Immunophenotyping of human CD4+ and CD8+ T cell activation and exhaustion using flow cytometry

MBTP 55  = Miltenyi Biotec-tested panel 55

This application protocol describes the analysis of human CD4+ and CD8+ T cell activation and exhaustion markers after T cell stimulation. To demonstrate this state-of-the-art panel for T cell activation as well as T cell exhaustion of both CD4 T cells and CD8 T cells, PBMCs were stimulated using Miltenyi Biotec’s T Cell TransAct™, human for 72 hours.  The state of activation and exhaustion was defined by CD25, CD223, CD279 (PD-1), and CD69 expression.
