1. Comparison of Two Flow Cytometric Methods for Detection of Human Invariant Natural Killer T Cells (iNKT)

Mohammad Fereidouni; Farhzad Jabbari Azad; Mahmoud Mahmoudi; Abdolreza Varasteh; Reza Farid Hosseini

Volume 7, Issue 1 , Winter 2010, Pages 1-7

  Background: Invariant natural killer cells (iNKT) are an important immunoregulatory T cell subset. Currently several flow cytometry-based approaches exist for the identifi-cation of iNKT cells, which rely on using the 6B11 monoclonal antibody or a combina-tion of anti-Vα24 and anti-Vβ11 antibodies. ...  Read More
