Tetramer staining for the detection of HLA-specific B cells

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

6 Scopus citations


HLA-specific B cells can be identified, quantified, and isolated after staining with HLA tetramers. Quantification of these B cells can in turn identify individuals who are sensitized to HLA antigens and the isolation of these cells facilitates a variety of experimental investigations.
