Phenotypic analysis of specific human CD8+ T-cells using peptide-MHC class I multimers for any of four epitopes

PURPOSE: This panel was developed to determine the phenotype of human antigen (Ag)-specific CD8+ T-cells. Ag-specificities are identified by four peptide-major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I (pMHCI) multimers (e.g., against Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and cytomegalovirus (CMV) epitopes). Six markers of T-cell phenotype are used. This panel has been tested on fresh and cryopreserved peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC), as well as bone marrow samples; staining may be performed in 96-well plates to increase throughput.

CELL TYPE: Fresh or cryopreserved PBMC, bone marrow mononuclear cells
