Background information

NKT cells represent a subpopulation of T cells that possesses properties of NK cells. NKT cells can be stimulated through contact with antigen or by cytokines such as IL-12 to release large amounts of cytokines and to exert cytotoxic effects. NKT cells are a crucial part of the innate immune system and are involved in the development of autoimmune diseases, in tumor immunology as well as in immunity against viruses, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic pathogens.

Detailed separation procedure

In a first step, NK cells and monocytes are magnetically labeled by using a cocktail of biotin-conjugated antibodies and Anti-Biotin MicroBeads. The labeled cells are subsequently depleted by separation over a MACS® Column. In the second step, CD3

CD56
+
NKT cells are isolated by positive selection from the pre-enriched NKT cell fraction using CD56 MicroBeads.

Downstream applications

CD3

CD56
+
NKT cells can be used for a variety of studies such as analysis of cytokine secretion, gene expression analysis of cell subsets, analysis of the functional role of cell surface receptors, cytotoxic and cytolytic activity.
