AbstractRespiratory syncytial virus causes lower respiratory tract infections in infancy and old age, affecting also immunocompromised patients. The viral fusion protein is an important vaccine candidate eliciting antibody and cell-mediated immune responses. CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) are known to have a role in both lung pathology and viral clearance. In BALB/c mice, the fusion protein epitope F249-258 is presented to CTLs by the murine major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecule Kd. In cells infected with recombinant vaccinia viruses encoding the fusion protein, F249-258 is presented by MHC class I molecules through pathways that are independent of the transporters associated with antigen processing (TAP). We have now found that F249-258 can be generated from non-infectious virus from an exogenous source. Antigen processing follows a lysosomal pathway that appears to require autophagy. As a practical consequence, inactivated virus suffices for in vivo priming of virus-specific CTLs.
