SGM LaTeX2e(2002/01/18) P1: FHD PAMER Subsequently, the MHC class Ib molecule, H2-M3, was found to present L. monocytogenes–derived N-formyl methionine peptides to CD8 T cells (225, 226). Most laboratory mouse strains (BALB/c, C57BL/6, C3H, SJL) express identical alleles of H2-M3, explaining the apparent lack of MHC restriction. Three Listeriaderived peptides recognized by H2-M3-restricted clones have been identified, all of which are short, hydrophobic, and contain N-formyl methionine at the amino terminus (227–229).

Mice lacking T, B, and NK cells are not more susceptible to early intestinal infection with Listeria than wild-type mice, suggesting that mucosal T cells, at least in na¨ıve mice, do not play a major role in defense (223). , they recognized Listeria-infected macrophages from diverse mouse strains (224). 11 Feb 2003 Annu.

CD8 T CELL RESPONSES TO PATHOGENS P1: FHD 47 The complex life cycle of the pathogen involving invasion of two distinct host cells types, one of which lacks MHC class I expression, implies that different arms of the immune system are utilized to combat the distinct life cycle forms of the parasite. Studies using the rodent parasites Plasmodium berghei and Plasmodium yoelli have shown that CD8 T cells are critical for protective immunity specifically against liver stages of infection.
