Cytomegaloviruses are species specific and human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is unable to establish a productive infection in mice. Yet murine CMV (MCMV) share many biological properties with HCMV making MCMV infection of mice a widely used model for spatial and temporal analysis of CMV pathogenesis and antiviral immunity.  We take advantage of this model and use immune deficient mice to decipher gd T cell anti-CMV immunity and test the role of important components of the immune system in gd-T cell mediated host protection.
