Alterations in Monocyte CD16 in Association with Diabetes Complications
The effect of diabetes on circulating monocytes. Leukocytes and monocytes were identified by flow cytometry. Shown in control and diabetic subjects are (A) the CD45+ leukocyte population and (B) the CD45+CD14+ monocyte population. (C) Representative forward scatter and side scatter plots from a control and diabetic subject showing CD45+CD14+ monocytes (red dots). The three subsets of monocytes grouped according to size and granularity are shown in the diabetic sample as (a), (b), and (c). * different between groups.
