The site of OVA expression inside the transgenic parasite has influenced the cellular immune responses in which cytosolic OVA leads to stimulation of CD4+ T cells and IFN-γ production. To confirm whether OVA expressing transgenic T. gondii can induce T cell proliferation, CD4+ T cells were labelled with CFSE and the in vitro response of the cells showed the cytosolic OVA failed to show any T cell response, but OVA expressed at the parasitophorous vacuole induced T cell proliferation [25]
