Abstract

Vaccinia virus infection can confer immunity to smallpox by inducing potent T cell and antibody responses. While the CD8 T cell response to vaccinia virus has been well characterized, less is known about factors required for priming and memory for the CD4 T cells. Focusing on two recently described epitopes, we show that after intranasal infection, both I1L and L4R epitopes are co-dominant during the acute response, but the I1L epitope dominates during memory. CD4 T cell priming was intact in the absence of CD80/86, however secondary responses were reduced. This contrasts with our previous data showing CD80/86-CD28 interaction is required for optimal primary and memory CD8 T cell responses. The absence of CD80/86 also changed the immunodominance hierarchy during memory, with the I1L and L4R responses becoming co-dominant in knockout mice. These data highlight different costimulatory requirements for primary CD4 and CD8 T cell responses to vaccinia virus.
