in antigen-specific T cells during viral infection was evaluated. The expression of many genes continued to change after viral clearance in accordance with changes in CD8 T cell functional properties. Even though memory cell precursors were present at the peak of the immune response, these cells did not display hallmark functional traits of memory T cells. However, these cells gradually acquired the memory cell qualities of self-renewal and rapid recall to antigen suggesting the model that antigen-specific CD8 T cells progressively differentiate into memory cells following viral infection.
