Gonococci cause immunosuppression by engaging a coinhibitory receptor on T lymphocytes
Research output: Contribution to journal › Letter
Gonococci that bind the coinhibitory receptor CEACAM1 appear to down-regulate the activation and proliferation of CD4+ T cells. Such infection-induced immunosuppression helps explain why there is little specific immune response associated with gonococcal disease.
