Description : Human T lymphotropic virus type 1 HTLV-1 Tax (11-19) is an immunodominant HLA-A2-restricted epitope. It is recognized by a high number of CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) in patients with HTLV-1-associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis (HAM/TSP), a demyelinating inflammatory neurologic disease associated with HTLV-1 infection. H-6096 therefore represents a useful tool to elucidate the role of antigen-specific CD8+ CTLs in HAM/TSP.
