Phenotypic analysis of B and plasma cells in rhesus macaques

PURPOSE: Our purpose was a broad phenotypic analysis of B and plasma cells regarding differentiation status, activation, proliferation, and chemokine receptor expression in rhesus macaques. We developed two staining panels, which were tested on fresh samples of whole blood or peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs), bone marrow collected from the iliac crest and femur, lymph nodes, spleen, and tonsils (Figure 1, Table 1). A 10-color-panel was developed to mainly focus on B cells, whereas a 11-color panel concentrated on plasmablasts/plasma cells. Both panels are also applicable for whole blood and bone marrow samples from African green monkeys.

CELL TYPE: Fresh whole blood, PBMCs, mononuclear cells of bone marrow, lymph node, spleen, tonsil
