Immunophenotyping of human CD4+ and CD8+ T cell differentiation and exhaustion using flow cytometry (panel A)

MBTP 57  = Miltenyi Biotec-tested panel 57

This application protocol describes the analysis of human CD4+ and CD8+  T cell differentiation and exhaustion markers after T cell stimulation. To demonstrate this state-of-the-art panel for  T cell differentiation as well as T cell exhaustion of both CD4 T cells and CD8 T cells, PBMCs were stimulated for 96 hours using Miltenyi Biotec’s T Cell TransAct™, human. The state of differentiation and exhaustion was defined by CD279 (PD-1), CD336, CD197 (CCR7), and CD45RA expression.

Gating strategy

Figure 1: Gating strategy showing the identification of viable, single CD4+ and CD8+ T cells in human PBMCs.  
Cells were gated in an FSC-H and FSC-A dot plot to eliminate doublets (A). Lymphocytes were selected by a SSClow gate which also excluded debris (B). Dead cells were excluded by gating on 7-AAD− cells (C). CD4+ T cells were identified by expression of CD3 and CD4 (D). CD8+ T cells were identified by expression of CD3 and CD8 (E).
