Development of prophylactic vaccines against Toxoplasma gondii is based on the observation that latently infected subjects are protected against secondary infection during pregnancy. Cocktail DNA vaccines have been shown to provide high resistance to parasite challenge, and latently infected mice are protected against acute disease. In order to characterize the associated Th1 cellular immune responses in vivo, we used H2-K(k) bone marrow macrophage cell lines constitutively expressing T. gondii GRA1, GRA7 or ROP2 antigens, for the in vivo characterization of antigen-specific T cells in an a…
