Abstract

The ligand to receptor activator of NF-κB (RANK-L)/ RANK interaction has been implicated in CD40 ligand/CD40-independent T cell priming by dendritic cells. In this report, we show that the coadministration of the RANK-L gene with a Trypanosoma cruzi gene markedly enhances the induction of Trypanosoma Ag-specific CD8+ T cells and improves the DNA vaccine efficacy. A similarly potent adjuvant effect of the RANK-L gene on the induction of Ag-specific CD8+ T cells was also observed when recombinant influenza virus expressing murine malaria Ag was used as an immunogen. In contrast, the coadministration of the CD40L gene was not effective in these systems. Our results demonstrated, for the first time, the potent immunostimulatory effect of the RANK-L gene to improve the CD8+ T cell-mediated immunity against infectious agents.
