Abstract

Compared to other organs, murine cytomegalovirus (MCMV) replication in the salivary gland is uniquely resistant to CD8 T-cell control. The contribution of viral genes that interfere with antigen presentation (VIPRs) to this resistance was assessed using a mutant lacking MCMV's known VIPRs. Salivary gland titers of the VIPR-deficient virus were at least 10-fold lower than those of the wild type during the persistent phase of infection; the defect was reversed by depleting CD8 T cells. Thus, VIPRs contribute to CD8 T cells' inability to control virus in the salivary gland.
