Flow cytometric analysis of lymphocyte subset phenotypes comparing normal children and adults.
However, no difference in the frequency of lymphocyte subsets was observed.
[sup][17] We analyzed the lymphocyte subsets expressed as a percentage of total lymphocytes by flow cytometry.
To show the lymphocyte source of each granzyme, the total gzmA- or gzmB-positive cells were selected and, the lymphocyte subsets to which those gzm-expressing cells belong, identified.
The percentages and counts of the lymphocyte subsets including [CD3.sup.+] T cells, [CD4.sup.+] T cells, [CD8.sup.+] T cells, [CD19.sup.+] B cells, [CD.sup.3-]CD16 + CD56NK cells, and [CD3.sup.+] CD16 + CD56NKT cells, as well as CD4/CD8 ratio were measured.
Divergent hematological traits in swine may confer physiological differences, so we studied transcriptome profiles in spleens of Yorkshire pigs with different peripheral blood T lymphocyte subsets. The results showed that 2050 differentially expressed transcripts were identified, with 1554 up-regulated and 496 up-regulated in high and low T lymphocyte groups, respectively.
In view of the immune regulatory role of CD4+ lymphocytes, we explored the early changes in T lymphocyte subsets. The present results showed decreased circulatory Th1, Th2, and Th17 cell counts and an imbalance of Th1/Th2 cells in the circulation of OHCA patients after ROSC.
Fluorescent staining of specific epitopes is the gold standard for definition of lymphocyte subsets. However, immunophenotypic analysis is costly, relatively labor-intensive, and not trivial to standardize.
Then, the patient has been examined again for flow cytometric tests and lymphocyte subsets were found to be normal again.
