Mouse model experiments showed that TLR adaptor protein MYD88 (myeloid differentiation primary response gene 88) dependent immune response also plays a role in protection against the CHIKV virus.24 Though not much is known about the exact role of the adaptive immune response against the CHIKV infection, mouse models lacking T and B cells (recombination activating gene 2 [RAG2]) show higher level of viraemia endorsing the vitality of the adaptive immune response in CHIKV elimination.
