Keyword - Inhibition of host adaptive immune response by virus (KW-1080)

Keywords navigation



Viral protein involved in the evasion of host adaptive immune response. Upon infection, the innate immune system provides mechanisms for the rapid sensing and elimination of viruses. Adaptive immunity has evolved to provide a broader and more finely tuned repertoire of recognition for both self- and nonself-antigens. A lot of viruses escape the adaptive immune response by different mechanisms including interference with the presentation of antigenic peptides at the surface of infected cells.
