Gonococci cause immunosuppression by engaging a coinhibitory receptor on T lymphocytes

Normark, Staffan; Albiger, Barbara LU and Jonsson, Ann-Beth (2002) In Nature Immunology 3(3). p.210-211
Abstract
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.
