Abstract

The respective role of the two receptors of TNF in experimental cerebral malaria (CM) was investigated. During CM, a significant upregulation of TNF-receptor 2 (TNFR2), but not of TNFR1, was found in brain microvessels of susceptible, but not resistant mice. Mice genetically deficient for TNFR2 (Tnfr2°) were significantly protected from CM, while TNFR1-deficient (Tfnr1°) mice were as susceptible as wild-type mice. The protection of Tnfr2° mice could be explained by their absence of ICAM-1 upregulation and leukocyte sequestration, known to occur in brain microvessels of CM-susceptible animals.
