  • a Highly purified OX62+ CD4+ and OX62+ CD4 VDCs from noninfected and C. albicans-infected rats at 2 and 6 weeks after the third round of infection were stained with PE-conjugated anti-CD80 or anti-CD134L MAb in combination with an anti-CD86 or anti-CD5 MAb followed by biotin-conjugated RAM IgG (1:50 dilution) and tricolor-conjugated streptavidin.

  • b Data are from two separate experiments.
