An altered metabolism could contribute to the low activation of neonatal CD8+T cells

Summary: 

The low response to infection in neonatal T cells contributes to a high incidence of morbidity and mortality. Here we evaluated the effect of the cytoplasmic and mitochondrial levels of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) of neonatal CD8+T cells on their low activation. This model captures the interplay between antigen recognition with ROS and metabolic status in T cell responses. This model displays alternative stable states, which corresponds to different cell fates, i.e. quiescent, activated and anergic, depending on ROS status.
