Effects of cryopreservation with polyethylene glycol on the expression of CD11b and CD62L on the surface of polymorphonuclear leukocytes.

In experimental and clinical studies, expression of surface adhesion molecules such as ß2-integrine (CD11b) and L-selectin (CD62L) on polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMNL) are investigated to assess certain crucial innate immune functions. Because the expression of CD11b and CD62L on PMNL can alter they cannot be quantified reliably when the time between blood… (More)
