Immune responses to Epstein–Barr virus: molecular interactions in the virus evasion of CD8+ T cell immunity

By Martin Rowe and Jianmin Zuo


Persistent viruses have mechanisms for modulating the host immune responses that are essential for achieving a lifelong virus–host balance while minimizing the viral pathogenicity. Here we review some of the immune-modulating mechanisms evolved by the ubiquitous but potentially oncogenic Epstein–Barr virus, with particular emphasis on the molecular mechanisms of genes interfering with HLA class I antigen presentatio
