Strategy for T cell and monocytes evaluation by flow cytometry. The cell populations were defined by nonspecific fluorescence from the forward (FSC) and side scatter (SSC) as parameters of cell size and granularity, respectively. Lymphocytes region was determined using SSC × FSC plot (G1) and monocytes region (G2) were selected based on their granularity and expression of CD14 (a). (b)represents the strategy for monocytes subsets classification through the expression of CD14 and CD16. Representative graph of one experiment.
