• peripheral blood
  • The mononuclear leukocytes from peripheral blood samples of individuals with ( n = 30) and without ( n = 48) colonic polyps were examined for their abilities to carry out unscheduled DNA synthesis (UDS) induced by N -acetoxy- N -2-fluorenylacetamide (N-AcO-2-FAA). (aacrjournals.org)
  • Hence, our aim was to determine the effects of 6 mo of dietary supplementation with an n-3 FA preparation rich in DHA on global gene expression in peripheral blood mononuclear cells. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • In the method originally devised by Boyum [ 3 ], centrifugation on a density gradient, a concoction of a polysucrose (Ficoll) to aggregate erythrocytes and sodium diatrizoate (Hypaque) to adjust density, acts as the first step to separate out the peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC), followed by dextran sedimentation to purify the neutrophils from the erythrocytes.

  • step
  • Since in the sedimentation step the leukocytes are incubated with dextran, we have raised the likelihood that cellular activation would occur with mediator release leading to neutrophil activation. (hindawi.com)
