Subpopulations of early thymocytes. A cross-correlation flow cytometric analysis of adult mouse Ly-2-L3T4-(CD8-CD4-) thymocytes using eight different surface markers.

Putative early thymocytes, the Ly-2-L3T4-(CD8-CD4-) cells representing 3 to 4% of adult CBA mouse thymic lymphocytes, were isolated in high purity (99.5%). They were then stained by using mAb and analyzed by flow cytometry for the expression of six additional surface antigenic markers. Cross-correlation of the data obtained from a complete series of… CONTINUE READING
