ELISpot activity against AMA1-14e after CD4+ or CD8+ T cell depletion. PBMC from v001 and v005 were tested in IFN-γ ELISpot assays after CD4+ or CD8+ T cell depletion (top panel), and in ICS assay for total % CD4+ or CD8+ T cell IFN-γ (lower panel), with Ap1-12 (all 153 15-mer peptides), AMA1-14e, and AMA1 recombinant protein (AMA rp). ELISpot depletion and ICS assays show that AMA1-14e and Ap1-12 are both strongly recognized by CD8+ T cells. However, recombinant AMA1 protein is preferentially recognized by CD4+ T cells.
