Human NK-cell phenotypization

Yolanda D. Mahnke, Margaret H. Beddall, Mario Roederer Cytometry PART A, Volume 87, Issue 11, 986-988 (2015)

PURPOSE: The present panel was optimized to enumerate natural killer (NK) cells within peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and to determine their phenotype in terms of NK receptor and differentiation marker expression in healthy individuals. It works well with cryopreserved PBMC and we have observed similar results with fresh specimens. Other tissue types have not been tested (Table 1).
