A three-colour flow cytometry technique for measuring trophoblast intracellular antigens: the relative expression of TAP1 in human cytotrophoblast and decidual cells.
Flow cytometry is conventionally used to measure cell-surface antigen expression. However, many antigens are found within the cytoplasm, and it is necessary to fix and permeabilize cells to enable antibodies to gain access to them. In this study we have established the conditions for studying intracellular antigens in human trophoblast cells by flow cytometry using an antibody to TAP1 (a key molecule in the process of Class I MHC assembly). We have previously shown by immunocytochemistry that...Expand abstract
