Cross-linking of the HCV E2 protein has been shown in vitro to lead to co-stimulation of T cells [44], potentially altering responses, and may inhibit migration and chemokine secretion [45]. However, while such predominantly in vitro data indicates that HCV proteins may affect HCV-specific T cells, it should be noted 21 that as these proteins are likely to be ubiquitously present, such interactions have the potential to influence all T cell responses, a possibility that is difficult to reconcile with the observed lack of generalized immunosuppression in this infection [1].
