Infection with Plasmodium berghei ANKA induces cerebral malaria in susceptible mice. Brain-sequestered CD8(+) T cells are responsible for this pathology. We have evaluated the role of CCR2, a chemokine receptor expressed on CD8(+) T cells. Infected CCR2-deficient mice were as susceptible to cerebral malaria as wild-type mice were, and CD8(+) T-cell migration to the brain was not abolished
