    Lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV) is a common infection of rodents first identified over eighty years ago in St. Louis, MO, U.S.A. It is best known for its application in immunological studies. The history of LCMV closely correlates with the development of modern immunology. With the use...

    Abstract: Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV)-based lentiviral vectors can be targeted to restricted cell types by pseudotyping with envelopes from other viruses. An FIV vector expressing bacterial β-galactosidase (β-gal) and pseudotyped with lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV)...

    It has been shown previously that CD8β in vitro increases the range and the sensitivity of antigen recognition and in vivo plays an important role in the thymic selection of CD8+ T cells. Consistent with this, we report here that CD8+ T cells from CD8β knockout (KO) P14 TCR transgenic mice...
