Table 1 Exposure to DEP did not interfere with T cell proliferation

From: Diesel exhaust particle exposure in vitro impacts T lymphocyte phenotype and function

  % Ki-67+T lymphocytes
  Untreated E4 E5
Resting T lymphocytes 0.13 ± 0.02 0.12 ± 0.03 0.12 ± 0.03
Activated T lymphocytes:
anti-CD3 (2.5 μg/ml) 71 ± 5 69 ± 6 67 ± 5
anti-CD3 (1.25 μg/ml) 23 ± 4 22 ± 2 21 ± 3
  1. Data are expressed as mean ± SD and are obtained from independent experiments performed in T cells from 15 healthy donors after cell treatment with E4 or E5 particles (both used at 30 μg/ml for 72 h) in the presence (activated T lymphocytes) or absence (resting T lymphocytes) of anti-CD3 mAb.
