Lung Clearance Assay
Authors:  Pinchas Tsukerman and Ofer Mandelboim, date: 03/05/2013, view: 7763, Q&A: 0
Lung clearance assay tests the ability of innate immune cells (mainly NK cells) to eradicate in vivo cells injected via the tail vein of the mice. This assay helps to elucidate the role played by NK cells and their receptors (if the mice ...
