Mouse γδ T‐Cell Development Characterized by a 14 Color Flow Cytometry Panel

Terkild Brink Buus, Mia Hamilton Jee, Niels Ødum Cytometry PART A, Volume 95, Issue 7, 726-729 (2010)

PURPOSE: This panel was designed to quantify the distribution of developing γδ T cells within seven development stages related to the programming of distinct effector phenotypes in the murine thymus. Furthermore, the panel was designed to assess the expression of additional surface markers at each development stage within two of the major γδ T‐cell subsets identified by the usage of different V‐segments in their T‐cell receptor (TCR): TCRVγ1.1+ and TCRVγ2+. The panel was developed using thymus from adult C57Bl/6 mice magnetically depleted of CD4 and CD8 expressing cells in order to enrich for the γδ T‐cell population.
