Murine in vivo CD8+ T Cell Killing Assay
Authors:  Myoungjoo V. Kim, Weiming Ouyang, Will Liao, Michael Q. Zhang and Ming O. Li, date: 07/05/2014, view: 9736, Q&A: 0
Antigen-specific killing ability of effector CD8+ T cells is critical for protective immunity against infection. Here, we describe in vivo cytotoxic T cell assay to examine effector function of antigen-specific CD8+ T ...
Murine in vitro Memory T Cell Differentiation
Authors:  Myoungjoo V. Kim, Weiming Ouyang, Will Liao, Michael Q. Zhang and Ming O. Li, date: 07/05/2014, view: 6537, Q&A: 0
Upon pathogen encounter, naïve CD8+ T cells are primed and undergo massive clonal expansion. A fraction of effector CD8+ T cells remains during the contraction phase and differentiate into memory T cells critical for mounting ...
