Isolation and in vivo Transfer of Antigen Presenting Cells
Authors:  Pooja Arora, Shalu Sharma Kharkwal and Steven A. Porcelli, date: 10/05/2014, view: 5172, Q&A: 0
Transfer of antigen presenting cells in vivo is a method used by immunologists to examine the potency of antigen presentation by a selected population of cells. This method is most commonly used to analyze presentation of protein antigens ...

Generation of Busulfan Chimeric Mice for the Analysis of T Cell Population Dynamics
Authors:  Thea Hogan, Andrew Yates and Benedict Seddon, date: 12/20/2017, view: 397, Q&A: 0
This protocol was developed to generate chimeric mice in which T lymphocytes could be stratified by age on the basis of congenic marker expression. The conditioning drug busulfan is used to ablate host haematopoietic stem cells while leaving the ...

Analysing Temporal Dynamics of T Cell Division in vivo Using Ki67 and BrdU Co-labelling by Flow Cytometry
Authors:  Thea Hogan, Andrew Yates and Benedict Seddon, date: 12/20/2017, view: 514, Q&A: 0
This protocol was developed to increase the richness of information available from in vivo T cell proliferation studies. DNA labelling techniques such as BrdU incorporation allow precise control of label administration and withdrawal, so ...
