    Viral proteins such as Tat, Nef, and Vpu can downregulate cellular expression of MHC class I molecules that are necessary for CTL recognition of infected cells (233–235). Increased expression of killer inhibitory receptors may also inhibit CTL activity (236). Another mechanism responsible for the loss of CTL activity is the selective accumulation of CD8ϩDRϩ HIV-specific CTL that lack the interleukin (IL)–2 receptor and are defective in clonogenic potential (237). Finally, the ability of HIV to escape CTL responses by viral mutation or by exhaustion of CTL clones due to high concentration of antigen helps explain the loss of CTL-mediated control over viral replication (238,239).
