Cord Blood CD14+ Monocytes, Fresh
Human CD14+ monocytes originate in the bone marrow and move via the bloodstream to infected or damaged peripheral tissues. Once at the tissue, monocytes differentiate into specific tissue macrophage or dendritic cells. These cells are responsible for phagocytosis of foreign substances in the body and are capable of killing infected host cells via antibody-mediated cellular cytotoxicity.
Human cord blood CD14+ monocytes are positively selected using immunomagnetic anti-CD14 microbeads from the mononuclear cell fraction. Isolated cells are characterized by flow cytometry to ensure a highly pure and viable cell population.
Cells were obtained using Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved consent forms and protocols.
